2: Amangiri, Canyon Point, Utah
An Indian name, Amangiri means peaceful mountain. Located in Canyon Point, Southern Utah almost on the Arizona border, the sprawling 600-acre luxury resort is 15 minutes’ drive from Lake Powell and 25-minutes’ drive from Page, the nearest town in Arizona.
The resort is fringed by the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Grand Staircase - Escalante, and Bryce and Zion National Parks. The 34-room luxury hotel, built with sleek sandstone, commands spectacular views of the stratified colourful rock towards the Grand Staircase- Escalante National Monument.
The Canyon Point, located amidst one of the most dramatic landscapes in the USA, hosts deep canyons, tall plateaus, international class hiking facilities and, of course, Amangiri.
You can enjoy the sight of the “weeping wall” built by the desert-mineral-infused concrete. The beauty of the wall is that the water dripping down it generates colours from the surface and creates an amazing art form.
The resort is an ode to harmony and relaxation as it provides an extensive treatment menu based on the ancient healing traditions. It houses a sprawling water pavilion with a swimming pool, steam room, dry sauna and cold plunge pool, fully equipped fitness centre, yoga pavilion, salon and floatation room.
