  • After a transformative $760 million renovation and expansion, Yaamava’ Resort + Casino introduces a modernized desert destination envisioned to cater to guests from all walks of life.
  • The centerpiece of the expansion is a new 17-story hotel tower that will reinforce the new brand, Yaamava’, which means “spring”, symbolizing a time for growth and rebirth.
  • The new resort features 432 rooms, a swimming pool terrace, two additional gaming floors, restaurants, luxury retail, a 3,000-person entertainment venue and a rooftop bar and lounge with panoramic views of the San Bernardino mountains.
  • With the site being located against a fault line, the design team, led by Penta and WATG, collaborated with engineers to strategically site plan the expansion without compromising the guest experience.
