It’s been a pipe dream of ours to one day splurge and stay in a ridiculously expensive hotel room worth thousands of dollars per night.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to do this in Singapore.
But we were lucky enough to step inside the Straits Suite at the luxurious Marina Bay Sands and take a look around a suite priced at $7,000 a night. Immediately after entering the 330-square meter suite on the 52rd floor, we were in total awe…
The living area of the suite was at least four times the size of a typical hotel room and even came complete with a baby grand piano in the corner!
Floor-to-ceiling windows provided an excellent panoramic vantage point over Marina Bay and the Singapore skyline. Imagine how great the view would be when the sun goes down.
The Master Bedroom was massive with a king bed and walk-in closet that made Amy green with envy. We would’ve been happy with this room alone! But there was still plenty more of the suite to explore…
A second bedroom was just as nice with two king beds and would’ve made it perfect for friends, family or our future entourage when we can afford a room like this.
Then there were the bathrooms which came with jacuzzi bathtubs, rain showers and double sinks.
As great as the bedrooms and bathrooms were, it was the extras that made this suite super impressive. The media room looked like a fantastic place to relax after a big day and came complete with microphones ready for karaoke.
A home office with an executive work desk meant there was a place to get all our work done… like we would be doing any work if we were staying here, though!
We would definitely be taking advantage of the exercise room though with an elliptical machine and massage area. The staff from the Banyan Tree Spa are available for hire and will come up to your suite for massages when you need them. Wouldn’t mind of those right now, actually.
We’re not even sure that we got to see the entire suite – we honestly got lost a couple of times in the enormity of it all!
Some of the other features of the Straits Suite include:
- Pantry with fridge and microwave.
- Powder room with adjoining salon.
- Touch-screen for lights.
- Direct dial to a 24-hour Butler Command Center.
We’ll never to be able justify spending $7,000 a night for a hotel room but it was amazing seeing how the rich and famous live while they’re on the road.
What’s the most you would pay to stay in a suite like this at Marina Bay Sands?
