Landing Philippines will build NayonLanding, an integrated resort with a planned construction floor area of approximately 610,000 sq.m. and estimated development cost of up to US$1.5billion, featuring Filipino-inspired architecture and interior design that will be the country’s newest entertainment and leisure hotspot by 2022. The development promises a distinctly world-class integrated resort and leisure, culture and entertainment destination with its flagship attraction, the Pilipino Cultural Theme Park. This indoor theme park will educate and inspire visitors to become more immersed with the rich history and beauty of the Philippines, celebrating the country’s natural beauty and culture in an engaging and entertaining way.
“NayonLanding will be an iconic landmark that will highlight Manila as a modern global city with a rich culture and heritage. We are redefining integrated resort as we blend in the local cultures, leisure and entertainment into the development, making it a must-see and a must-experience tourist destination,” said Dr. Yang in his speech at the ceremony. “We are very positive that this development will have significant contributions to the economy and the tourism industry as we envision NayonLanding to create over 40,000 of jobs by 2022, including direct and indirect employment, which most of these jobs are skilled and professional. We will also provide a one-stop experience for millions of local and international tourists in the Philippines, expecting to draw an additional 2.5 million foreign vistors to the Philippines after NayonLanding’s full operation.”
Projected to have at least 1,500 hotel rooms, NayonLanding will provide a diverse offering for local and international tourists. For businesses, NayonLanding will also have state-of-the-art MICE facilities and a 4,000-seater pillar-free grand ballroom fit for large-scale events and conference. Aside from the indoor cultural attraction, a branded indoor movie-theme park with rides and attractions, and one of the world’s largest indoor water theme parks will be expected from NayonLanding.
Opening in 2022, NayonLanding will be a family-oriented resort that promises a distinctly different must-see/must-experience culture, leisure and entertainment destination that will create up to 10,000 jobs and is expected to attract an additional 2 to 3 million foreign visitors to the country.
