A City of Wonders

[SPONSORED CONTENT] Okada Manila is an “entertainment city,” an integrated resort shining with Manila’s brightest lights.

Published on Feb 6, 2018

IT’S GREAT TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL by immersing yourself in a whole new world. When you check in to Okada Manila, you’ll never feel the need to leave, brimming as it is with the most exciting, high-tech entertainment options in the Philippine capital.

Your first awesome encounter will be The Fountain, a wondrous landmark that captivates all as the world’s largest multicolor choreographed water feature. The underwater robots commanding a space the size of 50 Olympic swimming pools for customized performances featuring hits such as “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele and “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith will grab your attention and never let go. But there’s another amazing eye-candy inside, namely, the World of Wonders, the in-house performance troupe that brings the magical combination of visual art and special effects to new heights, thanks to the vision of creative director Giulio Scatola, who earned his chops with Cirque du Soleil.

Head to the glittering casino to try your luck at the largest variety of table games and slots in the country.

All that action will have you working up an appetite, but you can satisfy any craving at the broad medley of signature restaurants here. From Chinese fine dining to Korean barbecue to European fusion, there’s always something new to taste no matter how long you stay. Particularly impressive is Michelin-starred chef Hirofumi Imamura of Japanese Kappou Imamura, whose culinary artistry is matched by his knowledge of sake, of which he’s a certified sommelier. With new additions La Piazza, offering authentic Italian gastronomy and an expansive wine cellar, and Enbu, which delights with a festive robotayaki grill experience, the dining choices are mouthwateringly endless.

Then, cap off your successful day with a toast at Cove Manila—an indoor beach club and nightclub that is the ultimate high-end day and nightlife destination. The 9,000 square-meter UV-protected glass dome feels like a breezy bayside summer day all year long. The country’s first kinetic chandelier blasts 10,000 visual and kinetic effects to ensure you really get your groove on. And when you’re done dancing, chill in your private luxury cabana featuring your own hot tub and take in the scenery of stunning Manila Bay.

When it’s time to retire from the buzziest hotspot in town, your luxury suite or villa awaits. Each Okada guestroom is stocked with world-class amenities including a jet tub, and has a fantastic, cinematic view of Manila Bay or The Fountain—so you always feel surrounded by the sublime, even in the serenity of your home away from home.
