Hotel[edit]

Designed by John Portman, the 26-year-old hotel has one of the largest open atriums in Southeast Asia, which rises through 21 levels and is permeated by natural light. Each of the 575 rooms is accessed from the balconies overlooking the atrium, and has views of the Singapore harbour and the city skyline.

Restaurants[edit]

The Marina Mandarin Singapore has a selection of dining options.

AquaMarine

AquaMarine is a unique concept restaurant with an alfresco dining area. The restaurant has received Halal certification for all its food stations, including the central kitchen, from the Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS), Singapore's Islamic council, in August 2011.

Peach Blossoms

Set against the modern Chinese contemporary interiors of the restaurant, Peach Blossoms has expanded its seating capacity from 160 to 170 to accommodate more reservations and walk-in diners. It also has four private dining rooms.

The Dim Sum menu is equally interesting, with a unique adaptation to traditional dim sums, such as Deep-fried Foie Gras Roll with Cheese and Mixed Fruits and Steamed Crystal Dumplings with Black Truffles and Mushrooms (Dim sum selections are available during lunch only).

Atrium Lounge

The Atrium Lounge has the chirping of Asian exotic birds. Songbirds are an Asian pastime and bird-keeping is an intricate part of Singapore's culture and history. Marina Mandarin honours this tradition with prized songbirds such as Chinese Nightingale and Bulbur, well taken care of by professional bird keeper who attends to them daily.

Tsukiji SushiDai

Executive Chef Fumikazu Ohnuki operates the first Tsukiji SushiDai in Singapore. All seafood is directly imported from Japan's Tsukiji market, for the authentic tastes of Japanese cuisine

Ruth's Chris Steak House

Ruth's Chris Steak House, an upscale steakhouse restaurant chain with over 130 international locations, opened its first restaurant in Southeast Asia in Marina Mandarin Singapore. The restaurant specialises in broiling custom-aged USDA prime beef in its trademark 982.2 °C oven. Each steak is served on a sizzling 260.0 °C plate to ensure quality and consistency.

Café Mocha

Café Mocha features a range of barista coffee, sandwiches, desserts and signature chicken pie. Café Mocha also provides catering service for corporate events, luncheons, and meetings.
