Resort Activities - Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass
The Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass was designed to be an authentic representation of the Gila River Indian heritage and culture and offer guests a recreational, educational and inspirational experience never before available in a resort setting. The architecture, design, art and legends of the Akimel O'otham and Pee Posh tribes are celebrated in every detail imaginable, indoors and out.
The resort is located in the Sonoran Desert, on an expanse of Arizona landscape that is unparalleled in this well-developed state. A unique blend of two cultures, the resort offers the quiet serenity that had generated from these tribes many years ago, combined with the hotel expertise of the Sheraton brand, creating a refreshing resort experience.
Arizona's only Native American spa, Aji means "sanctuary" in the Pima language. This world-class retreat offers unique treatments that have been passed down for centuries in the Gila River Indian Community. Relax by the private outdoor pool or indulge in spa cuisine at the Aji Spa Cafe.
Whirlwind Golf Club
Play a round of golf like never before on one of two 18-hole, Troon-managed golf courses with sweeping desert views and perfectly manicured greens and desertscape.

In continuation of our Geo Green initiative, Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass is partnering with Phoenix Fibers to recycle all bed linens, towels, bathrobes and linen napkins that have traditionally been discarded as waste. Phoenix Fibers is a locally-based, closed loop, textile recycler that works hand-in-hand with sister company, Bonded Logic, using recycled textiles to produce Green, LEED certified insulation.
Keeping with our mission to reduce environmental impact through conservation, special linen recycling bins have been placed throughout the housekeeping areas to allow old inventory to easily be discarded for pick-up from Phoenix Fibers.
The Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass goes beyond Green and promotes both Cultural Sustainability and Environmental Responsibility with our GeoGreen initiative. We've won multiple national awards for those efforts including; the TIA Odyssey Award for Sustaining an Indigenous Culture or Community, National Geographic Traveler Magazine's "Stay List," and the AZ Governor's Cultural Preservation Award.
More recently, under the direction of the GeoGreen Team, the Resort has altered internal practices for a more environmental focus. The GeoGreen Team, made up of managers and supervisors of all departments, designed a comprehensive recycling program, which included activities from recycling grease to be used for biofuels, to composting at the equestrian center to trading in the courtesy vehicle for a hybrid.
