Pechanga Summit was added to Pechanga Resort & Casino as a part of the property’s $285 million resort expansion. The Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians broke ground on the two-year project in December 2015 that will conclude in December 2017. Entertainers, concerts, live sporting events, trade shows, weddings, or any large group will now have a 40,000 square foot area to book. In total, Pechanga now offers 274,500 square feet of indoor/outdoor contemporary meeting and event space, which will significantly enhance the amenities, space and visibility of Pechanga’s event offerings.

  • An indoor pre-function area that wraps around Pechanga Summit on three sides for pre-event socializing, featuring three phone charging bars and three cultural installations.
  • A Green Room (exclusively reserved for speakers and VIP guests/groups)
  • Retractable chandeliers
  • A ceiling catwalk for lighting, sound and event rigging

In these last two years, Pechanga more than doubled the size of its resort amenities and added more than 3,500 jobs to the region. The project added a new, AAA Four Diamond, 568-room and suite hotel wing; a stand-alone luxury two-story spa and salon with 17 treatment rooms, a fitness center and hydrotherapy pool terrace; a 4 ½-acre resort-style pool complex with eight pool areas; two new restaurants; and an additional 67,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor event space.
