The Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Casino Del Sol took shovel to dirt on July 12 and officially broke ground on an extensive hospitality project, which includes a new 151-room hotel, 90-space RV park, an expansion of the meeting space at Casino Del Sol, and a new event center at its sister property, Casino of the Sun.
Sitting on 2.2 acres adjacent to the existing Casino Del Sol, the new hotel will boast meeting rooms, an arcade, a lounge area and a fitness center. The hotel will have its own pool with a pool deck designed with family in mind, equipped with a fun pool slide and pool bar. Each of the rooms will take advantage of the stunning views of the property and the surrounding Sonoran Desert landscape, designed with a modern touch.
Hotel construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.
