The most luxurious Shoppes in Singapore

3 minutes to read

The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands has been designed as Singapore's ultra-luxurious retail and entertainment destination. The space is grand, expansive, and designed to let in plenty of natural light. Dressed in a neutral colour palette, and with many decorative water features, the space exudes a sense of calm and quiet that relaxes the senses. It is conveniently located at the doorstep of Bayfront MRT Station, and within the Marina Bay Sands complex that also houses the casino, convention centre, and hotel. Right outside is the Marina Bay waterfront promenade and the ArtScience Museum, making it convenient to visit all these attractions together.

The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is home to more than 170 luxury retail boutiques, and shoppers will be spoilt for choice. We have major high fashion houses such as Hermès, Gucci and Chanel, high-end jewellers and watchmakers like Chopard and Chaumet and bespoke perfumery Penhaligon’s. There is also the Louis Vuitton Island Maison, the first in Southeast Asia. It occupies a beautiful pavilion on the water that visitors can access through a linked tunnel, or by the outdoor bridge. Designed with a nautical theme, it embodies luxury and is also meant to be an experiential lifestyle space.

To complement the luxury boutiques, the interior design and decorative features of the mall are equally splendid. A canal runs through the mall, and it is possible to go on a sampan ride, similar to Venice's gondolas! Shoppers looking for a truly VIP experience can also make an appointment with the Shopping Concierge Service. Shoppers will enjoy a curated experience, and the concierge can also help to make reservations for dining or spa appointments.

Do not miss out on the Rain oculus- a spectacular piece of art by Ned Kahn and Moshe Safdie. It is a stunning water fountain that collects rainwater from above and sends it whirling down into the mall below, much to the delight of diners and shoppers.

An elegant evening at the theatre

Step into the lavish grand foyer of The Mastercard Theatres, and into a world of glamour and sophistication. It boasts state-of-the-art facilities and elegant interior design. The event calendar is regularly filled with the very best of major international productions and musicals, including The Lion King, Wicked, Cats, Matilda, Notre Dame de Paris, and Mamma Mia.

Dining experiences

You can be assured that you will dine in style at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Just take your pick from one of the many premium dining options. The fine dining restaurants here are run by some of the biggest names in the industry, including CUT by Wolfgang Puck, Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay, Adrift by David Myers, and db Bistro and Oyster Bar by Daniel Boulud. If wanting to spend some time chatting with friends, it is also very pleasant to enjoy a leisurely afternoon tea at one of the tea houses located above the canal. It replicates the feeling of sitting in an al fresco cafe above the water, but in a lovely, cool, climate controlled environment. Sip tea while indulging in dainty finger sandwiches, scones and cakes from TWG tea salon and boutique or Angelina. For local fare, there is the Rasapura Masters food court located at the basement of The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. With plenty of seating and a good variety of options, it is a great place to grab a quick, casual meal, and is considerably more affordable than other dining options in this mall. Do note though that prices at Rasapura Masters food court are still much higher than most other food courts in Singapore
