Marina Bay Sands in Singapore

Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore, well developed by Las Vegas Sands. It is situated on 15.5 hectares of land (Gross Floor Area is 581,000 square meters). It is opened on 27 April 2010, to promote Singapore’s Skyline tourisms, and has several facilities such as hotel, convention and exhibition, theatres, entertainment venues, retailers, and restaurants. Marina Bay Sands has two winning proposals, first Singapore integrated resorts, and Resorts World Sentosa, which incorporates Universal Studios Theme Park. The main objective of two resorts is to meet Singapore's economic and tourism development appeal and contribution, architectural concept and design, development investment, and strengthen of the consortium and partners.
 
On 27 May, 2006, Las Vegas Sands (LVS) liked that the hotel towers were set back to add in attractions of infinity edge swimming pool in the skypark from the waterfront to open up expansive views of the city and the entire Marina Bay, making the skyline for Singapore's downtown more attractive and distinctive. The beautiful Marina Bay Sands hotel has three 55-story towers with 2,561 luxury rooms and suites, which is capped by the Sands SkyPark, which offers 360-degree views of Singapore's skyline. The SkyPark is home to restaurants, gardens, a 150-metre vanishing edge and the world's largest public cantilever housing an observation deck. This architectural marvel stands at the height of 200 meters and boasts 12,400 square meters of space. To help the Skypark withstand the natural motion of the towers caused by wind, engineers designed and constructed four movement joints beneath the main pools, each possessing a unique range of motion.
 
The total range of motion is 19.68 inches. In addition to wind, the hotel towers are also subject to settlement in the earth over time; hence custom jack legs were built and installed to allow for future adjustment at more than 500 points beneath the pool system. This jacking system is important primarily to ensure the infinity edge of the pool continues to function properly. The Sands Expo and Convention Centre has largest and most flexible meeting place in Asia, and biggest meeting, incentives, conference and exhibitions facility in Singapore, and the ballroom is the largest in Southeast Asia, capable of hosting up to 11,000 delegates. You can found more attraction at Marina Bay Sands of retail and restaurant, the largest luxury shopping mall in the central business district.
