20 to Watch: 2010's Best Up-and-Coming Hotels
Courtesy of Amanresorts
Amanresorts is known for delivering superior service, but travelers to the group’s latest stateside hotel are often most impressed with the unconventional architecture: 13 cliffside pavilions with views of the mesas of Canyon Point and the sandstone desert. After a day spent hiking the Grand Canyon or boating on Lake Powell, guests relax on one of two outdoor treatment terraces at the 25,000-square-foot spa and stargaze after dark. Doubles from $950.
