11 best hotel pools

Sunset Logo By Rachel Levin of Sunset | Slide 1 of 11: Amangiri Hotel, Canyon Point, UTA trippy desert oasis, Amangiri is gracefully plunked in Navajo country, hidden among giant sandstone rocks. Although the resort is technically in the middle of nowhere, it is within striking distance of America’s greatest outbacks, including Zion. But the real national treasure might very well be the resort’s pool. It resembles a serene lake and is literally carved into the landscape, flowing around millions-year-old rock. There are chaises from which to stare at all the Earth’s layers. Meanwhile, two barefoot steps away are watsu and massage and, as is the Aman way, more servers than guests at your beck and call. From $1,900; aman.com.
