Nestled in the tranquil Serene Garden with an intimate view of the spectacular Supertrees and the Marina Bay financial district skyline, Garden Pod offers a unique stay like no other at Gardens by the Bay, a verdant jewel in the heart of Singapore’s bustling downtown.
Designed by President’s Design Award winner LAUD Architects, Garden Pod offers the best in sustainable style. Taking a leaf from the design of Gardens by the Bay’s Serene Garden, Garden Pod’s architecture is similarly inspired by the Japanese zen style - with a green spin. The duplexes are fashioned from the repurposed 40-footer containers that have been given a classy facelift. They are also outfitted with photovoltaic panels that harvest clean solar energy that powers the duplexes, keeping carbon and waste footprints to a minimum.
Enjoy a luxurious selection of room supplies at the Garden Pod. Handcrafted by local artisans, each item is thoughtfully curated to create a memorable and immersive guest experience.
