Bloomberry Resorts Corp has added 66 VIP gaming tables and 223 slot machines to its Solaire Resort and Casino (pictured) in Manila. The extra capacity is included in a new hotel tower that opened on the weekend of November 22 and 23.
The facility – known as the Sky Tower – also has 312 suites, a Chinese restaurant and a whisky and cigar bar for VIP customers.
Thomas Arasi, Bloomberry Resorts’ president and chief operating officer, described the new facility as a “game changer in providing best in class guest experience”.
The newly opened area also includes meeting rooms and a 1,760-seat theatre.
Bloomberry Resorts says it will add shops – to what it refers to as the Phase 1A expansion of Solaire – in stages next year, in partnership with local developer Ayala Land Inc.
Solaire’s market rival City of Dreams Manila – a casino resort also within the Philippine Gaming and Amusement Corp’s Entertainment City zone, and to be managed by a unit of Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd – is due to have a soft opening in December. That’s according to the parent’s co-chairman Lawrence Ho Yau Lung speaking during Melco Crown’s third quarter earning call on November 6
Bloomberry Resorts recorded a profit of PHP3.3 billion (US$73.5 million) in the first nine months of the year, compared to a P868 million loss reported a year ago. It attributed the improvement to stronger gaming revenues.
Solaire opened in March 2013.
