The Amangiri is an amazing hotel ; the architecture is stunning, the location makes it a one of a kind hotel. Rooms are beautiful, very large, the outdoor area opening directly on the, almost endless, stunning landscape is breath taking. Bathrooms are just awesome, double showers, bathtub, a lot of space for your personal belongings and very large closets. Complimentary minibar. The pool is a must see. We went to the spa, didn't have treatments, but enjoyed the steamroom and sauna (both just beautiful), there's a small pool to relax by, very quiet and relaxing. This is a place where you can really forget everything and unwind. The overall feel is very zen like. We took a pilates class, hikes, did a via ferrata, a boat tour, paddle boarding, their teachers and guides are knowledgable, attentive and very professional. There are many great activities you can do.The muted tones of the whole complex, reminiscent of the colors you see in the surroundings, the gorgeous interior decoration...really if you can splurge, it's worth the experience !!
The only downsides : everyone was friendly and helpful, yet the staff is sometimes a bit "green" and not up to a five star hotel level. The food is mostly a disappointment, just average, again not what you'd expect in a five star hotel and you really have no other choice but the hotel's restaurant around (breakfast is fine). We spoke to the assistant manager about it and he said it's difficult to find the right people to work all the way out there !! I can only imagine and I give it a five star rating in spite of those 2 weak points, which they are very aware of and working to improve.
