This minimalist resort in the Utah desert is a favourite for celebrities, it is also popular with any traveller looking for privacy and uber-luxurious digs. While every room here is incredible, none matches the elegance of the Girijaala Suite.
At over 3,500 square feet, the room boasts a large, private lap pool, a sweeping terrace overlooking majestic rock formations; and, a sky lounge area where guests can bed down for the night under the clear Utah skies. But don’t worry if you get chilly: the interior of the room has a cozy king-size bed and a deep-soaking tub.

There are also multiple sleeping options in the treehouse, including a sleep-out platform with a retractable awning on the top floor, as well as a covered, weather-proof king bed on the third.
