Over a century ago, Swiss settlers found their way to the rural town of Midway, situated on land the Native Americans of the Ute and Shoshone nations discovered years before. With rustic Old-World charm and scenery straight from a storybook, Midway is the kind of place
where fairytales are made possible. The Ameyalli site was an ancestral landmark attraction
frequented by Native Americans. It was deemed sacred thanks in part to natural springs filled with geothermal waters and hot pots known for rich mineral content and healing powers. Because of the numerous hot water springs in Midway that are 90°F or warmer, several resorts popped up during the late 1880s, such as Schneitter’s Hot Pot Resort, predecessor of the present-day Homestead Resort. In the forties and fifties, The Mountain Spa Resort was established and became a gathering place for the community and Hollywood’s elite, focusing on the healing properties of the geothermal pools. This historic area is once again being reborn, this time as the new Ameyalli resort.

Ameyalli is a wellness community set to offer owners and guests the opportunity to reside, rejuvenate and continue this sacred land’s well-being tradition. With 28 natural hot springs and stunning views of the Timpanogos Mountains, the resort combines forward-thinking architecture, holistic health and wellness modalities, and surrounding world-class recreation, such as five championship golf courses and two reservoirs to provide an unparalleled experience. The resort takes its name from the Aztec word for spring or fountain. The reinvented Midway property aims to return water to life, creating a place where guests can reconnect with nature, relax the mind, recalibrate the body, and recharge the soul. The therapeutic qualities of the 104°F natural hot springs water at Ameyalli are not only a treat for the senses but also for the body and mind. With an abundance of geothermal pods (the largest number in Utah), Ameyalli is poised to be a wellness haven for those looking to detox, recharge, heal and plug into nature.

The grand vision for Ameyalli attracted the attention of Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, FRCP, the internationally renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation. As a result, the Chopra Foundation, his nonprofit entity for research on well-being and
humanitarianism, is collaborating on the 50,000-squarefoot Ameyalli Wellbeing Center of Excellence. The center, slated for completion in June 2025, will feature activities and classes centered around Chopra’s Seven Pillars of Wellbeing and address topics such as emotional regulation, sleep, mindfulness, movement, relationships, nutrition and laughter. During the groundbreaking ceremony last summer, Chopra spoke about his collaboration with the new wellness resort. “I am absolutely thrilled about the groundbreaking for Ameyalli — it is a great project that we will support through the Chopra Foundation, sharing our wellness research on longevity and health span. Research that specifically teaches how to enjoy a life where we can experience … a joyful energetic body; loving, compassionate heart; clear mind; and a lightness of being.”

“Together, we are building world-premier resources to improve health, happiness and—the true measure of wellbeing—joy for all.” Deepak Chopra

In addition to emphasizing wellness, the new development offers a mountain-village lifestyle with vacation home opportunities through Ameyalli residences, which are sold fully furnished and decorated. This first phase is considered the residential phase and focuses on 20 standalone homes with 2,750 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and rooftop observation decks. The residential design is strongly influenced by a Swiss mountain style of architecture, and homes can be purchased on a co-ownership basis, with an eighth of a share being the smallest investment. Managing partner Chuck Heath outlined a trifecta of reasons people are drawn to the new resort. “I believe that buyers, investors and visitors are drawn to Ameyalli for three reasons. First of which is the incredible investment potential. At $350,000 per one-eighth interest, the rental potential is truly sound. The second reason being that it has great second-home value. You can get luxury at affordable levels by buying what you need. Ameyalli has aligned with Christie’s International Real Estate in Park City for the real estate component of the Resort Community. You can buy the whole unit if that’s what you need or buy just 6 weeks a year if that fits your situation better,” he said. “And finally, the future well-being component, which includes the healing hot springs, a Deepak Chopra wellness program, and a farm-to-fork healthy restaurant.” The first phase of construction also includes a private clubhouse, where guests can take advantage of a luxury spa, soaking pool, outdoor pool, gym, kids’ center and pickleball courts. Beyond the clubhouse, there are outdoor lounge spaces and fire pits, perfect for evenings spent under the stars, as well as several walking trails winding throughout the property. Cottages and hotel rooms will be constructed as part of phase two, which will kick off this spring. The main attraction for phase two is the construction of the Ameyalli Wellness Center of Excellence. Additionally, phase two will consist of an 80-room luxury hotel and 23 cottage residences with 1,600 square feet of living space and two bedrooms with lock-off options.

“The location of Ameyalli cannot be matched — 10 minutes to Deer Valley, 20 minutes to Sundance, 20 Minutes to Park City, five minutes to fly-fishing, golf, hiking, biking and all the adventure Heber Valley has to offer,” said Heath. “To seal the deal, this locale is 50 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport. There is no other location in this country that can provide this.” Ameyalli stands as a gateway to the exploration of both the inward and outward self. With its sacred history, world-class amenities, and commitment to physical and mental health, the resort is sure to become a beloved destination for all who cherish the alpine lifestyle and consider personal well-being crucial to quality of life.
