Extravagance and glamour are on full display at this newly opened entertainment hub in Okada Manila. Cove Manila has been the talk of the town recently being the biggest indoor beach club and nightclub in Southeast Asia with luxury cabanas and private hot tubs for over-the-top private parties. With the fusion of music, style, and dining under one iconic dome, this is definitely a great addition to the wide selection of clubs in Manila.
I had a chance to enjoy their nightclub and their selection of beverages last month but the beach club was closed during my visit so I told myself that I need to be back to enjoy the pool and the indoor beach. And I had my chance last week when a friend invited me to visit Cove on a daytime as they are open from 1 PM onwards on Sundays. And I finally got a dose of summer at Cove Manila!
And for those who can’t really take much of a holiday, this beach club is the closest to home!
Here’s a guide to help you enjoy this glamorous party destination.
INDOOR BEACH CLUB
Cove Manila is located inside Okada Manila, a casino that will spoil you with rich leisure options in the entertainment district of Parañaque. It occupies 44 hectares facing the Manila Bay that can accommodate 4,500 guests becoming the biggest indoor beach club by day and party destination by night. It is enclosed in a 9,000sqm. glass dome that’s UVA and UVB protected. The structure costs $120M and has opened its doors in December 2017.
This place is such a tropical dream come true. It has a beach vibe with palm trees scattered all over the resort complex with a swim-up bar and a pool with a unicorn and other pool floaters. The best part is its temperature controlled glass dome bringing your favorite season for the rest of the year.
We occupied a round lounge sofa for just Php1000 that’s fully consumable. There’s plenty of poolside seating with water-resistant upholstery for comfortable lounging after taking a dip to their warm pool. And with UVA and UVB-protective dome, you can stay and party by the beach without worrying about getting a sunburn.
There are 29 roomy cabanas that can be rented for your own private party space. Depending on the capacity you need, cabanas can accommodate 15 to 50 people. Each room comes equipped with big LCD screens, stylish furniture pieces, Japanese style toilets with rain showers and a private hot tub that will give you a view of the dome.
But sophistication comes with a hefty price tag. Cabana prices can range from Php150k or Php350k per night, all consumable, depending on the event. Their most expensive cabana has a living room, a dining room, a private bar, a karaoke machine and a private hot tub. And of course, they will enjoy a VIP treatment with this huge amount spent for a night
With their state of the art entertainment amenities, Cove Manila comes packed with everything you’d want from a club: advanced lighting technologies, live music from international DJs, high-quality video and a dance floor that’s big enough for you to get your groove on.
It boasts a Tony Andrews’ Funktion-One high-resolution sound system that’s one of the best in the world in delivering quality sounds and a unique six-ring kinetic centerpiece that produces 10,000 special effects that rotate and tilts for a one of a kind club experience.
They also have taken the entertainment aspect of the club to the next level by matching aerial acrobatics and themed exhibitions with over-the-top tech visuals. Definitely changing the party sceneries in the country! And what I like more is they create a kind of production that people from all walks of life will enjoy. I can’t wait to see what this place has to offer next!
There are 5 bars where you can get your drinks from. We got a cosmopolitan drink for Php480 and a cocktail drink for Php440. They also serve local beers for as low as Php180.
