$35 million will be spent on the construction of a new luxury hotel above SkyCity Hamilton. For months, developers have been working hard to get their plans approved and now they finally have the go-ahead. Now, the construction date has been set, as work on the new hotel will begin at the end of the 2012.
The hotel is planned to be a 4-star venue, catering to high-roller players at SkyCity Hamilton Casino. The property will house 8 duplex suites, 16 luxury suites and over 100 regular hotel rooms. Amenities will include a swimming pool, gym and sauna. As such, it will be inclusive accommodation for anyone who is visiting New Zealand on a gambling trip.
This seems to be part of Sky City’s plans to attract more high roller gamblers. Over the course of the past few years, the company has placed a great emphasis on VIP gaming, catering to individuals that spend millions of dollars. With luxury rooms and high-class amenities, the new hotel at SkyCity Hamilton most certainly aims to bring in more business from high roller gamblers with lots of money to spend.
