Marina Bay Sands: 21st Century Stonehenge



Rising like a 21st-century Stonehenge, Marina Bay Sands Hotel is an integrated hotel resort that comprises three hotel towers connected by a sky terrace on the roof, the Sands SkyPark. Things in Singapore do not come any bigger than the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Why? It has 2,561 luxury rooms and the triple towers are joined by the world’s biggest cantilever roof by a huge boat like a platform that serves as a resort. The sky park as it is called has restaurants, gardens, an observation deck and an enormous 150-meter Marina Bay Sands infinity pool. It is an iconic landmark that can be seen from miles away. Moreover, it is the best place to witness to sunset view mixed with skyline of the Lion City.

Marina Bay Sands: 21st Century Stonehenge-1 At a cost of US$5.7 billion, Marina Bay Sands was developed by Las Vegas Sands, and we all know that Las Vegas has always done things on a whole new level which is always over the top. This luxury hotel was created as the centerpiece of an entirely new area of the city-state, reclaimed from the sea. Such a huge amount of costing is because of the price of the prime waterfront land, the hotel was called the world's most expensive building. That's because it's not just a hotel, it's an experience. Here are the key reasons why one should stay at Marina Bay Sands once in their lifetime and with Shoes on Loose's Singapore tour package make the most of it.
