Japanese hotel group Hotel Okura Co announced that Hotel Okura Manila will open in Manila, Philippines in the latter part of this year within the Resorts World Manila complex.

As a gateway to Makati City, a financial district in the Philippines, the hotel will offer easy access to Manila’s business and leisure centers.

Hotel Okura Manila will be a state-of-the-art resort destination distinguished by its sophisticated Okura-style hospitality. It will offer numerous dining options, including traditional Japanese, all-day dining and a bar. Guests will enjoy the comforts of spacious rooms, as well as a pool and fitness facility.

“As Hotel Okura’s first hotel to open in the Philippines, we will leverage the group’s expertise in traditional Japanese hospitality to make Hotel Okura Manila a much-beloved hotel among both local and foreign visitors,” said Toshihiro Ogita, president of Hotel Okura Co., Ltd.

“For the past five years, the Philippines has experienced high economic growth surpassing 6% per annum, and its tourism market is expected to achieve mid- to long-term growth,” Ogita added.

Hotel Okura Manila will be Hotel Okura’s second Manila property to be announced.

“Hotel Okura has worked closely with TIHGI, which has been a supportive and reliable partner,” Ogita commented. Hotel Okura is pursuing an ambitious plan to expand its global portfolio to 100 properties, primarily in the fast-growing Asian region.

Hotel Okura aims to strengthen the bond with the promising markets including the Philippines. To remark its commitment, Hotel Okura has made a donation of 100,000 USD to the Philippine Red Cross for natural disaster recovery in 2013. –
