Viejas Casino & Resort completed its seven-year renovation and expansion. Since initiating the project in 2011, the destination has constructed three hotel towers, redesigned the entire property and launched a new and extensive center bar and high limit gaming area. The project completion follows closely behind the opening of Viejas Casino & Resort’s recently developed adult-only destination, Willows Hotel & Spa.
The new 1,900-square-foot, 360-degree center bar includes 50 seats with gaming machines at each seat, 18 65-inch televisions wrapping around the entire bar and caters to both small and large groups. The center bar has its own 24-hour sports bar-style food menu. Center bar’s design incorporates various architectural elements including tile, stone, geometric shapes, and bright colors with the intention to make a bold statement as the new centerpiece of the Viejas property.
The 15,415-square-foot high limit gaming area includes more than 80 new slots and poker machines, and eight exclusive High Limit Tables games.
The third and most recently constructed hotel tower is home to Willows Hotel & Spa, which opened in February 2018. The adult-only hotel offers guests a serene, architecturally-stunning escape that pulls the surrounding scenic mountainscapes into the property. Willows Hotel & Spa has 159 VIP suites, luxury spa facilities, a fitness center, signature restaurants, including Locale Kitchen & Lounge, Ginger Noodle Bar and Daily Roast as well as an expanded gaming space.
The first two hotel towers opened in 2013 and 2015 and make up Viejas Hotel, the property’s family-friendly destination that features 203 luxury rooms and 34 VIP suites. In addition, Viejas Hotel includes a pool and lounge area, two modern fitness centers and two business centers.
Overall, the property boasts 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space. The nearly 11,000-square-foot Oak Ballroom can accommodate 1,200 people and features adjoining prefunction space and an outdoor terrace. The Park at Viejas is an open-air green space that can accommodate larger functions, such as concerts and outdoor receptions.
