A couple of months ago I flew into Las Vegas and drove like the wind to get to one of the most beautiful places on the planet…. AMANGIRI. Unfortunately the drive there was at night…. but even so…. with the moon light guiding the way, I could tell I was about to land someplace magical…. and someplace like I have never ever seen before. Upon arrival 4 hours later…. I was greeted by the entire night staff of the resort… with hot drinks and lots of welcome hugs and love. Even at night, Amangiri felt magical. It was so still and there were so many stars in the sky that I was sure we were on another planet. Even just walking into the main entry was an experience. Built into the sides of canyons with the largest rock I have ever seen taking center stage in the middle of the pool. They held the kitchen open…. knowing I would be hungry after the long drive there.
The menu was a unique and special as the Amangiri itself. Starting with the deep fried quail (which I thought could be one of the best things we have ever tasted) to the Navaho fry bread…. there was not a bad dish at the resort. After eating I made made my way to the room by passing the pool which centers the entire resort. Lit by candle light it was one of the most romantic sites that I have ever witnessed. Every room is identical and gorgeous… with a sitting area and bed that over looked the desert and hills. Upon waking the next day we explored the resort which is many miles of caves, climbing rocks and some of the most beautiful desert landscape in the world. Steve and I hiked all day ending up at the slot canyon that resides on the property. Stunning? An understatement. We have never witnessed such beauty and such serene beauty.
Amangiri could just be one on the most beautiful resorts on this planet….. and one that has stolen my heart forever.
Lots of Love,
