Aman has announced the arrival of Camp Sarika by Amangiri – a serene, luxurious encampment encircled by the Utah desert.
Opening in April 2020, Camp Sarika will encompass 10 tented pavilions with individual private plunge pools, a restaurant, two spa suites, swimming pool and a jacuzzi.
Deriving its name from the Sanskrit word for “open space” and “sky”, Camp Sarika will be set on more than 55 hectares overlooking iconic flat-topped mesa rock formations. Surrounded by five national parks; each offering unique and diverse scenery, numerous national monuments and the Navajo Nation Reservation the camp will enable a back-to-nature, wilderness experience for guests.
Claiming unobstructed views of the mesas or facing west to catch the sunset every evening, the tented pavilions will feature either one or two bedrooms, as well as a living area, dining area, a bar, a private spacious terrace with a fire pit and an individual heated plunge pool.
The five one-bedroom tented pavilions will each cover 175 square metres, while the five two-bedroom tented pavilions will cover 262 square metres.
Designed by Luxury Frontiers, the tented pavilions will mimic the spaciousness and clean lines of the suites at Amangiri, where natural materials reflect the light-transforming, undulating surface of the desert outside, but will evoke a luxury camp feel.
The interiors will include decorative canvas walls and ceilings and wooden fittings, as opposed to Amangiri’s furnishings, which comprise blackened steel and stone.
