The Exceptional Bay Symphony at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore

Perched atop the 23rd floor of the newly revamped Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, the Royal Marina Bay Penthouse offers a truly unparalleled vista of the city’s iconic Marina Bay skyline. This exclusive 380 sqm, four-bedroom enclave stands as the sole hotel penthouse on the island to boast an unobstructed panoramic view of both the glittering skyline and the South China Sea from its expansive balcony.

In a unique fusion of architecture and music, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore has collaborated with acclaimed pianist and composer Jonathan Shin to craft The Exceptional Bay Symphony. This bespoke piece of music, initially composed on the piano and later adapted for a full orchestra, translates the awe-inspiring view into a melodic narrative. Shin, renowned for his international performances, aimed to capture the profound sense of wonder he experienced upon witnessing the breathtaking panorama from the Royal Marina Bay Penthouse.
The Orchestra of The Music Makers, a group of dedicated volunteer musicians from Singapore, brings Shin’s composition to life, showcasing their versatility across various musical genres. The symphony serves as a tribute to the hotel’s recent transformation and reopening, symbolising a commitment to delivering exceptional experiences and world-class hospitality.
Designed by Jeffrey Wilkes, the Royal Marina Bay Penthouse stands as a testament to luxury living, offering a double frontage view that spans from the Singapore Flyer to the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay. Philipp Knuepfer, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, describes The Exceptional Bay Symphony as a celebration of the hotel’s new chapter, promising to continually deliver exceptional experiences to guests. This harmonious convergence of architecture and music marks a milestone in Mandarin Oriental, Singapore’s ongoing journey of redefining luxury and reopens its doors with a commitment to providing an ‘Exceptionally Singapore’ experience.
