Unexpected but Memorable Stay at the Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands, Review - Marina Bay Sands, Where to stay at the Bayfront, Is it worth the price to stay at the Marina Bay Sands?, Marina Bay Sands Review

As a small town girl who’s always on the side of practicality, I would never splurge on a fancy hotel UNLESS there’s an occasion. 

Clearly, I promote budget travel so setting foot in this spacious, warm-lit, Tai Ping carpeted room of the Marina Bay Sands is kind of surreal for me.

So what’s the occasion? You might ask. In fact, there’s none. But here I am, and I’ll tell you why...

Top Reason to Stay in Marina Bay Sands

I could think of two great reasons to stay in Marina Bay Sands: one is to feel the waters of the world’s highest and longest infinity pool and the second one is to enjoy the sunset view while I rest my chin and thrust my arms on the edge of the world’s highest and longest infinity pool… I guess I should just say my top reason is the Skypark Infinity Pool.  

For others, it could be the award-winning Banyan Spa or the high-class Casino. It could be the buffet breakfast prepared by celebrity chefs or the exclusive bars or observation decks that promise a panoramic view of Singapore’s gleaming city district. 

Whatever it is, the top reason is always related to the self-indulgence this luxury accommodation advertises...

High Cost of Room Elegance

I initially thought that staying in Marina Bay Sands would only cost around Php 15, 000 per night. To my surprise, Hiropi paid a little over Php 21,000 per night for a Deluxe Room without breakfast or bath tub included. I know. Deep Sigh.

Thankfully, the room lived up to its cost. But it’s not due to “an outstanding interior”, mind you. For the most part, the bedding, furniture, flat screen TV, blackout drapes, internet speed, shower and toiletries, room service—all these are just on a par with a 5-star hotel that’s about half our room cost.

The room didn’t disappoint because of "the view". From the window of our room on the 49th floor, we could enjoy the seemingly unending fireworks displays and glittering lights generated by the proud skyscrapers. 

After all, our room is a “deluxe room with city view” for a reason.

Promising Observation Deck

Not only that we enjoyed the night view from our room, akin to the experience, we relished the 360-degree daytime view of the rest of the city district.

The last time I went to Singapore, I was not allowed to be here. As I mentioned, this part of the hotel is exclusive to the guests.

Up here is a good place to breathe fresh air but not really a good place to take selfie against the wind.

The Coveted Infinity Pool

Our main agenda, so to speak, is to swim in the 150-meter infinity pool perched atop the 3 towers of the Marina Bay Sands.

But I realized it is not smart to swim here past 5 PM in a cloudy February. The wind can really be chilly and the water can be freezing cold.

If it’s the case, you can try soaking in the Jacuzzi instead, just like what we’re left to do.

I failed to swim.. it's too cold... so i just relaxed on the lounge chair, and yeah enjoyed the Jacuzzi...

 Around the Marina Bay Sands

During our stay, the vicinity of the hotel is busy with movable stalls adorned with Chinese New Year decors. The place is festive, as well as crowded.

To our convenience, we could taste a variety of local food from the night market, listen to live bands, take photos with colorful figures—all in celebration of the holidays.

Final Thoughts

I’m far from being ‘the person with luxurious tastes’, but I wouldn’t say I don’t appreciate luxury. The stay in Marina Bay Sands is unexpected but truly memorable. I was more than thrilled to be here. I thank Hiropi for choosing this hotel for the first stint of our early summer getaway.

To be honest though, it would take me some time to go back here. This hotel is not in my league. But if in any case, the room price drops, I’d take it straightaway and hopefully experience the infinity pool once more, this time, on a bright, warm sunny day...

Expensive places are often relaxing, but not always. They might exceed expectations. They might disappoint... What I realized though, during my stay in the Marina Bay Sands, is that these places will always ensure "a unique moment of pleasure"—be it fleeting or extensive—a one-of-a-kind experience you get to take with you when you go back home and probably affect you in a small way or so~
