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.
