Mandarin Oriental, Singapore

A contemporary Marina Bay hotel
Contemporary Asian style and a stunning outdoor pool make Mandarin Oriental, Singapore stand out among the city’s Marina Bay hotels. The atrium-style lobby is impressive, allowing a soaring view to the top floor.

Take the pod-like glass elevators to the open corridors and the sophisticated guest rooms, where Asian accessories and motifs complement the silk accents, streamlined furniture and views of the city, harbor and ocean.

One of the best ways to take in the hotel’s skyline views is from the hotel’s pool, a modern oasis surrounded by private cabanas, which come with dimmer lighting, an iPod dock, Wi-Fi and an on-call button for refreshments.

After you work up an appetite doing laps in the lovely pool, head to the hotel’s ornate Cherry Garden restaurant, which serves authentic Cantonese cuisine, or Dolce Vita, which offers authentic Italian specialties with contemporary indoor or alfresco dining. No matter what you choose to do at the luxe hotel, from check-in to checkout, service is friendly and attentive.
