The Westin SingaporeSingapore
Located right in the heart of the Central Business District and close to Marina Bay, the small but spectacular infinity pool at The Westin Singapore offers some stunning views out to sea - on a clear day, you can even see all the way across to the neighbouring islands in Indonesia.
Next to the pool are a luxurious Jacuzzi and plenty of sun loungers where you can sip a drink whilst taking in the scenery. As a Starwood brand hotel, service here is as impeccable as ever, and the rest of this five-star hotel is just as impressive as the pool, which is perched on the 35th floor of the building.

W Singapore - Sentosa CoveSingapore
This seaside spot has made our list of the best hotel pools in Singapore for a whole host of reasons. The freeform design that sweeps around the hotel complex will instantly make you want to jump in while the lush garden backdrop - complete with palm trees and the sea lapping at the shoreline just a few metres away - will all make you feel like you’ve completely escaped the big, bad city.
We also love the decked walkway with seating that becomes illuminated at night; a perfect place to come for cocktails and watch the sunset over Sentosa Island. The sizeable harbour is right next door to W Singapore, and many of the large rooms here take full advantage of the picturesque views with some particularly impressive floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel also offers a free shuttle service around all the beaches of Sentosa and over to the mainland, too. Read More...
ONE15 Marina ClubSingapore
The pool at ONE15 Marina Club is another Sentosa spot to make our list of the best pools in Singapore, taking full advantage of some smart views across the nearby harbour.
A real standout feature of this pool is its glass wall on one side, allowing you to see into the pool when standing outside, or look outside when you’re swimming underwater. Elsewhere at this modern five-star hotel, there’s a fine-dining restaurant, fitness room and bar. ONE15 Marina Club is particularly popular for its yacht club, with up to 11 boats docked in the nearby harbour at any time. You can charter your own and set sail for one of the nearby islands, Indonesia, Malalysia or even Thailand – all directly from the hotel! Read More...
PARKROYAL on PickeringSingapore
Parkroyal in Pickering prides itself on being a particularly green hotel - quite literally - with its unique external layered garden and walls draped in frangipani and palm trees.
The swimming pool blends in effortlessly with the handsome design of the hotel, offering an infinity edge overlooking the city as well as a central walkway to a private enclosed space, alongside a stylish wooden deck with rows of sun loungers. There is also a poolside bar, where you can order yourself a cocktail – the perfect way to spend an evening as the sun sets over Singapore.

The Fullerton Bay HotelSingapore
With unobstructed views of Marina Bay, the ultra-luxurious pool at The Fullerton Bay Hotel is widely-regarded as one of the best hotel pools in Singapore. Only hotel guests can swim, but other visitors are welcome to enjoy one of the numerous restaurants and bars that surround the picturesque pool within the hotel grounds.
Night time offers the best photo opportunities, with the sun is setting over the bay or the light show from Marina Bay Sands across the water illuminating the Fullerton’s pool in spectacular fashion. As well as being one of the most exclusive hotels in Singapore, The Fullerton Bay is one of the best-placed, located just a short walk from the popular Raffles Place MRT station and major attractions such as Clarke Quay, the Asian Civilisations Museum and The Merlion.

SO Sofitel SingaporeSingapore
Marina Bay Sands is home to the most famous hotel swimming pool in Singapore, and for good reason. At a whopping 150 metres long and 57 storeys high, it is both the highest and the largest infinity pool in the whole world – and probably the most photographed, too.
When the hotel first opened in 2010, the pool was open to the public (for a fee). Since then, probably due to overcrowding, the iconic pool is now reserved for hotel guests only. However, this huge three-pronged building overlooking the harbour has much more to offer if you don’t have a room for the night, including their glamorous KU DE TA rooftop bar, an observation deck, a casino and a shopping mall on the ground.

Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach RoadSingapore
Small but sweet, the gorgeous swimming pool at Pan Pacific presents some delightful views across Singapore. Take a dip after dark, and you’ll see the city lit up in spectacular fashion, with the glowing Singapore Flyer, Gardens by the Bay and CBD skyline all in sight from the pool’s infinity edge.
The sophisticated rich brown decking by the pool also makes a great place to sunbath during the day, or take a cocktail at night. Located just a short walk from Bugis MRT and close to Beach Road, the south-facing pool also looks out to sea and, on a clear day, you’ll be able to spot the Indonesian islands in the distance, as well as all the giant cargo ships dotted around the busy Singapore harbour. Read More...
Crowne Plaza Changi AirportSingapore
The pool at Crowne Plaza Changi is a plane-spotter’s paradise, with views overlooking the airport, which is literally next door. You can watch the planes taking off from the water and also admire the airport’s control tower, which can be seen from the pool area. The long stretch of pool is fringed by tropical palm trees, making this Crowne Plaza feel a lot less stuffy than your traditional airport hotel.
The large four-star hotel is actually connected to Changi Airport, making is the obvious choice for visitors in transit, or those needing to access the airport late at night or early in the morning. Elsewhere, you’ll also find the stylish Bar 75 and the Imperial Treasure restaurant that has a buffet of international-style cuisine along with a Cantonese-style menu. Read More...
Hotel Fort CanningSingapore
This well-designed freeform pool enjoys a particularly unique location in Singapore – right in the middle of the lush Fort Canning Park. The surrounding gardens, green hills and tropical palm trees will all take you back to a time when Singapore was an undeveloped dot of land on the Malaysian Peninsular, rather than the sprawling metropolis that it is now.
As well as the pool, guests staying at Fort Canning Hotel can enjoy either Southern Italian cuisine at Gattopardo or some modern Asian food at The Glass House. There’s also Tisettanta Lounge or The Glass House Bar for drinks, both located in the pristine hotel grounds. Read More...
