Are you afraid of extreme heights? Are you comfortable with lounging in a beach chair on top of a skyscraper? Do you trust a giant swimming pool that is perched at over 600 feet above the ground? These are all questions that you should be asking yourself if you want to spend some of your R & R time at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

This hotel has 2,561 rooms and suites in 55 floors beneath the Sands SkyPark, a 1.2 hectare area for guests to relax atop the cityscape. The hotel boasts to be one of the most complex hotels ever built with the towers at points sloping as steep as 26 degrees. The SkyPark is large enough to fit 3 football fields or four and a half A380 jumbo jets, whichever sounds bigger to you…go with it.
This behemoth was built faster than any other building of its size in Singapore, with a new floor being completed every four days. It does not get much better than this for luxury. The Hotel has views of both the South China Sea and the Marina Bay, but of course is one of the best places to view the Singapore skyline.
For those seeking luxury, there are 230 luxury suites. They come with butler service and privileged access to the VIP areas. It is the largest hotel in Singapore and because of it, those VIPs have the ability to stay in at the hotel with 24-hour room service, and a choice of over 30 different restaurants, lounges and snack bars.
What else, you ask? How about a casino, shows, clubs, bars, a shopping mall, skating rink, and Sampan rides. In a city like Singapore with tons of attractions, culture, and excitement, this place is an island in itself. With its sheer size and amount that is packed inside, you could take a vacation from Singapore inside. So be careful, while the SkyPark might be intimidating for those afraid of heights, you also might want to get a map so you don’t get lost inside.
