Located across from Dell Diamond on Hwy. 79 in Round Rock, the 350-acre resort will include 975 hotel rooms, five restaurants, and 10,000 square feet for retail and commercial space.
A 200,000-square-foot convention center will be available for conferences, meetings, receptions and other large-scale events. The resort's 223,000-square-foot water park will feature 20 pools and whirlpools; 30 waterslides; and attractions, such as rock walls and cabanas.
“We can’t wait to open our doors and welcome the Texas community to the Kalahari experience this fall,” Kalahari owner Todd Nelson said in a Sept. 15 news release. “We have 1.5 million square feet of space to play and room to roam. It’s been a challenging year, and what better way to get away from the worry and enjoy time having fun together as a family and community.”
Kalahari representatives said the company intends to hire 700 employees by the end of the year, including lifeguards, culinary staff and information technology professionals.
The Round Rock location is the fourth Kalahari resort, with existing properties in Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
