Hotel review: Singapore's Marina Bay Sands

An impressive hotel well beyond the initial view that entices visitors during the 20-minute drive from Changi Airport.

The vision of a giant boat perched atop three giant skyscrapers is nothing less than extraordinary and leaves a lasting impression. 

In fact, the Marina Bay Sands hotel and resort, with its gigantic boat - dubbed the Skypark – is cantilevered across three towers that are 57 stories high. 

Accommodation

From a deluxe room right up to a presidential or chairman suite, all rooms include access to the infinity pool and Sands SkyPark with incredible views of the skyscrapers across the city.

All rooms are also granted access to the Banyan Tree Fitness Club, gym on the 55th floor. A choice of views includes overlooking the botanical gardens, harbour, city or "sky view".

The deluxe is 39sqm and includes a spacious bathroom with glass-enclosed shower, while the chairman suite spans 629m2 with floor-to-ceiling windows, four luxury bedrooms, four spacious bathrooms and three furnished balconies.

The resort has more than 80 dining options including nine celebrity chef restaurants across the integrated resort.

Celebrity chef restaurants include Adrift by David Myers, Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay, CUT by Wolfgang Puck, Bistro & Oyster Bar by Daniel Boulud, Long Chim by David Thompson, Osteria Mozza by Nancy Silverton, Pizzeria Mozza by Nancy Silverton, Spago by Wolfgang Puck, Waku Ghin by Tetsuya Wakuda.

Meetings space

Marina Bay Sands has top business and meeting facilities with world-class hospitality and entertainment options. It is located in Singapore's business district with world-class hotel accommodation, entertainment, restaurants, nightlife and shopping in one integrated resort.

It also has a long and proven track record in accommodating major regional and international events, hosting up to 45,000 delegates across more than 30,000sqm of flexible exhibition space. Flexibility means planners can customise meetings of any size and type with over 20 ballrooms and 250 meeting rooms.

The Grand Ballroom can also be configured into 16 rooms to hold smaller groups of a few hundred people.

Location

The hotel sits next to the ArtScience Museum, a building that looks like the splayed petals of a lotus flower, or the upturned palm of a hand. The building is an iconic presence along the waterfront and offers up a programme of exhibitions, events performances and education activities.

Marvel at the Garden Rhapsody light shows at the Gardens by the Bay. Its futurist botanic garden is full of whimsy, Supertrees that look like they have fallen from the screen of a computer game, and bio-domes that complete this space-age fantasy.

The CÉ LA VI Restaurant and SkyBar are perched some 200m in the sky at the pinnacle of the resort. It has some of the most stunning views of Singapore’s skyline, and this bar has to be one of the world’s best places to sip on a glass of champagne.
