A Perfectly Serene Desert Spa
In the most succinct way possible, by using a box shape in the middle of the living room, the room doubles as a perfectly peaceful and serene bedroom.
And by using the headboard of the bed as a desk with a view, it is a spacious office.
Behind the bedroom, this elegantly laid out bathroom is private behind a wall of closet space.
And from the public view in, it is once more a welcoming living room, betraying nothing private.
Children’s rooms too get a breath of healthy fresh air.
The detailing on this bench/perimeter/fireplace is exquisite in its perfect simplicity.
The Amangiri Resort and Spa condenses the dry desert limestone surroundings into a concentrated and perfect harmony of rock and air.
What a beautiful, strange mystery is this submerged platform carved in blocks from the dry desert rock landscape, culminating in this square of golden water.
The landscape has set foot in the rather more mundane tourist resort pool.
The pale shades of the surrounding stone landscape is echoed in the natural stone floors and pigmented concrete walls.
Even the built-in stone furniture continues the pale neutral shades, blending with light-coloured cushions and throws.
They have concocted a place as still as the dry mountains beyond, perfect for meditation.
