Amangiri makes a good case for trav­el­ling to the mid­dle of nowhere. A tran­quil sand­stone ham­let that sits among the rocky mesas of Amer­ica’s Grand Cir­cle re­gion, this bare-boned ha­cienda is de­signed so you’re never quite sure whether you’re out­side or in. And that’s a good thing. Each of Amangiri’s 34 suites strike the op­ti­mal bal­ance be­tween stripped­back and sybaritic, with pri­vate ter­races that reach to­ward the cav­ernous ex­panse out­side. Re­spect for the Navajo peo­ple, the orig­i­nal cus­to­di­ans of the land, can be felt in nu­anced ac­cents through­out the re­sort. Treat­ments in the spa, for ex­am­ple, have been de­signed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Navajo na­tives from the neigh­bour­ing Amer­i­can In­dian reser­va­tion. BEST BIT With the Colorado River on your doorstep, it’s built for those who love a hike. Also, hot­stone mas­sages. HOW MUCH? Suites start at $2000 a night, all but al­co­holic bev­er­ages in­clu­sive.
