Widus Resort & Casino's Tower 2

Lobby entrance
Widus Hotel & Casino's new 5-storey wing (Tower 2), opened last November 2013, right after the start of the Emirates’ non-stop daily flights between Dubai and Clark, is located across the existing beautiful, free-form swimming pool, at the back of the older Tower 1. 

It has 114 additional rooms (four 33 sq. m. executive double deluxe rooms and 110 of the slightly bigger 35 sq. m. executive de luxe queen rooms). This brings this deluxe hotel's total room capacity to 233 rooms.

Reception lobby
All these elegant and spacious rooms, with their Zen-inspired interiors, are equipped with queen-size beds and state-of the-art amenities such as 32” flat screen cable TV, electronic entry lock; IDD/NDD phone; coffee and tea station; hair dryer, writing table; mini-refrigerator; in-room safety deposit box; luxurious private bathroom with an 8" ceiling-mounted shower head and top of the line toiletries; balcony with glass panelings and free high-speed wi-fi access. 
Executive  De Luxe Double Room

The carp pond
The new tower's exterior also mirrors Tower 1's unique, modern tropical and Southeast Asian-inspired facade.  The main lobby as well as elevator lobbies are also naturally lit by huge fixed, tinted glass windows.  

Also, as with Tower 1, water elements, in the form of artistically-designed fountains as well as a carp pond accessible from the reception area, compliment the existing verdant and well-manicured landscape.  
Tower 2 is connected to Tower 1 and its food and beverage outlets by a covered walkway.
