Amangiri, and the Blog will continue

OK, So I have decided the Blog will continue. I think I am going to keep the name because it was the Island of Unalaska and the Port Of Dutch Harbor that first inspired me to start this blog, and it will always be a part of my life. 

BUT, new day, New AMAZING job. I'm sorry, but I really can not show any pictures of WHO is staying here, but I can show you some shots of this amazing Resort. These are all taken with my I-Phone so the quality is not as good as my camera, but it still works I think.

 Looking down from the Spa side towards the main pavilion and the enclosed pool.

I love the way the architects thought about everything here, from the wood against the stone to the way the light plays off both of them to create amazing views everywhere, like this simple connecting Hallway between suites,

To the way every room has a picture perfect view of the High Desert outside, like in this Mesa View Suite,
 To the walk up to the pool,
 To the walk to the Spa
 And My favorite Suite, the
Girijjaala Suite!
 This suite is a favorite of many of our guests, and these pictures hardly do it justice.

But all too soon, night falls, the candles are placed and lit and the Day draws to a close.

I really can not say how wonderful it is to be here, how great all my co-workers are, as well as my fellow managers, and just how NICE it is to be appreciated for being a high strung perfectionist who refuses to compromise on guest satisfaction.

Any way, more soon, getting a great apartment at the beginning of next week, but for now I'll just have to suffer another few days as a guest of the hotel.........Have you ever tried one of those "Rain Shower" shower heads?........try two at once in my whole room shower in my current suite!!!

Thanks Everyone for Your Love and Support!

Amangiri, a new adventure begins

First, I want to thank you all for your prayers and best wishes on my job hunt........Let's just say they paid off in ways that I never imagined. I have been offered, and accepted the position of Housekeeping Manager at the Amangiri Resort in Utah.
It is possibly one of the most beautiful resorts on the planet, like all the Aman Properties.
I can not really post all that much about the resort. Because of the exclusive nature of the Resort, and the clientele, I am simply unable to talk about it. Please don't even ask. I have had the most amazing experiences here already, eaten some wonderful food, and enjoyed views that are worth a million dollars. If you want to check it out, please use the link above.

I have not yet decided what to do about the blog. Do I keep it up and just post life pictures outside of the resort, weekend trips to the Grand Canyon, Zion National park and Las Vegas? Do I wrap it all up and End the blog?
 I will make a decision in the coming weeks, one thing for sure though is that I will not be talking about the resort, besides saying that if you ever are able to, you should come and visit.

 The resort from the bluffs surrounding it.

 And Shots around the property.

 The Amazing Pool
 The Spa (notice how the architecture mimics the bluff behind it)

 And finally one of the skybed lofts with the pool Right off the bed.
Again, thank you all for all your prayers and best wishes. When God closes a window sometimes he opens a patio balcony door with a fireplace....
