Sometimes the most amazing way to see a fantastic place is from a fantastic pool. Does it seriously get any better than that?

Just because you're surrounded by natural beauty, doesn't mean you'll have to "rough it." The Amangani Resort offers five-star accommodations and a five-star pool with one of the most stunning panoramic views imaginable. After a long day of hiking the nearby national parks in the summer or skiing the fresh powder pistes of Jackson Hole in the winter, enjoy the sunset from the 115-foot heated outdoor pool and adjacent whirlpool.

Even on a snowy winter day, the pool maintains an average temperature of 80 degrees, so you can enjoy all of Amangani's facilities all year long. If you start to feel chilly, head in to the Grill, the resort's restaurant, appointed in redwood paneling with a wood burning fireplace and a kitchen serving locally sourced, sustainable fare.
A stay at the first Aman resort in North America puts the wilderness in your backyard, with easy access to both the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. That is, of course, if you're able to force yourself out of the pool!
