Robert De Niro Wants You to Visit Manila

Say hello to the award-winning actor in Manila.

Robert De Niro wants you check out his spot in the Philippines.

The Oscar-winning actor opened Nobu Hotel in Manila with partners Nobu Matsuhisa and Meir Teper in May. The 321-room hotel in Manila Bay area’s City of Dreams complex is the first Nobu Hotel in Asia.

The first Nobu Hotel opened in Las Vegas in 2013 and Manila is their first stop to global expansion. The company plans to open eight more hotels in North America, London and the Middle East in the next two years.

Nobu Hotel CEO Trevor Horwell said that the company wants to grow more in Asia but will do so selectively. The PH capital hotel should eventually help the country by drawing tourists to the area.

Now, De Niro thinks that real physical presence is very important. “To me you have to do more than lend your name, you gotta be there in order to just be more a part of it and really believe in it,” De Niro told reporters.

Obviously, he wants you to see him there.
