largest-outdoor-pool-1.jpg It’s finally happened! The $5.95 billion Marina
Bay Sands Hotel
, Singapore finally opened its doors to public in a gala
event, and it also managed to dethrone the
Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi
from its position as the world’s most
expensive hotel. But that’s not all, the main attraction of the hotel is a 650ft
wide pool perched up at the 55th storey of the magnificent hotel, making it the
largest outdoor pool in the world that high. Called as the Infinity pool, the
drop at the edge of the pool spills into a three-tiered catchment which pumps
water right back to the main pool! The hotel also has a boat-shaped ‘SkyPark’ on
top of the three towers. The hotel features 2,560 rooms that would cost you $520
a night. Designed by Moshe Safdie, the structure is said to be based on the
design resembling a deck of cards. The hotel décor includes an indoor canal that
has Sampan boats to ride in, a casino, an outdoor plaza, a convention centre, a
theatre, a crystal pavilion and a lotus flower shaped museum. The resort will
open employment to over 10,000 locals, enough to generate $72m each year.
