The 40-suite retreat is a year-round destination acting as a premier ski resort from December through March with a private Ski Lounge at the foot of Rendezvous Mountain. It is also an ideal base for exploring the surrounding national parks in the warmer months when hiking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing and trout fishing are popular attractions.

Set at the southern end of this extensive alpine valley, only 20 minutes by car from the vast and varied ski terrain of Rendezvous and Apres Vous mountains, Amangani offers breathtaking views of the mountain ranges encircling Jackson Hole. Directly across from the three-storey resort is Teton Pass, which divides the Snake River Range from the snow-capped Tetons and their highest peak, the 4,200-metre (13,770-foot) Grand Teton.

Amangani is minutes from Grand Teton National Park and just 100 kilometres (62 miles) from Yellowstone National Park. Amangani offers 40 suites of varying sizes, all with magnificent mountain and valley views.

Suites include a bedroom/living room and a bathroom/dressing room, and provide a king-size bed, fireplace, window-side daybed, dining table and woven cowhide chairs. Sliding glass doors lead to a deck with a wrought-iron table and chairs for taking in the view. A deep soaking tub with mountain views is central to each suite’s bathroom. Amangani also offers four homes with the same aesthetics and design features as the resort.

Amangani Homes are spacious, free-standing dwellings offering four to six bedrooms, daily housekeeping, private dining and full access to the resort’s award-winning facilities.

From Amangani’s entrance, 20 steps sweep down to the Lounge with its double-height windows, soaring redwood ceiling and two wood-burning fireplaces. This is the ideal venue for casual afternoon and evening dining with spectacular views. Amangani’s main dining venue is the Grill, a 65-seat dining room open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Zinc Bar is defined by rugged sandstone columns and intimate, windowside pairings of tables and chairs. In the summer, drinks can be taken out onto the terrace overlooking the pool. Enjoying panoramic mountain views, Amangani’s 35-metre (115-foot) heated outdoor swimming pool is linked to an expansive whirlpool. With a winter water temperature of about 27°C (80°F), both can be enjoyed year-round. Amangani’s Spa and Fitness Centre features two exercise studios, four treatment rooms, a finishing salon and separate steam rooms for men and women.

Both exercise studios offer views over the swimming pool and the valley to the Snake River Range beyond. Other facilities include the Library; the Takoda Room, a relaxed venue for meetings, private dinners and events; and a boutique known as the Gallery.
