Camp Sarika: the regenerating power of nature

Writer

Located in the desert of Utah, Camp Sarika is a luxury resort made up of ten pavilion-tents allowing to enjoy a direct connection with nature.

During the hard months just passed we have felt the need for wide, pure and uncontaminated open spaces as never before. Camp Sarika in Amangiri, a resort of the Aman chain located in Utah (USA) perfectly meets this need, offering a wild-life experience in the desert. Made up of ten luxury pavilion-tents overlooking the mesas – the flat-top massifs similar to those of the nearby Grand Canyon, Camp Sarika, whose name derives from a Sanskrit word meaning “open space” and “sky”, is a resort in the middle of wilderness where you can enjoy the regenerating power of nature. Designed by studio Luxury Frontiers, the pavilion-tents are structures following the sandstone formations typical of the area, covered with soft canvas obtained from recycled plastic bottles, in line with the philosophy of Aman, always sensitive to ethical and sustainable tourism.

The decoration of each pavilion includes walnut and leather customised furniture while outdoor spaces, also private, feature a terrace, pool, fireplace and telescope to admire a magnificent starry sky. Camp Sarika’s main pavilion, designed by architecture studio Selldorf Architects in a style that pays homage to the modernist architecture of the nearby resort Amangiri, hosts a refined restaurant that proposes a menu made only with fresh local products. Surrounded by several national monuments, by the Navajo Reserve and by five national parks including Zion, Grand Canyon and Bryce, Camp Sarika offers a privileged position to explore the natural and cultural attractions of the region.
