Thank you for your very nice comments. I hope that you and your family will continue to enjoy Kah-Nee-Ta for years to come. I agree the TeePee's are a lot of fun.
we had stumbled across Kah-Nee-Ta some twenty years ago and were curious to see how it might have changed over the decades. To our relief and thanks to its remoteness it still is the place to opt out of the rat race and just marvel at the beauty and peacefulness of the landscape.
The hotel perfectly blends in to the semi desert and if there is not just a convention taking place it might feel as if you were all by yourself. We loved the sincere friendliness of the all aboriginal staff, the place's casual atmosphere and not to forget the tasty native Indian goodies such as their fry bread and huckleberries. Simply delightful!
Kah-Nee-Ta is all about recharging your batteries, immerse yourself in the healing waters of the village pool, discover wild flowers along the trails and shut off your i-phone for a while. It works wonders for body and soul, absolutely no side effects.
PLEASE TREAD LIGHTLY SO THE INSPIRING BEAUTY OF THIS RESERVATION CAN BE KEPT FOR MANY MORE YEARS TO COME!
What a wonderful review, thank you for taking the time to post it. We truly do have a wonderful place here and we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and everyone on TripAdvisor. We hope you "stumble" your way back here soon.
The lodge and rooms are very dated. The carpet was dirty, and there were broken chairs at the pool. The staff at the bar was not very friendly, but the views were breathtaking and the quietness out on your private balcony somewhat makes up for the other.
My girlfriend and i decided to getaway for a night close to home. Kah Nee Ta was more than I expected. Rooms were newly remodeled and private with great views overlooking the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. Good food, we also received great customer service from everyone we came into contact with. If you want to get away for a weekend and get some great hiking, swimming, golf or just soak up the beauty of the surrounding area. They also have the casino, but not my thing. I give it 4 stars just because the pool at the hotel was down for maintenance. They maintain their pools very well so it needs to be done sometime. Besides they had the Olympic size pool open with the slides( so much Fun). Again that pool was extremely clean! Spring and Fall are probably the best time to go.
Despite being run down at the corners, it remains easy to appreciate the magnificence of this resort's c1972 architecture. It sits beautifully in a spectacular, high-desert setting that makes the trek from urban places truly rewarding. Guests unfamiliar with native culture will be disappointed when discovering the concept of 'Indian Time' ... as their gratifcation is delayed. Front of house staff are better trained than others, but even they will simply smile as your requests go unfulfilled by housekeeping and others. Gift shop workers did not know of the museum-quality works by Lillian Pitt they had available: it is largely up to you to discover the place's tranquility and the for the adventurous to take part in offered activities. Meet Wyatt, the easy-going young man who will be quite attentive when guiding your horseback ride to the top of a nearby bluff. (Wear a hat you can tie down!) The kitchen is able, the menu gratifyingly unique, but the waitstaff is uneven in its abilities. The lodge pool opens this week; and depending on the clientele, conveys the aura of an aviary. The village pool is massive enough to accomodate boisterous crowds. There is sufficient infrastructure to make this a destination resort, but managment will need to bear down to address the needs of sophisticated, leisure-time consumers. You will remember time spent here; but the operation is not run by the Disney corporation ... they could never fake the beauty of this place.
We stated at the lodge and the pool, hot tube, jacuzzi were all closed for maintance. Why did they have to close them all at the same time? The noice from the machinery used to fix the pool was extremely loud. The sauna was the only thing we could use. We were sent to the other pool that is open to the public and were charged $2.00 for a towel even though we were staying at the lodge. There was no longer a buffet. There was no longer a casino there. The prices have gone up in price since the last time my husband and I stayed there.
