Okada Manila Brings Philippine Music Into the Limelight


December 20, 2016 | BY Philippine Tatler

Okada Manila, the newest Japanese resort in Manila owned by the Tiger Resort, Leisure and Entertainment Inc., is set to bring world-class entertainment and attractions that can rival that of the most luxurious properties in Las Vegas and Dubai while putting Philippine music at the forefront.


The most impressive and third integrated resort to open in Entertainment City in Paranaque, Okada Manila makes this possible through exciting partnerships with WET and Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM). These were formalized by Okada Manila COO Takahiro Usui, Okada Manila President Steve Wolstenholme, WET Director of Design Technology Jim Doyle, and OPM executives including Christian Bautista, Gary Valenciano, Dingdong Avanzado and Noel Cabangon.  


WET the world-famous designer and maker of the grandest fountains in the most prestigious resorts and hotels across 20 countries in 5 continents, developed and constructed Okada Manila’s US$30-million fountain. Measuring 37,464sqm—equivalent to 50 Olympic-size swimming pools—it will be the most iconic feature of the 44-hectare property and will be a one-of-a-kind venue for special events and concerts, open 365 days a year. 

And as it is Okada Manila’s advocacy to promote world-class entertainment led by the best Filipino artists, we can be sure that local talents will be featured regularly at The Fountain and other venues within the property. As part of their collaboration with OPM, Okada Manila will support local arts and music industries in a magnitude no other integrated resort has offered before.

 The amazing fountain serves as one of the settings for the best that Philippine music artists have to offer. The stellar destination resort also has a 9,000sqm entertainment venue enclosed in a glass dome, as well as the largest UV-protected indoor beach club in Southeast Asia featuring two expansive stages, with a maximum capacity of up to 4,500 guests.

 With The Fountain and top-notch OPM performances, Okada Manila is set to enthrall visitors of all ages from the Philippines and around the world as it creates another benchmark in the country’s entertainment-inspired destination tourism landscape.
