First Look: 'The Island' Brings Summer Forever With its Nightlife Market and 9 Concepts

We bid Pool Club a farewell and now welcome a forever summer with The Island, featuring 9 new food and drink concepts that give guests more options to choose from when craving for a nightcap or a fun night out.

The Island takes a more casual and carefree style of nightlife, so kick back and relax. Strict dress codes do not apply and shorts are definitely welcome.

The Island encourages you to explore its different stalls and spots, and to make it more convenient, the entire property is on a cashless system.

The Wristband is your key to accessing The Island and to buy food and drink inside

Guests can purchase a Wristband at the entrance for P50 and this will be their key (like a debit card) for purchasing food and drink -- it's also something you can keep and bring home with you so you can reuse each time you visit The Island. The wristband can be loaded in P100 denominations, and three reloading stations are located inside The Island so you can top up, check your balance, or fast track your order. The Wristband can only be used by adults 18 years old and above.

The Wristband is accepted at all stations and bars of The Island

Once you have your wristband secured and loaded with credit, it's time to explore the different food and drink offerings at The Island!
