Does the hustle and bustle of the new year have you already thinking about your next escape? We thought so.  Here’s an idea for you and your special someone. Amidst the starkly beautiful and untouched desert in southern Utah lies Amangiri, a tranquil sanctuary overlooking 900 acres of the Colorado Plateau, renowned for its serene setting and ideal for relaxation and rejuvenation. You’ll likely be among the many celebs who seek this as a chic retreat.

Celebrating Amangiri’s 15th anniversary this year, the resort is debuting new holistic and integrative wellness experiences drawn on the natural elements of earth, wind, fire, and water, offering the chance to renew body, mind, and soul. Who doesn’t need more of that?

The Aman Spa at Amangiri also serves as a destination in its own right. A few highlights that we learned of what’s new include:

  • Yoga on the Rocks – A short hike to the top of a rock formation in the desert leads to a one-of-a-kind yoga experience with breathtaking 360º views of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
  • Thermal Therapy – Sessions led by Amangiri’s expert practitioners incorporate therapeutic use of the sauna, steam room, and cold plunge to aid physical recovery and promote mental clarity.
  • Dark Exposure Sessions – Intended to be a solo experience, guests enter a light-proofed space in the Floatation Pavilion to begin meditating, with a focus on affirmation and breathwork, supporting connection to self and acceptance of mind. 
  • Desert Wellness Escape – Provides the opportunity to design a bespoke three-night all-inclusive wellness retreat tailored to individual wellbeing goals (includes two 60-minute movement or mindfulness sessions and three 60-minute personalized spa treatments of the guest’s choice).

So, what are you waiting for? Start packing your athleisure wear now…
