Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Did they shoot that with a disposable camera, take a picture of an architectural model, or just badly photoshop it?For a real place, that shot looks fake as hell, because you don't get focal distance blur when the whole picture is at infinity distance. The only way I'd buy it would be if the guy in the Godzilla suit was leaning on the model.
It's located at: 10 Bayfront Ave, Singapore 018956, Tel: +65 6688 8868. Call 'em and ask if they're real.
I’m pretty sure the photo is doctored up with an Instagram filter or some such.
@BSB,I don't doubt the hotel is real.But the picture has been seriously jarked.
Check out the movie "Crazy Rich Asians", there is a scene with the hotel in it.
I’ve had a Singapore Sling at the tip in the foreground. It’s an engineering wonder and you can find out all about it in the first episode of the 2017 season of Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby.
@Aesop: the effect is generically called "toy camera effect" and yes, it's either image-processed post-facto ("Photoshopped") or done at taking stage using a deliberately shitty lens.Re Crazy Rich Asians (about appalling* overseas Chinese people), I looove the fact that the male "Asian" romantic lead is mixed English/Dayak without any Chinese in him at all.* I know the movie is exaggerated, but there is a reason the Malays (and other SE Asians) hate their local Chinese who are viewed as grasping, crass, nepotistic, and contemptuous of their host societies (who are considered kinda subhuman by the Chinese). Since I'm unloading opinions, at least that hotel is not as dreadful as the typical Frank Gehry monstrosity. But it's close.
Amazing place!Wife and I were there a few years ago.What the photo DOESN'T show is:* A 3-story shopping mall (ie: Gucci, Louis Vuitton, etc)* A full size casino* A modern railway station...all UNDERNEATH the hotel!...and gigantic and beautiful garden (multiple acres) to the rear!Absolutely gorgeous place to visit, but it is pricey and that 16hr flight in coach is a killer!
The A-350 ULR planes that SingaporeAir uses have a few rows of business class and the rest of the plane is premium economy. Makes it a lot more comfortable.

I visited the Marina Bay Sands back in 2011. There are infinity pools on the roof that will blow your mind. A thunderstorm blew in and there was so much static electricity in the air that the girls’ hairs were standing on end. S’pore is an amazing city.
