SINGAPORE: MARINA BAY SANDS- HOTEL REVIEW
I stayed here in July 2012 as part of a work conference. I had a premier room on the 5th floor which also had a large balcony. The rooms are enormous with nice decor. I had a twin room with 2 double beds. If you want a separate shower and a bath you need to book premier and above. The bathroom is marble with a double vanity and a toilet inside the bathroom with a separate door. My only criticism is the shower area which is separated by a glass partition is like a wet room and can get very slippery. There is a rubber mat you can put down. Wifi is free when paying the resort fee. If you book thru an agent, this is sometimes included, but make sure you ask or check your invoice. I loved this hotel. The Infinity Pool upstairs is superb. It can get busy though. There is also a kids pool at one if the ends. A must do is dinner at Ce La Vi (formerly Ku De Ta) and reservations are essential, click here for my review. Try the apple and ginger martini. The pork belly is also amazing. This is definitely a hotel offering the full package. Mall across the road with excellent selection of shops and a food court by the ice rink that does cheap but tasty food from a number of different countries. Cabs are cheap in Singapore so head to Clarke Quay for a great selection of restaurants for something different and don't forget high tea at raffles - book in advance.
This is the room, the bathroom to the right and balcony to the left.
This is the balcony with a view out to the newly created gardens.
