Located in Canyon Point in southern Utah, Amangiri is a stunning desert resort created by hotelier Adrian Zecha and architects Wendell Burnette, Marwan Al-Sayed and Rick Joy.

The resort is designed to blend into the landscape with neutral tones and natural elements, but it doesn’t stop there.

The swimming pool was constructed to accommodate a 165-million-year-old Entrada sandstone rock escarpment. But don’t call it an intrusion — the result is an awe-inspiring look that speaks to the harmony between natural and man-made environments. And with king-sized poolside daybeds, an adjacent spa and campfire terrace, this unique poolscape can be admired day and night.

So while you can’t move mountains, you can certainly build around them.
