Celebrations & events at Amangiri

Host the perfect event

The celebratory act of dancing has been a fundamental part of weddings and events since antiquity – a social pastime that spans generations, cultures and locations. Across the desert plains of Utah, Native American Hoop Dancing is one of the most famed expressions of this tradition, with the hoop serving as a symbol of the never-ending circle of life. At Amangiri, an ode to Navajo culture can be felt throughout the resort, where, overlooking the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, guests can bring a touch of Navajo heritage to any special occasion. 

Ideal for groups seeking complete seclusion, there is also the opportunity to celebrate on an exclusive basis. The resort can host up to 110 guests in utmost privacy, while for more intimate occasions, Camp Sarika can accommodate up to 30.

Weddings 

Home for centuries to the native Navajo, the starkly beautiful landscape that serves as Amangiri’s backdrop has a scale and majesty that imbues weddings with a momentous sense of significance. Say your vows atop a mesa with the world spread at your feet then come back to earth via helicopter to celebrate beneath star-lit skies. Navajo rituals can be further incorporated into ceremonies and receptions, from the purifying act of smudging to private dining in historic locations across the Colorado Plateau. 

The iconic design of the resort itself also acts as a contemporary canvas for bringing one’s dream wedding to life, where effortless architecture seamlessly connects guests to Mother Nature and her dramatic surroundings. Whether hosting a small wedding.

Celebrations 

Whether a special anniversary, milestone birthday or family reunion, Amangiri’s appeal for private celebrations is not just the beauty and privacy of its setting, its seamless service, and its superb cuisine. The resort also serves as a springboard for exploration of the area, with private hiking trails, canyoneering, Via Ferrata routes, boating, hot air ballooning, horseback riding and many other activities that can be tailored to accommodate larger groups of guests. Fireside storytelling and stargazing enable a deeper immersion in Native American culture, while expert archaeologists and paleontologists can share the region’s history, catering to guests of all ages for a truly unforgettable group experience.
