Marina Bay Sands – where business and leisure merge

Alongside the Marina Bay lies an integrated urban development project that is being spearheaded by the Las Vegas Sands Company. The site as well as the massive construction undertaking puts the cost of the entire Marina Bay Sands project at the 8 Billion Singapore Dollar mark.

The development project consists of 3 hotel towers, of 55 storeys each, with a connecting sky terrace, which is 1 hectare in length. In front of each of the towers lie a convention and exhibition centre, a theatre complex, and a casino. The entire complex is set to be opened, phase by phase, during 2010.

Apart from this, an art/science museum, is to be constructed in the shape of a lotus, and will be built next to the 3 blocks. This unique building will have a retractable roof which provides a natural ‘waterfall’ of accumulated rain water when closed during day. When opened in the night, audiences will be treated to spectacular laser shows.

The connecting roof of the towers will be called Sky Park and will boast of the longest elevated swimming pool in the world. Set at a height of 975 feet, the pools will hold up to 380 000 gallons of water. The hotel towers will consist of 2500 luxury suites and rooms. The casino block will feature over 1000 slot machines and gaming tables. Business travellers will be able to make ample use of the 45 000 capacity convention and exhibition centre, which will be fully modernised and equipped with state of the art facilities. The rest of the complex will cater to high end retail shops, designer brand goods, internationally acclaimed restaurants, and trendy night clubs.

This masterpiece of architecture and modernity is a must see on your next trip to Singapore. If such traveller seeks Singapore hotels, then a hotel such as the Copthorne Orchid Hotel Singapore would be ideal. Its convenient location makes it an ideal hotel in Singapore offering an array of attractive Singapore hotel deals.
