Amangiri Aman Resort, Utah, USA
Over in Utah is the protected valley of Canyon Point, which isn't where you'd normally expect to find a luxurious resort. But Aman's Amangiri is perfect for those seeking a high-end and very private escape.
Overlooking rock formations and the arid desert, the resort's interiors are equally as stunning, with a focus on ochre, yellow and pink to complement the natural surroundings it sits within.
If you can pry yourself away from the comforts of the resort, the iconic attractions of the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Lake Powell are all within exploring distance, or book into one of the resort's activities such as hot air ballooning, helicopter rides, and horse-riding excursions.
