Amanresorts, which specializes in the über-luxe and superdiscreet, built its three-story, 40-suite lodge on the edge of a butte overlooking the Snake River Valley. The property is several miles out of town and has an inspiring view of the Grand Tetons. The designers knew it too, and kept artwork and bright decor to a minimum; in both the guest rooms and the public spaces, walls of redwood and sandstone, high ceilings, and huge windows capitalize on rather than compete with the landscape outside. Because of the Amangani's intimate size and a staff-to-guest ratio of more than two to one, personalized service is the standard. The executive chef meets each guest to inquire about individual tastes (and the dining room never closes), and if that Hollywood director's lady friend is sitting in the hot tub and the wind picks up, it takes only seconds for a spa attendant to offer a beanie to keep her ears from getting cold.

This resort atop a butte "affords amazing privacy," and has many balconies from which "you can just gaze at the Tetons over a lovely horse-filled valley." Its perfect-scoring design employs native materials and natural textures like sandstone columns and Pacific redwood walls. Guest rooms, all suites, have floor-to-ceiling windows, wood floors, woven cowhide chairs, metal fireplaces, and back-lit cedar or fir planks. The Grill's "locally famous chef" produces "delicious, elegantly presented" contemporary American cuisine. "The helpful concierge is great at suggesting outdoor activities."
