Hotel Okura Co., Ltd has entered an agreement with Travellers International Hotel Group Inc. (TIHGI)to manage Hotel Okura Manila, which will open in Manila, Philippines in 2018.

Located near Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), the 191-room Hotel Okura Manila will be situated within Resorts World Manila, an integrated resort owned by TIHGI.

As a gateway to Makati City, the country’s financial district, the hotel will offer easy access to Manila’s business and leisure centers. “As Hotel Okura’s first hotel to open in the Philippines, we will leverage the group’s expertise in traditional Japanese hospitality to make Hotel Okura Manila a much-beloved hotel among both local and foreign visitors,” says Toshihiro Ogita, president of Hotel Okura Co., Ltd.

“For the past five years, the Philippines has experienced high economic growth surpassing 6 per cent per annum, and its tourism market is expected to achieve mid- to long-term growth.”
