Our favourite rooms
If you’re a sucker for sunset views, opt for a Mesa View Suite; if you want a pool of your own, try one of the two Terrace Pool Suites. For the full rock-star experience, the Girijaala Suite has an enormous sky lounge and swimming pool, and the Amangiri Suite has an even grander pool as well as a dining table.
The heated swimming pool curves around an escarpment of sandstone rock, with a line of king-size loungers on decks that jut into the water on one side, and terraces of parasols and sun loungers on the other side. There’s a piping Jacuzzi to soak in, too, and a fire pit to warm up at in the winter months.
A 2,322sq m ode to relaxation and harmony, the Aman Spa at Amangiri channels Navajo culture and healing traditions in its extensive treatment menu. In addition to five treatment rooms, it has a spacious water pavilion with a swimming pool, steam room, dry sauna and cold plunge pool; two outdoor treatment terraces; fully equipped fitness centre; yoga pavilion with private classes and free group sessions; salon and floatation room.
Binoculars and cameras, naturally. Walking shoes and 40+ sunscreen for hiking over dunes and up rocks; Jackie O sunglasses and kaftans for poolside lounging. If you need to pack light, there are sun hats for everyone to borrow, plus hiking shoes available to those who book a private guided tour.
Soft drinks are free.
Pets under 25lbs are welcome to stay in the Desert Wing at a rate of $100 per night. Be sure to sign the resort's pet policy waiver before arriving. See more pet-friendly hotels in Lake Powell.
This epic escape welcomes little explorers too; a kids’ menu is available in the Pavilion, as are children’s books and games. Say the word and a licensed babysitter can also be booked. The swimming pool has steps, shallow waters and toys on request.
