Close to Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam, this exceptional resort is set amid 600 acres of stupendous desert landscape. Austere yet appropriate concrete structures contain 34 rooms, some with plunge pools, in two wings. Suites have courtyards and living areas leading onto private “sky terraces” with fireplaces. A huge central pavilion with woodburning fires houses the lobby, a library, a dining room and a striking open kitchen with a wood-fired oven. On one side, picture windows frame the desert; on the other, glass doors open onto a patio beside an extraordinary pool winding around a dramatic escarpment. The principal amenity is a serene 25,000-square-foot spa with a sauna and a steam room. The resort’s new Camp Sarika nearby encompasses 10 luxurious tented guest pavilions, a pool, a restaurant and spa facilities.
