Okada Manila sees bright 2022 end

Things are looking up again for Okada Manila, one of the country’s premier casino hotel operators with the reinstatement of its legitimate board after a row that lasted for months.

At a press event on Wednesday, Tiger Resort Leisure and Entertainment Inc. president Byron Yip said Okada Manila eyes to close the year with better traction in its business. TRLEI is the operator of Okada Manila.

“Things are looking up again; we have seen a steady increase in foot traffic and we now average 300,000 visitors monthly. This proves that the gaming sector is rebounding. We are working towards a stronger end of the year as we welcome 2023,” Yip told reporters.

During the first nine months, Okada Manila recorded a 355-percent surge in foot traffic from its year-ago level — driven largely by the steady influx of foreign and local guests.

According to Yip, Okada will prioritize ramping up its hotel and dining business to cater to the growing demand after the economic activities return to normalcy.

While retail spaces within the 42-hectare Okada Manila premises, Yip said he expects to fully utilize the spaces “as soon as possible,” especially after it revamped some of its restaurants and opened a new VIP club.
