One of the highlights of our vacation in Singapore was our stay at Marina Bay Sands. Since its inception in 2010, the hotel has been one of the most frequented tourist spots in Singapore. Like its counterpart in Macao, the Venetian Hotel, Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort hotel. The hotel has a casino, shopping centre, convention centre, and of course, its pride, the Infinity Pool. The Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands has proven itself worthy to be on the same level as Sentosa, Merlion, and Universal Studios when talking about the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore.
The regular suite is just 39 square metres which isn’t the largest in Singapore, but, the popularity of Infinity Pool has attracted tourists from all over the world. Marina Bay Sands’ Infinity Pool is the largest in the world and located at its rooftop, 57 levels above. Singapore has a magnificent skyline that rooftop restaurants and the Singapore Flyer are the hottest spots for people wanting to get an amazing view of the city. So, imagine you are at the top of the world, overlooking an awesome skyline while swimming, would that get any better?
Infinity Pool is just one of the three features of Marina Bay Sands SkyPark. Observation Deck and Restaurants and Bars Area are the other two. You need to be staying at the hotel to be able to use the Infinity Pool, but the Observation Deck and the Restaurants are open for public. The pool is open from 6am until 11pm, and it’s ideal to take a swim early in the morning or around afternoon. You would not want to get a severe sunburnt during the middle of the day, would you?. Pool decks are available for sun bathing and cold drinks would complement the moment. It is not an exaggeration to say that you can practically enjoy the pool for as long as you want. The view with a good book while sipping some cold beverage is the perfect way to go.
If you are not an in-house guest, but, eager to see the picturesque view of Singapore, then, Observation Deck is one perfect place. Marina Bay Sands is located at almost a perfect site where it is surrounded by other tall buildings, Singapore Flyer, and Garden by the Bay. All of these can be viewed from the top.

Gone are the days when street partying is the coolest in town, they take it on a higher level now, literally. Rooftop restaurants and Bars are the “in thing” for people of all ages now. Marina Bay Sands has not one but 3 rooftop restaurants and one bar and lounge. Cuisines vary from Asian to Western cuisines prepared by outstanding chefs whose only goal is to serve the perfect meal. Cozy up with your friends on any of these restaurants and bars.
