Amangiri Resort

While it’s well above my pay grade (nightly rates from $1,100 to $7,500), the Amangiri Resort in southern Utah looks absolutely stunning. Ensconced in the natural rock formations that face Escalante National Monument, the modernist architecture of this place obviously cost a mint. Amangiri has won a slew of awards, which has me imagining just how exquisite a stay here would be.

Of the swimming pool:

The swimming pool is set within a sunken courtyard framed by the Pavilion and rock escarpment. It wraps around the rock to finish with a hot tub that sits at the base of a rock wall. The lounging terrace that surrounds the pool features king-sized daybeds, some of which appear to float on the water, and pairs of sun-loungers. Adjacent to the hot tub is the Campfire Pavilion which faces inwards. Warmed by a fire during winter, it is an inviting nook for lounging and relaxing.
