1. Marina Bay Sands Hotel (Marina Bay)
With 963 guestrooms at the Sands Hotel it is in no way boutique, but as a unique hotel experience it is no doubt hard to beat. Located with the iconic Marina Bay Sands building the Sands Hotel towers over the Marina Bay and shares some of the best city views over downtown Singapore. The hotel itself is integrated within the three towers of the Marina Bay Sands and guestrooms start surprisingly cheap on the lower floors (19th) only to rise into ultimate luxury on the upper tiers. To top off the experience ever guest has privileged access to the world-renowned infinity pool and Sands Sky Park located on the cantilevered rooftop of the 56th floor. Marina Bay Sands offers by far the best views of our design and boutique hotels in Singapore.

Hotel interiors are designed to reflect this heritage mirroring the tribulations of Singapore’s early Chinese immigrants through heritage accents and carefully selected furniture of Chinese tradition. The concept recreates the living experience of early Chinese settlers, with a modern, contemporary and of course luxury twist.
