The first three days of this Getaway take you to the top of Colorado’s mountains. Buried deep into the slopes between Durango and Telluride, here you will discover the romance of homesteading at Dunton Hot Springs, an 1800’s mining town that has been reimagined as an encampment of fourteen luxury cabins. Each cabin has its own, unique charms: the Dunton Store Cabin, formerly the general store for the town of Dunton, is filled with American West centric film memorabilia; the Potter House, which offers panoramic views of the surrounding Rocky Mountain peaks, is situated between two trout ponds, ideal for fishing enthusiasts; the Well House Cabin is Dunton’s only cabin built around its own hot spring, providing an en-suite hot spring experience. Speaking of the natural hot springs, soaking in the steamy ponds that dot the property is a transcendent experience after a crisp morning hike or a day’s cross-country ski through the powdery trails that traverse the property. As are evenings spent star gazing under a wide-open sky or enjoying good conversation and strong drinks at the saloon (look for Butch Cassidy’s signature carved into the bar). Fly fishers will enjoy world-class conditions on the property’s exclusive nine-mile stretch of the West Fork of the Delores, whereas mountaineers will find unparalleled opportunities to hike, climb, ride, and snowshoe up the 14,000-foot peaks.
After you have been fully rejuvenated by the fresh mountain air, you will descend to Canyon Point, Utah, where you will spend three days at the award-winning Amangiri resort. Amangiri is the best of its kind — a refined, luxury resort to its core, Amangiri exudes eco-chic. With a total of 34 suites, Amangiri has been designed to seamlessly blend in with its desert surrounding and to minimize its impact on this unique landscape. Amongst the list of “must-dos” are dips in the one-of-a-kind pool built around a towering boulder; walking the “Cave Trail” which leads to a false mine used as the set of the 1996 film Broken Arrow; partaking in a boating trip on Lake Powell where you can dock off-shore in one of the many secret bays; and receiving treatments at the Aman Spa that houses a floatation therapy pavilion, water pavilion with sauna, steam room, cold plunge and step pool, fitness center, and yoga pavilion.
