FUN FACTS ABOUT MARINA BAY SANDS

 8 Apr 2019  

From one-pound meatballs served 57 storeys high to being the site of the world’s largest rooftop pool, these are some fun facts about Marina Bay Sands you may not have known.
 

City in the sky

Sands SkyPark

Sitting 57 storeys up from the heart of Marina Bay Sands – and offering panoramic views of the skyline and Singapore Strait – is Sands SkyPark, itself large enough to fit four-and-a-half A380 jumbo jets. For better perspective, it measures longer than a certain iconic attraction in Paris, France, from end to end. 
 
Sands SkyPark

Sands SkyPark, in itself, is home to three dining establishments: LAVO, a sleek Italian restaurant and spiffy bar by night; Spago by Wolfgang Puck (you’ll find the one-Michelin-starred CUT over at The Shoppes in Marina Bay Sands), where Californian cuisine is matched with sturdy handcrafted cocktails at its bar and lounge; and CÉ LA VI, whose modern Asian plates will suitably prime you for a night of house mixes spun by its resident DJs over at CÉ LA VI Club Lounge.

 

The world’s largest rooftop pool

Infinity Pool

So famed is Marina Bay Sands’ Infinity Pool that even celebrities have taken a dip in it – from David Beckham and Katy Perry to the cast of 2018’s Crazy Rich Asians, by way of that over-the-top, synchronised swimming scene.

But there’s more to the elevated pool than looks: at 150 metres long, it’s also the world’s largest, and holds some 1.5 million litres of water. That’s an amount no human would be able to consume in a lifetime, considering we only require two litres of water a day – or 730 litres in a year.


Planting grounds

Sands Skypark

Why does the Sands SkyPark require 3.3 million kg of soil? To keep its 250 trees and 650 plants alive – each of which was selected for its hardiness to withstand the constant breeze. For more manicured greenery, make for Gardens by the Bay, located just minutes from Marina Bay Sands by foot. Walking trails are also aplenty in Singapore – and if you’re looking for Singapore’s more untouched reserves, try Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, of which you’ll find our detailed guide here.


The one-pound meatball

LAVO

Ever had a one-pound meatball? That seems a rather loaded question, for all its worth – but loaded is exactly what you’ll get when you order The Meatball (S$38++) at LAVO Italian Restaurant & Rooftop Bar. Moreish and rich, it’s built from ground imperial wagyu, veal and Italian sausage, then finished with a generous dollop of freshly whipped ricotta.

Save space for the 20-Layer Chocolate Cake, a stacked affair with alternating layers of salty-sweet peanut butter mascarpone. This treat is best shared, even if you’re a hardened sugar addict. Remember to visit these Instagrammable spots around the Marina Bay area after.
