Alone at last!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ditched their brood of six for a 27-hour escape at  the luxe Amangiri resort in Lake Powell, Utah on March 26 and March 27.

"Brad said he was enjoying a little mommy and daddy time," a source tells the new Us Weekly of Pitt, 47, who jetted from New Orleans (where he's been filming Cogan's Trade) to meet Jolie, 35.

Checking in at 2 p.m., they enjoyed a late dinner and flew their private plane over Lake Powell the next morning. Suites at the resort -- which features stunning desert views, full-service spa, yoga and "floatation" pavilions plus a fitness center and beauty salon -- go for $3,300 per night

Says the source, "They liked the downtime."

One weekend before, Jolie touched down in New Orleans with their six kids -- Maddox, 9, Zahara, 6, Pax, 7, Shiloh, 4, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 2, -- for a lowkey visit with Pitt near his Big Easy film set.

(The couple have explained in the past that they never schedule film projects concurrently, in order to ensure that the kids are looked after.)

"Brad and Angie have a truly loving, caring, romantic relationship," another pal recently told Us Weekly. "They try to make it possible for to be together as much as possible, no matter how tight their schedules are. That's what makes them so successful in love."
