Amangiri Resort Defies The Unwelcoming Desert

Building in the desert is a real challenge. And not just because of the unwelcoming climate, but because it’s pretty hard to integrate something made by man in such a raw landscape. Yet, the challenge has been accepted by Rick Joy, Wendell Burnette and Marwan Al-Sayed and so the Amangiri resort has risen in its ravishing splendor.

We have unfolded before our eyes something I like to call a modern touch in a bare land (that’s actually in Canyon Point, Utah) and it integrates perfect in the earthy and sandy picture. 34 suits are ready to welcome their guests, adding to these some more other shared spaces, like a library or an art gallery.

And because this is desert, cooling facilities in the hot day, with lots of swimming pools that help coping with the killing degrees in thermometers and outdoor fireplaces or hot tubs to warm up the cold night make the contrast of temperature feel less disturbing.
