Amangani (which means “peaceful home”) is Amanresorts'; first North American resort. Nearly 7,000 feet above sea level, the resort overlooks meadows and grazing land. Across the valley is Teton Pass, which divides the Snake River Range from the snow-capped Tetons. The Teton Range, dominated by the 4,200m summit of Grand Teton, is the youngest of the Rocky Mountains. The snow-fed waters of the Snake River gather in the Yellowstone Plateau and wind south through Jackson Hole.
The 40-suite, three-story resort is set on the cliff edge of a butte. Its roof, crafted of cedar shakes, flows like a natural outcropping. Amangani makes extensive use of Oklahoma sandstone and Pacific redwood. Douglas fir and cedar also lend shape and style to the resort. A soaring ceiling and a wide, two-story window with stunning mountain views opens up from the lobby.
Amangani offers 29 Suites, 5 Deluxe Suites, 2 Amangani Suites, 1 Shoshone Suite, 1 Sena Suite, 1 Spring Gulch and the Grand Teton Suite. These suites include a bedroom/living room and a spacious bathroom/dressing room. The living area consists of a king-size platform bed and a gas lit fireplace. Furnishings include a redwood-frame day bed for lounging, a black resin-and-terrazzo dining table, woven cowhide chairs in faux wolf fabric and a pine-stump table. The suites also offer a mini-bar, a CD player, a TV/DVD and a two-line phone with data plug-in, as well as complimentary WIFI. Living-area walls are decorated with back-lit cedar planks. Sliding glass doors lead to a deck, with mountain and valley views. A deep soaking tub with a window view highlights the large bathroom/dressing area and the twin vanities and shower room are trimmed in slate. Double dressing areas include a full-length mirror, as well as drawers, shelves and open closet space for two. The floor is of clear-heart redwood.

A wood-burning fireplace, redwood-panelled walls and ceiling, specially commissioned artwork and window views to the mountains lend a mood of stylish comfort.
