Shopping at Marina Bay Sands
Located at the heart of the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort are The Shoppes at Marina Bay, one of the largest and most opulent shopping destinations in Asia, featuring a mix of international luxury brands, cutting-edge labels, and emerging designers.
The Shoppes houses more than 270 boutiques spread across nearly 800,000 square feet of retail space. You’ll find a wide range of high-end retailers here, including brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, Chanel, and many more. Which is why certain outlets have unique themes to help themselves stand out.
Here’s a peek at what shopaholics can expect at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
- Apple Store (World’s first floating Apple Store)
- Gentle Monster (Apocalyptic future theme)
- Louis Vuitton (Nautical-themed luxury yacht interior)
- Dior (Two outlets at MBS)
The Apple Store at Marina Bay Sands is an architectural marvel that sits majestically on the water, connected to The Shoppes via a walkway. That’s right, this Apple floats on the water – the first ever in the world. The store’s spherical design, entirely surrounded by glass, offers 360-degree panoramic views of the city and its skyline, transforming the retail experience into a visual spectacle.
But look past all the iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks, as the uniqueness of this Apple Store extends beyond its design. Inside, you’ll find an underwater boardroom accessible via an underground tunnel, a dedicated space for entrepreneurs and developers to receive training and advice from Apple team members.

South Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster is known for its avant-garde designs and immersive retail concepts. Each Gentle Monster store is unique, offering not just eyewear but also an artistic experience that often feels more like a modern art installation than a traditional retail store.
The Gentle Monster store at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is no exception. Based on the ‘13’ project, the store imagines an Earth devastated by extreme ecological change. The result? Harsh landscapes, broken antennas, and an overall sense of dread. Grim indeed.

Designed by the award-winning architect Peter Marino, the distinctive glass and steel structure is the world’s only floating Louis Vuitton boutique.
