Welcome to Amangiri!

Amangiri is a remote hideaway, luxuriously appointed and architecturally pure, tucked into the canyons of the American Southwest. Located in a protected valley with wide and slightly surreal views, this resort offers high design, adrenaline-fueled adventure and a naturally peaceful retreat; what more could you want for a romantic getaway?

Step inside the thick adobe walls for a tour…

Amangiri is within easy reach of some of America’s most magnificent protected areas, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Monument Valley. The resort’s 600 acres  reveal a stark natural beauty as well as a rich cultural heritage.

The hotel fits into its landscape perfectly, almost like a natural outcropping of rocks in the open valley. The structure was designed by architects Marwan Al-Sayed, Wendell Burnette and Rick Joy of Wendell Burnett Architects.

Nothing will disturb your sleep in this majestic moonscape…

Aman’s in-house design team completed the interiors. The colors of the resort, both inside and out, are taken from nature.

The interiors are luxurious and minimal, never distracting from the real star — the landscape.

Views of the desert become art, through huge, retractable glass doors that also let in the pure desert air.

Amangiri provides cultural experiences inside, as well. On Valentine’s Day, for instance. The Carpenter siblings, violinists Sean and Lauren and world-leading solo violist David Carpentera, have been profiled in The New Yorker and The New York Times and are the subject of a forthcoming documentary by Academy Award-winning director Scott Hicks.

With a stay of two nights or more on Valentine’s, Amangiri offers complimentary dining, two violin concerts performed by the Carpenter siblings, stargazing with an astronomer, daily guided group hikes and return transfers to and from Page Airport.
