Discover Marina Bay Sands
Marina Bay Sands is an Integrated Resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. Developed by Las Vegas Sands, it is billed as the world's most expensive standalone casino property at S$8 billion, including cost of the prime land.
There's a lot you can do with $8 billion, and the Marina Bay Sands may have just done them all. Touted as the world's most expensive casino this 2,561 room integrated resort lavishly offers nearly anything that a visitor could ever need on their stay in Singapore.
In addition to the 500 tables and 1,600 slots which comprise the atrium casino, the Marina Bay Sands has also opted to include an ice-skating rink, two entertainment theatres, the 300-store Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands shopping mall, an art science museum and a full range of evening entertainment and shows.
There is also an impressive, 478 foot (145.7 meter) long infinity swimming pool which gazes out over the Singapore skyline at the aptly named SkyPark - an observation deck which stretches longer than the Eiffel Tower were it laid down. Swimmers with a fear of heights beware: the 'infinity' edge looks out over a 55-story drop to the street level below.
Shoppers, meanwhile, will have an easier go of it. If you don't feel like walking from shop to shop there is always the option of hopping on a sampan boat to cruise to the other end of the shopping complex on the mall's meandering canal.
Hungry during your stay? You could spend almost an entire week eating dinner at restaurants featuring the work of celebrity chefs - without eating at the same place twice. With six such restaurants occupying the hotel grounds these iconic eateries highlight a complex that houses over 14 fine dining establishments and 20 smaller places to grab a bite to eat.
There also aren't any shortages of late-night venues where partygoers can either chill out poolside to the beats of international deejays spinning trendy house music, or disappear deep inside one of the two nightclubs springing from the crystal pavilions which seem to float effortlessly on the waters of the bay.
Decadent in its luxury and catering to those with a lavish lifestyle, there truly is nothing in Singapore - and possibly the world - quite like the Marina Bay Sands.
