I’ve stayed at Amangiri in the past, but have never stayed in the Mesa Home, so I was excited to check it off my Amangiri bucket list. You can read my full review of the resort from our last stay here. We’ve also stayed at Camp Sarika, and you can read that review here.
The Mesa Home is located on the Amangiri property and is less than a five-minute drive from the main resort. It is situated behind a rock formation that shelters it from the main resort and provides unobstructed views all around.
For check-in, you can either go directly to the Mesa Home or the main property. We were arriving a little after 9am and had arranged breakfast at the main resort, so we went there. The general manager and several other employees were there to greet us.
We headed to breakfast in the desert lounge, and the valets unloaded our cars and took our luggage to the Mesa Home.
After breakfast, we were driven to the Mesa Home and completed the check-in process there.
The Mesa Home offers 4 bedrooms with king-size beds, a living room, family room, dining room, professional kitchen, and a private terrace with a 50ft infinity swimming pool. The understated luxury and desert tones match the rest of the resort and blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape. It is an extraordinary home!
We had a group of 10 staying in the home, so we asked the resort to add a king-size bed to both the living room and the downstairs flex room. It sometimes serves as a game room with a foos-ball table.
The bedrooms are very similar to the resort suites in design and views. We found the rooms spacious and well appointed. Even though we maxed out the amount of guests that could stay in the home, it was very comfortable for our group of 10.
The house is fully equipped with a professional grade kitchen, so guests have the ability to cook their own meals at the house. The resort will also stock the kitchen with any groceries you request. Alternatively, each Mesa Home guest can opt in to the resort’s meal plan, which is $200 per person per day to make it all inclusive. Our group opted for the meal plan.
There is also a washer and dryer just off the kitchen for Mesa Home guests to use.
Since we elected for the resort’s meal plan, we ordered most breakfasts and lunches to the house. For those meals, we placed one big order, which was then driven over to the house from the kitchen at the main resort. Given the amount of food 10 people ordered, I was surprised at how quickly it was delivered and elegantly set up, either at the outdoor dining table or inside the dining room.
Housekeeping is similar to the hotel in that they clean your room once a day and provide a turn down service as well. It was a small housekeeping team that was clearing a very large house, so I think the resort could have benefited from assigning 1 or 2 more people to the housekeeping team because cleaning took a long time.
As a Mesa Home guest, you have full access to the resort’s amenities. We booked a group Via Ferrata climb one morning as well as the Chinle site for a private dinner our last night.
The pool at the house was the highlight. The average temperature was about 90 degrees most days we were there, and the pool provided the perfect gathering place for our group. It was heated so it wasn’t cold but still felt refreshing.
The Mesa Home at Amangiri is a great option for family or small group gatherings, offering space and privacy at the same time.
We maxed out the capacity at 10 people, so the resort lacks options for parties larger than 10 people.
The food at Amangiri is top notch, and you can order as much as you want, which makes the meal plan worth it in my opinion.
