Aman Resorts brings its brand of sui generis, otherworldly resorts to the rugged West.
Along the border between Idaho and Wyoming, due south of Yellowstone National Park, is a valley beneath the Teton mountain range, which reaches heights of 7,000 feet. Once a home to Native Americans and later to homesteaders, skiers, and dude ranch enthusiasts, it’s among the world’s most serene natural landscapes. Like with Amangiri—the famed luxury retreat wedged into the rock formations of Utah’s desert—Singaporean hotel empire Aman Resorts decided to bring its brand of sui generis, otherworldly resorts to the rugged West. It’s difficult to find a hotel comparable to the peerless 29-suite Amangani, with its position overlooking Snake River and panoramic Rocky Mountain views. The hotel’s design, with its redwood and sandstone elements and earthy tones allows for a seamless transition between the building and its surroundings—a coziness that does not subside. No matter the weather conditions, the outdoor pool is kept at a soothing 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The solitude and connection to a world far from the sprawl and congestion of the urban environment guests may be used to is enough to convince visitors to never leave.
