Marina Bay Sands

Top choice in Colonial District, the Quays & Marina Bay

Designed by Israeli-born architect Moshe Safdie, Marina Bay Sands is a sprawling hotel, casino, mall, theatre, exhibition and museum complex. Star of the show is the Marina Bay Sands hotel, its three 55-storey towers connected by a cantilevered SkyPark. Head up for a drink and stellar views at CÉ LA VI, before catching a show at the MasterCard Theatres or doing serious damage to your credit card at the Shoppes.
