The Amangiri Resort is located in the desert of southern Utah, not far from the border with Arizona, in a sheltered valley near Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.
The architectural project born out of a partnership between architects Marwan Al Sayed, Wendell Burnette and Rick Joy fits harmoniously into this landscape of primordial power because it is built out of natural materials of local origin.
The many facilities in the hotel complex include a spa with a swimming pool, a fitness centre and a yoga pavilion.
After winning the Best Resort in North America award for two years running, the resort has now also been included in the 2014 Gold List of “Best Places to Stay”.
