Utah is home to plenty of interesting ecosystems, but the state’s expansive wilderness is best known for its otherworldly geology. The Aman ‘Amangiri’ resort takes full advantage of this unique landscape, providing willing participants with a secluded, meditative escape from reality. But if you’re one for true immersion, the company’s premium experience begins when you reach ‘Camp Sarika.’
As an alternative to the primary area of Aman’s Amangiri escape, Camp Sarika boasts a more intimate experience for those who seek to remove themselves from the monotony of the main area’s daily activities. Located in an out-of-the-way plot on the company’s 600-acre property, denizens are treated to an exclusive enclave of canvas-topped pavilions. Each laid-back enclosure boasts its own private plunge pool and fire pit, while a centralized lounge, restaurant, and pool area provide ample opportunity for social interaction with the resort’s other guests. During the day, you’ll be able to partake in a variety of guided desert and mountain hikes, observational slot canyon expeditions, and storytelling sessions centering around the escape’s connection to nature, as well as its Old West influence. The two-bedroom pavilions at Camp Sarika are an amazing way to stir your soul in the desert of Utah, and for around $3,000 and up a night, you’ll be able to craft a memorable experience that you won’t soon forget.
