Amangani Resort – Wyoming – USA
The first Aman resort in North America, Amangani opened in October 1998. Boasting 40 suites as well as private homes, Amangani is a 20-minute drive from the Jackson Hole Airport, 10 minutes from the town of Jackson, and 20 minutes from the ski slopes. Amangani sits 700 feet above the valley on a private butte, providing guests with a peaceful and secluded experience and unrivalled panoramic views of the Tetons. Cut into the hillside, the three-storey resort’s design follows the contours of the butte in an all-but-seamless melding with the landscape. Amangani offers a diverse adventure program which includes summer activities such as hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, and fly fishing, and winter activities such as skiing, snow shoeing, dog sledding and snowmobiling. Amangani is within easy driving distance to the southern gateway of Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. Guests can also enjoy private wildlife excursions to view majestic animals such as black bears and grizzly bears, bison, elk, mule deer, moose, pronghorn and coyote. The Aman Spa at Amangani offers guests with a variety of indulgent treatments.
In Touch with Nature
Since Amangani is located on a migratory path for deer, elk and moose, it offers wildlife excursions for our guests to view the animals that make up the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, which is the last fully in-tact ecosystem in the lower 48 States. Amangani has partnered with the Teton Science Schools to create our “Wolf & Bear Expedition” which takes guests into the Lamar Valley where they can view Grizzly Bear and Grey Wolf, the latter of which was almost extinct until it the Grey Wolf was re-introduced in 1998.
Dining menu features a menu of locally-sourced ingredients from sustainable farms, which changes regularly to feature the best seasonal ingredients. Amangani Supports local non-profit organizations like Teton Science Schools and Raptor Center and local artists in onsite gallery showcasing art, antiques, crafts, jewellery, pottery and paintings from the area. Photography workshops are offered with renowned landscape and wilderness photographer David Brookover.
Amangani actively lives in sustainable practices, such as recycling and energy saving programs. The resort is crafted from soft-hued Oklahoma sandstone, Douglas fir, cedar and Pacific redwood and all the materials of the resort are harmonious with the environment. With its ecological principals and stunning surroundings, Amangani is the ideal base for exploring the magnificent natural spirit of the West and wildlife safaris which are led by biologist guides.
