Tiger Palace takes final steps towards soft opening

Silver Heritage Group’s Tiger Palace Bhairahawa is set for a soft opening by month’s end, with final works on the Nepal resort to be completed over the next ten days.

“Co-founders Mike Bolsover and Tim Shepherd, together with local partners, members of the development, operations and pre-opening teams, and contractors were officially the first guests of the hotel last week, on September 11, 2017, as part of the final defect rectification, testing and pre-opening phase,” wrote the company in an ASX announcement on Wednesday.

Over the weekend, a number of staff also moved into the property, including project director Adam Titus and his project managers, quantity surveyor and accounts team, as well as the executive general manager of Tiger Palace Resort Paul Simmons and his senior operations management team.

The casino operations team have also begun their on-site training at Tiger Palace, while the resort booked its first paying hotel guests on Wednesday.

Silver Heritage says the casino remains on schedule to open by November 30, 2017.
