The Grill is a 65-seat dining room open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The redwood-panelled walls and ceiling, specially-commissioned artwork, a wood-burning fireplace and magnificent views of the mountains lend a mood of stylish comfort. The restaurant offers banquette seating as well as chairs of rawhide and rattan, while tables are of black terrazzo. Slate floors are warmed with rugs. The Grill specialises in local, sustainable ranch meats, fresh fish and seasonal farm to table produce. Dinners and receptions can be arranged in the private dining room, and guests can also enjoy in-suite dining. Picnic lunches can be prepared with advance notice. The Bar is defined by rugged sandstone columns, half-a-dozen wrought-iron bar stools and intimate, window-side pairings of tables and chairs. In the summer, drinks can be taken out onto the terrace.
From Amangani’s entrance, 20 steps sweep dramatically down to the Lounge which features a soaring redwood ceiling, a two-storey window wall, two wood-burning fireplaces and comfortable seating. This is the ideal venue for casual afternoon and evening dining.
Located next to the Lounge, the Library makes extensive use of glass and redwood and offers beautiful mountain views. A fine collection of coffee table books cover subjects as varied as the region’s flora and fauna, Native American culture, Western art and the area’s two national parks. A selection of novels, magazines, CDs, DVDs and games is also available. From the Library, glass doors lead to the central terrace.
