Pala Opens New Tourmaline Pools and Renovated Hotel Parking Garage
Continuing its expansion and renovation, Pala Casino Spa & Resort recently opened its new Tourmaline Pools and its renovated hotel parking garage. The new garage adds 420 new parking spaces giving Pala 3,700 convenient parking spaces just steps away from the action. Pala’s new adults-only Tourmaline Pools offer guests the opportunity to enjoy 14 luxurious cabanas, five pools, two expansive hot tubs, a new poolside bar, poolside restaurant and a variety of outdoor lounge spaces complete with fireplaces for evening cocktails. The pools are open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, but will close at 5 p.m. on days that outdoor concerts are held at the Starlight Theater. “The opening of our new Tourmaline Pools along with the opening of our expanded parking facility mark the completion of two major elements in the first phase of our renovation and expansion. The new swimming pools also provide our guests a complete outdoor resort,” said Pala Chief Executive Officer Bill Bembenek. The cabanas may be reserved for a full day or a half-day. They include sofas, color televisions, free wi-fi and food and drink service from the Poolside Café & Bar. The five pools are heated to allow guests to enjoy the water year around. The pools also offer in-water seating spaces around the perimeters and several beach-entry depth shelves. Several pools have water features and fountains and niches for rentable daybeds. Pala has taken care to offer some full-sun poolside lounge space, partial-sun trellis-covered space or fully sun-shaded cabana space to accommodate every guest’s preference. The Poolside Café & Bar offers an extensive menu for breakfast (served all day), lunch or dinner and a wide variety of beers, cocktails and wines. To utilize the new adults-only Tourmaline Pools, guests must be minimum-age 21.
