Pool under the clouds
• Swimming in the clouds
Today I'll tell you about the coolest hotel in the world, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Three towers 200 meters in height (55 floors) is located in a large terrace nacelle with pools and green gardens total area of 12, 4 sq. M. meters.
The main pool is located in the open, has no visible ledges, which is why it seems that the waters edge is cut off at a height. Pool stretches for 150 meters and is the largest swimming pool, built on this level.
The hotel has 2500 numbers, shopping center, conference hall, two theaters, a museum and several restaurants. The construction of the hotel has cost investors $ 8 billion. This is the most expensive resort in the detached world.
General form. The three towers of more than 2,500 rooms. On the roof is a swimming pool. Large white lily - Museum of Modern Art. At the foot - shops, theater and restaurants.
on the roof type. There are several restaurants and nightclubs. The construction of each floor of the hotel took only 4 days.
The hotel has a huge casino 1,000 gaming tables and 1400 slot machines.
In one of the atriums hung a huge steel weblike sculpture Antony Gormley, consisting of 16100 segments. Installation weight 14, 8 tons 60 already collected by the workers.
The Atrium. Generally I do not like those big hotels. Always bustling, a lot of people, more tourists are walking, considering. But the staff is efficient. Everything is done quickly. Although I did not wait for a porter and had all 3 suitcases with photographic equipment to haul himself.
Now go up to the roof.
More precisely, to my room.
That's it. I'm sorry, I have not tidied up a bit. This small room with city views (48 floor) costs about $ 500 per day. If a good view is not needed, and can be found for $ 400, and at agencies even cheaper. Nice room with an area of 200 square meters will cost $ 1,500.
Window (woman stands for scale). Sofa uncomfortable.
Bath. The cheap rooms with shower only.
All right, let's go to the roof. Part of the roof is open to tourists. Even if you do not live here, you can buy a ticket for $ 20 and go up to the observation deck, or in the restaurant.
It offers the best views of the city. By the way, I do not recommend going to the restaurant on the roof. Prices are great and the food is terrible.
The site is fenced with glass, so that the tourists do not fall out. By the way, it offers the best view of the F1 circuit. But to get here in time, almost impossible to race. Terrace traditionally purchase the Russian oligarchs.
Some of the rise of the numbers directly in a dressing gown.
On the "deck" tropical garden - 250 trees and 650 different plants. All the palm trees and the presents.
Jacuzzi hiding among the trees.
With a beautiful view.
But most importantly - a swimming pool.
He used to be open to all comers, but then wanting to become a lot and now there are only guests here.
Pool lovely - big, little people.
There is a compartment for children.
He closed the glass.
There are four expansion joint under the base of the pool so that it can withstand the natural movement of the towers. The total range of movement of 50 cm.
It seems that over the edge of the pool - the gulf. In fact, there are lower ledge technical, in which runs a servant. Therefore, even if you fall off, it is not fly away.
The pool is open from 6 am to 11 pm.
Every night is a laser show with fountains. But I did not understand, how it should look. On this shore is not visible fountains, if you approach the hotel, it is not visible lasers.
Many tourists come to Singapore just for the sake of this hotel, and rightly so. He has deservedly become one of the main attractions of this city-state.
