Instagramageddon: Take a look inside the hotel with the world’s most jaw-dropping pool and awe-inspiring casino
If the seven wonders of the world translated into hotels, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore would be one of them. Having established itself as the city’s most iconic landmark since its opening almost a decade ago, people from all corners of the globe book themselves into this striking five-star hotel so they can access the hotel’s largest infinity pool that floats 57 floors up over the metropolis below.
Situated on the waterfront, Marina Bay Sands is a destination itself and far beyond what you would expect from an average hotel stay. Composing of three cascading hotel towers topped by its extraordinary sky park, ‘floating’ crystal pavilions and a lotus-inspired museum, here also is retail therapy at your fingertips with a collection of international luxury brands alongside celebrity chef restaurants, entertainment at the theatres, night clubs and of course its famous Las Vegas-style casino.
Orbiting the glimmer of one of the world’s largest Swarovski crystal chandeliers, the Marina Bay Sands Casino is made up of 5,000 square meters of gaming space across four floors. Widely considered one of the world’s most luxurious casinos, here there are a total of 2,300 slots and 500 gambling tables paired with high quality entertainment.
From table to slot games, some of the world’s most talented professional gamblers travel specifically to this distinguished casino. And it’s easy to see why with its extensive offering of high end casino games such as 7 UP Baccarat, which is exclusively only for hotel guests, and Blackjack Lucky 8, which is a new and exciting additional Blackjack side wager that’s easy to both play and win big on.
As well as providing classic casino games like roulette and poker, the hotel has also just introduced Power 98 Baccara and the much-hyped ‘Megalink Singapore Stud Poker’, a poker variation based on five card stud, linked with other poker games to create a single mega jackpot pool. However, before you hit the 5,000 square meters of gaming space at this five-star hotel, we suggest taking on the online casinos first, as these allow even the most seasoned of gamers to sharpen up their skills prior to the real deal. Ideal for gearing up without the fear of significant loss, there are plenty of low deposit casinos available to choose from online that offer the most lucrative casino bonuses and even free spins.
Marking its territory as one the world’s finest casino hotels, Marina Bay Sands has a portfolio of restaurants to match its awe-inspiring casino. A destination where the keenest of gamers need not leave the allure of the hotel, there is a dining offering for every occasion and personal preference. Embodying fragrances and flavours on a vast international scale, Marina Bay Sands showcases some of the finest Asian delicacies alongside Western favourites.
For taste travellers looking to truly sample all Asia has to offer, with a concept that surrounds a modern take on the vibrant izakaya is Adrift by David Myers, whilst a manifestation of all things Cantonese is Canton Paradise, which dishes up all-day dim sum, roast meats, Hong Kong-style congee and wok-fried Cantonese dishes.
For those seeking a taste of home, a familiar name also resides here at Marina Bay Sands. From fish and chips, to beef wellington, scotch eggs and classic roasts, Gordon Ramsay has truly made his mark with his Bread Street Kitchen restaurant, whilst from the refined streets of Paris is Angelica with its famed L’Africain Hot Chocolate that is made from three kinds of cocoa from Niger, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. The collection of restaurants even includes a concept where these international styles of cooking meet as one. With his unique take on ‘Franco-Asian’ cooking, is Justin Quek’s exclusive fine-dining restaurant Chinoiserie Modern Asian.
With the most basic rooms starting at around £200, and the presidential suite averaging a cool £10,000 a night, a stay here doesn’t come cheap. Suites are decorated with European furnishings and Italian stone, but the biggest draw are the floor-to-ceiling glass windows with views spreading across the Central Business District and the super trees at nearby Gardens By The Bay. Enjoy luxury at it’s finest at Marina Bay Sands, and trust us when we say that you will not want to leave.
