Amangiri, Canyon Point, Utah
Set in a protected valley among the canyons, flat-topped mesas, and desert landscapes of the Grand Circle. The 34 accommodations range from 1,150 square foot mesa or desert view suites to larger options with private pools. All include private outdoor space terraces or courtyards, fireplaces, and heated floors for cooler desert nights. The local landscape also shines through in the cuisine, which includes Southwestern inspired dishes. The 34 rooms at Amangiri are a contemporary interpretation of Native American shelters. Beds face panoramic windows with mind-blowing views; terraces have outdoor fireplaces. The concierge is king, organizing dinosaur digs and canyon trips so you don’t miss anything.
