We’re incredibly lucky to live in the Beehive State, where we’re surrounded by beauty even at home. No matter where you live here, you’re never far from Utah’s mountains and deserts. Sometimes, though, it’s nice to stay elsewhere – where you can just relax and enjoy some downtime from your everyday life. Do you need a staycation? Check out this desert resort in the middle of nowhere.
Amangiri Resort is located on 600 acres and offers stunning views of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The address is 1 Kayenta Road, Canyon Point in Utah.
The name Amangiri originates from the Sanskrit words for "peaceful mountain," which is very fitting. This resort blends right in with the landscape of the desert, creating a luxurious setting for its guests.
It's on the Utah/Arizona border, just a few miles from Lake Powell.
You can see that it's close to many of Utah's national and state parks, too.
From the moment you enter resort's entrance lounge, you'll immediately feel relaxed.
The architecture is designed to blend in with the desert landscape, creating a feeling of peace and solitude. Imagine feeling as though you're one with nature in the desert - but at the same time being surrounded by luxurious amenities.
The main pool is at the center of the resort.
Lounging on the deck, or soaking in the refreshing water under the endless sky of the desert...an experience that's hard to find elsewhere.
The library is a warm, inviting space for quiet conversation, reading and relaxing.
