With a spectacular array of retail outlets, a roof top amphitheatre, a play area for kids and mega food courts, VivoCity caters to every whim and fancy. Featuring unconventional architecture and the spectacular view of the waterfront, the mall inspired by vivacity lives up to its name to enthrall a visitor with a new perspective on luxurious lifestyles. It simply refuses to be merely a collection of upscale retail stores, as it offers so much to upgrade your lifestyle or uplift your mood from fine dining at one of the elegant restaurants to rejuvenating yourself at the sky park.

Built on the Harbour Front precinct next to the Sentosa Island, the unusual architecture of the mall designed by architect Toyo inspires a sense of liberty, vivacity and energy that breathes well in the wide open spaces, the unrestricted balconies and even the amphitheatre on the roof top and the waterfront. The interiors are opulent and spacious as well, lined with luxurious retail options that have their own breathing space, unobtrusive but very elegant with sophistication downgraded to create more effect from less. There is a range of activities that can be enjoyed apart from simple shopping. This includes some fabulous dining, enjoying some superb entertainment in the amphitheatre and an open play ground to allow children to let down their hair and have complete fun and adventure with their counterparts.

In addition, the promenade and the wading pool on the third floor offer spaces that children would instantly fall in love with. The cinema multiplex offers entertainment with sophisticated technology including one of the largest cinema screens in all of Asia. When it comes to entertainment, there’s a fitness gym to several international grade spas to dance clubs and restaurants. The two giant food courts are a must-stop for exceptional dining experiences. All this in the backdrop of some serious shopping experience that includes a range of consumer goods, designer brands and items from fashion accessories to books to household items.

With such amazing options in shopping, the country doesn’t disappoint when a traveller seeks some international grade Singapore hotel accommodation. With sleek designer rooms, suites and apartments, the Studio M Hotel Singapore is a home away from home for business and leisure visitors and is a quality Singapore hotel to invest one’s time in.
