Amangiri Rack brochure 2010 - Miguel Guedes de Sousa
Amangiri, ‘peaceful mountain’, is located in Utah in the southwest
United States. The region is also known as the Four Corners where the
states of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado meet. Situated on
243 hectares (600 acres), the resort is tucked into a protected valley with
sweeping views of the area’s dramatic landscape. Designed to complement
its surroundings, Amangiri features natural hues and materials, providing
a spacious, yet intimate setting from which to experience this starkly
beautiful region year round.
The resort is built around the main swimming
pool which embraces a natural rock escarpment.
The pool’s lounging terrace features king-sized
daybeds, some of which appear to float on the
water, and pairs of sun-loungers.
An outdoor hot tub sits adjacent to the Campfire
Pavilion, warmed by a fire during winter.
At the centre of the
resort is the Pavilion,
with dramatic views of
rock formations and the
swimming pool to one
