Okada Manila unveils The Garden

The Garden

TIMELY to the Yuletide season, Okada Manila has launched The Garden that offers guests either a hideaway from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis at the onset of the holiday rush, or simply get together with their loved ones.

Boasting a lush open space, it provides the best seat to marvel at the majestic Manila Bay sunset. It’s also ideal as an open-air venue for any occasion or event.

This newest attraction of the integrated resort and casino is neatly manicured with verdant foliage, palms and other green ornaments. Well-lit pathways are inviting for a brisk walk or stroll while inhaling the fresh air coming from the sea. Visitors may opt to seat or lie on the carpet-like grasses that abound or laze around the seats or gazebos on ground.

“The Garden is more than an outdoor space—it’s an integral part of Okada Manila where guests can enjoy life’s best moments under the sky with people they treasure the most,” said Ivaylo S. Ivanov, vice president for hospitality at Okada Manila.

The Retreat Spa

Drumming up the festivities is a grand Christmas tree, which stands tall along The Fountain Foyer. Taking off from this and the launch of a Zen-like attraction, this hotel and gaining facility at The Entertainment City celebrates the holidays in style with an exciting lineup of events and promotions across its numerous attractions in the coming weeks.

Feel the season’s vibe with choir performances from the award-winning Himig Rizalia. The group will render Christmas carols on all weekends of December until the 23rd.

For the kids and kids at heart, the resort cum casino will hold a meet and greet with Saint Nicholas himself at Santa’s Cabin by the Crystal Corridor junction on selected dates until December 25, from 3 to 5 p.m.

On weekends until December 16 and daily from December 21 to 25, the Yuletide Kiddie Jam at PLAY will offer activities, such as storytelling time with Santa, Christmas caroling, and fun games. Those who come in Santa outfits can get a complimentary pass for both child and guardian for their next visit, as well as 50 percent off on a six-month Moon Pass.
