Located in the Sonoran Desert on an expanse of rugged Arizona landscape where the ancient vistas, mountains, and roaming wild horses remain untouched, the Wild Horse Pass Resort was designed to be an authentic representation of the Gila River Indian Community's heritage and culture. It's only eleven miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, with the convenience of shopping and endless dining options just minutes away.
Arizona's premier Native American-owned luxury resort, boasts, 36-holes of Troon Golf, the Aji spa, four pools, a 111-foot waterslide, Koli Equestrian Center, AAA Five Diamond dining at the Kai restaurant, and Rawhide, an 1880s Western Town.
"The work accomplished at the Workology Conference is one of the best-kept secrets of the industry", touts Ron Ause, Workamajig's director of marketing. "Workamajig clients learn tons of stuff, meet great people, bringing Workamajig and have Fun-amajig all together!"
