HOTEL BUZZ: World's Most Expensive Hotel Opens in Singapore

The Marina Bay Sands in Singapore ranks as the world’s priciest hotel, offering guests over 2,500 rooms, a 55th-story infinity pool, shopping center, fine dining, and a casino.

The $5.95 billion Marina Bay Sands Hotel recently opened its doors in Singapore and has ousted the Emirates Palace Hotel Abu Dhabi as the world’s most expensive hotel. This towering new megaresort in Singapore features three curved towers with an unbelievable  Sands Sky Deck perched 200 meters in the air atop the towers. The 380 meter-long deck is massive–the equivalent of three football fields long. A 650-ft wide infinity pool, the largest outdoor pool in the world that high, hugs the edge of the deck so guests can swim laps while taking in the magnificent Singapore skyline. A botanical garden and observation deck proffer panoramic views of the waterfront. Jetsetters will be flocking to the Sky Park’s outdoor rooftop, where the famous Ku De Ta lounge, that originated in Bali, is slated to open later this month.

Inside, the mega hotel includes an indoor canal with Sampan boats designed for cruising, a convention center, theater, casino, endless shopping options, and gourmet dining that includes a restaurant by renowned French chef Guy Savoy. The hotel has more than 2,500 rooms and suites available.  Room rates vary,  starting at $520 a night based upon the size of the room and category. Book online or call +65 6688 8888.

Sadly there is a dark side to travel and in Bali the cruel dog meat trade is alive and well, PLEASE SIGN & SHARE and do what you can to end this hideous practice. Knowledge is power and tourism dollars matter a great deal to many of the countries that engage in animal cruelty so don't be fooled by many of the zoos and temples that use animals to lure you in and as a result suffer miserable lives... or worst, as below. Thank you! :(
