Amangiri

    The second U.S. property from Singapore-based Amanresorts, Amangiri (435.675.3999, www.amanresorts.com) is a serene desert retreat that opened last October within a 600-acre private nature reserve near Utah’s Lake Powell. The resort’s 34 suites put the surrounding wilderness on constant display, with floor-to-ceiling windows and private courtyards that offer views of towering plateaus, pastel bluffs, and clay-colored buttes. Multihued vistas can also be enjoyed from the outdoor treatment terraces at Amangiri’s 25,000-square-foot spa, where decorative pools, trickling streams, and fire pits complement the quiet desert surrounds. Evening entertainment at the resort includes after-dinner drinks by a poolside fireplace, as well as showings of spaghetti westerns on a large outdoor screen. ($800–$3,150)
