The Mohegan INSPIRE Entertainment Resort in Incheon, South Korea, is gearing up for the grand opening of its casino. After facing numerous obstacles, the foreigner-only casino has finally received a five-star hotel rating, paving the way for it to launch its casino operations.
In order to achieve this prestigious rating, the resort had to undergo a meticulous assessment and meet the strict requirements set by the Korea Tourism Association. Mohegan revealed that the rating was granted after a rigorous assessment that adhered to the Korean Hotel Rating System. The conditions for obtaining the rating included maintaining the highest standards of facility quality, hygiene, and service.
With the five-star rating secured, the resort is now preparing to open its casino and commence operations. While the majority of the resort’s amenities were made available to the public on November 30, 2023, the opening of the casino operations was postponed. The resort boasts three hotel towers, MICE facilities, a wide array of luxury restaurants, an entertainment street with various amenities, and an impressive indoor water park. Additional restaurants are scheduled to open soon, and all other facilities planned for the first phase of development are expected to be operational by mid-2024.
Although the exact opening date for the casino is still unknown, Mohegan is aiming to have it up and running in time for the Chinese New Year festivity in February. Chen Si, the President of Mohegan INSPIRE, expressed his delight at the official five-star rating, attributing it to the hard work of the team across all areas of the facility, hospitality, and operations management. Ray Pineault, the CEO of Mohegan, emphasized that the five-star rating is a testament to the resort’s unwavering commitment to providing world-class experiences and upholding the highest industry standards.
The successful attainment of the five-star rating has solidified Mohegan’s position as a leader in global entertainment and hospitality, setting the stage for the grand opening of its casino at the INSPIRE Entertainment Resort.
