City of Dreams Manila (Chinese: 新濠天地 馬尼拉) is a 6.2-hectare (15-acre) luxury integrated resort and casino complex located on the Entertainment City gaming strip at Aseana Avenue and Roxas Boulevard in Parañaque, Metro Manila, Philippines.[1]

Overview[edit]

It is owned and developed by Melco Resorts and Entertainment (Philippines) Corporation, a joint venture between Belle Corporation, a subsidiary of SM Investments Corporation, and Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited, listed on the HKSE and NASDAQ. The US$1.3 billion resort complex formerly named Belle Grande Manila had its soft opening on December 14, 2014 and its grand opening on February 2, 2015 with live performances from local and international acts such as Gary Valenciano, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Ne-Yo and Kelly Rowland dubbed as the "Concert of Dreams" to mark its grand launch.[2] City of Dreams Manila is a sister resort to City of Dreams in Macau. It is the second of four billion dollar casinos to rise in Manila's gaming strip after Solaire Resort & Casino which opened in March 2013.[2]

The resort consists of six hotel towers with 938 rooms, which includes a Nobu Hotel, Nuwa (formerly Crown Towers) and a Hyatt Regency Hotel (rebranded from Hyatt). It has 289 gaming tables, 1,620 slot machines and 176 electronic table games.[1][2] A feature of the casino resort is the dome-like structure called Fortune Egg which houses two international nightclubs namely, Chaos and Pangaea, both developed by the group led by “International King of Clubs” Michael Van Cleef Ault.[3] City of Dreams also contains a 60,000-80,000 sq.m. shopping mall called The Shops at The Boulevard.[4] A theme park is also located within the property called DreamPlay built in collaboration with DreamWorks Animation.[5]

The Upper Ground Level of the Carpark Building was closed to give way for the expansion of The Shops at The Boulevard. A new entertainment area (The Garage) is opening on October that will feature local and international restaurants along with a VR Zone Arcade, a partnership with Bandai Namco Amusement.
