I grew up in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. So while visitors would proclaim the desert as enchanting and beautiful, I just frequently saw it as one giant mess of suburbs, asphalt and concrete. Granted, leaving town did provide a much different experience, but my frequent drives between Phoenix and Tucson left much to be desired. I think one night at the Amangiri Resort and Spa would most definitely change my tune.
Situated about 15 minutes from Lake Powell (which is magnificent in and of itself) in Southern Utah, the Amangiri Spa and Resort is located on a 600 acre expanse of wilderness that feels otherworldly. Surrounded by nothing but giant expanses of rock and sky, the resort itself is designed in natural hues and materials to blend into its landscape.
A stay at this resort would provide one with a true appreciation for the beauty of the desert. Surrounded by windswept rocks and quiet, I can only imagine how many stars one would see on any given night.
