The hotel complex is so grand, it will take $2 billion to construct the complex inside the 45-hectare site located at the Bagong nayong Pilipino at the Manila Bay area.
Envisioned to put the Philippines on the world map of entertainment and gaming, the complex will start construction in February 2012. The hotel complex is expected to hire some 15,000 locals to help in the construction and in other services.
Inside the complex, there will be two luxury casino hotels hosting 450 and 600 rooms respectively along with a 1,000 room budget hotel.
Catering to a wider market, Manila Bay Resorts will also have 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.
There will also be high-end fashion boutiques and outlet malls inside the complex.
The company also revealed that the company is now looking at the possibility of creating an expressway from the nearby Ninoy Aquino International Airport direct to the complex as an added amenity to prospective clients.
Kazuo Okada, Chairman of Tiger Resorts expressed confidence that the planned Manila Bay Resorts will attract enough tourists from neighboring Asian countries as well as from the rest of the world.
