MANILA, Philippines - Okada Manila, the third integrated resort that opened in Manila’s version of  the Las Vegas gaming strip, is setting a new  benchmark in hospitality and casino entertainment in the Asian region.

Steve Wolstenholme, president of Okada Manila, said the $2.4-billion casino   of Japanese billionaire Kazuo Okada has the potential to compete with other gaming giants in Asia.

Okada Manila, which officially opened last Dec. 30, is seen to help boost demand for leisure in the region as well as transform the local entertainment and gaming industry.

It is Okada’s  most expensive project to date, offering over 500 table games and 3,000 electronic gaming machines. It also features a Y-shaped hotel of two wings with a total of 993 rooms, and a dancing fountain comparable only to the Dubai Fountain and the Fountains of Bellagio.

The integrated resort will also house  Asia’s first nightclub and indoor beach club enclosed in a dome, a high-end retail area, a world-class 3,000-square meter spa facility, and several food and beverage outlets.

Apart from its unique features, Okada Manila takes pride of the effortless integration of the Japanese people’s respectful demeanour, passion for creativity and hunger for innovation and hunger for innovation, and the Filipinos’ hard work, hospitality and cheerful spirit, in terms of quality service.

“And with these guiding principles and values, Okada Manila expects to bring people around the world together through fun and entertainment by providing unique experiences that no one else can deliver,” Wolstenholme said.

Being a massive project, Okada Manila has already contributed to local job generation by employing 22,000 workers to construct and develop the first phase.
