Marina Bay Sands has recently added Renku, its premium hotel and bar lounge to the integrated resort’s exciting portfolio of food and beverage offerings. Featuring a first-of-its-kind high tea experience, Renku offers exquisite delicacies and Asian-inspired creations along with a personal tableside service that allows guests to create
artisanal tea blends to their liking.

As the only lounge at Marina Bay Sands that operates 24 hours, Renku’s drinks and dining menu will satisfy guests’ cravings throughout the day. At night, Renku transforms into an intimate lounge and bar offering a wide range of signature cocktails, locally crafted draft beers, and innovative concoctions.

Deeply rooted in the spirit of traditional collaborative poetry, Renku, which seats 100 guests, exemplifies the artistic expression of nature through its serene décor and ambience. Nestled in the grand hotel lobby of Marina Bay Sands, the bar and lounge features elements of nature through its oak and lush furnishings, with shades of bronze and grey for a touch of modern elegance. The lounge area is artfully designed with small clusters of plush armchairs, offering guests an intimate setting for gatherings in comfort and style.

The crown jewel of Renku’s offering is its revolutionary afternoon high tea, where professional Tea Masters are on hand to provide personalized tableside service and recommend tea blends to cater to individual preferences. Tea connoisseurs can also choose to customize their own tea by pairing their favorite tea base (green, white or black) with fresh herbs and flowers from Marina Bay Sands’ own herb garden. Selections include the butterfly blue pea flower, rosemary, and kaffir lime.
