Saturday, May 19, 2018, Pala Casino Spa & Resort in Pala opened its new Tourmaline Pools, the first element of its ongoing expansion and renovation.
Pala’s new adults-only, Tourmaline Pools offer guests the opportunity to enjoy 14 luxurious cabanas, five pools, two expansive hot tubs, a new poolside bar, a new poolside restaurant and a variety of outdoor lounge spaces complete with fireplaces for evening cocktails. The pools are open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, but will close at 5 p.m. on the days that outdoor concerts are held at the Starlight Theater.
“The opening of our new Tourmaline Pools along with the opening of our expanded parking facility mark the completion of two major elements in the first phase of our renovation and expansion. The new swimming pools also provide our guests a complete outdoor resort,” said Pala Chief Executive Officer Bill Bembenek.
Ligman's Vancouver light column was used to add a decorative and functional lighting element to the pool. The floodlights atop the column can be individually aimed at different zones of the pool. The column features a yellow dichroic color filter that helps add to the look and offers ambient accent lighting during night hours.
