Solaire Resort and Casino launches with a splashy presentation

We just came back from the preview at the Peninsula Manila of the new Solaire Resort & Casino, scheduled to open by Manila Bay this March 2013. 

Solaire is designed by world-renowned architect and designer Paul Steelman of Steelman Partners in Las Vegas, and its concept for Solaire has been described as a timeless classic.

This new and groundbreaking entertainment complex will bring new life to the Manila area, as well as usher in tourists and gaming aficionados from around the world.

This new and massive entertainment complex will revolutionize the gaming industry. It has an 18,500 sqm bi-level gaming space, as well as an outdoor themed-casino and a 6,000 sqm VIP gaming salon

It's terribly exciting to see what this casino will be offering seasoned gamblers and high rollers. After all, the Solaire team is headed by some of the top names in the international gaming industry.

Solaire’s management team headed by William Weidner (Chairman & Chief Executive Officer), Bradley Stone (President) and Michael French (Chief Operating Officer), partners of international Filipino businessman Ricky Razon, have had years of gaming experience at established casinos all over the world, from Las Vegas to Macau.

Hotel PR veteran Joy Wassmer also joined the Solaire team just two days ago.

The resort will offer 500 luxurious rooms, suites, and villas with stunning views of the Manila Bay sunset. Guests will also be able to indulge in its four signature restaurants which -- to quote one of Solaire's top executives today -- will be the best restaurants in Manila

They will have a Chinese restaurant called Red Lantern, a steak house called Strip, a Japanese restaurant Yakumi, and an Italian restaurant called Finestra. Casual dining will be available at Fresh, (international buffet),  Lucky Noodles, and the Breeze Bar & Grill.

Solaire will also be competing with other local casinos in terms of entertainment offered. The management plans to bring in Broadway-caliber performances so this is certainly also something everyone can look forward to.

When asked how he defines Solaire vs. other local casinos, Michael French said that Solaire will be the “Rolls Royce of Casinos.”

Solaire is set to launch Phase 1 – an area measuring 8.3 hectares – by March 2013.
