Hotel Okura Co., Ltd. has signed an agreement with Resort World Bayshore City, Inc., a subsidiary of Philippines-based Travellers International Hotel Group Inc., to manage a new luxury resort in the Philippines.

The tentatively named Hotel Okura Manila, scheduled to open in 2018, will be part of Bayshore City Resorts World, a large-scale integrated resort, which will be the last of four multibillion-dollar private-sector casinos licensed by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation to create a gaming zone.

Called Entertainment City, the zone will be located on Manila Bay in the City of Paraaque, Metro Manila.

Bayshore City Resorts World will also have an opera house, an upscale commercial complex, condominiums, cinemas and convention facilities.

It is only three kilometers (1.86 miles) from Manilas Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and five kilometers (3.1 miles) from the City of Makati, the countrys main business district.

The hotels plans include 380 rooms in a 13-story building that will occupy 38,000 square meters (409,000 square feet).

Facilities will include Japanese and other dining facilities, four meeting/banquet rooms, a spa and rooftop pool.

Hotel Okura Co., Ltd. plans growing its portfolio to 100 properties worldwide as the first stage of its expansion, with a focus on Asia. It opened Hotel Okura Macau in 2011, and The Okura Prestige Bangkok and The Okura Prestige Taipei in 2012. Hotel Okuras subsidiary, JAL Hotels Co., Ltd., will open two new hotels in China, the Hotel Nikko Guangzhou next month and Hotel Nikko Suzhou in 2015; and Hotel Nikko Bangkok in Thailand in 2017.
