Top Ten Luxury
Amangiri, Lake Powell, Utah

If you are looking for the ultimate in Desert chic, this is it. The legendary Aman hotel group has opened its latest resort in the southwest region of the US, known as the Four Corners because it is where the states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona meet. In the crisp desert air, you'll find some of the most dramatic landscapes in the USA - a moonscape of deep canyons, weathered rocks and towering plateaus that have changed little since the heyday of the local native Navajo and Hopi tribes. The name Amangiri means 'peaceful mountain' and in this rugged, sparsely populated landscape, it is easy to feel at peace with the natural world. The resort has been designed to blend in with the surroundings and its square, strong buildings, look as if the have been hewn out of the rock itself. Inside you will find rawhide, natural timbers and blackened steel. The clean lines mean that all eyes are on the desert views framed in the large square windows.

The Luxury Travel Bible loves the Girijaala Suite with its rock-perched pool.

You can channel your inner Butch Cassidy and go on an equestrian adventure or hop a helicopter to the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion National Parks, Rainbow Bridge, Grand Staircase or Monument Valley.
