Marina Bay Sands Skypark


Have you heard of Sands chain of hotel? Yeah! Like the one in Las Vegas, but this one is in Asia ie Singapore's latest tourist addition. Yup! Looks like a Noah ark just landed on 3 buildings.
Been here since last Thursday and flying off today (Saturday) to Beijing (YUP! Great [fire] Wall of China) and will be flying back to my home sweet home only on Sunday. Argh..... it's no fun as it's a BUSINESS TRIP!

Anyway, I've hearing people raving about this "great hotel" and I have to say, am a liiiiiiiitle bit curious myself. My experience? Check-in took 30-45mins as they unable to find my name (and how are they going to handle 1800 guest from my company beats me!). As I checked into my room.... just like a normal hotel room, seriously! Nothing great! Sooo.. what was the hype I wonder?!??!?!

Which can only mean.... I need to go up to the Skypark on top and check it out. Oh Yeah, the linear pool is located here too. If you are wondering where, it's on "Noah ark"... the next thing you will be wondering, what else is there right?! Well, Kudeta Club is there plus a dining area (breakfast for suite guess).

I have to admit though, the night view is simply....... A.W.E.S.O.M.E!!!!

Not only it's a linear pool BUT BUT BUT... an efinity pool AS WELL! I mean, how cool can you get right?!??!?!? RIGHT??? You must remember that this pool is OVERLOOKING Singapore skyline, sigh...... breathtaking!

Can you see the club at the end.... YUP! Clubbing while getting awesome view of Singapore and....errr....hehehhee....
Other then that..... nothing much I guess.
So, have you been to a building that has a "fancy" view deck on top? But so-so on other area?

OK guys, I need to pack and fly off to Beijing!

I have been to the Skydeck once, and the view is amazing. An uncle of mine was so fascinated with the view that he accidentally stepped and fell into the swimming pool, haha.

This is one of the buildings I truly look forward to see and go atop. Singapore is not famous for supertall skyscrapers or amazing architecture, but this one for me is a masterpiece. I hope there will be more such buildings in the future in Singapore :)

You have a wonderful job, you know, Lily. Ah, yes, you know.

I did not visit so high buildings, sincerely, and am afraid of them. With the changes of climate and so many catastrophes in the last period, I would not build them. Maybe I'm simply claustrophobic...

Ola said...

This architecture is really really amazing! If I just had a chance to swim in the pool...

Lily Riani said...

liudmila,

i agree, at a few instances at the marina bay sands convention centre, i felt a bit of vibration. abit scary seriously.
