Amangroupies take note: The newest in the ultra chic and haute, haute, haute chain of boutique resorts has opened in Utah, just north of Page, Ariz. Like its sibilings in the Amanresorts chain, the Amangiri, Sanskrit for peaceful mountain, is tricked out with facilities that put most high-end resorts to shame.

For starters, there's the 25,000-foot spa with indoor and outdoor treatment rooms, an expansive yoga studio plated with gold, a watsu pool, and a water pavilion with step pool, cold plunge pool, sauna, and steam room.

The main pavilion has an expansive living space with private seating areas (indoors and out) and lounges, dining areas, wine room, library, and open kitchen. On one side, views take in the expansive canyon lands; on the other, the rock-framed pool.

The ultra-private suites have a wall of doors that open to the outside world, and some have private pools and rooftop terraces for star gazing.

The resort is situated on 600 private, gated acres with easy access--and guided adventures--to Lake Powell, Zion National Park, Grand Staircase/Escalante, the Vermillion Cliffs, and Monument Valley.

Oh, and if you have to ask...opening rates begin at $600, room only.
