The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is adding to its Owa Parks & Resort in Foley. A $50 million resort-style hotel will be added on the northeast side of the Tropic Falls waterpark, with a planned opening set for May 2025.

Dale Partners, an architecture firm out of Mississippi, is designing the tropical-inspired, multi-story hotel, while Rabren General Contractors will oversee construction.

“This new hotel will give guests another option to relax in Coastal Alabama, while still enjoying all the fun amenities that Owa has to offer,” said Cody Williamson, president and CEO of Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority. “We continue to focus on these types of investment projects, which enable us to remain a strong economic partner for the local tourism industry and the state of Alabama.”

The hotel rooms will feature a kitchenette and workspace, along with optional bunk-bed spaces for larger families. Other key resort amenities will include an outdoor resort-style pool with a bar and grill, 24-hour fitness center, meeting space, lounge, convenience store and arcade.

The new hotel is the latest development in Owa. In March of this year, Owa opened Tropic Falls, the only indoor waterpark in the U.S., a $70 million expansion to the resort that hosts restaurants, entertainment venues and retail establishments.
