About the hotel
Deluxe Class Modern Hotel. The resort is located in Sonoran Desert on an expanse of rugged Arizona landscape where the ancient vistas, mountains and roaming horses remain untouched. A unique blend of two cultures, the resort offers the quiet serenity created by Native American tribes who found haven here.
All guest rooms feature bath suites with separate tub and shower and are stocked with luxury bath products. Rooms are decorated in earth-base colors. All design elements, including the furniture, were carefully selected to complement the natural desert ambiance.
