Imposing, majestic and just plain tall, the Marina Bay Sands complex is every thing you could ask for in a highrise hotel. Built in 2010 and designed by Safdie Architects it dominates the skyline of this stunning city. For me and my loved ones, it was the initial cease on a trip to Greece, designed to break up the torturous 18 hour or so trip. We didn’t know what to anticipate as we truly hadn’t heard something about it (living beneath a rock obviously) so our minds had been open. What we found was a noisy, huge, buzzing and definitely breathtaking hotel…. three towers and more than 2500 rooms of breathtaking hotel.
Our complimentary shuttle bus took us from Changi International Airport to the hotel, and arriving at ten:30pm to examine in we had been nevertheless greeted by crowds of individuals out and about. There are bars, shops, restaurants and two separate verify in and concierge counters all in the foyer of the hotel. Underneath the complex, and directly accessible by at least three sets of escalators is a massive purchasing complicated full with ice skating rink, theatre and a massive casino. Of course, immediately after our flight, our main priority was obtaining to our room for some considerably needed shower and shut eye. What we discovered when we entered literally knocked our tired tiny socks off!
Upon entry, the block out blinds automatically open to reveal an wonderful city skyline. Take a handful of methods in and you’re greeted with an entry hall complete with a coffee machine and then a couple more steps reveal the walk in closet and large bathroom.
Tall ceilings, sliding wooden doors and perfectly completed interiors are heaven to a weary traveller. Our space also had an workplace full with fax, scanner, printer and full world wide web connectivity. Quite handy!
The youngsters had a sofa bed that they thought was just the greatest and we had an wonderful king size pillow of fluff to sleep on! Oh why don’t they make beds like this to get!
