Hotel resort in the middle of a huge city.
Singapore Marina Bay Sands hotel can be called the most unusual hotel in the world.
Still in the process of construction it became clear that Marina Bay Sands will be the most expensive hotel in the world. The American company Las Vegas Sands, owner of a chain of casinos in Las Vegas, invested in the construction of its Singapore project is 5.5 billion US dollars (sometimes indicated by a figure of 8 billion dollars, however this sum in Singapore dollars). In fact, this Grand Singapore complex (which includes a 2561-room hotel, the world’s largest outdoor pool, shops, 250 Banquet and meeting rooms, 2000 exhibition booths, kids ‘ club, fitness club, 2 theaters, an ice skating rink) built for the casino, which Las Vegas Sands expects to recoup the construction of the hotel. The owners of Marina Bay Sands expect earnings from the casino would be less than 1 billion US dollars per year and the cost of construction of this complex will pay off in just 5 years. Singapore has legalized gambling only in 2005, hoping for the casino to attract tourists. And the move paid off: after the construction in 2010, Marina Bay Sands, the influx of tourists to Singapore increased by 24 %. Marina Bay Sands, an area of 15 thousand square meters, which houses more than 600 tables and 2,300 slot machines, daily visited by 25 thousand people. Visiting casinos is expensive: the only entrance to the casino need to pay $ 100. Singaporeans account for a third of the casino visitors, so they are more suitable for daily entrance fees, and a six-month membership, which costs 2 thousand dollars.
However, the casino itself is not able to attract large number of tourists, so the creators of Marina Bay Sands decided to hit all the amazing architectural concept: three 200-foot towers on 55 floors there is a huge pool where the water seems to be leaking over the horizon. In fact, water poured over the edge into a catchment below, from where is pumped back. In addition to the pool, on the roof of the complex there are gardens. The creators of Marina Bay Sands as if brought back to life one of the seven ancient wonders of the world – the hanging gardens of Babylon.
