The resort is designed by Moshe Safdie , who says it was initially inspired by card decks. The casino has a four-storey central atrium with four levels of gaming and entertainment in one space.
The resort's architecture and major design changes along the way were also approved by its feng shui consultants, the late Chong Swan Lek and Louisa Ong-Lee. The main contractor was Ssangyong Engineering and Construction. The three towers are broader at the base and narrow as they rise. Each tower has two asymmetric legs, with a curved eastern leg leaning against the other, creating a significant technical challenge in its construction. Substantial temporary structures were necessary to support the legs of the tower while they were under construction, and required real-time monitoring for continual assessment and analyses in the course of their erection.
A distinctive feature of the hotel is the SkyPark, a three-acre park on top of the building with swimming pools, gardens, and jogging paths. The structure bridges all three towers with a segment cantilevered off the north tower. The hull of the SkyPark was pre-fabricated off-site in 14 separate steel sections and then assembled on top of the towers. The total range of motion is millimetres 20 inches.
In addition to wind, the hotel towers are also subject to settlement in the earth over time, so engineers built and installed custom jack legs to allow for future adjustment at more than points beneath the pool system. This jacking system is important primarily to ensure the infinity edge of the pool continues to function properly.
Marina Bay Sands was originally planned to be completed in a single phase in ,  but rising construction costs and the financial crisis forced the company to open it in phases.
