The massive Marina Bay Sands complex encompasses 2,561 hotel rooms and suites, a shopping mall, a casino, a museum and dining options galore, including outposts from global celebrity chefs ranging from Daniel Boulud to Guy Savoy. Its crowning glory is the rooftop Skypark on level 57, with an infinity-edge pool, an observation deck, and nightclubs and restaurants. Hotel rooms are calm oases, with pale color palettes, separate sitting areas and work desks.
In the Area
The resort is so full-service and extensive that it would be easy to enjoy a Singapore vacation without ever leaving the grounds. The ArtScience Museum is devoted to art, science, media, design, architecture, and technology, and occupies a distinctive lotus-blossom-shaped structure. The downstairs mall, the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, includes an ice-skating rink and canals for sampan tours. One attraction worth leaving the resort grounds for (though you can probably see them from your room) is Singapore’s new Supertrees, vertical gardens that soar some 150 feet high.
How to Get There
This was a very plush hotel. The infinity pool is jaw dropping. A short walk from the marina with amazing views and restaurants. I am vegan and found it a little difficult in the hotel but a short walk round the corner found a Gordon Ramsay with a full vegan menu option. There is a mall on the ground full of beautiful shops and cafés. The bars are fairly expensive but I suppose you expect this in a luxury venue. The room we had was garden view and man, what a garden. The botanical gardens are right outside and at night looked magical. Thoroughly recommend this hotel, you must get in that pool, cold as it is. The photographers are there on call but there are beds around the pool you can rest your phone/camera on. Towels are handed out and cocktails are available, as are nibbles. Breathtaking.
We booked and stayed at a Club King room for 3 nights (as suggested by many on Trip Advisor) - this turned out to be a great decision. The room is spacious and can easily fit 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children). We also had access to the Club55 for breakfast, while there were usually queues at other restaurants.
The view from the room was just simply breathtaking.
The indefinite pool at the top is great but always full - it is difficult to even take a photo without others in it...
No kids club nor any kids playing facilities in the hotel - which was disappointing.
We had a 2 night stay at the Sands prior to our 12 day cruise to Tokyo. The hotel was very nice food at Spago's was exceptional. However, it was very crowded and more like a Vegas experience. Which is not bad, just not the place to go for a relaxing quiet stay. Rooms were very nice, staff generally friendly. Long lines for most things like breakfast and the roof top pool area. Overall worth a visit once I think.
As we all know about Singapore, this building is just a result of what Singapore is all about. Magnificent. I will certainly will be back and this time I will make sure I will have a chance to swim in their infinity pools
While all 5-Star hotels in Asia offer pretty much the same amenities and level of service it’s still worth the experience of staying at Marina Bay sands.
The hotel itself is a tourist attraction with as many shops and restaurants as you can imagine.
The views are stunning from everywhere, we stayed in a garden view suite which had a lovely patio where we could enjoy morning breakfast overlooking the Gardens by the bay.
The pool is crowded but still worth it to get the perfect picture of you at the infinity pool!
