Stay at Wild Horse Pass
At the edge of the desert south of Phoenix is a destination resort unlike any other, where soothing sunsets replace city lights and the sound of traffic gives way to the rustling breezes of mesquite trees. Wild Horse Pass, operated by the Gila River Indian Community, is ready to welcome you to an oasis where modern comfort meets history and culture. With two world-class hotels to choose from, both featuring an abundance of amenities, Wild Horse Pass is the place to stay to relax in the solace of the Sonoran Desert or celebrate yourself with spa days, upscale dining, and outdoor activities.
Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass
From your room’s private balcony, watch the sun rise or set over Arizona’s stunning mountain ranges. The Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass has inspirational views in every direction and easy access to parkland, preserves, and hiking trails that will bring you close to the saguaro cactus and roaming wild horses of the Pima and Maricopa tribal land. A 2.5-mile river encircling the resort provides opportunities to gently kayak or boat through the magnificent landscape as well.
The Sheraton Grand also features recreation and relaxation meant to replenish your body, mind, and spirit. Four on-site pools offer fun for every age, the nearby KOLI Equestrian Center offers lessons and trail rides, and the Whirlwind Golf Club has two 18-hole courses. At the Sheraton’s Aji Spa, treatment therapies are built around authentic Native American healing practices.
Everywhere you go in the 500-room Sheraton Grand presents a glimpse into the culture of the Pima and Maricopa, with design touches and displays that honor the legacy of the Gila River Indian Community. Daily activities led by resort staff are a chance to delve deeper into Native American history.
You can also dine at Kai, the only AAA Five Diamond/Forbes Five Star restaurant in Arizona, which happens to be the resort’s fine dining option. The restaurant specializes in dishes that are made with locally farmed ingredients and provide a modern interpretation of Native American cuisine. Additional dining at the resort includes Ko'Sin for elevated desert-inspired dishes, Hanyo at the River for poolside eats, and the Aji Café for meals at the spa.
