Perched on a 'butte' (a steep hill with a flat top) in the Rocky Mountains, some 7,000 feet above sea level, Amangani is a serene way to start married life - its name aptly means 'peaceful home'.

Deep in the Wyoming wilderness (this is Brokeback Mountain country), the hotel is all-American Aman style, crafted from Oklahoma sandstone and Pacific redwood, decorated with Native American artefacts, cowhide chairs and faux-fur throws.

Floor-to-ceiling windows abound, perfect for soaking up the views of Snake River Valley and the Teton mountains.

This is a honeymoon for all seasons; in winter, ski-bunnies are only a 20-minute transfer from the fresh powder at Jackson Hole.

Once temperatures rise, the Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks are on your doorstep.

Hike the valley and mountain trails, spot bears, wolves, elk, bison and coyotes on a wildlife safari, or enjoy a hot-air balloon ride over the valley. Then unwind in the spa before tucking into bison ribs or local trout in The Grill for a different taste of the wildlife.

WOW FACTOR: After a day of action, you can't beat lazing in Amangani's infinity pool, which overlooks the majestic scenery below.

FLIGHT TIME: 10 hours.
