Travelers who may have felt called to the frontier by Amanresorts’ Western-themed Amangani in Jackson Hole, Wyo., can now follow the sun to Amangiri, a 34-suite resort that opened in October as the Singapore-based company’s second U.S. property. Set in southwest Utah—home to the Navajo and Hopi for centuries—Amangiri occupies a 600-acre stretch of desert surrounded by towering plateaus, red-rock escarpments, and pastel bluffs.

Countering the dry surroundings, Amangiri’s design abounds with water features. Decorative pools and streams trickle throughout the grounds, while some of the suites have plunge pools in private courtyards.

Amangiri’s 25,000-square-foot spa offers treatments in five candlelit rooms, as well as on two outdoor terraces and a pavilion that floats in a reflection pool. In the evening, therapists at the spa place the river stones used in massages outside to recharge their energy. Guests need only soak in the remoteness and beauty of the Southwest to recharge their souls. Amangiri, 435.675.3999, www.amanresorts.com
