Marina Bay Sands Singapore: Infinity Pool + Fireworks

Marina Bay Sands Singapore Infinity Pool
  
Marina Bay Sands officially opened June 30, 2010 and can be considered a one-stop tourist place with hotel (comprising of three 55-storey towers), infinity pool (150-metres), restaurants, casino and high-end shopping all rolled into one. The hotel is accessible via public transportation, and taking take a taxi from the hotel is very orderly. If you take a taxi there, someone will be there to open the door for you and greet you.

Finding the right hotel just got a whole lot easier - HotelsCombined.comThe Sands SkyPark overlooks the three 55-storey towers and incorporates the  infinity swimming pool, the world’s largest outdoor pool at 200-metres high, This is one of the world’s largest public cantilevers which can boast of the best view of Singapore skyline.  To access the Sands SkyPark, there is an admission fee. According to Marina Bay Sands, there are 3 guided tours available for Observation deck guests: 10am, 2pm and 9pm. These tours are on a first-come-first-served basis and tour registration is located at the SkyPark Box Office located at B1 Tower 3. Each tour will be limited to 50 guests and run approximately 15 minutes.

Sometime last year, I had the opportunity to visit The Marina Bay Sands Hotel and its already famous infinity pool. Thanks to my cousins who were staying there at the time. It so happened that stay coincided with the National Day Parade Rehearsals, so we had to privilege of catching the fireworks in a hotel room which had a splendid view of the rehearsal that evening. Unfortunately, I was not prepared and did not bring my camera so the photos of the fireworks were taken with my mobile phone.

When I was there, there was little privacy at the pool as guests to the Sands SkyPark  had access  to the pools and gardens. However, since Monday, 26th September 2011, Marina Bay Sands  has since made improvements, and observation deck guests will no longer have direct access to the Pool and Gardens. This should be a relief for hotel guests entitled to the pool who want to enjoy what they paid for and the privacy they deserve, rather than be gawked at and jostle for pool space with the observation deck guests.
