A Historic Resort in the Heartof Arizona
The Wigwam offers over a century's worth of experience in providing luxury and comfort to travelers from around the world. Started as a small lodge during the rise of cotton ranching in the early 1900s, The Wigwam first opened its doors as a resort in 1929.
The original lodge still adorns our property with its heritage and southwestern charm, making us one of the most beloved resorts in Phoenix, AZ.

After steady expansions for over 100 years, the resort now features 331 elegant rooms and suites, three championship golf courses (including the Gold & Blue Courses designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr.), nine tennis courts, three swimming pools (one with a 25-feet dual water slide), a fitness center, award-winning restaurants, and 100,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor event spaces.
