    Great Wolf Lodge, Manteca will pen on June 29th 2021

    Like a slumbering giant, the Great Wolf Lodge water park resort in Manteca is just waiting for its moment to spring to life.

    The massive hotel, indoor water park and family entertainment complex just off Highway 120 is still about a month out from its grand opening after enduring almost a full year of pandemic delays. On Tuesday, local media, including The Bee, got a first look inside the completed development, which is expected to become a regional tourism draw across Northern California and beyond.




    The resort’s six-story hotel, 95,000-square-foot indoor water park and 45,000-square-foot family entertainment center have been completed, but sitting vacant, since last summer when construction finished.

    The last time local media toured the still-under-construction building at the start of March 2020, Great Wolf Resort (the parent company of the North American indoor water park resort chain) management was so confident in its progress it announced the Manteca site would open a full month earlier than planned, in July 2020. But then the pandemic worsened and all plans were put on hold for a year.

    There is no news as yet for the opening of the Holiday Inn which sits within the Grand Ho Tram Strip Resort but recent images show that the hoarding is still up around the construction site and the pool is looking close to completion but not finished.

    In Russia and the government for the Far Eastern province of Primorsky Krai has reportedly announced that the first phase of the coming Shambala Casino is scheduled to open later ‘this summer’ following over two years of work.

    According to a Tuesday report from G3Newswire, this venue for the Primorye Integrated Entertainment Resort zone is the brainchild of local operator Shambala CJSC and is now expected to debut its $48.8 million initial stage complete with a 55,970 sq ft casino before the end of September.
    This image is included in the article but bears no resemblance to the Shambala from what I can see, does anyone know what this building is? It is certainly a resort hotel but I cannot place it.

    The construction of a multi-million-pound water park resort in Oxfordshire will start next year. American company Great Wolf Resorts (GWR) is to shortly begin the search for a construction contractor to undertake the development of Great Wolf Lodge in Chesterton, near Bicester.
    The development will bring a £200 million investment into the local area – creating 1,000 jobs during construction and around 600 jobs to operate the resort.

    Saudi Arabia’s Emaar The Economic City (Emaar EC) has started planning and design work for the Rixos Emerald Shores resort looking out to the Red Sea coast.

    The construction firm has signed a framework cooperation agreement with the Tourism Development Fund, FTG Development Company, Albilad Investment Company, and Ekofine Holding BV to establish a SAR1.8 billion (aprox. US$480 million) closed and private investment fund for the project. The fund will be used to develop and operate the five-star resort, as well as its luxury ‘underwater villas’. It’s also on track to have a water park, beach areas, kids clubs, gyms and more than 10 F&B outlets.
    Slated for a 2023 opening, the 275,000sq m resort will be one of the largest tourism developments within the ambitious King Abdullah Economic City. The resort will include 500 keys, as well as 35 hotel villas with views of the Red Sea coast.

    The desert megacity was announced in 2005 by the late King Abdullah. Masterplanned by Emaar EC, the city is an hour’s drive from Jeddah and is equal in size roughly to Washington, DC. Once complete, it will have a population equal to that of Brussels at about two million, and have a port, residential areas, and of course, hotels.

    After having just finished a decade of unparalleled growth, The Dollywood Company is embarking on an ambitious investment strategy that will see the Smoky Mountain vacation destination invest more than half-a-billion dollars over the next 10 years across its properties. Announced today, one of the first projects in the campaign is the 302-room Dollywood’s HeartSong Lodge & Resort.

    The new HeartSong Lodge, located adjacent to the much-heralded Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa, serves as the next element in the company’s thriving lodging business.


    This reimagined Smoky Mountain lodge features four-story, lantern-inspired windows in the resort’s welcoming atrium, epic indoor and outdoor pools that provide guests a refreshing escape in all seasons, and a picture-perfect outdoor cove with family gathering spaces, communal fire pit and screened-in porch. With 26,000 sq. ft. of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting space, the property can accommodate gatherings for several hundred guests. From the two-story HeartSong Event Center to spacious outdoor meeting spaces and event lawn, the resort offers numerous options to provide a unique and inspiring setting for groups.
    Dollywood’s HeartSong Lodge & Resort is set to open to guests in 2023.

    This article describes how difficult the conditions for building in this location were during the construction. Some interesting bits in here about the way the construction was done.

    It also answers the question about the resorts being under different brands.

    The first phase of the Jiuzhaigou project includes three plots of Hilton Hotel, Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Jiuzhaigou Cultural Town, with a total of 136 single buildings, of which 89 single buildings are distributed on the slope with a drop of nearly 100 meters. The stepped construction is difficult. great.


    The biggest problem in stepped construction is the outdoor pipe network construction. The 89 individual buildings of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel are distributed on 7 steps. Each row has more than 10 guest rooms. The upper and lower rows of guest rooms are divided by stone retaining walls. The distance between the main exterior wall of the guest room building and the retaining wall is only about 5 meters.

    I can't tell quite when the pictures below were taken but it does look like there are a lot of works going on with the site at the moment and from some of the images on Instagram I think some of the residences have occupants though I can't be sure. The official site still says "coming soon" with no opening date so it seems a bit odd!

    The Grand Ho Tram Strip looks like it's about to get some company along the shore. A waterpark is due to be built and the Ixora is due to be built very soon.

    Google Maps was updated back in March and I know a lot of work has gone on since then as we can see in the recent street level images but I thought these were interesting because:
    1. They show actually how close the islands are to each other, even in the "private" Swedish homes they are extremely close to the opposite Island.
    2. The lack of the floating seahorse villas, I was surprised there are so few in the water already - I don't know if they are expecting more but I feel like these were really sold in the marketing and there are really not many of them!
    3. How much of a building site the rest of the Islands are behind the hotels that are coming to completion. There is still a lot of industrial looking gear around the site.

    Another new opening date for Manteca's Great Wolf Lodge



    After almost a year of delays due to the pandemic, Manteca’s new water park resort Great Wolf Lodge has announced its opening date.

    The massive water park, hotel and family entertainment center off Highway 120 in Manteca will open June 29. Construction on the complex was completed last summer, but Great Wolf Resorts, the parent company of the national chain of indoor water resorts, had not set an opening date because of uncertainties with COVID-19 outbreak and accompanying safety restrictions in the state.
