What Houzz contributors are saying:

The pool and park bridging the 55-story hotel towers follow a theme found throughout Singapore: creating a new ground plane raised well above sidewalk level. It is the stuff of science fiction (think of the raised walkways in the silent film Metropolis), but in Singapore it is a reality — if one predicated on money and linking private enclaves rather than the public realm.The rooftop infinity edge pool is one reason people opt to stay at Marina Bay Sands. It offers dramatic views of downtown, though it is not a place for the vertiginous. I wasn't a guest, so in this photo I'm peering in from the adjacent public deck.
