Aman‘s Amangiri has drawn travellers to Utah’s starkly beautiful landscape of deep canyons and vermillion rock formations for a decade. To celebrate its 10 year anniversary, the resort has revealed its Camp Sarika experience will open in April 2020.
Camp Sarika will be set on more than 55 hectares overlooking iconic flat-topped mesa rock formations. The 10 tented pavilions are complemented by a common pavilion and restaurant, two spa suites, a swimming pool and a Jacuzzi. A 30-minute hike or five-minute drive from Amangiri, the camp is the perfect escape for guests looking for solitude, privacy and reflection.
Claiming unobstructed views of the mesas, or facing west to catch the sunset every evening, the tented pavilions will feature either one or two bedrooms, as well as a living area, dining area, a bar, a spacious private terrace with a fire pit and an individual heated plunge pool. Designed by Luxury Frontiers, the tented pavilions will mimic the spaciousness and clean lines of the suites at Amangiri, where natural materials reflect the light-transforming surface of the desert outside.
Open throughout the day, the restaurant at the camp will be situated in the main pavilion, with both indoor and outdoor seating offering stunning views. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the restaurant will offer a menu that will change daily, incorporating the freshest local produce, while also catering to vegetarians and vegans. Paying homage to the wilderness setting, the open kitchen will feature a rotisserie grill, with dishes served on cedar and slate carving boards.
The camp provides the perfect space for guests to connect with nature with every convenience and luxury at hand. Two spa suites will offer an extensive menu of spa therapies inspired by traditional Navajo wellness practices, while yoga and guided meditation will be offered alfresco, allowing guests to reground themselves within the natural beauty of the Utah desert.
Serving as an idyllic escape and a springboard for exploration of the area, the camp will offer desert and mountain hiking with its own trail system, morning and afternoon wellness experiences indoors and out, canyoneering, its own Via Ferrata route and horseback riding, as well as many other adventure activities. The camp will also enable a deeper immersion in Native American culture, with storytelling and stargazing around the fire every evening.
Since its launch in 2009, Amangiri has won multiple awards for its design, service and proximity to nature. Camp Sarika will add a new dimension to this all-season destination, providing another setting in which to embrace the beauty of the American Southwest.
