As the four-day weekend approaches, for city dwellers who prefer to avoid the traffic jams and the airport crush, Resorts World Manila (RWM) offers relaxation without the troubles of peak season travel.
Staycationers can rest in luxury in one of the 1,934 elegantly appointed rooms and suites spread across the four hotels within RWM, from all-suite Maxims Hotel, global five-star brand Marriott Hotel Manila, the business traveler’s Belmont Hotel Manila and the value-for-money Remington Hotel.
When it comes to dining, guests have over 50 dining outlets to choose from, including 12 signature dining restaurants featuring authentic global dishes by culinary artists such as RWM director for culinary arts Cyrille Soenen, the first and only master chef of France in residence in the Philippines.
Newport Mall is a family-friendly destination with many shopping, dining and entertainment options for guests, including exclusive luxury retail brands. Newport Cinemas Ultra Cinema 1 has been cited by online magazine Architecture and Design as one of the most beautiful cinemas in the world. GameZoo Family Arcade is a two-story video and fun arcade, with simulation rides, video games, videoke booths and a play area for toddlers.
RWM provides multisensory thrills for guests with its entertainment and dining lounges. Bar 360’s circular stage provides guests with prime views of musical and acrobatic acts, while serving premium drinks and custom cocktails. Bar 180 at the second-floor casino features performances and drinks in a classic piano bar setting.
For this long weekend, guests can listen to Spices of Love on Saturday, indulge their love of all things Filipino with the “I Heart Pinoy” musical extravaganza on Sunday, and be mesmerized by Spicy Steps, featuring RWM international dancers and Russian acrobatic masters Amazonian Duo, on Monday, all at Bar 360.
Families can also treat themselves to RWM’s well-reviewed musical “Annie” at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, featuring a combination of emerging talents and Philippine theater legends, with matinee and evening shows scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.
