After one-and-a-half years, Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in the Pocono Mountains, Pa., is set to open its doors.

The grand opening will of the brand-new resort is slated for July 1. The hotel—the first Kalahari on the East Coast—features 457 rooms and suites, 65,000-square-feet of meeting space, a spa, an 18-hole, Donald Ross-designed golf course and a number of retail shops. The hotel is the largest indoor waterpark in the state of Pennsylvania.

The meeting space includes 25,000-square-foot and 9,000-square foot ballrooms, 18 meeting spaces, a handful of hospitality suites, two boardrooms and nine meeting rooms designed for smaller get-togethers. 

Pittsburgh may be known as The Steel City, but it has plenty of greenery, too, and opportunities for groups attending meetings here to get out in nature. The Pittsburgh CVB, which has the tagline “Only in Pittsburgh,” has proudly shared the news that the Great Allegany Passage was named a winner in the 2022 USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” travel award contest for “best recreational trail.”
