First of all I will say that I havent stayed at an Aman resort before - so cannot speak for the service comparisons elsewhere...
Loved the hotel style, the room was expansive and had a great view and one of the most comfortable soft beds ever (the basic level suite). Also really liked all the public spaces and the pool looked great (although the weather was way too cold to try it).
Most of all we thought the food was great - inventive and just enough options for a few nights stay. I also enjoy the fact that when you are staying at an isolated location that its an all inclusive rate - theres nothing worse than being captive and paying silly rates for food! Thankfully this is not the case at Amangiri.
Amangiri is a great place for couples and families - there are an abundance of activities on offer, and some great hikes to do. The landscape is the real star though, and having a hotel out here in such an isolated destination makes it a real location to visit. If you actually feel like a day trip its central to Lake Powel and Zion National Park, and about 5 hours drive to Las Vegas, with the drive a very cool one.
