amangani hotel: jackson hole, wyoming
In watching an episode of HGTV's The Outdoor Room, host Jamie Durie took an inspirational trip to the Amangani hotel located in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I was absolutely blown away by the resort......first of all, the location is simply breathtaking. The hotel is perched upon a high mountain valley that is 7,000 feet above sea level, so you can just imagine the views! It seems like it's pretty much plopped in the middle of nowhere, an area that is so serene and secluded in both the summer and wintertime. The architectural elements are stunning, as well as the choice of raw materials used to build this masterpiece in order for it to blend into its environment. The environment and architecture are complemented by the resort's numerous amenities and activites. All of one's needs can be fulfilled by the grill, lounge, library, takoda room (used for meetings, private dinners, events, etc.), gallery, spa & fitness center, heated outdoor swimming and whirlpool, etc., along with a wide variety of suites and homes for rent. The activities are endless.......for all you ski nuts, the resort was voted No. 1 Ski Hotel in North America by Conde Nast Traveler and also provides cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, dog-sledding, horse-drawn sleigh rides, you name it! When the weather breaks, make way for wildlife safaris, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, golfing......
