Marina Bay Sands has introduced a slew of measures with the health and well-being of our guests, Team Members and community in mind.

Visitors who enter the IR are screened for their temperature and must use the TraceTogether app or Token to enter the premises. 

The IR has also been certified as SG Clean, which is a hygiene and sanitation quality certification by the Singapore Government; and certified under the Bureau Veritas SafeGuard™ Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label for meeting international hygiene and safety standards within the hospitality industry.

All team members working on property are covered by our enhanced Rostered Routine Testing (RRT) regime using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests. RRT takes place every 14 or 28 days, based on job profiles and risk exposure.

Marina Bay Sands is pleased to be certified as SG Clean by the Singapore Government in recognition of our commitment towards the highest levels of sanitisation and hygiene. The SG Clean Quality mark applies to the entire integrated resort and highlights our commitment to safeguard our communities’ well-being, by adhering to the Government’s sector specific sanitisation and hygiene checklists, covering areas such as management oversight, cleaning methodology, toilet cleanliness and general public hygiene.

Marina Bay Sands was awarded the highly lauded SafeGuard™ Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label by Bureau Veritas (BV), a nearly 200-year-old world leading provider in testing, inspection and certification.

The BV SafeGuard Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label is designed to support the operational restart activities in the hospitality and restaurant industries globally. It is awarded to a site following independent verification of compliance with a rigorous sanitary protocol by a qualified Bureau Veritas auditor. As a recipient of this Label, Marina Bay Sands has demonstrated that it has achieved set standards that keep hygiene and safety at the forefront, and mitigated the risk of virus spread across property.

Besides mandatory check-in via the TraceTogether app or Token, guests will need to undergo temperature checks. Any individual – whether they are visitors, staff, tenants or suppliers – will be declined entry if they display a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius and above.

All guests are requested to follow government guidelines and advice relating to safe distancing, personal hygiene, wearing of masks, and staying home if they are unwell.

In light of venue capacity restrictions and safe distancing measures, entry requirements in certain facilities have been introduced to manage crowds. For instance, access to the Infinity Pool is managed through a queue system, which limits use of the pool to 1 hour 15 mins per day, per guest room. The system allows us to control access while ensuring all guests have the opportunity to experience the pool.

We also encourage guests to pre-purchase tickets to our attractions (ArtScience Museum, SkyPark Observation Deck, Digital Light Canvas and Sampan Rides) online before visiting Marina Bay Sands. 

Guests are required to secure a registration time slot to check-in via SMS, within 24 hours prior to arrival.

Access to the Infinity Pool and Fitness Club will also be staggered to reduce capacity through a queue management system. Hotel guests are required to make their pool session booking via SMS within 24 hours of your arrival date. Access to the pool is limited to a maximum of 1 hour 15 mins per room, per day, to ensure all guests have the opportunity to experience the pool.

Hotel guests are also required to register their interest to use the Fitness Club via the same queue management system, and be issued a queue number as they await their turn to access the facility. Guests can utilise the gym facilities up to a maximum of an hour per visit.

Marina Bay Sands is no longer a Stay Home Notice (SHN) hotel. There are currently no individuals serving their 14-day SHN with us.

If you currently have a booking with us and are affected by prevailing travel restrictions, we will allow full changes or cancellations without any penalties, to 2 days prior to arrival, as long as your arrival date is before 31 October 2021.

For arrival date after 31 October 2021, we will only allow full changes to a reservation. Changes to a future date will also be subject to room availability and rate differences.

This policy also applies for bookings made via online travel agents or other third-party travel platforms. However, if your booking is made through a third-party site or party, please contact them directly as additional policies may apply.
