9 Hotel Pools In Singapore So Incredible You'd Rather Sleep There Than Your Actual Room

Who doesn’t love a pampering staycation? Aside from a beautifully decorated room that incites an involuntary made-for-tv bed dive moment upon check-in, a luxurious pool deck that screams all levels of extra must be in place - especially given the scorching temperatures nowadays. 

The infinity pool perched on MBS comes to mind when we think of mindblowing pool experiences but it’s hardly the only one. Besides, for perennially busy CBD-dwellers, do you really want to look out into the horizon only to have your office building stare right back at you?

From attached bars to triple-decked pools that takes you right outta Singapore, here are 9 hotel pools so amazing you’ll wanna check in just to check them out.

1. Capella Singapore

There’s much to rave about Capella – from its idyllic facade that combines colonial-style architecture with decidedly Asian touches to top-notch hospitality that steeps every resident in luxury – including round-the-clock personal assistants to ensure every need you might have is well taken care of during your stay. But chief to its merit is the triple-tiered cascading pool. Overlooking vast vistas of the South China Sea, the resort-style pool adopts an air of seclusion with its surrounding echo of greenery.

2. W Sentosa Cove

With underwater speakers and fully decked out cabanas equipped with mist fans and iPads, the shimmering pool at W Sentosa Cove would tempt just about anybody away from their hotel room.

The easily peckish will be glad to know they can order from the hotel’s exclusive WET Bar without having to leave the pool arena – the staff facilitates the orders, bringing them from the kitchen to you. As for the rest who want to live it up, simply glide across the water to the attached poolside bar for swig of gin.

The infinity pool at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering offers an expansive front-row view of the city amidst a smattering of jungle motifs.

The poolside cabanas are equally charming, utilising a whimsical birdcage design in line with the hotel-in-a-garden-theme – great for guests who seek a tranquil afternoon without having to leave the hotel.

4. Hard Rock Hotel

Combining the best of a tropical pool party and summer beach bonanza, the pool alone at Hard Rock Hotel is reason enough to spend the weekend there.

Soak up the sun on a man-made beach that segues into the massive freeform pool, chill by the poolside bar with your favourite cocktail while jamming to the pool’s curated playlist, or rally up your squad for a round of beach volleyball to get the adrenaline pumping.

5. Lloyd’s Inn

The dipping pool at Lloyd’s Inn might not win in size compared to its chain hotel counterparts, but what we love about this boutique hotel is the intimacy the pool area offers.

Congruent to the laidback resort vibes the rest of the hotel, the pool triumphs in offering a sense of seclusion as it tucks itself at the back of the locale, facing the quaint property while being surrounded by ample nature.

6. The Fullerton Hotel

Standing out as an iconic landmark in the civic district with its colonial exterior, The Fullerton Hotel has long been synonymous with luxury, opulent in both heritage and comfort.

While you acquaint yourself with the hotel’s in-room amenities, don’t forget to drop by the scenic infinity pool. Set against neoclassical Doric columns, the pool offers unadulterated, picturesque views of the Singapore River. After sunset, you hang out here to watch the Singapore skyline light up the dark.

Go off the grid for the weekend when you check into Siloso Beach Resort, a rustic, eco-friendly retreat hidden in the deeper end of Sentosa. Surrounded by lush foliage, the resort is big on tranquility and even boasts Singapore’s only natural spring water pool.

For the environmentally-conscious, be glad to know the resort was built with minimal destruction to the locale. In fact, 450 additional trees were planted when the resort was completed and the spring water pool that snakes 95 metres across the resort was built according to the natural terrain during construction.
