#ReYEStoCortez: Valentine's Day Staycation at Okada Manila

by - Wednesday, June 01, 2022

As newly weds, I believe that romance shouldn't stop. I mean, go pack your bags and keep having adventures. So we had our first Valentine's trip as a married couple at Okada Manila.

» Okada Manila «

Okada Manila, opened in December 2016, is a 5-star casino resort and hotel complex in the Philippines. It is a massive complex spanning of 44 hectares located in the Entertainment City in Parañaque City, Metro Manila.

» Booking Procedure «

You can book through its website okadamanila.com or through other reliable third-party booking sites such as Booking.com or Agoda.com. 

I booked the latter one for a better hotel deal with free cancellation. Why? I was afraid that the alert levels (recommended by IATF) will change again in the Philippines so it's better to be prepared.

» Rooms «

The hotel has 993 rooms to choose from, with views of either Manila Bay or The Fountain. We stayed in the Deluxe Room (king bed).

» Overall «

Upon parking in the basement, we headed to the Coral Wing and checked in at their glamorous lobby at around 2:30 pm. Yes, we were so early and we didn't fall in line that long considering that we were booked in a peak season. I salute them for the fast transaction. It was a five-star hotel resort indeed! Just take note that there's a Php 5000 refundable (upon checkout) deposit (in cash) at the lobby. 

Upon entering the room, we were welcomed with a nice, calming music. One of my favorites' is the DigiValet Service, a fully-automated iPad device that controls the lights, sounds, air-condition, curtains, act as a remote for the television as well can be used for hospitality requests. Our assigned room was on the 9th floor, facing the pool and the Manila Bay. Everything looks luxurious to us and the money was well spent.
