Facts, informations and history of Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands is a hotel consisting of 3 high-rise, 55-story high-rise buildings connected to the top of Sky by a boat-shaped park.

This impressive hotel owes its popularity to the "infinite pool" located on the roof at an altitude of 200 meters. The area of ​​Sands Sky Park, as it is called the area of ​​the 57th floor, is 12400 square meters and there are also restaurants, bars, 250 trees, a 360-degree observatory, and the 150-meter long pool mentioned above.

The Sands Sky Park platform is 340 meters long, so long that it could accommodate four Airbus A380s, but if placed on the roof along the Eiffel Tower, it would not cover whole. It is constructed from 14 ready-made elements with a total weight of 7,000 tons, these elements have been pulled 200 meters up and assembled. It can accommodate 3900 people.

Admission to the pool is only for hotel guests, and you can stay for about 900 zlotys, because that's how much the cheapest rooms cost. Somewhat more affluent, they can choose one of the two presidential apartments located here, covering an area of ​​629 m². Access to the observation deck in Sky Park is possible and paid for non-hotel guests.

The pool has nearly 1.5 million liters of water, just below it there are four movable joints that are designed to counteract strong winds from the sea and withstand natural towers movement, maintaining stable structures.

Another solution was installed in the foundations, where approx. 500 lifts were placed, which prevent the collapse of the hotel underground.

$ 8 billion Marina Bay Sands is the most expensive stand alone property ever built.

This 5-star hotel has 2,561 rooms, 6 exhibition rooms, 250 meeting rooms, a fitness club and the largest ballroom in Southeast Asia. It is the sixth largest hotel in Asia and 34 in this respect in the world.

The convention center here has an area of ​​1,200,000 square feet and can accommodate up to 45,000 people.

Here is also one of the world's largest casinos, created by the Sands group from Las Vegas. Casino with 600 tables, 2,500 gaming machines and 35 private gaming rooms. It has long since overtaken the income of its brother Las Vegas, here you can also light a cigarette without worrying about punishment, as is the case in all other areas of this city-state. There are also two theaters with 2155 and 1680 seats respectively.

From a distance, the towers of the Marina Bay Sands look like straight columns, but in fact they are tilted. Hotel Tower 1 has a slope of 26 degrees. According to the principle of "feng shui" (the art of orientating buildings and objects in such a way that everything is in harmony with the surrounding environment), this number is considered special because individual numbers add up to 8, a happy number in Chinese culture.

At the foot of two glass crystals shine. The first of them houses the Parisian luxury fashion house - Louis Vuitton. In the second, the Art Science Museum. The museum was opened on February 17, 2011 by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and is the first facility of its kind in the world. The shape of the museum resembles a lotus flower and was designed by architect Moshe Safdi (creator of Habitat 67).

The structure of the museum consists of two parts. The first is a base set in the ground, the second is a giant pond with ten petals rising towards the sky. Access to the museum is provided by elevators and escalators. The roof structure makes it possible to collect rainwater and use it to create a waterfall inside the building.

The museum has 21 galleries with a total area of ​​6,000. m², located on three levels. The permanent exhibition at the ArtScience Museum consists of 3 galleries. The object will exhibit exhibits related to art, science, technology, media, design and architecture.

The ArtScience Museum also has the function of collecting rainwater and recycling for use in toilets in complex buildings.

The fountains located in front of the skyscrapers give spectacular shows every day using multi-colored lasers, demonstrations combining light, sound and water.
