One of the luxuries of staying in a fabulous hotel in the tropics is spending a leisurely few hours chilling by the pool. If this sounds like your idea of holiday bliss, then check out our roundup of five of the best hotel swimming pools in Singapore:
Marina Bay Sands
The rooftop pool on the 57th floor of the Marina Bay Sands hotel has been grabbing headlines since it opened in 2010. This 150m long infinity pool with skyline views provides some of the best photo opportunities anywhere in Singapore.
The Fullerton Bay Hotel
The Fullerton Bay Hotelswimming pool may not boast the vertiginous location of its Marina Bay neighbour, but it still wows with its views. Strategically placed in-pool loungers, private Jacuzzis and the über-cool poolside Lantern bar encourage seriously cool lounging with cocktail in hand.
As befitting its colonial heritage, the Fullerton Hotel’s infinity pool peers over the Singapore River to the surrounding neo-classical buildings of the Colonial District. The juxtaposition of the hotel’s Doric columns and the towering skyscrapers of the financial district provide a uniquely Singaporean backdrop.
Sentosa’s swankiest resort also boasts its coolest swimming pool. This cascading pool on three levels is nestled in amongst lush tropical rainforest, and enjoys views out over the South China Sea. Look out for wandering peacocks and monkeys!
One of Singapore’s leading boutique hotels, Naumi, also has an infinity rooftop pool to be proud of. Curl up with your loved one in one of their Dedon sundeck beds and soak in the Singapore skyline.
