Opulent Singapore hotel goes all out on sumptuous external renovation 

Luxury 5-star hotel Mandarin Oriental on Marina Bay, Singapore, has recently undergone an expansive renovation to its pool deck and external relaxation space. Hong Kong-based firms BUZ Design and St. Legere were commissioned to work in unison to reform the outside space around the hotel to match the high standards visitors expect from a luxury hotel chain.

Opulent cabanas dot the open space, equipped with vast mattresses, iPod and data outlets and personal call bells to summon staff. Guests are now greeted with multiple lounger options, from those on the edge of the glittering purple pool to those partially submerged within it. An additional oversized cabana serves as a communal living room during daylight hours and transforms into an outdoor dining facility catering for special events at night. The aforementioned lilac pool now features an array of waterfalls, jets and built-in benches to be used for back and neck massages, whilst in a separate ‘kiddy pool’, children can be entertained with fountains and bubblers.

Whilst the high quality design work truly is top drawer, the whole complex is offset by the majestic backdrop of the Singapore skyline. From the freshly completed Marina Bay Sands project across the water to the infamous Singapore Flyer, the newly renovated Mandarin Oriental pool deck provides a relaxing platform from which to view the ever-shifting Singaporean horizon.
