Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore

All people can be divided into two categories: those who love hotels, and those who feel more comfortable at home. I adore traveling and staying in new places. In Singapore, the new place turned out to be one of the most beautiful hotels in the world - the famous Marina Bay Sands. A resort hotel in the center of a huge metropolis.

This is one of those places you dream of visiting. I first heard about Marina Bay Sands after a photo of the pool went viral on all social networks. That's when I added a visit to Singapore to my "bucket list."

The hotel's feature is a huge platform supported by three towers, each 200 meters high. The endpoint is located on the 55th floor. The rooftop deck is also huge - over 12,000 square meters. The pool is the longest among ground-level pools in the world, measuring 150 meters in length. On the rooftop, apart from the pool and observation deck, there are clubs, restaurants, and a large park.

For the first time in my life, I found myself in a hotel with such a large number of people. There is almost always a long line at check-in, like at passport control in an airport. This is not surprising, as the hotel itself has over 2500 rooms.

The design of the corridors and room doors is quite tranquil but very stylish. Huge doors, a lot of wood, and soft carpet on the floor create coziness:

I almost always choose hotels based on two main criteria: location and room design. A place like Marina Bay Sands is almost my ideal. No excessive luxury, but clear, straight lines, soft colors, large headboards on the beds, and a breathtaking view from panoramic windows:

This is the view that opens up during the day from a room for $326 per day.

The bathroom is also exquisite, I really like this design:

Let's move on to the most interesting part - the resort with a rooftop pool. The water here is constantly refreshed: it flows into a special water treatment compartment, undergoes filtration, and then returns to the pool.

The water is very warm, almost like in a bath. It is heated in a special compartment and then "sent" warm to the pool.

There's no need to fear falling. Below, right after the pool, there is a terrace where people walk. So, it's not possible to fall far :)

The most popular spots in the restaurants are the terrace located around the perimeter. Strangely, when I came here in the evening with a tripod, they didn't allow me to use it. Supposedly, it's a rule. Most likely, the tourist flow is so huge that if everyone used tripods, real visitors wouldn't be able to see anything:

It's very convenient to relax here with a small group.

Next to the Marina Bay Sands hotel is Gardens by the Bay park. On the left are two conservatories. The first one is called the Flower Dome, where all the plants of the Mediterranean are located. In the second one - the Cloud Forest - tropical plants from Africa, Australia, and South America are collected. Do you see the pond at the bottom of the frame? My DJI Phantom Vision+ quadcopter crashed into it due to a glitch.

Next to the conservatories are the steel trees (Supertree Grove). The height of these artificial trees reaches 50 meters. There is a bridge between them, and observation decks are installed on top. At night, the entire park is illuminated by artificial lights. It looks quite beautiful.

It's wonderful to watch the sunset from the hotel's rooftop:

From the window, you can see practically the largest port in the world. For the residents of Singapore, this is an important place. Besides tourism, maritime freight transport and water cruises are the main sources of income.

With each passing minute, the city transforms before your eyes. The sun sets, and the buildings light up with lights:

Conclusion: it's definitely worth coming here, and under no circumstances should you have breakfast at the hotel. I would stay at this hotel again!
