Tiger Resorts, Leisure and Entertainment Inc., a subsidiary of Japan-based casino resorts developer and operator Universal Entertainment Corp., is set to put the Philippines on the world map of entertainment and gaming with the construction of its US$2-Billion premiere entertainment complex project.
Highly anticipated to excite the coastlines of Manila Bay, Tiger Entertainment broke ground Thursday on a 45-hectare site located at the Bagong Nayong Pilipino Entertainment Complex to officially kick-start the rise of the next major world-class entertainment, luxury shopping and prime gaming destination in Asia – the Manila Bay Resorts.
“The Philippines, with its scenic environment and world-famous Filipino hospitality, is an excellent location for the next huge entertainment tourism hub in the region,” said Universal Entertainment Corp. Chairman Kazuo Okada. “Considering its proximity to China, South Korea, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong, Manila has a competitive advantage over other major Asian cities.”
With a vision of building a real-life wonderland, Manila Bay Resorts is ideally equipped with a variety of facilities and amenities designed to meet the entertainment, retail and gaming needs not only of the Philippines, but also of its neighboring countries.
The entertainment complex will have two luxury casino hotels hosting 450 and 600 rooms respectively. These hotels will feature topnotch local and international restaurant chains that cater to travelers and food enthusiasts across the globe. A 1000-room budget hotel will also be put up within the resorts, targeting to reach a wider market.
Intended to be a venue for fun and enjoyment of the entire family, an indoor man-made beach, replicating the country’s world-renowned summer destinations, will be built right at the center of the complex. Covered in a huge glass dome, the beach club will use 100% natural lighting to actualize the ambiance of a real beach getaway.
The complex will also be home to one of the world’s majestic large-scale water fountain shows to the delight of every individual who come to look for a perfect place to unwind and be free from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
Manila Bay Resorts will serve as a haven for busy fashionistas, ensuring an authentic and global retail brand experience through the establishment of high-end fashion boutiques and outlet malls.
True to its commitment of providing total entertainment, Manila Bay resorts will also house a world-class casino which will operate 24/7, indulging gaming aficionados’ every need.
With the government expecting to attract one million tourists in the next few years through its entertainment city project, Tiger Entertainment said it is committed to deliver on its promise to help boost the local tourism industry and eventually increase the influx of tourists upon completion of the Manila Bay Resorts project in 2014.
