Amangiri’s New Tented Retreat


Set amid the epic desert landscape of southern Utah, Amangiri has been a resort favored by Hideaway Report members ever since it opened in 2009. The property will soon be augmented by Camp Sarika, a cluster of 10 spacious one- and two-bedroom tented pavilions, located a five-minute drive from the main lodge. Glamping has seldom been so luxurious. All the pavilions come with clean lines and a natural palette and provide indoor living and dining areas, terraces with fire pits and heated plunge pools. Although guests have access to all the facilities and activities at the original Amangiri, the camp itself is self-contained, with a central swimming pool, spa facilities and a restaurant serving a daily changing menu that emphasizes locally raised meat and Utah-sourced produce.

The retreat aims to provide an atmosphere of “meditative seclusion,” amid 600 acres of mesas, slot canyons and tracts of rust-colored sand. As well as guided hikes on the camp’s own network of trails, guests will have access to an exclusive via ferrata route, while five national parks and the Navajo Nation reservation are located nearby. Yoga and meditation sessions will be held outside, surrounded by the grandeur and solitude of the desert, and each evening, stargazing sessions will take advantage of the lack of light pollution and the clear desert skies. Camp Sarika is intended to provide a unique synthesis of simplicity and sophistication.
