Marina Bay Sands Resort – Singapore
If you like futuristic, “out-of-the-box” architecture, then you must see the Marina Bay Sands Resort – Singapore, when you travel to Southeast Asia. The three 55 story hotel towers are shaped like open decks of playing cards. Why, you ask? Because one of the features of the Marina Bay Sands Resort – Singapore is the world’s largest casino.
This image shows the three hotel towers (notice the open deck of playing cards look) and depicts the “skypark” above the 55 th floors of the complex. The skypark offers an infinity pool, bar and lounge areas, as well as a fabulous view of the other parts of the resort below. The end of the skypark is cantilevered 220 from the edge of the third tower.
The Marina Bay Sands “skypark” features a 490 foot
infinity pool, bar and lounge area. Note the 220 foot
cantilevered end of the “skypark”.
The resort also features walking paths, a sculpture garden and a lighted Ferris wheel (see it in the night shot above).
I love daring, contemporary architecture and have seen many examples of this around the world, but I have never seen anything more daring and phenomenal than the Marina Bay Sands Resort-Singapore. When we arrived in Singapore, we were so tired from the trip from the U.S. that we were going to spend the day resting. We decided to hop on one of the “hop-on-hop-off” buses just to relax and see the city. When we arrived at the Marina Bay Sands Resort we were so enthralled with what we saw that we ended up spending the whole afternoon exploring this amazing resort. It is truly a work of art and a one of a kind development. It is not to be missed when visiting Singapore.
