With much anticipation, Pechanga Resort & Casino celebrates a historical grand opening week. The $300 million spent on the resort expansion would rival any casino in California or Nevada. Thursday, March 8, 2018, Pechanga rolls out the red carpet for Asian Media Day, an exclusive event for many of the Asian media outlets, presenting sneak previews and exclusive tours of the new facilities. This event is certainly a highlight of the festivities during grand opening week.

“We are completely committed to making Pechanga Resort & Casino a better, more luxurious and fun world-class gaming resort destination,” says Lee Torres, general manager at Pechanga.

This occasion celebrates and acknowledges the great impact of the Asian community to the $550 million dollar economic growth and development of Temecula Valley. A new redesign of brand and logo was launched for our ever-growing Asian clientele.

“We take the loyalty from our Asian guests very seriously and with Pechanga’s newly designed logo and branding, it was of utmost importance to bring Pechanga in to present day,” says Bill Anderson, chief marketing officer at Pechanga.

The logo evolved from the youthful lion to the majestic and matured winged lion that we see today at Pechanga. The logo Pi Xiu symbolizes wealth and good fortune. The redesign of the new logo reflects the triumphant six yearsPechanga had established itself as a first-class destination for Asians, local and afar.

Dignitaries and tribal leaders from the Pechanga Band of Luiseño broke ground in December 2015 and completed its first phase, the new East Parking Garage, one year later.

The new resort tower offers modern guest rooms and lavish suites with floor-to-ceiling views of the surrounding south Temecula Mountains, the Journey golf course and the Temecula cityscape. The brand new, luxury two-story spa and resort features 17 therapy rooms, sauna, two hydrotherapy pools, an outdoor pool and cabanas, and a full-service salon for men and women.

The 4.5-acre resort style pool complex, waterslides, and swim-up bar called The Cove will be unveiled this spring along with the new Coveside Grill restaurant, offering a variety of delicious bites served poolside or table-side.

Among the many master chefs at Pechanga, chef Jose Mendoza joins the team and brings a variety of culinary flavors to the new Lobby Bar & Grill.
