Wild Horse Pass


Several years ago I attended a one-day conference at a resort in the far south reaches of Phoenix and I was so taken with the beautiful buildings and landscape that I swore I'd go back for photos.  It took me a few years but I finally made it.

The Sheraton Grand Wild Horse Pass Resort is a premier, Native American owned resort located on Native American land just south of Phoenix.


















The part of the resort that I saw years ago was the convention center and I thoroughly enjoyed the architecture, decor and the outdoor facilities around the center.


Just outside of the convention facility is a vast area of conversation places suited for outdoor events, evening cocktail parties or just a place to take a break and relax.


The entire resort was designed to be an authentic representation of the Gila Indian Community's heritage and culture.  The architecture, design and art is all working together to represent the Pima Indian culture.

Tomorrow I'll have a few more photos of the landscaping around this facility and later in the week, I'll show you the decor inside the convention space and I'll visit the main resort facility and show you the beauty of that spot.

It really couldn't have been designed in a more perfect way to fit into the Arizona landscape Sharon, can't wait to see the gardens.. I wonder if they'll be as I've already fixed them in my imagination��

Your photos of this outstanding place makes me yearn for New Mexico! Terrific name for the centre and am always so happy to see commercial success with Native American enterprises.
