Camp Sarika By AMANGIRI Opens in April 2020

Amangiri has drawn travellers to Utah’s starkly beautiful landscape of deep canyons and vermillion rock formations for a decade. To herald its special anniversary, the resort will soon welcome guests to Camp Sarika by Amangiri – 10 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 perfectly reflect the Amangiri experience, offering its own main pavilion and restaurant, two spa suites, one main swimming pool and a Jacuzziset 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 camp will enable a back-to-nature, wilderness experience for guests who will enjoy the utmost comfort alongside mesmerising, otherworldly landscapes and intriguing remnants of Native American culture at every turn.
The camp’s 10 beautifully appointed tented pavilions will be complemented by a Selldorf Architects-designed common pavilion, housing restaurant and lounge areas, as well as two spa suites, a swimming pool and a Jacuzzi. Claiming unobstructed views of the mesas or facing west to catch the sunset every evening, 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.
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).
A scenic 5-minute drive from Camp Sarika, Amangiri is tucked into a protected valley with sweeping views towards Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Built around a magnificent swimming pool that embraces a dramatic stone escarpment, the resort’s Main Pavilion houses the Dining Room, the Living Room, a library, gallery, private dining room and cellar. Beyond lies the Desert Lounge, an
open-air living room ideal for sundowners or star gazing. Two accommodation wings lead from the pavilion into the desert, housing 34 suites in total – many with private swimming pools and roof terraces.
A destination unto itself, the Aman Spa at Amangiri covers 2,322 square metres and provides a serene setting for relaxation and rejuvenation. Key features are the Water Pavilion, which offers hydrotherapy treatments; the Floatation Pavilion; the Watsu Pool; five walnut-lined treatment rooms and two outdoor treatment terraces with panoramic desert views. There is also a finishing salon, a yoga pavilion and a comprehensive gym.
Opened in 2009, Amangiri has won multiple awards for its remarkable design, intuitive service and luxurious proximity to nature. Camp Sarika will add a new dimension to this extraordinary all season destination, providing another setting in which to embrace the pristine and astonishing beauty of the American Southwest.
