Hotel Okura Manila announced recently that it will soft open its doors on December 28, 2021. Located at Portwoord Street (formerly Palm Drive) in Resorts World Manila, the 11-storey hotel will welcome guests with the signature luxury service associated with the Okura Hotels & Resorts brand – and is set to provide elegant and refined Japanese omotenashi combined with Filipino warmth.
Hotel Okura Manila will offer a Japanese atmosphere in the city; the 18-meter-high atrium lobby at the 5th floor will showcase a picturesque row of modern Japanese-inspired structures, surrounded by natural elements of wood and stone; as well as a minimalist garden and a mountainous landscape that envelope the whole atrium.
The 190-room Hotel Okura Manila offers a wide array of accommodations, including the Hinoki-yu Room which features Hinoki (Japanese cypress) wooden bathtubs handcrafted by Japanese artisans from the mountainous Nagiso Town, Nagano Prefecture.
All guest rooms are furnished with luxurious beds, separate areas for bathtub and rainfall shower, and state-of-the-art amenities such as a flatscreen TV, high-speed internet connectivity, multimedia room controls, Nespresso machine, and Japanese bidet.
At the topmost floor, the hotel offers leisure and recreation facilities within close proximity to each other to provide a serene sanctuary in the city. The fully equipped fitness center features state-of-the-art machines for cardiovascular and strength exercises, as well as free weights. In-house guests can also take a refreshing plunge at the 20-meter pool overlooking the Manila skyline, and experience the health club’s jet baths as a soothing finish to a strenuous workout.
Its accessibility from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) will be an ideal choice for business and leisure travelers because of its proximity to Makati and Bonifacio Global City, key business and financial districts in Metro Manila.
Hotel Okura Manila will bring an exciting culinary experience to the Philippine food scene from its world-class dining options. The signature Japanese fine dining restaurant, Yamazato, offers authentic Japanese cuisine with private dining rooms that provide ideal setting for business meetings or intimate gatherings. The all-day dining restaurant, Yawaragi, offers Japanese-oriented food with Western and Asian specialties, as well as high tea and cocktails. It also features a robatayaki table, a bar lounge, and a private chef’s table.
Hotel Okura Manila is part of One Harmony, the Okura Nikko Hotel Management’s loyalty membership for Okura Hotels & Resorts, Nikko Hotels International, and Hotel JAL City. Members can earn points and enjoy special services, benefits and awards with no membership or annual fees. There will be special offerings on the soft opening for Standard and Loyal members for the period of November 10 to December 31, 2021.
