Arrived in the 17/03/13 after being at Hong Kong & Borneo. Very smooth check in and surprised to find we had a butler ( Nikki ), who walked us to our room. Nice room with separate sitting room. We went to the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling. We had breakfast in the Tiffin Room on the first morning which was very enjoyable. On the second morning we went to the little bakery shop which was very nice, we also had a sandwich and cake which were really nice.
We paid to keep the room on on the last day until 6.00pm but was a little surprised the room was not serviced early and when they came at 4.00pm to service the room we were trying to have a rest.
We went to see the gardens by the bay which was really nice, however only one of the domes was open which was a little disappointing.
Recommend you go to the top of the Marine Sands Hotel about 58 floors high for spectacular views
