I finally got to visit the newest mega casino resort that just opened in Manila.
As soon as you pass the tight security and enter the lobby you are greeted by two statuesque ladies in high, high heels. The large skylight and beautiful decorative fixtures were quite impressive.
The scale and grandeur really felt like I was in Macau or Las Vegas.
Beautiful multi-colored hydrangeas were the focal point near the registration area.
I went back to the hotel a few days later and the colors of the flowers changed.
This is the VIP entrance. If you enter here it will be nearer to the restaurants. You will need a special VIP card to use this entrance.
I like the colorful carpet and the gorgeous ceiling.
After our lunch at Finestra (post to follow) we requested to see their hotel room.
It was a pretty nice and modern hotel room. This was the standard room which costs P8,000 (USD$200).
There was an iPhone or iPod dock speaker system on the side table. You’re out of luck if you use an iPhone 5 though.
I don’t really like the table under the tv but I guess it serves it’s purpose as extra storage space. Those doors serve a purpose too.
Behind door 1 is the mini bar and refrigerator.
Behind door 2 is the closet and the countertop safe.
I wish all hotel rooms have separate shower stalls and tub like this. An additional handheld shower is a bonus seldom seen in hotels.
From the room I saw this single level structure facing Manila Bay. I learnt that this was the Bayside Villa which measured 546 square meters and rents for P150,000.00 (USD$3,630) a night. I think you have to be a high roller or Head of State or just filthy rich to stay there. I wish I could take a tour inside.
Beside it is the Chairman’s Villa which is even bigger at 936 square meters (bigger than most mansions) which you can rent for P300,000.00 (USD$7,260). According to our guide only the chairman Mr. Razon has stayed there.
