OK, the cost of this hotel is absurd, but seemingly, one has to pay through the nose for what should be ordinary decencies: like top quality design and a comfortable clean bed. The failure of other hotels to do basic things well means the Aman can charge what it likes - and it does. The sums of money are sickening... More

Incredibel amenities, service and atmosphere. Very good inventive food. One of the best resorts I have ever visited. Fabulous for lovers of outdoor activites who enjoy being pampered after a long day of hiking, climbing.

I have never thought the desert can be beautiful but this place changed my mind. As usual loved the Aman architecture and 'sense of place'. The hotel is not obtrusive and has a very quiet elegance to it. Looking out at the brilliant stars at night was meditative. Staff is very friendly and the General Manager and his wife was... More

I am not sure where to start. Start to finish, everything taken care of and everything well appointed. What was more of a delight was the cuisine as I am vegetarian and the chef was able to accommodate my needs. I am so glad we went with the Desert pool suite just for the added convenience of not having to... More

We went to Aman for the first time with very high expectations. We were not disappointed with facilities, rooms and cleaningness but the restaurant is quite bellow expectations. The menu was very short, portions small to the extreme and wine selection very poor. We were planning to stay for 5 nights but left in 3 nights. The boat tour on... More

We stayed at Amangiri for 2 nights/3 days in the middle of our week long Sedona vacation. The drive from Arizona was beautiful and when we arrived in the vicinity across the Utah boarder, it certainly became a bit of a struggle finding the resort. You are only given directions to the location once you are booked and pre-paid. Despite... More

So I'll start with what was pretty bad about the experience- I had booked several months in advance and low and behold two days after the heavy 30 day no refund policy had kicked in there has been a situation that had made me need to cancel the reservation. After I was told I couldn't, I made a few phone... More

I agree with many of the positive comments made about the Amangiri in other reviews. The setting is definitely the star. Our hikes on property were a highlight, as well as select tours we did of the area. Be warned, though, this location is not convenient to the national parks. They are all a 2+ hour drive away. In the... More

We came here the week before Christmas and stayed 2 nights/3days to celebrate our engagement before heading off to be with family for the holiday. From the moment we arrived the service was on point. We were greeted by the site manager and staff whom gave us a brief tour of the grounds. After settling in we headed to the... More

We spent several days at the resort and I would like to address the issues with service and the food which some people seem to have a problem with. I did look for the "big guy" in the kitchen and I found him. He still there. I had the chef 's special every night, and I was very pleased and... More
