Aji Spa


Aji, meaning "Sanctuary" in the Pima language is appropriately named after the nearby Aji Mountain located on the Gila River Indian Community where women and children would go in times of war. Offering the only authentic Native American spa menu in existence, the Indigenous Collection features treatments and activities designed and practiced by Aji's Pima and Maricopa Cultural Caretakers. The ancient Pima and Maricopa cultures are also showcased throughout our spa in design elements, artwork, architecture and shared legends.

A stunning marble-floored lobby greets you at the 17,500-square-foot spa. Our 17 treatment rooms—some featuring pool or garden views—range from couples' rooms to a Vichy shower or steam capsule room. Guests can also take advantage of a full-service salon, a traditional Native American roundhouse for meditation, and a watsu pool. An adults-only outdoor lagoon-style pool boasts views of the Sierra Estrella Mountain Range and is surrounded by sun loungers.

Revive before or after your treatment with delicious smoothies, cocktails, wines, or light snacks at Aji Café—or have your healthful treat delivered to you poolside. A retail shop lets you take home our pampering products, yoga wear, and more.
