This is my first stay at an Aman resort. We were literally blown away by this property. The bar has been raised. The property is amazing, the rooms and the service are all top notch. This is well above a 5 star property. First of all, service was impeccable. When we returned to our room after breakfast, the room had already been cleaned - this is a first in any of our travels. The food was excellent. Incredible selection in an isolated location. When you stay here, you eat all of your meals in the dining room. While dining, the views are incredible. Our servers were great, especially Kay and Stephanie. One interesting part of this property is the Via Ferrata, literally road of iron. You climb the surrounding hills and rocks with an experienced guide. Climbing steps and clipping in and out of a steel cable. I felt safe the entire climb. We did not know about this activity until we arrived at the resort, and I highly recommend it. What a rush. Bring a camera. I did two of these hikes with my guide, Yermo. At first you don't think that it is possible for a novice to attempt some of these climbs. With gently coaching and a can do attitude you accomplish something totally out of your comfort zone. One of our servers put it best when she said that doing one of these hikes is empowering. On my first Via, you climb up a canyon to the top of one of the mesas, you cross an amazing bridge and then climb back down - takes about 2 hours. When you are done, your first thought is when can I do another one. I next climbed 750 feet with Yermo. Up rocks and steps to an unforgettable view of the resort, Lake Powell and even Bryce, miles away. Not to be missed. I think that I have found a new hobby.
