Amangiri's stunning bunker-like buildings blend so perfectly into the surrounding sandstone mesas and stratified rock pillars, you'll be quickly convinced that soaking in a pool wrapped around a rock escarpment is how wilderness ought to be experienced. But after lounging on the rooftop of your duplex suite, hike a three-mile loop trail to explore a cave with ancient petroglyphs, or kayak up Lone Rock slot canyon on Lake Powell, a 20-minute drive away. If you want to explore the more beaten path in Bryce, Zion, or the Grand Canyon – all within a two-hour drive – take the resort's complimentary BMW 650i convertible [suites from $1,050; amanresorts.com].
