When the words lavish and decadent are understatements, you know a place is extraordinary. It's hard to know where to begin at the Moshe Safdie-designed Marina Bay Sands. For starters, seekers of the good life will find a spectacular infinity pool that soars above the city, a wow-factor Banyan Tree spa and the 50,000-square-foot ArtScience Museum built in the shape of a lotus. There are also high-end productions ranging from The Sound of Music to Beatlemania and a collection of large-scale installations that make this sprawling property feel like a living art gallery. In the realm of fine dining, expect the best, including outposts of Wolfgang Puck's CUT, Mario Batali's Osteria Mozza and Daniel Boulud's db bistro moderne. As for the casino, it holds its own in this extravagant setting, with more than 2,300 slots and almost 500 gaming tables.
