THE LOWDOWN: Located near the Utah-Arizona border, Amangiri is set on a 600-acre expanse of wilderness that was home to Navajo and Hopi tribes for centuries. Small may be beautiful, but not in canyon country, where it’s all about big views: Gaze out on stunning 200-million-year-old mesas and rock formations. Expect the Aman’s singular combination of subdued luxury and sense of place with stellar service.
WHICH ROOM: There are 34 suites, but for something special book the Girijaala or Amangiri Suites, with private pools and secluded outdoor sky terraces.
WHAT TO DO: The resort is a luxe base for excursions to Lake Powell, Grand Canyon National Park, Monument Valley, and Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. After hiking or biking, relax at its 25,000-square-foot spa.
Rates: Start at $600.
