Okada Manila joins Earth Hour with eco-friendly initiatives

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Okada Manila will be participating in the Biggest Hour for Earth, aligning with millions globally for the critical cause of protecting the planet.

On March 23, Okada Manila will power down its exterior lighting and the iconic Fountain to observe Earth Hour from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. The hotel will also dim its lights in its Coral and Pearl lobbies, wellness centers (The Retreat Spa and The Sole Retreat), and other areas within the integrated resort.

“By turning off our facilities and amenities for just an hour, we conserve energy and save a significant
amount of electricity in our operations. These small, yet impactful, actions demonstrate our commitment to sparking positive environmental change,” said Byron Yip, President and Chief Operating Officer of Okada Manila.


This year, Earth Hour invites everyone to dedicate an hour to engaging in enjoyable activities that benefit the planet. To commemorate the Biggest Hour for Earth, restaurant and hotel guests can savor complimentary beverages in our dining outlets and on the gaming floors. La Piazza, known for its exquisite Italian cuisine, will offer a special three-course, sustainable dinner by candlelight. Additionally, Medley Buffet will feature a vegan station and Earth Hour-themed pastries. The PLAY Kids’ Club is set to entertain with an indoor bonfire and storytelling from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m.

“We each have a role in fostering change and must act together. As a Forbes 5-Star-rated property and a premier integrated resort in the Philippines, Okada Manila stands united with the global community in advocating for the preservation of Earth. We aim to establish exemplary standards for society, not only for today’s betterment, but also for the benefit of future generations,” concluded Byron.

Earth Hour symbolizes a united front that brings people together, highlighting the urgent need to address nature loss and the climate crisis. It motivates millions to take action and advocate for significant changes. Each year, the initiative strives to transform a single hour of solidarity into countless hours of environmental advocacy and action.
