Singapore has become one of the top destinations for tourists in South-East Asia looking for somewhere they can find the best shopping, a variety of cultures and amazing experiences. When you’re visiting Singapore, it can be daunting when it comes to choosing a hotel so we have compiled a list of the best hotels in Marina Bay for people looking for luxury in the heart of this vibrant city.
Marina Bay Sands is one of Singapore’s most iconic buildings, this hotel is made up of three separate towers connected by a platform on the 57th floor that has become one of the most recognizable symbols for the Lion City. One of the things that has helped to increase Marina Bay Sands’ fame is the often-photographed, breathtaking infinity pool on the 57th floor of the building. Only accessible to hotel patrons, this is the highest infinity pool in the world. When checking in, ask for one of the rooms facing the city on a high floor so you can enjoy sweeping views of the Central Business District and Marina Bay.
Not to be confused with The Fullerton Hotel, The Fullerton Bay Hotel is the building that appears to float on Marina Bay next to the old customs house where people first arrived in Singapore. The Fullerton Bay Hotel is a display of modern architecture on the inside and out. Rooms have full floor-to-ceiling windows so guests can enjoy unencumbered views of Singapore’s impressive skyline in comfort, or head upstairs to the hotel’s rooftop bar, Lantern, and take in the views while sipping on a bespoke cocktail.
The Pan Pacific Singapore is conveniently located just steps from the Promenade MRT station that is serviced by the Circle (yellow) and Downtown (blue) lines. Built in 1986, the Pan Pacific Hotel has been a symbol of luxury in Singapore for many years. With rooms featuring full-length windows, guests on higher floors can anticipate striking views of Marina Bay.
Almost next door to the Pan Pacific Singapore, the Conrad Centennial is considered by many to be the best luxury business hotel in Singapore. Located across from the Suntec Convention and Exhibition Centre, this hotel is very convenient for delegates attending tradeshows and conferences in Singapore. After a day of conferences, hotel guests can shop at the nearby malls, take a leisurely stroll through the Marina Bay district or enjoy a meal at the hotel’s restaurant, the Golden Peony, renowned for its Cantonese cuisine.
The Fullerton Hotel is a classic Singapore icon. Built in the 1920s in the neo-classical style, The Fullerton boasts beautiful brickwork and daunting Doric columns. It has become a hotel only recently, having been used as Singapore’s General Post Office and Library until it was converted to a hotel in 2000. With an enviable location in the very heart of the Marina Bay area, a stay at The Fullerton would be incomplete without a visit to The Lighthouse Restaurant and Bar on the hotel’s rooftop. From up there, guests can enjoy stunning views of Marina Bay and the skyscrapers that make up the Financial District.
The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore is a super luxurious hotel and modern art gallery rolled into one. It follows that the decor of the hotel is a mix of regency-inspired furnishings complemented by modern amenities – this sort of new meets old touches every aspect of the Ritz-Carlton. The hotel owns over 4,000 contemporary artworks and guests never know when they turn a corner if they’ll come across a famous work by Andy Warhol or Frank Stella. The hotel is located steps from the Singapore flyer, and by crossing the Bayfront Bridge guests can reach the Marina Bay Sands complex and Gardens by the Bay in less than 10 minutes on foot.
