Exploring the American Southwest: A Stay at the Amangiri in Canyon Point, Utah

The stunning entrance to the Amangiri

The sublimely designed Amangiri Resort in Canyon Point Utah is one of the most stunning resorts I’ve ever visited, and it’s here in the American Southwest. The resort’s minimalist design effortlessly showcases the amazing landscape of southern Utah. You feel the five star service that Aman Resorts are known for the second you pull up to the resort and are welcomed by the staff, and make your way into the reception area.

Looking up in Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon is the most famous (and most photographed) slot canyon in the American Southwest. And there is good reason why. It’s virtually impossible to take a bad picture in this amazingly beautiful area. February is a great time to visit the amazing slot canyons located along the Utah-Arizona border. The mild winter meant the weather was pleasant. As an added bonus, while Antelope Canyon is always popular, it’s significantly less busy during winter months.

A view of the Aman Resort Sveti Stefan and the Budva Coast

Montenegro has only been an independent country since 2006. This emerging Balkan destination seems like an unlikely location for an upscale Aman resort, but after spending a few days at the Aman Sveti Stefan, I totally get it. The vibe is chic European Bond villain lair, with the former island resort now connected to the mainland by a narrow narrow isthmus, with an active security detail making sure only guests get to the resort.

The culinary travel trend remains strong and the Amanbagh  is ready to give foodie-centric guests a satisfying experience. During my visit to Rajasthan last month, Amanbagh chef B.G. took me on tour of the property’s on site organic garden and then-still-under-construction outdoor kitchen which will be used for classes and cooking workshops.
