Aman launches Camp Sarika at Amangiri in Utah where luxury camps meet raw wilderness
November 12, 2019: A serene resort encircled by the raw wilderness of the Utah desert, Amangiri has drawn travellers to Utah’s starkly beautiful landscape of deep canyons and vermillion rock formations for a decade. To herald its 10th 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 offer its own main pavilion and restaurant, two spa suites, one main swimming pool and a Jacuzziset in unparalleled proximity to nature. 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.
Camp Sarika aims to encourage a private and peaceful connection to its dramatic surroundings. The camp includes five one-bedroom tented pavilions and five two-bedroom tented pavilions. Designed by luxury travel company Luxury Frontiers, the tented pavilions will mimic the spaciousness and clean lines of Amangiri, where natural materials reflect the light-transforming, undulating surface of the desert outside.
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. Two spa suites will offer an extensive menu of spa therapies inspired by traditional Navajo wellness practices, while yoga and guided meditation will be offered al fresco, allowing guests to reground themselves within the astounding natural beauty of the Utah desert.
The camp will also enable a deeper immersion in Native American culture, with storytelling and star gazing around the fire every evening. The intimacy exclusive to Camp Sarika, with inspired facilities and unbounded access to Utah’s vast expanses of magical scenery at its doorstep, makes the camp the ideal destination for larger groups or families desiring a private insight into the destination or a very special place for an important celebration.
A salon, a yoga pavilion and a comprehensive gym finish Camp Sarika, which will surely add a new dimension to the extraordinary all-season destination of Utah, providing another setting in which to embrace the pristine and astonishing beauty of the American Southwest.
