Honeymoon Hotspot – Amangiri
As you approach Amangiri it’s easy to be so enamoured by the sweeping desert canyons that you miss it emerge from the landscape, but that’s all part of the architect’s master plan. The style is more than just modern, it’s mesa-inspired. The geometric planes that make up this luxury property mimic the flat top of the tableland, each subtly tinted in shades of ochre, pink and yellow to compliment the colours of the rock formations surrounding it. In an architectural feat, Amangiri manages to simultaneously be exemplary in its bold design while still remaining humble to the rugged geographical grandeur of the area.
While the exterior may be humble, once you’re inside you will instantly be encased into a world of opulent luxury. Amangiri translates to mean “Peaceful Mountain” and they have gone above and beyond to ensure that the experience lives up to its name. From a Navajo-inspired spa to the outdoor living space complete with a fireplace for each room, every aspect of the property has been designed to offer guests the ultimate in carefree relaxation all while taking in the panoramic views.
For those who are a seeking a little bit more adrenaline and adventure, the lofty canyons that fringe this property are yours to explore. Horseback riding, hiking, rock climbing and hot air balloon rides are just a few of the many options for you to consider. And while it may look desert and rock as far the eye can see, the nearby Lake Powell offers more than 3,200 km of shoreline to be discovered by kayak.
It’s hard to put into words what exactly it is that makes this property so special. It is strikingly beautiful, as you can see in the photos, but it’s more than that. It’s the deep sense of tranquility and connection that you feel when you’re able to experience it in person, which is why it’s such an optimal destination for your honeymoon. This is a one-in-a-million destination for an once-in-a-lifetime trip, and we know that you’ll be just as besotted as we are!
