Staycation: Marina Bay Sands Singapore

May 17, 2013

A couple of weekends ago, I got the chance for another staycation. This time, I headed to Marina Bay Sands Singapore because of all the good things I’d heard about the infinity pool at the top of the building (I got burnt but my face was saved by my foundation). We booked a deluxe room with a view of the city and were not disappointed. Upon check-in, the receptionist gave us a room on the 42nd floor!

I had a great time at Marina Bay Sands. Apart from the nice pool and room, I especially liked the shopping, which was just steps away from the hotel. Although I didn’t buy anything, The Shoppes gave me a vacationing feel because of the many tourists around.  I got sunburnt on the second day when we went to the pool. Miraculously, my face was the only part of my body that didn’t even tan! It’s all thanks to my Diorskin Forever Compact Foundation SPF 25 PA++. This is proof that BB creams and what nots are absolutely unnecessary money wasters. All I had on my face was a day moisturiser – with no sunscreen – and a layer of my foundation, applied with my Becca Retractable Kabuki Make-up Brush!

 

To be honest, the rooms here are a little overpriced. If I hadn’t got a corporate rate, I would have chosen to stay somewhere else. That said, the hotel is worth a visit if only just for the infinity pool experience. I might return!
