Haven't gone to Okada but it seems to have that welcoming feel to it; fancy but not intimidating. The nearby Solaire actually made me take a second look at my wallet.

Yeah Solaire is awesome and is more to my tastes, although I haven't been to this one as well. You can tell that even the interiors are still unfinished but it would continue to show vast improvement over time (they've got the funds). That fountain and beach club though...

I don't really fancy the retail lot design (orange at the top, and glass at the bottom). The orange top seems very plain and lack any quality/style. It should be designed with more emphasis on the colonial design (i believe that is what they were initially looking at), or have the whole retail lot fully glass (like Apple new retail outlet in US). That will give it some class.

Maybe it will look better in person, instead of just based off the photos.

It's still incomplete really.

This integrated casino resort is being forced into completion by the lead government gambling agency, and the developers are trying to avoid paying hefty fines with their piecemeal openings of some areas in the complex. That's why you still see cranes all around and unfinished interior work, because to be frank they're not yet ready. Some guests have already complained that it's still a construction site.

But I'm hoping there would be continuing improvements to the interior finish as the construction goes on. As for the style, I guess it leans more to the Japanese owner's tastes. I read somewhere that they wanted the place to look welcoming and not intimidating to visitors. Personally, I like the interiors of the very first casino that stood in that zone a lot better, but this one takes the cake as far the attractions on offer and the sense of scale go.

Yeah, this project seems to be taking rather long. I really wonder how they schedule the construction process. Even Marina Bay Sands had a one-time delay, but Okada Manila seems to be having many minor delays.

The interior of the hotel looks nice; the buffet area, really nice. My only feedback was the retail area (facing the fountain). The orange top gives off a rather plain, boring, lackluster feel. The night time was OK as they projected lights, but how often are they going to do that? [email protected] (Singapore) uses grey for their wall but it was done in a tasteful manner, so it looks nice both day/night.

Hopefully the interior of the retail area is also still incomplete. But judging from the pictures, it seems like the retail lots are done, maybe 95% done. I don't see how they are going to add on any architectural design to the already existing retail lots, unless its a new tenant entering (eg LV take up one of the lots, and request to do a renovation from top to bottom).

I guess, as you pointed out, it boils down to the owner's taste. Yup, they wanted it to be inviting, in which everyone can visit the place and not feel as if they are priced out. But I think they can do better. Just look at The [email protected] The retail lot design should at least be like that, and The [email protected] caters to the mass market.

Well, these are just my opinion. Really hope to see Okada Manila succeed. I guess at this moment, completing the project is the main priority.

are those orange? I actually thought it was salmon....

I kinda like it, it gives off a subtle elegance, as well as looking a bit retro.

One thing's for sure, you don't see those colors here that often

from the pictures, it seems orange-ish, light brown-ish, salmon-ish color. It has that retro look, which is kinda cool, but it seems just too plain, design wise. hopefully this is just 50% completed, and when it reaches 100% completion, it is going to be fantastic.

Maybe I will like it if I am there personally. Probably the photos does not do justice to the design.
