Camp Sarika – Southern Utah

Luxury Frontiers, the San Francisco and Johannesburg-based international design and development firm, has conceived and designed exclusive luxury accommodation for Camp Sarika by Amangiri in Southern Utah. This first-ever North American all-weather, year-round camp is home to 10 luxury tents nestled at the foot of Utah’s mighty mesas. Luxury Frontiers’ design is a contextual tribute, captivating the senses while creating intimacy within the vast landscape. 
Given the Sanskrit name for “open space” and “sky,” Camp Sarika is surrounded by 600 acres of expansive wilderness. Not only does the camp offer carefully curated vistas of rocky outcrops and flat-topped mesas, but it also grants guests access to five National Parks, numerous National Monuments, the Navajo Nation Reservation, and the amenities of the nearby Amangiri.
Luxury Frontiers’ concept is driven by contextual design which is evident in the effortless unfolding of the architecture into the landscape. The tented pavilions bow toward monumental sandstone formations and welcome guests inside with the soft intimacy of a natural canvas tent. The design thrives on both an aesthetic and performance level. In keeping with its natural setting, Luxury Frontiers has designed the tents to withstand the potentially harsh environmental elements of the site, such as temperatures varying from 20° to 105° F.
Inside, camp-style custom walnut desks are outfitted with drawers, slung with leather side pouches for magazines and information packs, and completed with a bespoke campaign chair with a sophisticated leather finish. Etched timber headboards on the king and twin beds reference the carved surrounding landscape and are finished with soft cushions suspended from leather straps. 
The outdoor areas of the tented units are equally beautiful. With access via Douglas Fir sliding doors, guests are invited to relax in a private heated plunge pool, stretch out on a deck arrayed with comfortable loungers, or gather around a campfire complete with fireside furniture. The deck is thoughtfully shaded from the harsh Utah sun by a highly engineered extended canvas overhang allowing for seamless integration between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
