For this week’s Seclusion Sunday— our monthlong, weekly series that takes you to the most secluded and socially distanced hotels around North America — we’re sharing Amangiri (@amangiri) and its new glamping-like enclave, Camp Sarika.
Located in Southern Utah, Amangiri consists of 600 acres that exude seclusion and isolation. It’s often deemed as one of the United States’ most alluring resorts (easily seen in @ave.camilla‘s picture).
Design-wise, suites are constructed with fine lines and natural materials, which serve as a nod to the local environment. Guestroom blueprints boast stone floors, concrete walls, natural timbers, and fittings in blackened steel; each suite has an outdoor lounge and fireplace with breathtaking views, some even have roof terraces and private pools.
Unrivaled privacy and ambrosial cuisine meet at The Chinle, a private dining-site that’s a short drive, hike, or horseback ride from Amangiri. Plotted mesa-side with panoramic views of the surrounding desert, barely anyone is around due to an intentioned limited capacity. Back in the main building, The Dining Room offers a four-course ‘Spirit of the Journey’ tasting menu with matched wines pays gastronomic tribute to the five tribes of the region.
Guests looking to stay somewhere on the glamping spectrum should elect to stay at recently opened Camp Sarika, an on-property collection of 10 elegant and spacious one- and two-bedroom tented pavilions that enrich one’s wilderness experience to unparalleled comfort and privacy. Complementing the clean lines and natural material palette of Amangiri’s suites, the generously proportioned pavilions each have indoor living and dining areas, as well oversized terraces with fire pits and heated plunge pools — the perfect mirador to the surrounding desert panorama and its sensational sunsets.
With its proximity to a wealth of mesmerizing preserves, including Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Parks, the hotel is a magnet for nature enthusiasts who crave both a luxe and outdoorsy experience. 🏜
