Amangiri has drawn travellers to Utah’s starkly beautiful landscape of deep canyons and vermillion rock formations for a decade.
To celebrate this special anniversary, the resort will soon open Camp Sarika by Amangiri – ten tented-pavilions with individual private plunge pools on a luxury encampment surrounded by 600 hectares of raw wilderness in the heart of the desert, close to Amangiri.
Opening in April 2020, Camp Sarika will reflect the Amangiri experience, offering its own main pavilion and restaurant, two spa suites, one main swimming pool and a jacuzzi set in unparalleled proximity to nature.
Formed for escapism, adventure, solitude and privacy, the camp is located a 30-minute hike or five-minute drive from Amangiri, and while guests at the camp enjoy full access to the resort’s facilities whenever they desire, everything they need will be conveniently located at Camp Sarika.
Deriving its name from the Sanskrit word for “open space” and “sky”, Camp Sarika will be set on more than 55 hectares overlooking iconic flat-topped mesa rock formations.
Surrounded by five national parks, each offering unique and diverse scenery, numerous national monuments and the Navajo Nation Reservation, the tented pavilions will feature either one or two bedrooms, as well as a living area, dining area, a bar, a private spacious terrace with a fire pit and an individual heated plunge pool.
The five one-bedroom tented pavilions will each cover 175 square metres, while the five two-bedroom tented pavilions will cover 262 square metres.
Designed by Luxury Frontiers, the tented pavilions will mimic the spaciousness and clean lines of the suites at Amangiri, where natural materials reflect the light-transforming, undulating surface of the desert outside, but will evoke a luxury camp feel.
The interiors will include decorative canvas walls and ceilings and wooden fittings, as opposed to Amangiri’s furnishings, which comprise blackened steel and stone.
Open throughout the day, the restaurant at the camp will be situated in the main pavilion, with both indoor and outdoor seating offering breathtaking views. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with snacks and afternoon tea in between, the restaurant will offer a menu that will change daily, incorporating the freshest local produce, whilst also catering to vegetarians and vegans.
Paying homage to the wilderness setting, the open kitchen will feature a rotisserie grill, with dishes served on cedar and slate carving boards. Reserved for residents of the camp during the day, the restaurant will also be open to resort guests for dinner (with advance booking).
Serving as an idyllic escape and a springboard for exploration of the area, the camp will offer desert and mountain hiking with its own trail system, morning and afternoon wellness experiences indoors and out, canyoneering, its own via ferrata route and horseback riding, as well as many other adventure activities. The camp will also enable a deeper immersion in Native American culture, with storytelling and star gazing around the fire every evening.
