Twin Arrows Casino

Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort is Northern Arizonaโ€™s premier casino resort destination, having been named โ€œBest Casino Resort Destination of 2013โ€ by the readers of Experience Arizona Magazine. Twin Arrows is tucked away under the majestic San Francisco Peaks located just east of Flagstaff.

Twin Arrows provides the very latest in gaming, often debuting new slot machines before they hit other casinos. Along with excellent gaming, Twin Arrows is also known for the lavish resort amenities, including luxury guest rooms (available in three configurations), gourmet dining, culturally infused casual dining, a fitness center, heated indoor pool, and more than 11,000 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space.

Navajo Blue Travel Plaza

Welcome to the Twin Arrows’ Navajo Blue Travel Plaza, the Navajo Nation Gaming Enterpriseโ€™s (Navajo Gaming) newest business venture. The travel plaza โ€“ named Navajo Blue โ€“is much more than the new Southwest gateway to the Navajo Nation. Navajo Blue creates a new opportunity for guests to refuel, recharge, enjoy freshly prepared frybread and Navajo tortillas with their favorite toppings, and experience authentic Navajo architecture and culture of the Navajo Nation. Most importantly for Navajo Gaming, it is a jobs creator, it employed nearly 200 people from five different contractors during the construction phase and will employ 47 full-time team members moving forward.

โ€œWeโ€™re eager to introduce the Navajo Blue Travel Plaza to travelers along I-40 as an introduction to the rich culture of the Navajo People,โ€ said Navajo Gaming Interim CEO Brian Parrish. โ€œIn addition to creating valuable jobs, Navajo Blue will allow guests of the Nation to enjoy an all-new dining and retail experience that canโ€™t be found anywhere else along the I-40 corridor. This includes a fire pit to slow-roast premium-grade Navajo beef that is prepared a number of different ways to suit your unique tastes and preferences.โ€

Navajo Blue will service all vehicles with an emphasis on semi-trailer trucks. The plaza features premium restrooms like you would find in a Four Diamond Resort, showers and laundry services for truck drivers, a wide variety of food and beverage selections with an emphasis on authentic, all-natural options, a premium coffee bar and fresh-baked pastries, fudge, and other dessert items to treat yourself during your travels.
