My Escapes Singapore Bustling, Colourful Singapore The Marina Bay Sands Hotel

The Marina Bay Sands Hotel

The three-skyscraper complex by itself is an attraction, but more so - the beautiful skyline that you can admire from its deck.

I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say that the Marina Bay Sands Hotel is Singapore's most boasting travel attraction.

It was officially opened on April 27th, 2010. I visited it in June 2011.

Although I'm publishing this article roughly 3 years later - I believe it stands the test of time, so no worries, my dear readers!

This is one of those main attractions that you mustn't miss when in Singapore. I personally hunted it down on my very first day!

For the skyline of Singapore, please go to my Marina Bay Singapore panorama page...

This article is about the building itself...

So, it's a triple-skyscraper complex with 2,561 hotel rooms, bars, restaurants and the Shoppes complex ("shoppes" is not "shops" misspelled) - the latter, which is a mall (and quite an expensive one).

The observation deck on top offers splendid views - 360 degree views - all around.

What's most interesting about this building is that the deck (supported by all three skyscrapers) has a swimming pool on it.

It's actually an infinity pool, meaning that its edges were made "invisible".

Those who swim up there must feel like at the edge of heaven!

I didn't, but it must feel great! Still: when you're up there, you might want a bigger swimming pool. To me, the panorama was breathtaking, frenetic - but the pool just could have been a lot larger. It doesn't cover that much of the entire deck, really...

This was and still is the World's most expensive building - having cost 5.7 billion US dollars and built by Las Vegas Sands, an American company.
