Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Hotel opened 2.5 years ago at a cost of $6.6 billion. It’s a 2,561 room hotel and casino that includes restaurants, bars, upscale shopping malls, a museum and a SkyPark with a 492 foot (150 m) swimming pool.
The largest and highest pool in the world is located on the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands and offers a 360° panoramic views of Singapore and Marina Bay. Swimmers report feeling they are about to fall off the edge when swimming toward the skyline.
The park is only open to hotel guests which provides privacy and exclusivity. Room rates start at $399 with the high roller suites costing $14,000 per night. This is a mere pittance when compared with the Grand Resort Lagonissi in Athens at $47,000, a night or the Palms Casino Resort Hotel in Las Vegas at $38,000, or a night, or the Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan at $32,000 per night. If you’ve got the money, it’s probably well worth it!
