The ultimate in desert deluxe
Amangiri is an oasis of five-star style in the rugged Four Corners region
restaurant prices but Foster’s playful pairings of unusual produce such as wild boar bacon, smoky bison tartare, Utah elk, and delicious desserts make for an intriguing and inspired dining experience, especially his after-dinner campfire roasting of S’mores (marshmallow, chocolate and crackers).
Amangiri’s all- suite approach means there are no bad rooms, only better ones. All 34 guest suites in the two accommodation wings have uninterrupted desert views and essentially the same sleek and somewhat minimalist interior design. The ensuite bathroom extends the length of each suite, with twin vanities, a rain shower and soaking tub with desert views.
Each accommodation wing has an indoor-outdoor signature suite but my picks are the two envy-inducing Desert Wing Pool Suites (7 and 10) and Mesa Wing counterparts (24 and 25) due to their private plunge pools and fabulous rooftop sky terraces.
