Purely amazing! I like how the gilded skin of these buildings will be resplendently complemented by the famed sunset of Manila Bay.

Tiger Resorts, Leisure and Entertainment Inc., a subsidiary of Japan-based casino resorts developer and operator Universal Entertainment Corp., is set to put the Philippines on the world map of entertainment and gaming with the construction of its US$2-Billion premiere entertainment complex project.

Highly anticipated to excite the coastlines of Manila Bay, Tiger Entertainment broke ground Thursday on a 45-hectare site located at the Bagong Nayong Pilipino Entertainment Complex to officially kick-start the rise of the next major world-class entertainment, luxury shopping and prime gaming destination in Asia – the Manila Bay Resorts.

“The Philippines, with its scenic environment and world-famous Filipino hospitality, is an excellent location for the next huge entertainment tourism hub in the region,” said Universal Entertainment Corp. Chairman Kazuo Okada. “Considering its proximity to China, South Korea, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong, Manila has a competitive advantage over other major Asian cities.”

With a vision of building a real-life wonderland, Manila Bay Resorts is ideally equipped with a variety of facilities and amenities designed to meet the entertainment, retail and gaming needs not only of the Philippines, but also of its neighboring countries.

The entertainment complex will have two luxury casino hotels hosting 450 and 600 rooms respectively. These hotels will feature topnotch local and international restaurant chains that cater to travelers and food enthusiasts across the globe. A 1000-room budget hotel will also be put up within the resorts, targeting to reach a wider market.

Intended to be a venue for fun and enjoyment of the entire family, 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.

Manila Bay Resorts will serve as a haven for busy fashionistas, ensuring an authentic and global retail brand experience through the establishment of high-end fashion boutiques and outlet malls.

True to its commitment of providing total entertainment, Manila Bay resorts will also house a world-class casino which will operate 24/7, indulging gaming aficionados’ every need.

With the government expecting to attract one million tourists in the next few years through its entertainment city project, Tiger Entertainment said it is committed to deliver on its promise to help boost the local tourism industry and eventually increase the influx of tourists upon completion of the Manila Bay Resorts project in 2014.[/URL]

Japan gaming firm to invest $2 billion in Pagcor Cityhttp://http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/bu...on-pagcor-city

MANILA, Philippines - Japanese gaming firm Universal Entertainment Corp., led by its chairman Kazuo Okada, yesterday said that it is proceeding with its planned $2-billion casino project at the Pagcor Entertainment City.

In a briefing with a select group of newsmen, Okada, speaking through an interpreter, assured that despite an ongoing legal dispute with his former Wynn Resorts partner Steve Wynn in the US, Universal Entertainment Corp. is proceeding with its planned $2-billion casino project (including the land) at the Pagcor Entertainment City.

In fact, Okada revealed, Universal Entertainment has set aside ¥50 billion or $470 million as cashflow for the casino project which is scheduled to be completed and operational by 2014.

The casino project, tentatively called the Manila Bay Resort project, currently has a provisional gaming license from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor).

Approval of the final gaming license is expected once the facilities are completed.

Aside from the casino project, Okada also revealed plans to invest in the manufacture of various casino/gaming machinery and gaming software.

He said Universal Entertainment has already put up local manufacturing facilities in Laguna.

The local manufacturing subsidiary currently called Aruze Gaming America Corp. ( but whose corporate name will be changed) was set up in 2009 with an initial investment of ¥20 billion or $270 million.

Its plant in Laguna currently manufactures parts of slot machines.

Okada revealed that they plan to invest in more metal press and plastic molding machineries. They have also bought another property in Batangas where they plan to expand manufacturing operations in the future.

According to Okada, the planned casino project is envisioned to provide jobs for up to 16,000 workers.

The planned casino project, Okada stressed, is envisioned to be a unique, world-class entertainment resort that would attract and primarily cater to a global foreign market and would be “good for the Philippine economy” because of the jobs and services that would be created.

Okada said his decision to invest in the Philippines is based on his belief that while the US, particularly Las Vegas, continues to be the No. 1 destination for gambling, the trend is now shifting to Asia.

In fact, Okada predicts that Asia will become “very important and the center of the casino industry in the near future.”

Okada expressed his disappointment over his current dispute with Steve Wynn, noting that his former American partner “looks down” on gambling practices in Asia.

Okada and Steve Wynn are currently in a dispute over Okada’s shares in Wynn Resorts in the US.

That dispute has led to a series of reports locally that appeared to cast some questions about Okada’s reputation and his dealings with Pagcor officials.

apanese firm to undertake Manila Bay Resorts project

Japanese firm Tiger Resorts, Leisure and Entertainment Inc. is set to invest $2 billion for a casino resort development project in a 45-hectare reclamation land in Manila.

Manila has been chosen as the best location for the project because of its competitive advantage over other major cities in Asia.

The PAGCOR project will rise on the Bagong Nayong Pilipino Entertainment Complex and will involve the construction of two luxury casino hotels and an entertainment hub that will feature high-end local and foreign chains of restaurants, malls and a casino that will operate 24/7.

Each of the two hotels will have 450 and 650 rooms.

A budget hotel will also be put up within the vicinity of the resorts for budget-conscious tourists.

Dubbed "Manila Bay Resorts," the project is expected to generate about 400,000 jobs in the area.

"The Philippines, with its scenic environment and world-famous Filipino hospitality, is an excellent location for the next huge entertainment tourism hub in the region," said Kazuo Okada of the Universal Entertainment Corp.

Aside from the hotels and resorts, the project will also involve an indoor manmade beach that will be sheltered by a glass dome to emulate the real beach experience.

Water fountain flows that replicate those that are seen in Las Vegas will also be built within the resort's locality.

The company also proposed to build a road that will link the Manila Bay Resorts to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Aside from Tiger Entertainment, Bloombury Investments, Belle Corp. and Resorts World are the three other major investors in the project.
