Add a Point to the Map

Prior to the opening of Marina Bay Sands, Singapore's swanky hotel and Integrated Resort located in the Marina Bay Colonial District, where a night’s stay costs more than S$400, there was plenty of hoo-hah – whether the casino encourages gambling and would it increase the island's crime rate, etc.

The debate still continues while the hotel basks in constant spotlight, over its breathtaking SkyPark and reported inefficiency of the hotel concierge, amongst other things.

The SkyPark is a focal point for the hotel, which charges S$20 for admission. The fee takes you to the top of the hotel, hovering above 60 storeys, where the 360-degree view of the whole of Singapore is commanding. The SkyPark links to the hotel’s infinity pool, which has garnered worldwide attention. It is however limited to hotel guests only.

The rooms are spacious and modern, though not as impressive as the hotel's architecture itself. All rooms, even if of the same category, range in sizes because of the building's unique curved silhouette. Different rooms offer different views, some of Marina Barrage and some of the Marina Bay district. There are three types of rooms which start from S$449+ . There are 12 types of suites at the luxury hotel, with the Orchid Suite costing S$869.

The hotel's staff are mostly friendly, greeting visitors with a simple greeting and smile. Book well in advance as the hotel lobby is often crowded, and complaints have been voiced about the hotel’s lack of efficiency.
