Aquarius Casino Resort hosted a special ground-breaking ceremony featuring gold shovels and hardhats to mark the official start of construction for their 3,200 square-foot resort pool, which will be the largest in the tri-state area. The $5 million project is expected to be completed in May. In addition to Aquarius Vice Presidents, attendees included American Casino Entertainment Properties’ Vice President of Casino Operations, Keith Pakish, Chief Operating Officer, Ned Martin, members of the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and Chamber representatives of Laughlin, Bullhead City, Kingman and Lake Havasu Area.
“We are thrilled to have representatives from American Casino Entertainment Properties, the LVCVA and our local Chambers support the start of this new, exciting project,” said Sean Hammond, Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager. “Completing this project will offer our incredible guests another great amenity and adds another jewel in the crown of Aquarius.”
The pool will be located in the southeast corner of the property in place of Aquarius’ former outdoor amphitheater space behind the parking garage. Consisting of tremendous views of the Colorado River and Aquarius’ Riverwalk, the plans for the 34,251 square-foot pool area will offer guests amenities including more than 100 chaise lounges, 11 day beds, 12 cabanas, an outdoor bar with a window for the public to access from the Riverwalk, two hot tubs with special times in the morning and evening for adults and a small grass area for small concerts and recreational activities.
