Marina Bay Sands has launched the second phase of its significant reinvestment programme, committing to the iconic integrated resort’s (IR) development as a world-class tourism destination and ensuring that it remains a unique, exhilarating experience for local and international visitors, and meaningfully enhances the tourism appeal of Singapore in the decades ahead.
Estimated at US$750 million, the second phase of transformation will focus on Tower 3, the Hotel Lobby and Sands SkyPark. It will include a reimagined VIP arrival experience, new premium dining and retail offerings, a lobby transformation as well as a renewed focus on wellness experiences for guests. More than 550 redesigned rooms, including approximately 380 suites, will be introduced in this phase. Works are expected to be completed in phases through 2025.
The announcement comes as Marina Bay Sands enters the final stage of its US$1 billion first-phase reinvestment, announced in February 2022, and focused on the complete refurbishment of Hotel Towers 1 and 2, in addition to new dining offerings and luxury lifestyle amenities for high-value travellers.
The expanded reinvestment programme reaffirms parent company Las Vegas Sands’ commitment to contribute to Singapore’s hospitality industry, supporting its people and economy, with a total reinvestment of US$1.75 billion.
The first phase of transformation saw the extensive upgrading of a total of around 1,280 rooms across Towers 1 and 2, of which about 390 are new suites. These rooms are housed under two main categories – The Paiza Collection and The Sands Collection. Each has unique room types, such as the Horizon Suite, inspired by spa and wellness concepts, and the Family Suite, ideal for families with young children, featuring a kitchenette as well as a children’s room with bunk beds, a bookshelf of storybooks and exclusively curated Adventure Packs.
In February 2024, the Paiza Sky Club will also open its doors on the 55th floor of Tower 2. The new multi-concept executive club lounge will feature a tea vault, bespoke whisky bar, private liquor locker, garden conservatory and buffet spreads served from open kitchens helmed by top chefs.
The Paiza Collection features ultra-luxurious residential-style suites located on the highest floors of the hotel on Levels 50 to 54 in Towers 1 and 2. Reserved for Marina Bay Sands’ most distinguished guests, the experience includes private VIP arrival and dedicated lifts, butler services and exclusive access to the Paiza Sky Club. The Paiza Royal Collection is home to the Chairman Suite, Presidential Suite, Horizon Suite and Marina Suite.
Once the transformation of all three hotel towers is completed, guests will be presented with a spread of 1,850 luxuriously refurbished rooms, including nearly 770 suites.
As a prelude to a new focus on wellness experiences, Marina Bay Sands will also launch several wellness activities at SkyPark Observation Deck and Infinity Pool, offering both hotel and non-hotel guests Muay Thai boxing, spin classes, sound bath meditation and more.
