Top honchos president Masahiro Terada and vice president Kenji Sugiyama met with members of the press to share their ultimate vision for a huge and integrated resort with the three-hotel property (each a 15-storey-structure) bound to be home to the biggest casino in the country. The said Resort is touted as a natural, desirable addition to Manila Bay’s cultural and commercial venues, with expectations of two plush hotels, a six-star and a five-star at that, and around 20 food and beverage destinations, retail and spa facilities, and residential properties.
“Our target is to really attract lots of people, local and foreigners, and in the process be of great help to the Philippine economy and employment,” stated Sugiyama whose background includes being a world-class hotel asset protection chief.
With emphasis on providing high class, safe entertainment and recreational activities, Manila Bay Resorts promises to be a go-to destination among Filipino families, foreign tourists, and fun-loving individuals of exquisite taste. Its hiring initiative will more or less generate 15,000 employments for Filipino job-seekers.
The 30,000 sq.m-casino alone, to open 24/7 and expect 20,000 daily guests, will have more than 500 table games and 3,000 machines to offer, while its man-made beach resort will boast an impressively looking 100-meter diameter indoor Glass Dome.
Considering that the country is currently engulfed in earthquake scare brought by the 7.2 magnitude tremor that just shattered Bohol and neighboring provinces, the Japanese-standard construction being employed in Manila Bay Resorts obviously delivers great news to everyone. Japan is known as an earthquake hotspot, thus, the use of Japanese technology in strengthening the complex means more significant safety assurance.
Apart from hotel development, the Tiger, Inc. has also opened its doors to community involvement through the project, having helped the victims of recent typhoon Pablo by donating a rice supply worth Php 2.5 million. A new effort of similar nature is being spearheaded, this time to provide assistance to victims of the devastating earthquake in the Visayan region.
Sugiyama expressed in connection, “It is part of our mission to extend a helping hand to those in need.”
The extent of wanting to make a positive impact to the country’s economy is also embedded in Tiger’s plan of giving tax contribution off its casino cash flow.
Believing that luxury signifies attention to detail, originality, exclusivity, and above all, quality, Manila Bay Resorts is seen as a state-of-the-art dream vision of producing more than a thousand spacious hotel suites, topnotch restaurants, world-class banqueting, 24-hour butler service, among others. There will also be a good blend of international luxury brands, jewelers, and specialty stores in three unique areas, including one called the “Jewel Square.”
With ethos that echoes “anything in the spirit of fun,” it is a place to change the face of entertainment in Asia.
