“Kia Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I took my wife to Kia Restaurant at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa in Chandler, AZ for her birthday. This restaurant is truly one of the finest restaurants we've ever dined at from Hawaii eastward through Europe as well as South America. The food was elegantly prepared, the ambience was all one could have hoped for, admiring the sun setting behind the mountains was scintillating and, above all, the service was impeccable. Our primary server was Jeremy Stulak whose knowledge of the Pima Indians, natives of the area, was most interesting to hear. As we departed Kia our auto was waiting curbside and inside were chocolates for each of us, bottles of cool mineral water and a lovely, hand-written thank you note from Jeremy on a lovely notecard featuring an amazing water-based painting done by the gifted artist Mike Medicine Horse Zillioux.

Kia was an experience we'll never forget.

We've just finished a very nice weekend with beautiful desert scenery, a very nice spa experience, delightful service and perfect weather. You won't be disappointed if relaxation is your aim. Be sure to visit the spa. A helpful experienced staff is waiting there to pamper and spoil. Beautiful pools all over the property.

I spent 3 nights here for work and it was better than I thought it would be. The rooms were clean and not noisy. The only issue I had was how far my room was from the elevator. It seemed to take forever to get to my room. I would stay here again.

The Sheraton Wild Horse Pass is a beautiful property in the Arizona Desert. It deserves to be a pricey hotel. However, everything is EXTRA!. $20 a day to use the fitness center. There are two bottles of Nestle Pure Life Water (which Holiday Inn and Hampton give free) that they charge a buck for, and I also got a $1 charge for using household equipment (the iron and ironing board). Also whoever designed the floor plan of the hotel was on drugs. The hotel is divided into 2 sections. If you are on the bottom floor of one section and want to get to the bottom floor of the other section, you have to go to the third floor, then take an elevator back to the first floor. As a side note, my room had a leaky bathtub and the bathroom floor was wet for most of my stay. I recommend that you stay at the Wild Horse Casino, better price, better food.

Room Tip: Stay on the third floor.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for your feedback and are sorry that you had points of frustration after your visit. The resort services charge offerings are on par with and our charge is less than most of the Phoenix/Scottsdale area resorts. In the past, these items were charged separately per use. We have now bundled them into a flat-fee package for the convenience of our guests, in response to complaints of encountering a variety of small charges for each of these items. This bundle provides a savings of more than $13 - $38 a day, if purchased separately.
We understand, that value is in the eye of the beholder. We are sorry that you felt over-charged.

Sincerely,
Director of Public Relations

My partner was attending a conference at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa near Phoenix recently, and I had the good fortune to go along and enjoy the Arizona sunshine. This place is absolutely awesome, from the architecture that blends in perfectly with its surroundings, to its stunning desert landscaping and first-rate service. It's a short distance south of Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, surrounded by incredible desert.

We had a first-floor room with a patio perfect for relaxing in the morning and evening, listening to the desert birds. The incredible pool - complete with bar/cafe - was nearby, huge and well-stocked with towels and attendants ready to help with any request.

The resort included several dining options, including the 5-star Kai restaurant. We didn't have a chance to dine there, but reviews are outstanding. Everything we did have, from room service to the delicious "desert quiche" from the Starbucks in the lobby, was perfect.

The room was spacious, including the bathroom with a soaking tub and roomy glass shower. And, I actually spent my first ever "spa day" at the resort's Aji Spa. I have to say, I get it. The treatments are all based on Native American elements and amazingly relaxing!

The resort also includes an (apparently) outstanding golf course (I don't play) and an 2.5 mile interpretive desert trail that's not to be missed. There's also a casino nearby (we didn't make it to the casino) and a Premiere outlet mall very close by (which we did manage to hit).

My only complaint would be the daily charge for wi-fi. These days, this is almost a requirement for hotels.

Overall, the place was fantastic and I would highly recommend it for any visit to the Phoenix area.

Dear Guest,

Skek Thash (“Good Day” in Pima)! Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your recent stay with us at the Sheraton Wild Horse Resort and Spa! We are located on the Gila River Indian Community and we take great pride in infusing the history and culture of the Community into the Resort’s design, architecture, cuisine, and accommodations.

We are delighted to hear you were able to enjoy the Arizona sunshine (we are lucky to enjoy this 300 days out of the year) both on your patio and at our poolside bar and grill, Hanyo, which means “oasis.” Yes, we have amazing views of the Komatke Mountains to the west, where you can witness many a spectacular sunset! The desert is also home to herds of wild horses and desert foliage, such as shegoi (often referred to as “the Mother of all plants”) which is an ingredient used in some of the spa treatments you may have enjoyed during your Aji (“sanctuary”) experience.

Should you find yourself back here to visit us, make certain you visit KAI (“seed”) to learn more about the Community’s stories, legends, and to taste some of our locally-grown ingredients presented in a 5- Star fashion.

We also thank you for your understanding with respect to the daily charge for wi-fi; this is now a standard charge for our resort guests and we wish to keep you connected, whether you are here for business or leisure.

Again, we value and appreciate your feeback. We wish you well on your Journey and hope to see you again very soon.

Mova Sa’pe (Thank you)!

Needing to play in a charity golf tournament the following day, I stayed just one night here at the Sheraton. The staff was great and the room was large and comfortable.

By far - the best part of the visit was dinner at Ko'Sin. A simple chicken dinner was just outstanding! This, along with great service and a very nice wine list - made for a wonderful dinner. HIGHLY recommend it

Room Tip: The resort is very spread out. Try for a room close to the main building.

Whether you are there with your family or for a conference this property has it all. Staff is friendly, facilities are clean and updated and prices are reasonable for a resort like it is. The resort is spread out so if you aren't keen on alot of walking ask for a room close to the main lobby where everything is. If you don't mind the walk the golf course rooms have amazing views with private balconies.
