Infinity pool provides swimming above Singapore’s skyline

Marina Bay Sands Hotel’s Pool with a view

There’s no doubt there are rooms with pretty spectacular views at the brand-new Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino, but it’s hard to imagine topping the vista from the rooftop infinity pool, 55 stories above Singapore.

Swimming to the edge isn’t quite as dangerous as it looks. While the water in the infinity pool appears to end in a sheer drop, it actually spills into a catchment area where it is pumped back into the main pool. At three times the length of an Olympic-sized pool and 650 ft. above street level, it is the largest outdoor pool in the world at that height.

The incredible pool is a highlight of the boat-shaped ‘SkyPark’ perched atop the three towers that make up the world’s most expensive hotel, the $6.4 billion Marina Bay Sands development designed by Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. The hotel, which features 2,560 rooms starting at over $500 a night, was officially opened recently with a concert by Diana Ross.

Marina Bay Sands is Asia’s leading destination for business, leisure and entertainment. The landmark building is situated in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District and transforms Singapore’s skyline and the country’s tourism landscape. The financial district of Shenton Way is 3 kilometres away, while the Changi airport is only 20 minutes by car. The hotel is also within walking distance to popular leisure attraction such as Singapore’s famous landmark Merlion Park is about 15 minutes away.

The destination offers a luxury hotel with over 2,500 rooms and suites with views of the South China Sea or the Singapore skyline, state-of-the art convention and exhibition facilities, theaters, world-class entertainment and the best shopping and dining in the region. The three hotel towers are crowned by the Sands SkyPark on the 57th storey. At 200 meters in the sky, it provides unobstructed 360-degree views of the city skyline and the sea. It is also home to restaurants, lush gardens, a 150-meter infinity edged swimming pool and the world’s largest public cantilever housing an observation deck at 200 meters high.

With over 800,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands transforms the retail landscape in Singapore with the country’s first large-scale luxury shopping mall in the heart of the Central Business District. Shoppers can look forward to a refreshing mix of international luxury brands, emerging labels and new concepts, including the Louis Vuitton “island” store housed in the Crystal Pavilion. Natural sunlight will bathe the passage way of the mall, illuminating the interiors via plate-glass windows. Other innovative concept includes a canal which takes visitors on a boat ride through the retail belt.

Food connoisseurs can take their pick from celebrity chef restaurants to local delights and many more.

Marina Bay Sands elevates nighttime entertainment to a new level with world-class gaming, new-concept bars, and ultra-hip clubs that hail from leading cities around the world. With the ability to seamlessly combine business and leisure into a singular destination unlike any other, Marina Bay Sands is the new epicenter of leisure, entertainment and business in the heart of Asia.

Flipping through the stacks, cleaning off the LP, placing the needle on the record, reading the lyrics, studying the artwork, and enjoying the rich analog sound. Sure, there are occasional pops & you might have to clean the record. You actually have to flip the record at the end of the side. It's not a play list or program on shuffle. You are present, involved, and engaged in the listening process. 
Please Keep Vinyl Alive & Support Local Artists!"
