Okada Manila pushes opening to end-March

Philippine’s largest integrated resort Okada Manila has pushed back the date of its grand opening to the end of March, according to a company press release.

Earlier this month, Pagcor chief Andrea Domingo in an interview with The Inquirer was of the understanding that the resort’s full opening was scheduled for February 17.

Tiger Resort Leisure and Entertainment, operators of the $2.4 billion casino resort held a soft opening on Dec. 21, and officially commenced casino operations on Dec. 30.

“Since that time the construction focus has been on the VIP casino floors, restaurants, world-class fountains and other facilities in preparation for the grand opening,” said the property in its press statement.

The company says it is now targeting to hold the grand opening “at the end of March 2017.”
