Costing a cool US$5.7billion to complete (including prime land), the Marina Bay Sands is the world’s most expensive building, and it really shows. Luxury oozes out of every nook and cranny of this magnificent building, which regularly plays host to world class performers and events.

As you alight your yacht at the W’s private berth in Sentosa Cove and ascend up the red carpet staircase, you’ll know you’re home.

Unashamedly trendy, the W brand knows how to run luxurious establishments which arouse all the senses. A stunning array of colours, patterns, textures and quirky designs combine beautifully to create a visually phenomenal hotel.

Bedroom views over the 1,338 square metre lagoon swimming pool, ocean or marina aren’t too shabby either.

3. Level 33 Restaurant, Marina Bay Financial Centre

If you haven’t overlooked Singapore’s incredible Marina Bay at night time from 33 floors up, then you’ve not properly witnessed the true majesty of this city.

Apart from offering breathtaking views across the entire region, this classy and sophisticated restaurant – where reservations are essential – is a thing of beauty itself. Beautifully decorated with rich woods and dark leathers, this is a spot worthy of any occasion.

4. Orgo Bar, Esplanade Drive

With great views of Singapore’s Marina Bay area, the chic and stylish Orgo is arguably one of the city’s best bars.

Sit outside on the expansive outdoor deck, in the indoor air-conditioned lounge, or for that extra bit of class, enjoy semi-private seating in the exclusive glass ‘ice-cubes’.

5. The Straits Bar, Tower Club

If the exquisite cocktail and liquor range doesn’t have you drooling, the view from the Straits Bar’s lofty location upon Tower Club certainly will.

Not only will you savour the extensive drinks menu, you’ll also love the sumptuous international buffet during the day.

6. Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Marina Square

The magnificence of every aspect of the 5 Star Mandarin Oriental will have you doubting yourself every time you think about stepping outside of the hotel.

There aren’t many places that can compete with the Marina Bay Sands when it comes to offering incredible views, except maybe, for this one.

All rooms and suites are the definition of luxury and include floor-to-ceiling windows. Anything less wouldn’t do the magnificent city, ocean or harbour views enough justice.

7. Iggy’s Restaurant, Hilton Hotel

Regardless of the sweet ambience and splendid interior design of this charming restaurant, you’ll feel glamorous eating here simply because food doesn’t get much better.

Having recently been voted in the top 25 best restaurants in Asia, Iggy’s owner, Ignacious ‘Iggy’ Chan, is clearly doing something very, very right.

8. Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Marina Bay

Whilst it may look from the outside like a giant pair of house-fly’s eyes, the Esplanade is a magnificently grand concert hall which also offers world class dining and retail.

Situated on the edge of Marina Bay, Esplanade caters for functions, events and shows from 10 to 2,000 people in state-of-the-art facilities and unrivalled acoustic features.

9. Fullerton Bay Hotel, Collyer Quay

With views looking almost directly across at the Marina Bay Sands resort, the Fullerton Bay Hotel is up there as one of the best hotels in Singapore.

This 5 Star establishment only entered the scene in 2010, and comprises a magnificent poolside restaurant and rooms and suites which all have balconies or sun decks.

For that typical Singaporean panoramic experience, choose one of the few suites with a bay view, two of which also come with an outdoor jacuzzi from which to take in the majestic surroundings.

10. Les Amis, Shaw Centre

Regularly popping up in lists of the World’s top restaurants, Les Amis is regarded as the finest establishment in Singapore’s French dining scene.

Situated in the heart of the city, this indisputably luxurious and sophisticated restaurant serves wondrous European cuisine and focuses heavily on fine wine – they even boast one of South-East Asia’s largest cellars worth more than US$5million.
