Margaritaville Casino & Restaurant Biloxi announced today it will break ground on a new hotel facility in the Spring, and estimates construction will be completed Spring 2015. The new hotel will feature 250 rooms – 170 deluxe guest rooms and 80 two- and three-bedroom suites. In addition, they will become one of the first resort properties to offer time-share units through a major international partner, which will allow the property to attract a new type of visitor to Biloxi.

"Margaritaville Biloxi will be making a considerable investment in creating a resort destination the likes of which Biloxi has never seen," said Doug Shipley, President & CEO. "The addition of time-shares to our hotel will attract a whole new type of customer; one that's not currently visiting the Biloxi area. It truly is an exciting opportunity for our city."

In addition to the hotel, Margaritaville Casino Biloxi will expand and completely renovate the casino floor, adding meeting space, and a resort-style pool and spa. The property will also create one of the finest buffets on the Gulf Coast, and introduce a new steakhouse that will boast the best dining views of the Biloxi Bay Waterfront.

Along with the renovations and expansions, Margaritaville Biloxi will re-engineer the existing marina to provide more enhanced and secured overnight docking accommodations, as well as developing a one-of-a-kind bay-front resort pool and pool bar with outdoor gaming.

"We want to bring Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville state of mind into a state of being," said Stacey McKay, Vice President of Marketing. "That's what we're building here. A resort that lives up to the brand that is beloved around the world."

Cuningham Group was selected to be the designer and architect of the new project. The McDonnel Group of New Orleans has been selected as the general contractor. Both companies are known for their award winning designs and resort development projects.
