It’s not on the Strip, nor even in Nevada, but an under construction restaurant will immediately become part of the travel agenda for large numbers of Las Vegas visitors when it debuts early next year.
Sa'Nya-Wa' Restaurant is planned to be the only full-service dining option on the west rim of the Grand Canyon. Featuring incredible panoramic views, it joins the Grand Canyon Skywalk "4,000 ft. above the riverbed" and is already promising "a dining experience like no other." For many Las Vegas tourists, combining a visit to the Strip and the Grand Canyon has become an essential trip combination.
Currently hiring for all positions, Sa'Nya-Wa' is advising potential staff they will begin training in January, with an eye toward a February debut.
The horseshoe-shaped, Skywalk attraction opened in Peach Springs, Arizona, in 2007 and can handle up to 120 guests at a time, letting them view the canyon floor through a 70-foot long glass walkway.
The attraction is owned and operated by the local Hualapai Indian tribe and restaurant staff will be required to cultivate a "knowledge of Hualapai tourism offerings, Hualapai history and culture" to share with their customers.
A menu, opening hours or details of pricing, have yet to be revealed.
