Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of spa services and café fare at Aji Spa and Aji Café at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort in Chandler.
Caretakers familiar with traditional Native American practices design and administer the services at Aji, a spa and salon decorated in the style of an ancient Pima and Maricopa retreat. Features pop following a custom makeup application performed with hypoallergenic products that are as gentle on skin as a robe made of whispers ($50+). Pamper exteriors with such salon services as the 50-minute Nohnhovi, which combines a citrus-sugar manicure, a massage, and a hydrating paraffin treatment ($55–$75). Oils and clay rain down on scalps during the 50-minute Kushpo deep-conditioning hair treatment, a highlight of the authentic indigenous collection of services ($65+).
To avoid gnawing on their shoelaces for sustenance, spa-goers can also feast on Aji Café fare, which includes a pulled-pork panini doused in curry-barbecue sauce ($15) and a grilled portobello-mushroom wrap replete with black-bean hummus and oven-roasted peppers ($13).

All spa treatments include complimentary day use of fitness and motion studios, as well as our private indoor and outdoor whirlpools, steam rooms, saunas, spa swimming pool and relaxation lounges.
