Nestled between the Sierra Estrella and South Mountains, Wildhorse Pass offers spectacular views of the expansive valley, and of the wild horses that have called the area home for over 500 years. The artistic mastery of the Gila River Indian Community enrich the resort, as reflected in the Native American artwork on display in the lobby which helps capture the essence of the Pima and Maricopa heritage.
