Eight of 31 Villas at Amangiri Released for Sale at $7 Million

Majestic private canyons in the dramatic desert wilderness of Southern Utah will soon be home to an enclave of 31 luxury Villas at Amangiri. Eight of the villas, priced beginning at $7 million, will be released for sale today by the resort’s developer, Larkspur, Calif.-based Canyon Group.

“These villas are the ultimate base camp in America’s newest luxury destination, the rugged desert of the ‘old wild’ West,” said Homi Vazifdar, managing director, Canyon Group. “Here, from your own private canyon that was created more than 200 million years ago, you have nature as far as the eye can see, every world-class resort amenity and among the world’s best outdoor adventures at your doorstep.”

The Villas at Amangiri

The Villas at Amangiri – “giri” describes rock formations in Sanskrit – are just minutes from Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Recreation Area, and within easy reach of the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley and the Colorado River. The resort is served by daily flights from Phoenix, Ariz. into nearby Page Municipal Airport (PGA), which can also accommodate private aircraft.

Each villa is designed to appear as if sculpted from the land and blend seamlessly into the natural landscape on private home sites that range from 1.3 to 10 acres.

The organic architecture, multiple pavilions surrounding generous outdoor spaces with a central swimming pool and firepit, frames vast panoramas of desert and sky.

Each villa also incorporates a unique signature feature, such as an arroyo meditation platform, and includes unlimited access to the amenities of Amangiri Resort (scheduled to open in early 2009), including world-class recreation, a full-service spa and an array of residential concierge services.
