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
I was here for a conference and it was a good choice for an event requiring many people to be housed together. Glad however it was on expenses as the on site bars and restaurants are eye watering expensive - at least when paying in GBP. Good location, very comfortable rooms, though very busy indeed, such as queuing for breakfast table. My personal choice would be somewhere a bit more chilled, such as the Fullerton for this part of Singapore. However it’s a matter of personal choice and it was certainly an experience staying here.
Happily to stay in very nice room at the 46th floor in this time likewise our family always be your regular customer visit MBS and enjoy beautiful time here again. It's not only such a charming outdoor view for us to admire, but also we are satisfied with the buffet dinner in the lobby on the first floor. Apart from the delicious and rich food, the attentive and enthusiastic service of the waiter named Win has brought us a wonderful experience. Let us Really realized the highest quality of the MBS from the hotel staff, fully reflects the hotel's incomparable honor and status! We like win's service and hope you continue to hire such good attitude staff!
Large queue to check-in which took some time to go down and no apology for our wait - Not expected at a 5 star hotel.
Room was very big with ample space and was very clean. The views of the Garden's by the Bay were outstanding.
Hotel was not too busy compared to others like the Venetian, perhaps because some attractions such as the observatory deck are separate to the infinity pool.
The pool is definitely the other highlight of this hotel, whilst the child-friendly side was extremely busy, the adults only area was quiet with many loungers.
A couple of negatives: Service did not meet expectations of a 5-star premium hotel such as a 10% service charge on all food and drinks. The service in the dining areas and by the pool was very poor and slow; Including one very poor experience at the rooftop restaurant "Lavo".
Also be aware that the minibar will automatically charge you if you remove something and place it back, there are warnings on the inside but it is easy to miss them.
Overall a great experience however having stayed at other hotels in Singapore the price is hard to justify.
