TAGS: SLOT CANYON, VIA FERRATA, INFINITY POOL
It's as indulgent as every resort in the über-luxe Aman chain, but the 18-month-old Amangiri property makes this list because of its setting: plopped in the middle of 600 acres of southern Utah canyonlands, between the Grand Canyon and Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument. Besides, how many resorts have their own via ferrata? Amangiri has three separate fixed-hardware routes up sheer 500-foot-tall sandstone walls surrounding the property. Nothing's small here: the sweeping vistas from the 34 suites (made of poured concrete to mimic the landscape), the 25,000-square-foot spa, the infinity pool, the neighboring slot canyon (Buckskin Gulch, one of the world's longest), or the prices. From $950 per night; amanresorts.com
