Hotel: Camp Sarika by Amangiri in Kane County, Utah
For the best of both worlds—wild, rugged beauty and pure pampering—base camp in one of Camp Sarika by Amangiri’s 10 luxury one-bedroom tents (the smallest is 1,000 square feet) at this 600-acre, year-round expanse, open since summer of 2020. Guides help build your dream itinerary at three local national parks: Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, and Bryce Canyon. These canvas-roofed, stone-walled tents spare no luxuries. Many boast private plunge pools and all flaunt private terraces—with breathtaking canyon views—plus amenities like air conditioning, underfloor heating, rain showers or a soaking tub in the bath, and separate sleeping and living areas.
Two-bedroom tents appeal to families (stocked with telescopes, for stargazing; and fire pits, for s’mores) to further spread out. Bored in your tent and craving community? Meander into the restaurant, pool, and lounge area to mingle—activities include evening storytelling and stargazing over the fire. The property’s trail system is a convenient spot to hike without going far and massages at the 25,000-square-foot spa are a nice treat. Another reason to pack athletic wear is guided outdoor yoga: think sun salutations with Navajo National Monument views. Guests also receive access to dining options at Amangiri, five miles away.
