Marina Mandarin Singapore An award-winning five-star luxury hotel and a proud recipient of the Luxury Business Hotel award at the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2013, Marina Mandarin Singapore was also awarded one of the Top 20 Luxury Hotels in Singapore in the 2012 Travelers’ Choice Award and the Certificate of Excellence for three consecutive years by TripAdvisor, crowned the winner of Outstanding Luxury and Outstanding Value categories at the HotelClub Hotel Awards 2011, and has won six platinum awards, including General Manager of the Year, at the Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards (HAPA) Regional 2011-2013.

Enjoying an excellent location in the heart of the city, the hotel offers a breathtaking view of the Marina Bay and financial district, as well as convenient access to the Marina Square Shopping Mall, and is minutes away from Sands Expo & Convention Center and Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Directly opposite The Esplanade, Singapore’s performing arts centre, the hotel is also within walking distance to attractions such as Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore Flyer, and is perfectly situated right on the trackside of the annual Singapore Grand Prix Formula One race.

Designed by John Portman, the 26-year-old hotel has one of the largest open atriums in South-east Asia, which rises through 21 levels and is permeated by streams of natural light. Each of the 575 well-appointed rooms, including 22 suites and the exclusive Meritus Club floors, looks into this atrium and is complemented by views of the Singapore harbour and the city skyline. All rooms and suites are connected to wireless or broadband Internet access while the Meritus Club rooms and Suites are equipped with a personal Nespresso coffee maker, six-jet power shower and a plush Simmons 13-inch pillow top mattress for a good night’s rest.

Boasting award-winning meeting facilities that spell stylish versatility and welcomed convenience, the grand, pillar-free Marina Mandarin Ballroom can accommodate up to 700 people and the elegant Vanda Ballroom allows for a sizeable group of up to 300. In addition, a series of 12 meeting rooms located on levels 1 and 6 can accommodate smaller business style gatherings. Every meeting and function space is enhanced with advanced audio-visual equipment and wireless or broadband Internet access.

Dining

Besides the comforting rooms and well-equipped function space, Marina Mandarin Singapore also offers an excellent selection of dining options for the discerning diner.

AquaMarine

AquaMarine is a unique concept restaurant complemented by an alfresco dining area that beckon with an air of welcoming grace and relaxed charm.

Indulge in a resplendent buffet spread of Asian and International cuisines, or an enticing à la carte menu in the restaurant.

Look forward to a sumptuous spread featuring perennial favourites such as Singapore Chilli Crab, Lamb Rogan Josh, Seafood Au Gratin, a mouth-watering array of desserts, on top of many others. Choose from a wide selection of à la carte dishes including our local signatures like AquaMarine Jumbo Laksa and Hainanese Chicken Rice.

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. Its four private dining rooms have undergone facelifts and it is at each of these rooms that before the start of each meal every diner will be presented with a selection of up to 11 premium teas, ranging from Lion’s Peak Green Tea (狮峰龙井) to Yellow Treasure Flower Tea (桂花黄金).

The restaurant’s signature dishes include Double-Boiled Almond Soup with Fish Maw that uses ground fresh almond (instead of almond essence), which gives the Cantonese favourite more body and flavour. The Pan-fried Kurobuta Pork with Supreme Soya Sauce is a heady combination of the succulent fragrant flavours of the pork juxtaposed with robust taste of the sauce. 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 invites guests to relax amidst the chirping of Asian exotic birds with our wide selection of coffee, tea, specially concocted cocktails, as well as delectable homemade pastries and cakes. 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

Relish in the exquisite culinary touches of Executive Chef Fumikazu Ohnuki in the first Tsukiji SushiDai in Singapore. All seafood is directly imported from Japan's famous Tsukiji market, adding finesse and authenticity of Japanese fine dining at Marina Mandarin Singapore. Besides relishing the authentic tastes of Japanese cuisine, you'll also feel as if you're dining in Japan as Japanese touches throughout the restaurant from furnishings and decorations add to the warm and genuine Japanese-style hospitality.

Ruth's Chris Steak House

Ruth’s Chris Steak House, the world’s premier upscale steakhouse restaurant with over 130 international locations, opened its first restaurant in South-east Asia in Marina Mandarin Singapore. The restaurant specialises in broiling the finest custom-aged USDA prime beef in its trademark 982.2°C oven to lock in natural flavour and tenderness. Each signature steak is served on a sizzling 260.0°C plate to ensure utmost quality and consistency. While steak is king, the menu also includes seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic New Orleans dishes, appetisers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. To experience fine dining at its prime, simply follow the sizzle to Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
