Camp Sarika by Amangiri

At one with wilderness

A short hike or drive from Amangiri, amid an unearthly 600-acre landscape of towering mesas, slot canyons and rust-coloured sands, the tented retreat of Camp Sarika promises an intimate, back-to-the-wild experience in the desert heart of Utah. 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.

A short drive from Amangiri, Camp Sarika seems truly set apart from the rest of the world, a place where the sense of connection to nature is much stronger than the ties to modern city life. Experience a new frontier, an atmosphere characterised by community and peace, with yoga and meditation sessions held outside in an environment of soul-stirring natural beauty.

With three national parks and the Navajo Nation Reservation in its immediate proximity Camp Sarika is a unique entry point into the wilds of the Old West, with guided desert and mountain hikes on its own trail system, a programme of slot canyon expeditions and a bespoke Sarika via ferrata route. At night, the campfire blazes into life, and residents gather for storytelling sessions beneath the vast star-shimmering sky.

WELLNESS

A world of one’s own

With a restaurant, main pool, lounge and a pair of spa suites at its heart, Camp Sarika is a self-contained retreat unto itself. Surrounded by canyons and mesas, the wilderness encampment combines the simplicity and solitude of the desert with the thrill of exploration and adventure – as well as all the facilities, amenities and activities on offer at Amangiri.

DINING

Fireside dining

Located in the main pavilion, the Restaurant serves a daily changing menu of wilderness-inspired cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner from its open kitchen, as well as snacks and afternoon tea. Fresh Utah-sourced produce and locally raised meats are used to create rustic-but-refined rotisserie and fire-pit dishes, as well as an extensive array of vegetarian and vegan options. Camp guests are also free to take advantage of the dining options of Amangiri whenever they wish.
