Kalahari Resorts and Conventions reveals a never-before-seen inside look at its newest resort in Round Rock, Texas, with a 360-degree video tour of America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark and resort, opening Nov. 12. The video offers a behind-the-scenes view of the property, including a guided tour of construction progress updates.
“We can’t wait to open our doors and welcome the Texas community to the Kalahari experience this fall,” said Kalahari owner Todd Nelson. “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 Resorts also introduces Tim Arnold as resort general manager and Gerson Valasquez as assistant general manager of Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, Round Rock.
As general manager, Tim Arnold will lead day-to-day operations, provide guidance to the management team and serve as the liaison to the regional Round Rock community. Tim brings more than 20 years of hospitality experience with a successful career in luxury resorts and regional multiunit, cutting-edge restaurant and residential properties. Notably, he has held executive leadership roles at Waldorf Astoria, Canyon Ranch, Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort, and Interstate Hotels and Resorts.
In his role as assistant general manager, Gerson Valasquez leverages 20 years of experience leading high-volume catering and banquet divisions, managing operations of fine-dining restaurants, and supporting the management of rooms, food and beverage and maintenance departments at properties in Houston, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia.
“Tim and Gerson both bring a strong history of successfully building and leading teams, and we’re confident that they’ll help us bring Kalahari’s beyond-expectations guest experience to Texas,” said Nelson.
Kalahari continues to seek additional talent to join its growing team, estimating hiring 700 employees in 2020 to fill open positions, including lifeguards, managerial staff, culinary staff and information technology work. For more information, visit kalahariresorts.com/kalahari-careers/.
