We have all seen photos of the iconic rooftop pool of Marina Bay Sands with the stunning views over the Singapore skyline, but what about all the other hotels with epic rooftop swimming pools? Due to its never ending summer and heat Singapore is well equipped when it comes to swimming pools, if they’re located on rooftops with awesome views of the Singapore skyline, even better! Since like myself not everyone can afford a night at Marina Bay Sands, I wanted to put together a list to all the best hotels in Singapore with rooftop swimming pools for every budget, so that you can select the one that suits you best.
Best rooftop pool hotels in Singapore
“Without a doubt, the best hotel in Singapore with a rooftop pool is that of the Marina Bay Sands. Let’s be honest the pool is iconic, with good reason. On the 57th floor, this pool overlooks the city of Singapore in the Marina Bay area and its luxurious feel certainly makes you feel like royalty. I love it that much I have been lucky enough to visit three times, to experience the pool and the also the incredible views you receive from every room. Each time I have stayed I have chosen a city view, however, the view from the other side of the hotel includes the harbour and Gardens by The Bay. Realistically you can’t get a bad room or view from this hotel. Also situated within the Marina Bay complex are the Shoppes, Casino, Theatre, countless restaurants and a fantastic food court filled with international cuisine. So, if the pool isn’t your cup of tea, there is still plenty on offer at The Marina Bay Sands.”

Since not everyone can afford to stay at Marina Bay Sands I figured it was best to include some other hotels in Singapore with stunning rooftop pools and views. With an equally awesome view but for a more affordable rate, you will find Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong has a beautiful pool. Hotel Indigo is slightly further out from the main Marina Bay Area, but it’s still located very central and is well connected to the rest of Singapore. While the view isn’t over the iconic skyscrapers and Singapore skyline, in this area the surrounding houses are much lower than the pool level, meaning you can see for miles around you.
“Naumi Hotel in Singapore is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World and is a boutique hotel with a beautiful rooftop pool with great views over the Singapore CBD. Naumi Hotel is located in the colonial district of Singapore and is a short drive to the business area, making it a great alternative for those who want to be central but still have a lot of local options nearby.
The hotel is quite quirky and has lots of details that make for a fun and unique stay, from the hangover breakfast cures to the fancy messages left throughout the hotel. The rooms have a nice hidden minibar and cool bathrooms and th suites are inspired by Andy Warhol. But the show-stopper is the rooftop pool, a wonderful place to see the sunset on one of the stylish swing chairs.”

“Hotel Jen Orchardgateway is located right in the busy heart of Singapore. Do you want to go for an extensive shopping tour in the most Western metropolis of the East? No problem! It’s just a short walk to Orchard Road – the main shopping street. The hotel is easily reachable by public transport or your private car. It’s also the perfect location to explore the other sights of the city. The highlight is the rooftop pool, which is a calm oasis, overlooking Singapore with a perfect view on the most famous building: The Marina Bay Sands. Relax and enjoy the sunset with a refreshing cocktail.”

“The Fullerton Hotel is one of the best-loved hotels in Singapore. The stunning colonial building was completed in 1928, and was named after Robert Fullerton, the first Governor of the Straits Settlements. Its magnificent lobby and atrium lead the way to 400 luxurious rooms and suites, and the hotel is renowned for its gorgeous Town restaurant, in particular for its decadent free-flow champagne Sunday brunch.
But the real highlight of this colonial Singapore hotel is its stunning rooftop swimming pool. Lined by Doric columns, the swimming pool peers over the Singapore River to the surrounding neo-classical buildings of the Colonial District, making for a truly unique Singapore backdrop.”

“There are a number of fabulous hotels in Singapore, on a recent visit we stayed at the Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre. Located just behind the main precinct of Orchard Rd, its a short walk to MRT to get you anywhere in Singapore. Singapore is hot and humid all year round, making your hotel pool an important part in your decision making for which hotel you will stay at.
The Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre has a roof top pool, it is fully enclosed with 4 walls and without a roof so no such view like the Marina Bay Sands. It does however have a separate kids splash pool for those travelling with young kids and a separate hot tub/spa. I love that there is no roof allowing the sunshine to get in for those utilising the day beds placed around the pool.”

“Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road, Singapore has a nice rooftop pool with city skyline and harbour views including the Singapore Flyer. The hotel has a great location across the street from the Kampong Glam neighborhood and close to Arab Street, Haji Lane and many restaurants. It is also a short walking distance to shopping at Bugis Junction and two MRT stations. In addition to the outdoor swimming pool, other hotel amenities include a 24-hour fitness centre and free wi-fi. All the rooms are suites so you can enjoy hotel service with all the amenities you would have at home including a fully equipped kitchen as well as a washer and dryer.”
