Add This One To Your Bucket List

Amangiri is a hidden gem located in south-central Utah. The resort is home to some of the most breathtaking sights I’ve ever seen. So stoked I had the chance to experience it with my Revolve fam.

Upon arriving at Amangiri, we checked into our room and quickly ran off to join the rest of the Revolve crew for an insanely beautiful horseback ride through the majestic terrain.

Post ride, we headed to the pool for some relaxation. Words don’t do the architecture of Amangiri justice but to sum it up – it’s basically heaven on earth. The space was developed and designed by architectural trio Marwan Al-Sayed, Wendell Burnette and Rick Joy. The triple threat worked together to create a design that would seamlessly align with the stark scenery and beautiful rock formations. Needless to say, I’ve never felt more one with nature while sitting poolside.

Our first night at Amangiri, we were greeted with the most gorgeous sunset! Such an amazing way to kick off our trip. Every dinner we had at the resort was picture perfect, complete with outdoor fire pits and gorgeous candle lit table settings. For dessert, we indulged in s’mores and sunk into a hot tub that overlooked the stars – we were truly glamping. Even better? I had the best company by my side and made so many new friends including my Filipino sista sista, Shay Mitchell.

The next day we got up early to check out Slot Canyon which is located in Page, Arizona. Making our way through the canyon, our view kept getting better and better. Each turn we made was even more exciting than the last.

A quick change and small excursion later, we made it to Horseshoe Bend which was just about as unreal as it looks. The bend itself lives on private Navajo land and there wasn’t a soul in sight besides our crew. We enjoyed a little happy hour overlooking the striking Colorado River that encompasses the bend and kicked back to take it all in.

On day 3, Matt and I decided to do a little exploring on our own before heading out for a helicopter ride with the rest of the Revolve crew. It was nice to take a break from my typical colorful style and go more neutral, blending in with my surroundings.

After strapping up headsets and helicopter fanny packs, we buckled in for our flight overlooking Antelope Point Marina and Lake Powell. It wasn’t before long that we landed on top of the most epic lunch location – the Tower Butte Monument. At 5,000 feet above sea level, I can honestly say I’ve never been more lifted for lunch (pun intended).

So, you may be wondering – should Amangiri be on your vacation bucket list? The answer is yes, a thousand times over! The memories made during our 4-day stay are priceless and completely worth the two-flight journey it takes to get to the remote paradise. This made the trip all the more meaningful and allowed me to detox from my day-to-day routine. Whether you’re in search of the most beautiful sunset surrounded by towering cliffs or to disconnect from the hustle and bustle, Amangiri is the place for you. Not going to lie, I’m already looking for an excuse to go back myself! Don’t just take my word for it – add it to your list. I promise you won’t regret it.
