With a vision of bringing an outstanding and multi-dimensional entertainment experience to Manila, the resort's entertainment elements will leverage off Melco Crown Entertainment's experience in delivering spectacular entertainment attractions catering towards Asian tastes and preferences. The integrated resort will feature three distinctive entertainment venues, including Manila's first branded Family Entertainment Center, a live performance central lounge inside the casino and a night club situated at the Fortune Egg, an architecturally-unique dome-like structure, which will be accented with creative exterior lighting design and is expected to become an iconic landmark of the Manila Bay area.
Mr. Ho continued, "It has always been our vision to pioneer the most innovative, world-class entertainment and leisure attractions throughout Asia, including the Philippines. The Philippines is a rapidly emerging market, with a burgeoning middle class and strong economic growth expected to contribute to robust growth in domestic tourism. Helped by a committed and forward-thinking Government approach to driving tourism, the Philippines is also well placed to cater to the increasingly affluent and growing middle class throughout Asia, who continue to seek new travel destinations and experiences throughout the region. We are confident that our Manila resort project would contribute meaningfully to the Philippines Government's aim to promote tourism. We are also looking forward to working with Belle Corporation of the SM Group, one of the leading developers of high-end residential and leisure properties in the Philippines, to bring this exciting project to realization and ensure its long term success."
