Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel

HIGHLAND, CA – Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel has announced the grand opening of its luxury resort will take place on Monday, December 13, with a VIP invitation-only celebration for tribal citizens and special guests. Located in Highland, CA, 60 minutes from Los Angeles, the 432-room hotel is the latest addition to the tribe’s casino.  

“As we watched Yaamava’ take shape over these last three years, the San Manuel community recognized we were building something special,” said San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Chairman, Ken Ramirez. “We can’t wait for our valued casino guests and new visitors to experience all that Yaamava’ has to offer.” 

Yaamava’ guests will be able to enjoy the excitement of the casino floor or find serenity on the expansive pool deck where they can relax in their own personal lounger or in one of the seven private cabanas. A full-service spa will offer an array of transformative treatments and products, and expanded dining options and 24-hour in-room dining ensure guests will be able to find something to satisfy their palate. The top floor of the hotel tower features an exclusive lounge with indoor and outdoor areas allowing guests to take in sweeping views of the San Bernardino Mountains while enjoying culinary delights paired with wines, spirits, hand crafted cocktails and mocktails. In spring 2022, a 2,800-seat theatre will join the list of amenities available at Yaamava Resort & Casino.  

 “In my thirty plus years in the hotel industry, I have never been more excited to open a property than I am Yaamava’ Resort & Casino,” said Afsi Bird, VP of Hotel Operations. “With the guidance and support of the tribe, we are building something truly unique that is rooted in exceptional service and dedicated to creating memorable experiences for our guests.” 

To commemorate the milestone, Yaamava’ Resort & Casino will host a public promotion with prizes valued at more than $120,000 on December 13, 2021, between 1 pm and midnight. Kicking off the celebration, one lucky winner will be selected for the grand prize valued at $18,910. Every hour from 2pm until midnight, five new winners will be selected to receive $1,891 in free play. The number 1891 is significant as it represents the year the San Manuel Band of Missions Indians was recognized as a sovereign nation.
