Dusty barren dunes and unbearable heat are a couple of things that come to mind when I think about the desert. So spending a week in one and calling it a vacation has never been an option I wanted to consider. This all changed once some of my favorite celebrities started sharing their vacation snaps from one of the most gorgeous desert destinations I've ever seen: the Amangiri Resort.
There is an obvious reason Amangiri, a resort in Canyon Point, UT, has been popping up on your Instagram feed. The celebrity hot spot — which means "peaceful mountain," according to the company's website — has welcomed Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Gordon Ramsay, and the Kardashians. Models such as Candice Swanepoel and Emily Ratajkowski also chose to spend a week in this secluded destination for some much-needed privacy. It seems like Amangiri is not only a place of absolute escape, but also a place where you can get lost in pure indulgence. The resort offers a spa, adventures for couples such as rock climbing, and romantic options like hot air balloon flights. What are you waiting for? I'm convinced that a week in south-central Utah might be exactly what I need! Check out these photos and you might be booking that flight sooner than you think.
