Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Hello everyone! We stayed in Marina Bay Sands for one night when we were in Singapore. It was a wonderful experience!

The resort includes a 2,561-room hotel, a 120,000-square-metre (1,300,000 sq ft) convention-exhibition centre, the 74,000 m2 (800,000 sq ft) The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall, a museum, two large theatres, “celebrity chef” restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, art-science exhibits, and the world’s largest atrium casino with 500 tables and 1,600 slot machines (Wikipedia).

Our room was on the 20th floor of the first tower. Here’s the view from our room.

A distinctive feature of the hotel is the SkyPark, a three-acre park on top of the building with swimming pools, gardens, and jogging paths. The structure bridges all three towers with a segment cantilevered off the north tower. The hull of the SkyPark was pre-fabricated off-site in 14 separate steel sections and then assembled on top of the towers. (Wikipedia)

The SkyPark has the world’s longest elevated swimming pool, with a 146-metre (478 ft)vanishing edge, called infinity pool located 191 metres above ground. The pools are made up of 422,000 pounds of stainless steel and can hold 376,500 gallons (1424 cubic metres) of water. The SkyPark also has rooftop celebrity chef restaurants, nightclubs, gardens, hundreds of trees and plants, and a public observatory deck on the cantilever with 360-degree views of the Singapore skyline.

We had breakfast on the rooftop. It was delightful!

Singapore at night!

  1. Wow. Spectacular in every way, especially at night.
    My fear of heights would probably hinder my ability to fully enjoy the views, much less the infinity pool, but I am glad you did and shared it with us!
