Announced almost two years ago, Marina Bay Sands Singapore’s first US$1 billion phase of renewal is nearing completion. Phase one centred on towers one and two of its three-tower footprint, delivering upgrades to 1,280 hotel rooms, including around 390 new suites.
The just-announced second phase will concentrate on tower 3, the hotel lobby and the Sands SkyPark which can host events of up to 500 attendees, 57 floors up from Singapore street level. More than 550 rooms, including around 380 suites, will be redesigned in phase two and the lobby will be transformed. This phase will also yield a ‘reimagined’ VIP guest arrival experience and new dining and retail offerings.
“We are excited about the next stage of Marina Bay Sands’ development, and how this will strengthen Singapore’s appeal as a leading tourism destination,” said Marina Bay Sands’ chief operating officer, Paul Town.
“Marina Bay Sands has made significant progress in delivering new world-leading luxury travel experiences over the past two years.
“This second phase of reinvestment will be critical as it propels the property to new heights and places us in a strong position to capture future growth opportunities.”
Upgrades scheduled for phase two are expected to be complete in 2025.
The Marina Bay Sands integrated resort sits alongside the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, which offers 250 meeting rooms and 24 ballrooms, including the largest ballroom in Southeast Asia, the Sands Grand Ballroom, at 7,672m2.
