Marina Bay Sands Review
A Singaporean icon, Marina Bay has drawn oohs and ahs for its dazzling architecture and its stunning facilities. Equally important is its location across the bay from Singapore's CBD. Each of the sumptuously appointed rooms has floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views of the city skyline or the South China Sea. As if that weren't enough, the entire three-tower mega-structure is capped by a 3-acre (1.2-hectare) SkyPark, where there's a large pool. Also on offer are a casino, two theaters, 300 shops, and 50 restaurants. The building may be iconic, but its amateurish, art "light" exhibitions leave much to be desired.
Paradise in the Sky
Singapore is no stranger to mind-boggling luxury, but the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort takes things to the next level—literally. The hotel's three 55-story towers, which dominate the view of Singapore's Marina Bay, are capped by a monumental, open-air SkyPark. At its heart, set among the restaurants, gardens, and ultra-cool club and lounge, is a jewel-like infinity pool that gazes across the bay at Singapore's glittering skyline. The rest of the resort's offerings, from its celebrity chef restaurants, to its luxury spa, casino, theaters, myriad shops, and iconic Arts Science Museum, are similarly built to impress. But like some exotic bird of paradise, Marina Bay Sands stands out for its elaborate headdress.
