Amangiri Resort & Spa
Canyon Point, Utah

“You employ stone, wood, and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces: that is construction. Ingenuity is at work. But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good. I am happy and I say: This is beautiful. That is Architecture”. (Le Corbusier, renowned 20th century architect)

Amangiri Spa and Resort is the embodiment of Architecture as an art form. As earth meets sky in the wonder of Southern Utah, Amangiri holds true to its name “peaceful mountain” tucked away from the stresses of daily life and easily mistaken as the perfect mirage. Nestled in a desert of splendor life imitates art as Amanjiri is the perfect painting constructed on the canvas of Lake Powell, the Navajo mountains and Grand Staircase- Escalante national monument. Enter this haven and be welcomed by a heated pool surrounding a 160 million rock escarpment as its centerpiece, a 25,000ft spa, a desert lounge as an open air living room and Via Ferrata skyladders or balloon rides available to catch all the majesty of Amanjiri in the skies.

Guests enter the resort from a winding road that leads to the centers pavilion, symbolizing the departure from the norms of everyday life into another world. Built in 2009 as an addition to the luxury brand of Amanresorts, Founder Adrian Zecha has created a space so treasured that guests like Brad Pritt and Angelina Jolie are fan favorites and reservations are always a hot commodity.
