Salt Lake City (AP) - The developer of an Amanresort - part of a network of exotic getaways for the world's richest people - says it will open near Lake Powell in September.

The resort, tucked into a Redrock Amphitheater near Big Water, Utah, will charge thousands of dollars a night for a room.

It will have a 3-to-1 ratio of staff for a limited number of guests.

The low-profile resort, which blends into the landscape, will have 34 rooms.

Developer Homi Vazifdar was a perfectionist who says he changed architects, designs and project supervisors multiple times. He even had walls built and demolished because he didn't like their color and texture.

Vazifdar is managing director of Larkspur, Calif.-based Canyon Equity Llc. The firm's partners built North America's only other Amanresort, at Jackson Hole, Wyo.
