San Diego's Viejas Casino & Resort Unveils New Luxury Tower Hotel & Spa On February 1

January 30, 2018

San Diego's Viejas Casino & Resort will open its new luxury all-adult hotel and spa this Thursday, February 1. The third phase of Viejas' latest development plans, the newly unveiled tower Willows Hotel & Spa is designed as a resort within a resort, offering a holistic approach to the guest experience with 159 all-suite rooms, a lush new saltwater pool, a luxurious spa & salon, an expansive fitness center, and three new restaurant concepts.

"We're redefining our guest experience, making every choice about accommodating our guests and fostering an unparalleled sense of well-being and tranquility," said Viejas Tribal Chairman Robert J. Welch, Jr. “The level of personalization and detail we are putting into this new build will expand the demographics of our current visitor and have a strong positive impact on the local economy.”

Reinventing the hotel check-in model, Vierja's new luxury tower will feature one-of-a-kind Specialized Stay Packages, which obliterates the standard check in and check out times, and allows guests to arrive at their leisure, and check out later, per day of reservation.

"You will be able to tell us what time is best for you to arrive, and your room will be waiting for you," explains Welch. "And, even better, guests who arrive in the evening can check out in the evening, allowing for them to have access to their room for their entire stay."

Upon arriva to Willows Hotel & Spa, visitors will be greeted with a personalized check in experience that will be tailored to their unique accommodations and describe the array of luxurious built-in features therein. Each suite will feature an ultra-modern contemporary design and come equipped with Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant, which can find information, act as an alarm, play music, and more. A pillow preference program will allow guests to choose from a selection of plush bedding options to ensure a restful night’s slumber and select rooms will feature a Wellness Experience including items such as Vitamin C-infused showers which will add to the guests’ ability to reinvigorate. Each suite feature products from Whish Beauty, whose trendsetting bath and beauty products are naturally sourced, organic, and made in the USA.

Those wishing to relax poolside can enjoy the all-new saltwater pool. From outdoor meditation to poolside massage treatments, the adults-only pool will be complemented by a brand-new spa, which will offer full salon and spa services, while a 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center will allow guests to maintain their exercise regimens uninterrupted during their stay. Spa highlights include a tranquility garden, salt sauna, steam room, and outdoor cabanas where treatments can be provided.

Three new restaurant concepts will also debut, offering fresh, gourmet international food offerings. Locale Kitchen and Lounge is the signature eatery with farm-to-table California inspired cuisine by Executive Chef Antonio Votta, who previously helmed Celebrity Chef Michael Mina's The MINA Test Kitchen. Locale will serve lunch and dinner daily before transitioning into a nighttime hotspot. Ginger Noodle Bar will offer classic and contemporary Asian fusion fare in a comfortable and modern setting, while The Daily Roast will feature popular Starbucks products and serve the grab-and-go needs of guests.

Viejas Casino & Resort is at the heart of the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians’ entrepreneurial achievements and is recognized as one of the most respected and successful Indian gaming resorts in California. Since its beginnings as the Viejas Bingo Room in 1977 the property has undergone several expansions, constantly striving to provide guests more amenities, better services and more reasons to visit.

Reservations for the new tower are now being accepted and can be made by calling Viejas at 800.847.6537. Viejas Casino & Resort is located at 5000 Willows Road in San Diego's Alpine area. For more information, visit
