Connecticut's Mohegan Sun has announced plans for a $50 million renovation project for its 1,200-room hotel, better known as the Sky Tower.
The two-year upgrade will coincide with construction on the resort's new 400-room Earth Tower, which is set to open this upcoming fall.
The extensive project will include a multi-million dollar revamp and rebranding of the Sky Tower's existing spa as well as a new Mandara Spa set to open in the Earth Tower. Other new additions include a Victoria's Secret at The Shops at Mohegan Sun, a trio of new dining options and hybrid fusion games.
Within the guestrooms, the refurbishment will include standard and junior suite room renovations featuring new carpeting, wall covers, casework furniture and fabrics.
What's more, an e-tray will replace the traditional mini-bar.
The infusion of new technology will also include an iPad that guests can use to control the television, adjust the thermostat and even order room service. Plus, the updated rooms will boast convenient motion detecting light near the beds.
On top of the guestrooms, the renovation will include updates to the hotel's lobby and hallways.
Once the Sky Tower's current 22,000-square-foot Elemis Spa completes its renovation, it will be rebranded as a Mandara Spa. The spa is slated to be finished next year.
"The Mandara Spa brand has a global footprint, and its debut at Mohegan Sun will not only introduce innovative treatment and product offerings, but will also fuse time-honored Balinese traditions with regional influences for an unparalleled spa experience," said Steiner Leisure Limited President and CEO Leonard Fluxman in a statement.
Meanwhile, the hybrid fusion games will allow live blackjack, roulette and baccarat dealers' hands to be broadcast on individual monitors as well as a big screen for an enhanced casino experience.
In a statement, Mohegan Sun President and General Manager Ray Pineault said the "enhancements are a few examples of our dedication to evolve and steadily exceed the expectations of our valued guests."
