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.
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.
one-bedroom tented pavilions will each cover 175 square metres,
while the five two-bedroom tented pavilions will cover 262 square
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
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.
