Okada Manila Review

Okada Manila

Do you want to be mesmerized by perfection in details and top-notch facilities? Okada Manila is definitely the place to go if you are looking to pamper yourself and experience luxury at its finest. Me and my husband were fortunate enough to stay at this 5* hotel, after traveling full time for almost 4 months and it has been by far the highlight of our trip to Asia. We decided to spend the holidays with some dear friends, that are living in the Philippines and in our last days of the trip, we were rewarded with an incredible experience at The Manila Bay Suite, a luxurious 2-bedroom apartment, overlooking the Manila Bay.
Located in Manila’s Entertainment City, Okada hotel combines the traditional Japanese style with a warm Filipino hospitality. This integrated resort is the definition of luxury and five-star services. With world-class amenities, such as an outdoor swimming pool, a spa and wellness center and a variety of fine-dining options, Okada Manila is committed to offer its guests an unforgettable stay.

Manila Bay Suite

Upon arriving at the hotel, we were swept away by the opulence and grandeur of the reception lobby and lounge. After a candid welcome, we went up to the 17th floor, to our spectacular suite. As we entered, a warm sunlight was bathing the rooms in shades of yellow and gold. I felt like a child, excited to open gifts, on a much-expected Christmas morning. Impressive was not only its size but also the beautifully decorated rooms.
The 400-square feet apartment has 2 large bedrooms, both with walk-in closets, designed in an exquisite fusion of Japanese-Italian style, intelligent toilets with Roberto Cavalli amenities, jet tubs and rain showers, a private massage room and an entertainment area together with a very spacious dining room. My favorite part is the bath tub, from where you can be delighted with the most amazing views over the Manila Bay and the rest of the hotel, especially during the golden moments of sunset. Imagine luxuriating in a bubble bath underneath a charming glow of a crystal chandelier. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the end of a productive day.
Everything in the apartment is automated, meaning you can control the lights, air-conditioning, music, request for housekeeping and many other commands with the simple touch of a small screen, which is available in all the rooms. The time we spent here will not be forgotten, the suite impressed us deeply and if we ever have a chance, we will return at Okada Manila.

The Retreat Spa

We were lucky enough to get a 2-hour experience at The Retreat Spa, an oasis of serenity, that offers complex wellness solutions. The friendly staff welcomed us with a warm rose bath, in which I jumped straight away. Very patiently, our therapists waited for us and after briefing us the details of our treatment, we started the “ritual” with a Himalayan salt scrub, followed by a Feminine Spirit massage, which is a relaxation massage combined with meditation. Afterwards, a hot pack was placed on our stomachs and a cold pack on the lower back, to help reduce any kind of inflammation and to promote a better health, together with rose quartz gemstone along the spine, which are associated with healing and the energy of love. The experience was heavenly, we were pampered and spoiled and quite frankly, we lost track of time. The staff are very well trained and extremely professional.
Next to the spa is the outdoor swimming pool, a fully-equipped fitness center, a hot-jet tub, a sauna and a steam room. After the session, we were offered a ginger tea, apple-infused water and some light snacks from their tonic bar.

Cove Manila

Cove is both a beach club and a nightclub, inside a 30-meter tall glass dome. During our stay at Okada, we passed by only to take some pictures, but we had been at Cove previously, to celebrate New Year’s Eve. The place is spectacular, throwing some of the best parties in Manila, with world-renowned artists. With a Las Vegas design, the club is definitely competing with some of the biggest and most famous venues in the world. The indoor butterfly-shaped swimming pool has its own bar for the convenience of the guests. Another awesome feature of the club is the 29 private cabanas, all equipped with hot tubs. During the day, you can relax and unwind by the pool or in a hot tub, getting ready for the party, when you can dance the night away on the sounds of sensational DJs.

Thailand was a long-awaited vacation. We had been working non-stop for 6 months, which might not seem like a long time, but if you are a travel addict, like us, that’s an eternity.
