Camp Sarika – an intimate luxury encampment within the Amangiri site – has opened in Canyon Point, Utah.

Marking the first year-round camp of its type in the country, the 10-tent cluster offers a secluded retreat with a private plunge pool and outdoor terrace for each lodging. Named after the Sanskrit word for open space and sky, the remote camp overlooks 55 hectares of flat-top mesas towards Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

Designed by San-Francisco based Luxury Frontiers, the project references the sandstone formations surrounding the camp by way of soft canvas woven from plastic bottles and wooden fittings that contrast the blackened steel of Amangiri. Within each tent, interiors are characterised by bespoke walnut and leather furnishings, etched timber headboards, leather straps and sliding doors.

Elsewhere, a central pavilion linking the camp has been designed by New York-based Selldorf Architects to recall the main Amangiri building, with simple concrete blocks, clean lines and minimal styling.

Camp Sarika also incorporates its own dining experiences, with chef Anthony Marazita overseeing a menu of ethically sourced dishes with a Southwestern Native American focus.

Opened in 2009, Amangiri site is a short five minute drive from the camp, with guests at the camp able to access the full list of amenities available at the main resort.
