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.
