Marina Bay Sands is a fairly recent addition to Singapore’s ever-growing city skyline, but it is already somewhat of an icon. The three skyscrapers have – what seems to be – a cruise ship balancing precariously across the top. In fact, this is one of the highlights of Marina Bay Sands Hotel: a huge, rooftop pool with sweeping views of Singapore, with a viewpoint and a fancy rooftop club at one end.
Other highlights include:
- A stunning five-star hotel with over 2,500 rooms
- A luxury shopping mall with faux-canals and Italian gondola rides
- Singapore’s largest ice skating rink
- A rooftop viewpoint
- Two nightclubs
- A host of fantastic restaurants
- One of the world’s most expensive casinos
The location of Marina Bay Sands is another plus point as the MRT underground is close by and you can walk to several of Sinagpore’s top attractions, such as Gardens by the Bay, the Merlion, and the ArtScience Museum. For a more in-depth guide, check out what you’ll find in Marina Bay Sands below.

Marina Bay Sands SkyPark
Marina Bay Sands SkyPark really offers a taste of the highlife by viewing Singapore from above. This large wooden decked area on top of iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel at the edge of the city’s harbour offers a 360-degree panorama, with nothing but a sheet of glass and a few wires between you and the view.
Marina Bay Sands Casino
Opened in 2010, the $5.5 billion casino resort Marina Bay Sands is the second casino in Singapore. Featuring an area of 15,000sqm, the actual casino area comprises less than 3% percent of the integrated resort’s gross floor area. Other facilities include many restaurants, lots of shopping and meeting-and-convention facilities. Entry is free for foreigners.
The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
The Shoppes is the flagship shopping mall in the epic Marina Bay Sands complex, offering a host of luxury brands from across the world. Home to hundreds of shops, high-end restaurants, cafes, bars, and fun attractions, this is unashamedly catering to the exclusive end of the market. Notable fashion brands on sale at The Shoppes Singapore include Alexander McQueen, Armani, Dior, Hugo Boss, Bottega Veneta, as well as a range of jewellery and watch brands such as Audemars Piguet, Bvlgari, and Chopard.
Bread Street Kitchen
Gordon Ramsey’s long-awaited Bread Street Kitchen opened at Marina Bay Sands halfway through 2015, and promises an informal dining experience alongside modern European food, with signature touches from the multi-Michelin star affiliated chef. Located in Singapore’s most iconic building – Marina Bay Sands – this was always going to be a classy affair, no matter how much Ramsey claims the whole dining experience is ‘informal’. The snazzy black and white tiled floor, exposed ceiling and comfy leather booths all help to create an exclusive ‘New York loft’ feel, but the good news is that the a la carte menu is actually sensibly priced – a bit of a rarity for celebrity chef restaurants in Singapore.
CE LA VI Singapore
CE LA VI bar (formerly KU DE TA) enjoys one of the best views in Singapore. Its location on the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands offers uninterrupted views of the city and bay. With a cocktail costing around the same price as entry to Marina Bay Sands observation desk and CE LA VI’s slightly more elevated location, it has quickly become one of Singapore’s hottest rooftop venues. For those not lucky enough to be staying at the Marina Bay Sands hotel, a few drinks at CE LA VI Singapore is a perfect way to enjoy a little of the luxury this iconic building has to offer.
ArtScience Museum Singapore
Shaped like an outstretched hand – or perhaps even a bunch of bananas – the ArtScience Museum sits on the waterfront in the shadow of Marina Bay Sands, and provides the city with ever changing displays, from Dali to Harry Potter. A place of great interest for children and adults, a visit here is both entertaining and educational, exploring the links between art and science. The gallery is impossible to miss, on the bay side walkway of the famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel, ten minutes’ walk from Bayfront MRT Station.
