Amangiri

Well, it is Wednesday, and as promised I'm sharing with you the most amazing place I've ever been to - Amangiri {which means peaceful mountain}!  While on our road trip we stayed at 4 different places, but nothing compared to this place {in fact nowhere I've ever stayed has compared to this place}...

This is a shot looking into our room from outside of the patio.  Adam went out there in flip flops to take this shot, and got covered in prickly cactus things - It is the desert after all.  I love how the doors open all the way, and what's even better is that it was warm enough to do so!

Here is a closer shot of the room.  It was beautiful - So sleek, modern and ultra cool.  Oh, and the bed was perfection, we're actually purchasing the mattress pad and feather topper to try and recreate the luxurious sleep environment at home.  {If you're looking for an unbelievably comfortable bed, let me know and I can send you the details}   
  
We spent the evening watching the sunset from our patio - The colours were breathtaking!

The grounds did not disappoint, they were equally as sleek and cool as the room was!  They specifically designed it to not compete with it's surroundings, and it certainly was very calming and zen like.  

Amangiri is a small boutique resort with only 35 rooms, but is located on over 600 acres!  It was actually pretty funny because as we were driving in I asked Adam if we were lost, there was literally nothing around and no sign of a resort anywhere.  It is so very remote, you really do get absolute peace and quiet, and it's remote location is perfect for celebs - Our waiter mentioned we just missed Brad and Angelina!



We spent most of our time hanging by the pool and reading during the day.  And I've never seen a pool area as stunning as this one!  I love how they built it around the rock.

And it looked even more amazing at night while we had dinner!  Don't you think?  

Sigh.  I still wish I was there.  The good news is I have a lotto ticket in my wallet, and I'm feelin' lucky!  

Thanks for letting me share my little vacay with you!  If you'd like to see more of my trip photos you can do so HERE, and if you'd like to find out more about Amangiri you can do so HERE.  I'd highly recommend if you are heading out to the Utah area to visit Amangiri, not only was it beautiful, relaxing, and oh so cool - The staff, service, and food was incredible.  I can't wait to go back!
