|PROGRAM||34 Guestrooom Luxury Resort with 12,000 SF Spa|
Located in the canyon lands of southern Utah, this ultra-luxurious resort is set among the layered landscape at the north of Lake Powell. Overlooking starkly beautiful desert scenery and the Southwest’s iconic flat-topped mesa rock formations, Amangiri (‘peaceful mountain’) is located in the USA’s Grand Circle region. Five national parks, numerous national monuments, and the Navajo Nation Reservation, the largest Native American reservation in the United States, surround the resort.
The resort’s abstracted ruin forms are realized in cast concrete, steel, and glass. The heart of the resort is the large swimming pool which is engaged into the site’s natural rock formation. Amenities include multiple options for dining, a yoga studio, a gallery, fitness center, pilates studio, library, and a living room.
