LAS VEGAS-Amangiri- Canyon Point

The Grand Canyon is a massive gorge located in the state of Arizona in the United States, and was created by the Colorado River. Although not the steepest nor the longest canyon in the world, the Grand Canyon is recognized as a natural wonder because of the overall scale and size combined with the beautifully colored landscape. The canyon offers a variety of lookouts and experiences that provide visitors with a view that cannot be matched.

Amangiri is located in Southern Utah and the closest airport is in Page, Arizona, a 25-minute drive from the resort. Amangiri provides complimentary transfers between the resort and Page Airport.

Amangiri, ‘peaceful mountain’, is situated on 243 hectares (600 acres) in Canyon Point, Southern Utah, close to the border with Arizona. The resort is tucked into a protected valley with sweeping views over colourful, stratified rock towards the Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument. The resort is a 25-minute drive from the nearest town of Page, Arizona and a 15-minute drive to the shores of Lake Powell. Architecturally, the resort has been designed to blend into the landscape with natural hues, materials and textures a feature of the design. The structures are commanding and in proportion with the scale of the natural surroundings, yet provide an intimate setting from which to view and appreciate the landscape.

Arrival to the resort is via a winding road that descends into the valley and leads to the central Pavilion. Built around the main swimming pool, the Pavilion embraces a dramatic stone escarpment. Within the Pavilion are the Living Room, Gallery, Library, Dining Room, Private Dining Room and Cellar. Two accommodation wings lead from the Pavilion into the desert: 16 suites are located within the Desert Wing and another 18 suites together with the Aman Spa are located within the Mesa Wing. Outward views from the resort look over the untouched valley surrounded by lofty bluffs.

Some Unique tours during your stay:

Home for centuries to the native Navajo and Hopi tribes, guests can explore the region with expert archaeologists, geologists and naturalists on guided hikes or horseback rides. To experience the pristine desert tundra on horseback, wandering through sweeping landscapes, towering sandstone peaks and along slot canyons, is an iconic American southwest adventure. Horseriding tours within Amangiri’s extensive trail system are available to suit all experience levels and abilities. A variety of two-hour trail routes offer multiple days of riding opportunities, with longer tours also available.

Boating day trips on Lake Powell allow guests to swim, kayak and fish the turquoise waters of this immense lake.

You can also enjoy Colorado river tour : Directly downstream of Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam, before the mighty Colorado River plunges on its 402 kilometre (250-mile) journey through the Grand Canyon National Park, a peaceful 24-kilometre (15-mile) stretch of river affords the chance to float between 305-metre (1,000 foot) high walls of Navajo Sandstone. Daily half-day excursions begin with private transportation from Amangiri to the base of the Glen Canyon Dam, followed by a privately-guided boat trip.

A leisurely stop on one of the river’s beautiful sandy beaches allows guests to enjoy a picnic lunch beneath the towering cliffs. Guests alight from the raft at historic Lees Ferry, which marks the beginning of the river’s course into Grand Canyon National Park, and will be transported back to the resort by vehicle.

The Aman Spa at Amangiri is a 2,322-square meter destination unto itself, providing a serene destination for relaxation and renewal. The Yoga Pavilion features bamboo floors and opens onto a canyon wall, while other facilities include: the Water Pavilion with steam rooms, sauna and hydrotherapy pools; the Fitness Center; five candlelit treatment rooms; two outdoor treatment terraces; and the Salon for manicures and pedicures. Outdoor activities under crisp blue skies in the resort’s breathtaking surrounds include horse riding, via ferrata climbing routes, hiking and mountain biking – all ideal complements to the daily yoga sessions.
