Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino recently completed an expansion of the California casino-resort that added an 11-story hotel-tower, spa and salon, indoor-outdoor pool and a restaurant.

Located within minutes from Yosemite National Park, the hotel tower offers 214 rooms and suites, according to a news release from project architects Thalden Boyd Emery Architects.

“This development is more than just a building; it represents to the Picayune Rancheria the future of their children and their children’s children,” said Barry Thalden, partner in Thalden Boyd Emery Architects.

Directly located under the hotel tower is a new full-service European Spa and fitness center complete with an indoor/outdoor year-round pool that features a swim-up pool side bar. A new five-level parking garage provides 680 additional parking spaces. Designed exclusively to maximize customer experience, a new Italian restaurant and lounge called “Nativo” completes the variety of dining and lounge options, including seven restaurants and five bars. The resort also offers a new, expanded gaming floor with 46 table games and 1,800 slot machines.
