Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands integrated resort has embarked on a US$1 billion reinvestment to “significantly elevate luxury and lifestyle offerings”.
The phased renovation will take place over 2022 and 2023 and will involve an extensive upgrade of all hotel rooms and suites in Towers 1 and 2 of the hotel, and the creation of new F&B offerings.
The resort will also offer new luxury lifestyle amenities for high-value travellers, with the 55th floor of all three hotel towers seeing a revamped executive club lounge, premium fine dining, and health and wellness offerings. Further details on this will be announced “at a later date”.
This marks the biggest investment since the resort opened in 2010, and is in addition to the multi-billion-dollar expansion announced in April 2019, which will include the development of a state-of-the-art entertainment arena, a luxury hotel tower and additional MICE facility adjacent to the resort.
Robert G Goldstein, Las Vegas Sands’ chairman and CEO, commented:
“We are firmly of the view that Asia will continue to lead as a primary driver of growth in travel, and Singapore will remain a top destination of choice. Our reinvestment as well as our planned multi-billion-dollar expansion that we announced in 2019 represent a further demonstration of our long-term support for Singapore. It reaffirms our confidence in the future and our commitment to offering industry-leading luxury products and hospitality experiences to our guests.”
Paul Town, Marina Bay Sands’ chief operating officer, added:
“Marina Bay Sands’ new room and suite offerings will bring luxury lifestyle experiences not seen in the market before, as we reimagine the future of luxury hospitality and travel. We are excited to unveil them to guests from around the world in the months ahead as international travel returns following the easing of border restrictions. Singapore has been a leader in working towards the safe return of global travel through its Vaccinated Travel Lanes, and we are grateful to the Government for its calibrated approach and unwavering support for the industry.”
The reinvestment comes as the resort enters its second decade of operations following its tenth anniversary in 2020. Since its opening, the property has seen over 380 million visitors and attracted over 1,000 MICE events to Singapore.
Meanwhile parent company Las Vegas Sands is investing US$2.2 billion in The Londoner Macao, Grand Suites at Four Seasons Macao and The Londoner Court. The company also operates The Venetian Resort and Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
