The Grand Fountain at OKADA MANILA


The Fountain officially debuts a first-of-its-kind spectacular dancing water fountain show in sync with music and glowing with beautiful multicolor lights. Water blossoms bud and unfurl, forming the eight petals of a large Sampaguita, as jets of water race across the surface of the lake in graceful, sweeping arcs. The feathery expressions of water move with the agility of dancers, twisting and twirling, as coordinated by fountain developer WET’s team of choreographers.
The Fountain’s launch repertoire includes timeless classics and songs from some of the most popular singers, including Luciano Pavarotti’s “Nessun Dorma,” Elvis Presley’s “Fever” as interpreted by Michael Buble, Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain,” and Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” from The Great Gatsby movie soundtrack.
One of the world’s grandest fountains deserves nothing less than a world-class unveiling event featuring extraordinary performers. Okada Manila brings in international multi-awarded singer, songwriter, and record producer Robin Thicke to join the celebration and perform his global hits on The Fountain stage.
Also wowing the audience are Asia’s Got Talent finalist and Filipino classical singer Gerphil Flores and the 40-piece Manila Philharmonic Orchestra.
The host of the grand unveiling event is none other than Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach herself, to get people even more enthralled by this highly anticipated event.
New Philippine Tourism Icon Beautifully situated at the heart of the 44-hectare integrated resort, The Fountain is set to join the ranks of Manila’s most iconic landmarks, attracting thousands of tourists from both local and international markets.
The Fountain has 739 water nozzles, including WET’s proprietary underwater robots, 2,611 colored lights, and 23 speakers across a 9.2 acre man-made fountain lake. The fountain’s design was inspired by the many festive traditions and holidays of the Philippines, as well as the national flower, the eight-petaled Sampaguita, whose name means “I promise you.”

WET thought this evoked a sense of romance and the promise of good fortune not just for gaming enthusiasts, but a bright future for the Philippines as well. The Fountain demonstrates the hospitable and loving attributes of the Philippines, and provides a suitable landmark and destination for both locals and tourists.
At the flower’s center, water jets soar high, which allow for the projection of abstract videos from two sides of The Fountain. This is synced with The Fountain’s performance to create a breathtakingly unique world-class entertainment experience that one can only have at Okada Manila.
The show is enhanced with a highly immersive projection mapping onto the gleaming glass surface of the 800m-long crystal corridor surrounding The Fountain for a whimsical augmented and interactive reality.
The Fountain Show will be available to guests of all ages for FREE starting April 1. Spectators may visit the Okada Manila website to view the daily schedules of the Fountain, LED Mapping, and World of Wonders shows.
