The untamed Wild West has never looked so refined and inviting as at Amangani. Set on a rise with jaw-dropping views of the snowcapped Grand Tetons and the magnificent Big Country expanse of Wyoming, this resort promises breathtaking four-season experiences.
The hotel is located just ten minutes outside Jackson, Wyoming, almost at the feet of the Grand Tetons, the youngest and among the most striking peaks of the Rockies. It's also a daytrip away from Yellowstone National Park. In short, this is a locale of magnificent wilderness, where indigenous wildlife still roams undisturbed among wildflowers and rough brush. (The resort offers dozens of ways to witness and explore it.)
Built from Oklahoma sandstone and Pacific redwood, the hotel is a perfect visual complement to its surroundings. It employs an earthy palette of browns, reds, and yellows, along with materials and textures indigenous to the area. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramic views, and regional artwork on the wood-paneled walls, cowhide chairs in the lounge, and slate floors accentuate the Western ambience. But rather than evoking a rough-hewn lodge, the Amangani conveys sophistication and elegance.
Amangani offers 40 intimate suites that embrace the nature motif while offering maximum comfort and appeal. Faux wolf throw rugs, tables formed from pine stumps, rattan and cowhide furnishing, and fireplaces represent the "wilder" elements of your room. Modern accents like lush king-size beds, daybeds by the window, and backlit polished wood paneling make staying here immeasurably comfortable. Those who love deluxe bathrooms will have a hard time leaving the soaking tub on account of its breathtaking outdoor views; suites are outfitted with decks and wrought-iron tables and chairs for drinking in the scenery some more.
Seven different categories of suites all follow a similar design pattern but vary mainly in size and views. Amangani also offers four-bedroom homes for rent, each individually decorated but following the hotel's aesthetic principles. Wherever you stay, don't miss the Takoda Room, a great place to hangout surrounded by a mod Western vibe, an art-filled gallery, and a library that will expand your mental horizons with subjects like local flora and fauna and Native American culture.
The Amangani experience changes with each season. Spring and summer bring nature closer to you, with mountain biking, hiking and trekking, wildlife-watching, and fly-fishing among the most popular excursions. Biologist-led wildlife safaris track grizzly bears, bison, moose, coyotes, and hundreds of bird species, including bald eagles. In fall and winter, the air thins and the cold sets in. It's ski season at Jackson Hole, one of the most beloved ski destinations in the county. And Amangani owns a private lounge there for your après-ski comfort, served by a complimentary shuttle from the resort. Before winter sets in, though, take a special trip to witness elk during mating season and watch fall foliage explode. Once the land is covered in a blanket of snow, take a horse-drawn sleigh ridewith dinner on a full moon. It rarely gets more romantic.
