Review: Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore

Marina Bay Sands

The Marina Bay Sands (MBS) is an iconic building in Singapore. This 57 storey megastructure consist of 3 towers, connected by a vast, curved-surfboard-like deck, the SkyPark. Marina Bay Sands’ 2,561 room hotel is the largest hotel in Singapore, the 6th largest in Asia and the 34th largest in the world. With MBS, Singapore has entered into the “World’s 100 Largest Hotels” list. If you are in Singapore, I would recommend you to stay at MBS for at least a night to experience Singapore’s spectacular skyline.

MBS Lobby

The hotel lobby can be very busy during check-in and check-out period. Being a huge hotel, you can expect a long queues during weekends, school and public holidays. Even though the check-in time is at 3pm, you can try to do it earlier provided if the rooms are available. Did you know that MBS uses approximately 36,000 key cards a month? Lining them up will be as long as 306km – the distance of more than 7 full marathons! All the rooms comes with either Garden or City view.  Of Course, the room with the city view will cost a bit more compared to garden view.

Premier Room

Located in Tower 1 & 2, the Premier Rooms comes with king or two twin beds. The room decor is simple yet stylish with warm colours.

My only disappointment was that my room doesn’t comes with a balcony and has limited view of the Gardens by the Bay.

The 42″ interactive flat-screen television has video on demand too.

 

While the coffee and tea are complimentary, all the items in the MBS minibar are placed on motion sensor. Hence, any item removed from the bar fridge will be automatically charge to your credit card. If you need to use an empty fridge, you can request for it at a minimal fee of S$10.

 

Electronic safe box, ironing, bath robe and bedroom slippers are provided in all rooms.

SkyPark

Skypark

This one-hectare sky oasis features lush greenery, sculptured gardens, remarkable restaurants like Sky on 57 and CÉ LA VI Restaurant and a infinity pool. Each MBS hotel guest are entitled for 2 Key Card which you would have privileged access to the iconic Infinity Pool and Sands SkyPark. Please note that you need the bring along your key card to gain access.

Skypark

Moshe Safdie designed SkyPark which sits atop the 3 towers 200 meters high is a real attention grabber. The space can host up to 3,900 people at a time and the public entrance fee is S$23.

Marina Bay

The SkyPark offers 360-degree views of Singapore’s skyline.

There is no greater feeling like standing at the top of the world. This is one of the best place to witness the sunset in Singapore.

The SkyPark features the largest outdoor infinity pool that almost lets you swim in the clouds.

Infinity Pool

If you planning to dip into the pool, head up early because it can get really crowded especially in the evening.The infinity pool is open from 6.00am to 11.00pm daily.

MBS Lobby I find the price of the room is very expensive compared to other hotels in Singapore. However, the panoramic view of Singapore’s skyline and the infinity pool will do the justice. Truly a 5 stars experience! MBS table MBS Map

  1. Nice hotel!

    Wow this is the first time that I have heard of minibars using motion sensor. So, what if we accidentally taken one can of drink from the minibar? Automatically chargeable is it?
