I was searching for a good restaurant on trip advisor and Dolce Vita caught my eye and I decided to give it a try. The service we had was simply stunning. Attentive but not intrusive, giving advise and guidance on the menu and their recommendations were spot on.

The restaurant is situated on the pool deck of the hotel. It has both indoor and outdoor tables. We opted for the latter, as it was not excessively humid, and there was a gentle breeze blowing. We both opted for the 3 course set menu; the food was of a uniformly stellar quality, probably as good as Italian restaurant cuisine... More

Some good friends offered me a gift card for any service or restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental. My wife and I decided to visit Dolce Vita with our son (13) and daughter (16). Our reservation was for 6:30 p.m., the hour at which dining begins. However, we arrived early. The manager received us graciously at 5:30 p.m. and we ordered... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
