Dropped into a cliff curve in the immensity of the Colorado Plateau, Amangiri is a zen retreat back-dropped by 180 million-year-old rock formations rich in dinosaur history. This is a place for gaining perspective in the midst of ancient splendor, and the minimalist Aman hotel concept – this time proffering an ochre-pink concrete geometry – merges perfectly with this indelibly wild west setting.
Insider tip: Arrange for a guided fossil tour through the gold and meteorite-flecked rocks. From $1,100; amanresorts.com
