Okada Manila unveils ‘The Fountain,’ signs partnership with OPM

Setting the bar for integrated resort entertainment, Okada Manila executives promise an immersive style, which highlights culture and the arts.

At the media luncheon held last week, Okada Manila president Steve Wolstenholme said the 44-hectare property will be a “gamechanger” among the other integrated resorts located in the Entertainment City in Parañaque City.
On a soft opening starting today until its grand launch sometime end of February next year, visitors to the property will notice a dancing fountain, reminiscent of famed fountains in other destinations such as the Dubai Fountain in United Arab Emirates and at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, United States.
Designers and makers of said fountains are the same team, which was tapped by Okada to create what they call the soon-to-be iconic feature, The Fountain.
The $30-million fountain designed by WET measures 37,464 sq.m., said to be equivalent to 50 Olympic-size swimming pools.
WET director of technical resources Jim Doyle tells Daily Tribune that it will be like watching a “painting in the sky,” a multicolored light show that features the many varied beautiful flowers of the Philippines. Doyle said it is the first time that their group has done a project that uses multi-color projection.
The projection, said Wolstenholme, shoots from the bottom to a height of about 30 meters.
Accompanying this dancing fountain show are performances as visualized and choreographed by creative director and choreographer for entertainment Giulio Scatola. Scatola brings with him his vast theater and performing arts experience from Cirque du Soleil and West End to come up with “interactive performances that blend elements from circus, club, cabaret and theater” to present a series of performances that are bound together into one beautiful imagery of a moving and evolving stage.
Besides Scatola’s World of Wonders feature, Okada Manila has also signed an unprecedented partnership that is considered as another gamechanging move.
The Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM) partnership with Okada Manila, said Wolstenholme, is an integral partnership in its aim of bringing Filipino entertainment to the world.
OPM members will be highlighted in a series of shows and performances in the property.
During today’s preview, guests will see some of these celebrated artists perform at the outdoor concert which will also feature a fireworks and light show.
Besides The Fountain, Okada Manila will also feature a 9,000-sq.m. entertainment venue enclosed in a glass dome and a UV-protected indoor beach club featuring two stages with a maximum capacity of up to 4,500 guests.
