Surrounded by one of the USA’s most dramatic landscapes with canyons and towering plateaus as far as the eye can see, Amangiri is fairly unassuming from the outside and lets the land do the talking.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

On the inside however it's a different story, it's modern and in true Aman style, ultra luxurious. The 34 suites are all accessed via a private courtyard and into the outdoor sitting area. Glass doors lead into the bedroom, sitting room and then bathroom - the best part of which is the fantastic view from the bath. Some of the suites have private swimming pools, and all have spectacular views.

Amangiri is built around the Pavilion restaurant, which offers a range of food but mainly Southwest staples such as bison burgers and tortilla chips. Fairly informal, tables spill out onto terrace and swimming pool, and inside the chef shows off his techniques at a show table. For those who do prefer to eat in private, there is a small dining room (that leads into a wine cellar), or room service is available all day long.

The swimming pool is some mean feat. Built around a rocky escarpment, it also blends into the landscape. Other facilities include a spa which is accessed through a slot in the canyons. It has five treatment rooms, a water pavilion, watsu pool with views of adjacent rock formations, beauty salon, fitness centre and pilates studio.

Out and about there are endless activities on offer, from treks and guided hikes, to hot air balloon rides and riding. Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell are both close by, for great fly-fishing and spectacular scenery. Also learn the basic survival techniques (panic not, this is not preparation for staying at Amangiri, just a bit of fun) such as map reading, how to tie a rope and learn all about desert travel.
