PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay: Discovering Tranquility in the Heart of Singapore

Ideal for aficionados of fine dining, the hotel's location exudes the ambiance of a serene oasis within the lively backdrop of Marina Bay's urban landscape.




Passing through the doors of PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore, feels like stepping into a tranquil oasis amidst the bustling cityscape of Marina Bay. Nestled within the vibrant Marina Square, this eco-friendly retreat offers weary travelers a haven of serenity and style, where every detail is meticulously crafted to harmonize with nature.




Ode to Nature – more than the interior design

Following a remarkable $45 million refurbishment in 2020, the hotel embodies a seamless blend of modern luxury and sustainable design, envisioned by the renowned late architect John Portman. From the moment you enter the light-filled lobby, adorned with lush indoor greenery and glass greenhouses, you're enveloped in a sense of calm and rejuvenation.


One of the hotel's standout features is its commitment to sustainability. Rooftop solar panels harness the sun's energy, while biodegradable alternatives replace plastic items throughout the property. An urban farm on the rooftop cultivates over 60 varieties of vegetables, herbs, and flowers, ensuring fresh farm-to-table offerings in the onsite restaurants and bars.


The eco-conscious ethos extends to every corner of the hotel, from energy-efficient digesters that process food waste to water filtration systems in every room, eliminating the need for plastic bottles. Even the stunning rooftop pool, illuminated by low-energy fiber optic lights, reflects the hotel's dedication to eco-friendly practices.


So, the stay is...



Ah, stepping into my room at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay felt like entering a realm of tranquility amidst the vibrant bustle of Singapore. The sleek, modern design coupled with the panoramic views of the city skyline created an atmosphere of utter relaxation.




Gazing out from my room, the view of Marina Bay and the iconic Singapore skyline was nothing short of breathtaking. The shimmering waters of the bay danced under the sunlight, while the majestic Marina Bay Sands stood tall, its distinct silhouette against the horizon. As day turned to night, the cityscape transformed into a dazzling spectacle of lights. Skyscrapers illuminated in a kaleidoscope of colors, creating a mesmerizing display that painted the sky. The Singapore Flyer, like a giant ferris wheel, added to the enchantment, offering a bird's-eye view of the bustling city below. With each glance out the window, I was reminded of the vibrant energy and dynamic spirit of Singapore. It was a view that captivated my senses and left me in awe of the beauty that surrounded me!





And oh, the swimming pool! It was a true oasis nestled amidst the urban landscape. The cool water enveloped me as I swam, offering a refreshing escape from the tropical heat. Surrounded by lush greenery and the glittering skyscrapers, I felt like I was swimming in a hidden paradise.



During my stay at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, I discovered that the hotel goes beyond being an eco-conscious haven; it's a sanctuary for relaxation and luxury. As a guest in one of their Collection Club Rooms, I was treated to their exclusive "Sleep Ritual" turndown service, a delightful experience reserved for guests in higher room categories and esteemed members of Pan Pacific Discovery. Fresh herbs like thyme, bergamot lime, mint, and rosemary, sourced directly from the hotel's Urban Farm, adorned my room alongside a soothing tea set and scented pillow pouch. Rubbing the fragrant herb leaves released a therapeutic aroma, ensuring a night of restful sleep and waking up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated the next morning.


Additionally, I was impressed by the hotel's dedication to conscious dining and sustainable practices. At Peppermint restaurant and Portman’s Bar, I indulged in a dining experience that showcased locally-sourced fresh produce and farm-to-table harvests. Each dish was thoughtfully crafted to promote sustainability and healthy consumption, accompanied by a cocktail or mocktail made with freshly picked ingredients from the hotel's Urban Farm. It was a culinary journey that not only delighted my taste buds but also left me feeling good about my dining choices, knowing that I was supporting eco-friendly initiatives while enjoying exquisite flavors.




Dining at the hotel is a culinary journey, with six unique venues offering a diverse range of cuisines, from progressive Chinese delicacies to succulent steakhouse favorites. Whether you're savoring sushi at Sushi Jiro or enjoying craft cocktails at the Skyline Bar, every meal is an exquisite experience.



The hotel's atrium, one of the largest in Southeast Asia, is a sight to behold. Adorned with over 2,400 plants and featuring a stunning suspended floral sculpture by Richard Lippold, it's a breathtaking showcase of nature-inspired architecture. And don't miss the nightly light show, a mesmerizing display of color and music that transforms the atrium into a captivating spectacle.




As you ascend through the hotel's finely curated hierarchy of rooms and suites, each accommodation offers a unique blend of modern comforts and timeless elegance. Whether you're admiring the bay views from your room or unwinding in the stylish interiors, every moment at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay is a testament to luxury and refinement.
