The Amangiri Resort

This austere resort sits on 600 acres on Utah’s southern border, sandwiched between Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument and Grand Canyon National Park. The place blends so seamlessly into the Colorado plateau that one could almost consider a stay here “extreme glamping.” That is, if glamping came with a 25,000 square-foot spa, a pool sculpted around a red-rock monolith, and a bedroom suite with twin rain showers. Amangiri may be the epitome of desert chic, but there are still plenty of ways to get sweaty, with extensive courses in GPS navigation, rock-climbing rope technique, desert travel, and hiking on nearby trails like “Studhorse.” To expand your consciousness, there’s the Desert Dream, a 135-minute treatment that combines flotation therapy with cranial-sacral and aromatherapy massage.

Suites from $1,050 per night.
