In less than 50 years of nationhood, Singapore has risen to become a first world powerhouse. It's home to the city-state’s Botanical Garden, the night zoo, and all the entertainment on Sentosa Island. Of course, you can experience endless shopping at every price point as well, and 24/7-dining.

With every top-rated hotel here boasting a luxury experience, your choices are just about limitless. But if being in the heart of the city and steps from Marina Bay sounds appealing to you, choosing the Forbes Five-Star Mandarin Oriental Singapore might be a wise choice. The sophisticated, understated entrance and lobby is filled with rich materials and striking Asian art. The serenity and cool elegance immediately puts you in a Zen frame of mind.

When it comes to dining, the Melt The World Café offers an interactive breakfast buffet and Axis Bar and Lounge serves creative cocktails alongside a bar menu. Plan to experience the ambience and cuisine of Cherry Garden, the Mandarin Oriental’s renowned Cantonese restaurant. Here the décor is reminiscent of a Chinese village inn’s interior space, while the food is a refined blend of global products cooked with authentic techniques.
