Husbands can be such annoying creatures, and mine has really outdone himself this time.
Our International Man of Mystery was in Singapore last week attending a conference, whilst we were been freezing in Sydney.
And I wouldn’t normally mind BUT he’s been staying at the Marina Bay Sands where the conference was held. And that’s just annoying.
You see, whilst he’d never heard of this amazing resort, I’ve had it at the top of my Hotels and Resorts I Must Stay At list for a few years (and yes, my list is fairly long.)
The main reason for me wanting to stay at this hotel is for it’s unique swimming pool.
The pool is 150 metres long, as long as three Olympic pools. It is the world’s longest elevated swimming pool, 191 metres above ground.
I’d only need to do about four laps to have got in a fabulous swim.
And those views!
And guess what? My beloved didn’t even have a swim in the pool – whaaaat?
He reported that it was pretty busy morning and night. And he was busy. What kind of an excuse is that?
The pool is only open to hotel guests however there’s a huge observation deck called Skydeck which is open to the public. It’s a fab place to watch the sunset, I am informed by Himself.
He also recommends watching the the water and light show over Marina Bay. It’s free and on at 8pm each evening.
Here are some of his photos (the gorgeous photos of the pool have been sent to me by the hotel’s PR, just for me to drool over.)
This is the Marina Bay Sands above, it’s massive with over 2000 rooms, a convention centre, museum, theatres, a casino, an ice skating rink and several restaurants. The complex has three 55-storey hotel towers and the SkyDeck which connects them is one hectare. Huge!
At the end of a winter in Sydney, that pool is most appealing. How weird it must feel to swim in the sky.
Well, it won’t go away, will it? One day I shall get the old togs on and have a dip.
And just to remind myself, when I really do start planning a holiday to Singapore, the Singapore Tourism’s website is here. Got it.
Have you been to Singapore recently?
Visited the Marina Bay Sands?
Anyone else fancy a cocktail by the pool?
Happy holiday dreaming,
