24 Aug A Camp of Your Own – Aman
As Aman resorts across the globe carefully begin to reawaken, deep in the Utah desert Camp Sarika is both the newest and perhaps most intimate of them all. For the first time, the Camp will be available for exclusive bookings throughout 2021 where groups of up to 30 guests can experience the magic of Aman’s latest location all to themselves. Offering ten-tented spacious pavilions anchored to their extraordinary surroundings, Camp Sarika is a secluded escape where the theatre of nature is perfectly balanced with Aman’s pioneering standards of privacy, luxury and hospitality.
Available on selected dates from April – October 2021 the ‘A Camp of Your Own’ experience delivers a full three-night immersion in the destination from wellness, cuisine and outdoor activities. The ultimate group hideaway, those seeking a family gathering place, corporate meeting space or a well-awaited reunion with friends are guaranteed to make new discoveries on an adventure like no other. Where fresh air is found in abundance, Camp Sarika is truly one of the world’s most remote destinations; a private corner of the wild west; an idyllic backdrop to any intimate celebration.
Immerse oneself in nature with a personalised itinerary of daily activities curated to showcase the most intriguing aspects of Native American culture; seek geological wonders via guided hike, venture through the corridors of Antelope Canyon or discover the vastness of the plateau via e-bike. By night, tales around the campfire follow sand-colored sunsets, with indulgent locally inspired cuisine, served family-style, under starry skies.
Wellness is a central part of this exclusive experience at Camp Sarika which comes with a dedicated therapist on hand each day, offering a menu at the Camp’s spa inspired by traditional Navajo wellness practices, to rekindle a feeling of harmony among the uncertainty of everyday life. Allow the resort’s boundless space and isolated location reveal a sense of calm and relish the opportunity to reconnect with family, friends or colleagues in a safe haven. Retreat to a tented pavilion to recharge in a natural, light-flooded space; one’s very own Aman place of peace.
The first year-round camp of its kind in North America, Camp Sarika opened 1 July 2020 and celebrates the remoteness of its unique 55-hectare environment. Encompassing Aman’s DNA, the tented encampment has been carefully integrated into the landscape, with incredible architecture and design that complements the vast wilderness that surrounds. Pavilions with large outdoor decks, desert panoramas and private plunge pools are just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Aman resort, Amangiri. While Camp guests enjoy full access to the resort’s facilities whenever they wish, everything they need is conveniently located in Camp Sarika’s territory with its two spa suites, restaurant, sun deck, swimming pool and jacuzzi.
‘A Camp of Your Own’ starts from $67,000 per night including exclusive use of Camp Sarika’s ten tented pavilions sleeping up to 30 guests for three nights. Daily breakfast, lunch, dinner and non-alcoholic beverages are also included alongside a dedicated spa therapist from 11am-7pm and one activity per person, per day.
