Amangani RB 240113
High above the town of Jackson in Wyoming, Amangani (peaceful home) clings
to the crest of East Gros Ventre Butte, some 2,135 metres (7,000 feet) above sea level.
The 40-suite retreat is a year-round destination acting as a premier ski resort from
December through March, and an ideal base for exploring the magnificent natural
surroundings in the warmer months.
Amangani embraces the spirit of the American West, featuring floor-to-ceiling columns
of Oklahoma sandstone, ceilings and walls in Pacific redwood, and chairs of rattan
and woven cowhide.
With its soaring redwood
ceiling, large wood-burning
fireplaces and two-storey
window wall, the Lounge
affords open views of the
Snake River Range and
Spring Gulch below.
Located next to the Lounge,
the Library is a comfortable,
light-filled room (above right).
A selection of books on Western
and Native American culture,
as well as the region’s flora
and fauna, is available. CDs,
DVDs and games may be
borrowed by guests.
The adjacent Takoda
Room (left), furnished
with a wood-burning
fireplace, is available for
meetings and specialoccasion dining.
Terrazzo tables, metalsculpted elk art and a
wood-burning fireplace
lend a distinctive
ambience to The Grill,
Amangani’s 65-seat
dining room which
is open for breakfast,
lunch and dinner.
The Zinc Bar is
an ideal venue for
casual refreshments
throughout the day.
Each suite includes a king-size platform bed, fireplace, window-side day bed, terrazzo dining table, woven cowhide chairs in
faux-wolf fabric and a pine-stump table. Walls are decorated with back-lit cedar planks. The large bathroom and dressing area
features a deep-soaking tub, twin vanities and a shower room trimmed in slate. Floors are finished in clear-heart redwood.
The Spring Gulch Suite (right) covers
63 square metres (676 square feet) and
offers a large terrace with spectacular
views. This suite is situated at the
highest level of the resort. The Grand
Teton Suite (above and below) features
a spacious balcony with magnificent
views of the Grand Teton Range.
Only a 20-minute complimentary drive from Amangani, the vast and varied ski terrain of Jackson Hole’s
Rendezvous and Aprés Vous mountains is suited to skiers of all levels.
Conveniently located just below Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Bridger Gondola, at the base of Rendezvous
Mountain, Amangani’s private Ski Lounge provides easy access to some of America’s finest ski slopes.
In winter, Jackson Hole becomes a snow-covered playground. Guests can ski and snowboard to their hearts’ content as well as
enjoy dog-sledding, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice skating. A 10-minute drive from Amangani, the town of
Jackson offers warmer entertainment in the form of museums, art galleries and boutiques.
The 35-metre (115-foot)
heated outdoor swimming
pool is linked to a whirlpool.
The Spa and Fitness Centre features treatment rooms, exercise studios, separate steam rooms and individualised yoga
programmes. Other resort facilities include the Gallery, where local art, jewellery and antiques can be purchased.
Amangani’s accommodation options
include 29 Suites, five Deluxe Suites,
the Shoshone Suite, two Amangani
Suites, the Sena Suite, the Grand
Teton Suite, the Spring Gulch Suite
and a number of Aman Villas
known as Amangani Homes.
Guests staying in
Amangani Homes enjoy
all of the resort’s services,
from housekeeping to
private dining, as well as
full use of Amangani’s
award-winning facilities.
Floor-to-ceiling windows
offer some of the most
spectacular panoramas
in Jackson Hole.
A year-round destination, Jackson Hole is known for its skiing but offers a multitude of activities in spring, summer and fall.
These include hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, fly fishing, river trips and hot air ballooning. Elk, bison, bighorn
sheep, mule deer and the occasional moose and pronghorn may be sighted on four-wheel-drive safaris.
Amangani has its roots in the American West, in the cattle ranches that
wind through the valley below, and in the Rocky Mountains that rise as
a backdrop to the wide-open plains.
