Glamorous Hotel Finds: The Winford Manila Resort and Casino

Mr. Ryan Rabe, Director of Hotel Operations at Winford Manila Resort and Casino, personally welcomes Monch Henares of MonchsterChronicles.com and I, at the spacious and elegant hotel lobby.

Who would've thought that a casino hotel could be family-oriented? If you want to play, listen to live music and dance to familiar tunes, and yet bring the family along to enjoy the hotel's spacious bedroom and five-star facilities, you do not have to look very far. Winford Manila Resort and Casino has everything in your leisure list.


Classy and comfortable with a king-sized bed in a deluxe room.

Winford Manila offers world-class indulgences for the entire family. It boasts of elegantly-appointed rooms with breath-taking views of Metro Manila. It has restaurants that serves delicious buffet meals, a fitness gym, grand event halls, and of course a sprawling heated swimming pool where every member of the family can relax, and sip cool drinks at the deck bar.

I had the privilege to stay here for a few weeks during the summer, as a mermaid swimming instructor. Following the goal to make the hotel family-friendly, I held mermaid swimming lessons for guests, both for children and adults.  It was a fun recreation activity, where guests fulfill their dreams of becoming a mermaid.  For more about Mermaid Arabelle, please click here. The heated pool of Winford Manila was just the perfect venue for this magical experience.

The 25-meter heated pool is one of the hotel's assets.  The pool design is enhanced during the evening with colorful lights in the background. A Pool Deck Bar offers cool drinks, plus snacks to complete your pool-side needs.

Hippodrome Bar

For one Saturday every month, Winford Manila treats its guests to an evening of free entertainment from some of the country's finest acts; Dulce, Joey G., Freestyle, and Comedy Manila are only some of the performers who have recently graced the stage.
