PH Resorts Group’s Emerald Bay casino resort is set to open before the end of the year despite difficult market conditions.

The company said the new resort will target Asia’s growing gaming market. 

“The company believes that Emerald Bay will be able to take advantage of this strong demand by providing an attractive gaming option for Philippine and regional mass market and VIP players, with its combination of high-end design, varied gaming and non-gaming offerings, five-star amenities and high-quality customer service,” said the company. 

PH Resorts said it will be pushing for a soft opening by the end of 2021, whilst it will be fully complete in the second quarter of 2022.
