Talking Stick Resort
Among the mountains of the Arizona desert, you’ll find Talking Stick Resort. The newly built, 15-storey luxury property is owned and operated by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRP-MIC), a sovereign tribe situated just east of Scottsdale.
The beauty of the desert landscape runs throughout the interior of Talking Stick Resort’s 497 luxurious guestrooms and suites, state-of-the-art spa and multiple fine-dining and casual restaurants and bars.
Home to more than 100,000 sq. ft. of indoor-outdoor function space, spread across 11 rooms, Talking Stick Resort features a 25,000-sq.-ft. ballroom and more than 11,000 sq. ft. of pre-function space. Groups who love to golf will delight in 36 championship-calibre holes at the adjacent (and top-rated) Talking Stick Golf Club’s North and South courses.
Relax at The Spa at Talking Stick, a 13,000-sq.-ft. open-air facility, with floor-to- ceiling windows, many of which can be opened during treatments. Inspired by the SRP-MIC, several of the ingredients used in treatments and services are harvested from the community gardens.
Talking Stick Resort’s signature restaurant, Orange Sky, provides guests with panoramic views of the Camelback and McDowell Mountains and offers an exceptional fine-dining experience.
The resort also features a 240,000-sq.-ft. casino, where guests can try their luck at slots, blackjack or poker or they can explore the resort’s cultural centre. Talking Stick Resort’s art collection showcases historic and contemporary pieces by Native American artists.
A 20-minute drive from Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport and just 10 minutes from Old Town Scottsdale, Talking Stick Resort is a first-rate escape.
