Design Meets Dinosaur Land: Utah’s AmangiriAuthor:Stephanie Orma
Who says you need a museum, art gallery–or even civilization–to experience an out-of-this-world design getaway?
Just a hop, skip, and two short flights from SF, arriving at the remote Southern Utah digs of Amangiri Resort feels like you’ve landed on planet Mars or some ancient expanse where dinosaurs used to roam. (And crazy enough, it actually is the extinct critters’ old stomping grounds with 160-million-year-old footprints and fossils unearthed in the region).
But while the dramatic rock formations and stark desert landscape look frozen in time, the hideaway’s modern, minimalist architecture and seamless indoor/outdoor design is anything but dated.
From its sandstone exterior to vista- and light- framing outdoor desert lounges to earth tone interiors and window-walled rooms with uninterrupted views, everything about Amangiri feels like a natural extension of its 600-acre wilderness surroundings.
Even the swimming pool wraps around a 165-million-year-old rock.
Spend your days exploring the eye-popping canyons, towering plateus, nearby Lake Powell, or road-tripping it to Bryce, Zion, or the Grand Canyon. Then bliss out in Aman Spa with killer views, outdoor saunas, and serene fireside nooks.
And keep a look out for unique species – both wild animals and movie-star celebs have been spotted at this luxe Canyon Point getaway.
