Aman Resorts are perfectly placed in select destinations. They are set into idyllic natural surroundings, built with spectacular architecture, and created to ensure guests the most authentic, tranquil vacation imaginable. Maybe even more than you imagined! The idea is quality over quantity, and there are only a select number of rooms per resort. The essence of exclusivity is the foundation of Aman Resorts. The word Aman is Sanskrit for “peace,” and their resorts are the absolute defining essence of it!

Amangiri, in Canyon Point, Utah is a spectacular resort nestled into a valley that gazes out onto the Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument. Highly awarded, it is very well known for being one of America’s top destinations for luxurious enjoyment of Utah’s southern desert climate. This resort was made for savoring the pleasure of the natural surroundings, as it was literally built into the landscape. While the structure holds a very commanding presence, it does not overwhelm and is in perfect harmony with the environment, maintaining a very intimate sophistication. The property’s main building is the central Pavilion, and it encompasses a stunning swimming pool on the exterior, which too, was built into the natural stone formations. This may be the resort’s most impressive element, as it’s views are utterly astounding. With a limited number of suites, each showcases the area’s incredible desert views. The Aman Spa at Amangiri is also no stranger to accolades, especially for such features as it’s floatation therapy pavilion, steam room, water pavilion with accompanying sauna, and the cold plunge with the step pool. The additional fitness centre and yoga pavilion also lend to the spirit of therapeutic wellness and serenity!

For nature enthusiasts looking for the finest way to savor all of Yellowstone National Park, you have to stay at the Amangani. Set into the historical landscape, the Yellow Stone resort sits atop a high mountain valley, East Gros Ventre Butte in Jackson Hole. Gazing out from the resort, you will find meadows, the Snake River Valley, and then the spectacular Tetons in the distance. This resort calls to mind the greatness of the American West, with a modern flair. As one of America’s premier destination resorts, Amangani has been awarded numerous times, making Conde Nast’s Gold List more than three times, received recognition in Conde Nast’s Gold List as “Best for Design – North America,” it has been named one of the “Top 30 Small Resorts in the US,” and placed among the “Top 20 United States Hideaways” on Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report in 2011. While the winter season is glorified by the excellent skiing, which Jackson Hole is famous for, throughout the year you can enjoy all of the incredible natural vistas the area holds.

How could you possibly enjoy the untamed, untainted beauty of the British Virgin Islands more than in perfect union with your surroundings? With a stay at Amanyara, on the gorgeous island of Turks and Caicos. This exclusive and exceptionally luxurious resort consists of private villas and pavilions set into the tropical landscape, surrounded by ponds and elegant gardens that have been cultivated within the natural rugged stone of the headlands. Beyond all of this lies the powdery, white sand and turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, where some of the best diving in the world can be found. The resort’s swimming pool features exquisite vistas of the ocean, from a sprawling terrace. Amanyara’s spa is also worth noting, as it offers stunning views of a reflection pond, and is surrounded by gorgeous vegetation. Morning outdoor yoga classes are complimentary, and are held every morning in the spa’s yoga sala. Contemporarily classic, refined and peaceful, this is the epitome of paradise.

Aman Resorts may not be widely known but that is definitely not their goal. Their aim is to create luxury in an intimate setting, where personal attention can be a maximum part of the service. This brand wants to be set apart from the crowd of five-star hoteliers, to offer something different, something more along the lines of exclusivity and tranquility, wherever in the world they are located.
