New Hotel Opening December 13th at Yaamava’ Resort and Casino

After three years of construction, the new hotel at Yaamava’ Resort and Casino is finally ready to open to a select few. Yaamava’, previously known as the San Manuel Casino, will host its grand opening ceremony on December 13th. 

The $760 million expansion also included renovations to the casino floor that Yaamava’ unveiled this past summer. The hotel and resort guests have already started to enjoy the newly expanded two-floor gaming room that added three bars, the Serrano Vista Café, over 1,600 slot machines, high-limit gaming rooms, and three retail shops.

Yaamava’ is hosting a job fair this Friday to fill new positions in preparation for the grand opening. Applicants are also encouraged to bring a gift of at least $10 in value as part of the toy drive happening at the job fair. The job fair and toy drive event will be held at the Ontario Mills shopping mall from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Featured Amenities 

The newly renovated hotel at the Yaamava’ Resort and Casino is part of an expansion that aims to make Yaamava’ the one-stop destination in southern California. A total of 432 rooms, included 127 suites, will be available to guests in the 17-story building. 

Yaamava’ Resort and Casino also added a new pool deck with a restaurant as part of the new construction. In addition, personal lounges and private cabanas will be available in the pool area. According to a spokesperson for the resort, the pool is scheduled to open in the spring of 2022. Guests can also access an onsite spa. 

The Yaamava’ Resort and Casino offers a virtual tour for guests who want to look before they book. The tour allows potential visitors to see the casino floor as well as different room types at the hotel.


Other renovations include moving the Pines Modern Steakhouse from the 2nd floor to the 1st. The steakhouse will also feature a revamped menu focusing on seafood and, of course, steak. In addition, guests will be able to enjoy high-end dining onsite. 

Yaamava’ Resort and Casino has more renovations planned for next year. In addition to the pool area opening in the spring, officials also plan to finish construction on a 2,800 seat entertainment center in 2022.
