Our experience of time is transformed when we step outside our everyday lives and into the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Urban settings are alive with energy, whereas nature slows the pace, encouraging us to focus on the moment and appreciate the timeless majesty of mountain and ocean, jungle and plain. Aman’s destinations in the Americas are designed to be direct and sincere response to their natural surroundings – from the stark, otherworldly spectacle of the Utah desert and the aquamarine splendour of the Caribbean Sea to the ambition and dynamism of Manhattan.
In easy reach of five national parks and numerous national monuments, Camp Sarika by Amangiri offers a unique back-to-nature experience, surrounded by 600 acres of raw wilderness in the heart of the Utah desert. A short hike or drive from Amangiri, the camp’s cluster of 10 canvas-topped pavilions, each with a private plunge pool, centres on a shared lounge, restaurant and pool area – an enclave of meditative seclusion in one of the most geologically dramatic places on Earth.
