Now that we’re approaching the end of the year, perhaps it’s time to start planning a relaxing staycation for your family or even use your leave days to reconnect with your other half.

If you’re not planning on going on vacation, perhaps these 10 hotels in Singapore with amazing pools could be perfect for you:

 

1. W Singapore — Sentosa Cove

At about 1,338 square metres, W Singapore — Sentosa Cove’s WET Pool is one of the largest resort outdoor pool areas in Singapore.

The hotel occasionally has fun pool parties and the best part is, there are underwater speakers so you never miss a beat (literally!) even in the pool.

We reckon the most unique part about the pool too is that there’s a bar as well. Get a drink at the WET Bar without even having to leave the pool!

If you’re looking for some privacy, the hotel also has rooms with private plunge pools

With a man-made white beach, palm trees and a separate area just for kids, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore’s pool is the best for families.

There’s also a beach volleyball court nearby and poolside cabanas if you’re planning to do some fun beach activities.

Tucked away in a quieter part of Clarke Quay, a stay at the Park Regis is actually really quiet and tranquil. However, don’t be fooled by its location, the hotel is accessible and there are plenty of attractions nearby.

Its 25 metre lap pool has a cascading waterfall feature and semi-submerged sun loungers for you to sunbathe in. We also like how the pool isn’t always crowded so you’ve got loads of space to yourself. The pool also faces a main road for you to people watch and relax.

Their rooftop infinity pool faces the South China Sea and gives you a stunning view of the Central Business District. There are partially submerged beds for sunbathing and relaxing too.

Its sheer size and the fact that it’s on Sentosa Island, makes this entire hotel so romantic.

At 33 metres long, this sprawling pool has space for everyone and because it’s so secluded, you’ll probably have a lot of alone time.

This rooftop pool gives you an unbeatable view of the Marina Bay Area. It looks especially beautiful at night so make it a point to come back later in the evening to get some gorgeous photos for Instagram.

This eco-friendly hotel has beautiful cabanas where you can relax and take a break from swimming in its infinity pool.

The pool also offers a lovely view of the Chinatown area and is near popular tourists spots like Clarke Quay and Chinatown so there’s plenty to see and do while on your staycation.

It might not be the biggest but the cascading pools at the Capella are surrounded by such lush greenery, it’s hard not to relax and feel a certain level of tranquility while you’re there.

You might even spot some wild peacocks roaming the area!

It might be a little far but this hotel is probably one of the best ones for privacy and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. The pool offers you a view of Changi Beach and you’ll most likely forget that you’re still in Singapore when you’re there.

Our list wouldn’t be complete without including Marina Bay Sands.

With such beautiful views of Singapore, a bar close by and partially submerged sun beds, the pool provides an incredible space to relax and chill.
