More than having the world’s biggest multicolor dancing fountain and the Philippines’ largest integrated resort, Okada Manila continues to introduce extraordinary offerings.
Catering to clients’ “land” requirements with the hotels’ various ballrooms, including a capacious Grand Ballroom, the hotel is now expanding its Events venue portfolio with the introduction of “at sea” venue via its yacht and “air” travel through its private jet – coming full circle to meet clients’ diversified needs.
According to Cielo Ortega-Reboredo, Okada Manila’s Vice President for Sales & Marketing, Hospitality and Entertainment Division, “Okada Manila takes heed of our roster of clientele’s changing needs. They are looking for alternative venues that go beyond land. I’m proud that Okada Manila is the first integrated resort in the Philippines to pioneer “land, sea and air” venue offerings and service.
