Location - Canyon Point, Utah, USA
The Amangiri Resort and Spa, located on a spectacular 600+ acre site in southern Utah, is a unique collaboration between three well-established architects: Marwan Al-Sayed, Wendell Burnette and Rick Joy. The three architects were brought onto the project by Bernt Kuhlmann, one of the current owners of Amangiri, and then the managing partner in the development of the lands that now include Amangiri. The three architects were inspired to work together on an awe-inspiring site and for such a legendary hotelier, Adrian Zecha, whose Aman Resorts has redefined the concept of travel and luxury in remarkable sites. Working with Adrian Zecha and his team, the architects have created a bold yet responsive settlement that both honors and celebrates the magic and mystery of southern Utah’s majestic cliffs and rock formations.
