The Stunning Scarlet Pearl Casino
20+ Years Worth the Wait
Story and Photos by: Deborah Heylman GCN
Grand Opening was today at 11:00 am, and the Scarlet Pearl is
positioned to meet and exceed everyone's expectations. A
grand fireworks show at 6:00 p.m. on the Back Bay is befitting this
lush, exciting property.
Architecturally, Nory Hazaveh, architect for the Scarlet Pearl
Resort has accomplished a spectacular achievement. His
unique use of striking finishes is arranged to create an
exciting cohesiveness between commercial and artistic.
Shapes and textures abound in what would otherwise be empty
spaces. The casino floor is expansive, shimmering, open
and inviting. Circles are a major theme with many one-of-a-kind chandeliers being
round or oblique to match the circular design of
the colorful, lush carpeting.
Undulating lighting enhances
the spectacular metal ceiling that creates its own opulent
High-tech, polished, lustrous and glamorous is what comes to
mind upon entrance through the porte cochere, where the
circular theme is first experienced. Upon arrival to
the Scarlett Pearl, attention to detail is apparent and
Technology is certainly at the forefront with new, high tech
slots, some of which seem to have a interactive quality about
them. Many well positioned, sleek kiosks are easily
visible throughout the casino floor.
Aptly named, the Waterfront Buffet highlights a wall of windows
featuring the picturesque Back Bay. The semi-circular scheme
features soup, salad, Asian, Italian and comfort foods.
This design is refreshing and fully highlights the loveliness of
D'Iberville's southern boundary.
For those wanting a
quick, easy bite there is Chopstx Noodle. Others who might
prefer a fine dining venue will be welcomed at the Scarlett
Grill. For a more casual experience Under the Oak Cafe diners
can enjoy an "outside" atmosphere complete with a manufactured
live oak tree that sprawls into a circular, sky-blue rotunda.
Rooms with a View
Architect Hazaveh has created unique polygon shaped rooms that
ensure each of the 234 deluxe rooms, 56 suites and 10 penthouse
suites have magnificent, extraordinary views that highlight the
boundless beauty of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
views feature the Ocean Springs bridge, Biloxi Back Bay,
the I-100 bridge and beyond. These views are unobstructed
at daybreak, mid-day, dusk and evening by way of the
wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor windows.
Every stay promises to be distinctively different than the last
with the uniquely-shaped rooms and the different seasons of the
year be it winter, spring, summer, fall or Mardi Gras.

In anticipation of players needs on opening day and beyond, numerous
mobile ambassadors will be available to sign up players needing a
Players Reward card. The ambassadors will circulate the casino
floor so that waiting time is minimized.
Player Rewards cards can also be
obtained prior to opening by

Lava Links Miniature Golf
Lastly, but certainly not least,
Lava Links is a 36 hole miniature golf course that has two separate 18 hole
courses that can be played separately or as one. There is also a handicap
accessible course. Lava Links has an erupting volcano complete with
flourishing, soon-to-be well groomed grounds.
Lava Links is welcoming and available to both locals as well as
out-of-state visitors and is easily accessible with separate
The design of the gaming floor, the restaurants, the suites,
guest rooms and Lava Links miniature golf, is thoughtful and
Every aspect of the Scarlett Pearl
Resort seems to have been accomplished with an extraordinary
guest experience and satisfaction in mind.
Leaving the Scarlett Pearl Resort gives you the impression that you have
