Hop into a Flotation Tank

By Nicole Dorsey Straff / November 7, 2011

After a morning of mountain biking or hiking red rocks along the Utah-Arizona border, instantly de-stress with a dip in Amangiri’s huge custom flotation tank. The painted 10-foot cave in the foothills of the canyon is filled with two feet of warm water (95 degrees) and buoyant Dead Sea salts to eradicate jet lag. After a good sensory float, don’t miss a monthly Full Moon Yoga class performed on an adjacent plateau. “People plan it months in advance to see, practice and salute our waning, orange sun. Magical,” says Amangiri assistant spa manager Anthony Andra. amangiri.com
