KAI Remains the Only Restaurant in Arizona with the Prestigious Distinction, Aji Spa Received its Fifth Award.

PHOENIX, Feb. 12, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Forbes Travel Guide, the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas, announced today its 2024 Star Awards. Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass earned the 2024 Travel Guide Five-Star award for KAI, Aji Spa, and the resort and are showcased with other honorees on ForbesTravelGuide.com.

"This award showcases our hotel as much more than just a place to stay; it's truly an immersive experience," said Bunty Ahmed, general manager of Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass.

KAI has maintained the Five-Star accolade for 16 years and is still the only restaurant in Arizona with this distinction. Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass has received the 2024 Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Rating for its luxury hotel, and this is the fifth time Aji Spa has been bestowed the prestigious award. Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass remains the only resort in Arizona to boast both a Five-Star restaurant and spa in addition to its Recommended Rating.

"This award showcases our hotel as much more than just a place to stay; it's truly an immersive experience," said Bunty Ahmed, general manager of Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass. "We hope our guests' experiences from their stay, to the spa, to the cuisine they enjoy, not only create a memorable experience, but they walk away with a newfound appreciation of the rich Native American culture that makes up this beautiful state."

Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass is a 500-room resort located in the untouched part of the Sonoran Desert. The resort is built on the Gila River Indian Reservation and incorporates the teachings and techniques of the indigenous people. This resort incorporates various arts and cultures of both the Pima (Akimel O'otham) and Maricopa (Pee Posh) tribes. A unique blend of the both the Pima and Maricopa cultures, the luxury resort offers the quiet serenity created by the tribal elders and native tribes who found haven here.

Offering the world's most authentic Native American spa experience, Aji combines contemporary techniques with the sacred doctrines of the Pima and Maricopa tribes. Named for the Pima word for sanctuary, Aji offers treatments that draw on traditional Native American healing practices and reflect the history and culture of the Gila River Indian Community. The indigenous cultures of both tribes are also showcased throughout the spa in treatments, artwork, architecture, and shared legends. A journey of sacred doctrines, the signature Indigenous Collection was developed by Aji's Cultural Caretakers and enriches an authentic Native American spa experience.

KAI is the only restaurant in Arizona to receive this prestigious honor, continuing to prove itself as one of the finest dining establishments in the world. KAI showcases Arizona-grown produce and raised cattle juxtaposing these with global accents. Chef de Cuisine, Drew Anderson, incorporates the essence of The Akimel O'odham and The Pee Posh Peoples to guide guests through a cultural and gastronomic journey of the southwest. The restaurant rests under the magnificent views of the Komatke Mountain Range and features local artisans through the dining space. Its wine program is run by James Beard Nominee, Darren Greenspon, and features over 3,000 bottles in their extensive wine list. The menu at KAI, which means "seed" in the O'odham language, features items from the Native Seed/SEARCH Foundation, a program dedicated to preserving ancient lines of Native American seeds that would otherwise be extinct. The restaurant pairs contemporary tastes and traditional regional techniques.
