Favorite Instagrammable Hotel Pool

The amazing pool at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore.Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Hotel

We stayed at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel so we could swim in their iconic rooftop pool, located 57 floors high and it was worth the experience. Warning – the water is freezing (at least for this Miami girl), so I didn’t stay in long.

The only way to get in this pool is to stay at the hotel, otherwise, visitors can go up to the SkyPark or dine in nearby restaurants. Spago is adjacent to the pool and has good views, so if you don’t care about getting in the water, that’s a good way to go. BTW – You can get drinks and food when you are by the pool, but it comes from Spago and is expensive.

That's the pool on top, at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore.We followed the recommendations of other reviewers and went with the Club level rooms, which are spacious and on the higher floors. Go as high as you can. We opted for a bay view. The other side has balconies & views of the Gardens by the Bay. Our views were great and access to Club 55 is terrific. For breakfast, afternoon tea, and cocktails they offer an ample spread and a good pour for cocktails. Service is wonderful and the views are thrilling.

As for the hotel, its BIG and check-in is extremely slow, hard to believe they can’t handle it better than they do. The concierge staff is helpful though and we had wonderful input from a Concierge Supervisor; make a connection quickly.

I requested no-smoking well in advance, by email, and they would NOT guarantee a no-smoking room. We did get one, but they had to search for a very long time. If you are as adamant as we are about being in a no-smoking room, be forewarned.

It was all worth it for the pool.

About KFBuchsbaum

A lover of words, learning something new every day, exploring new places, and meeting people from different cultures is what feeds my spirit. One significant thing I learned from my years in market research is that time away from an experience dilutes the memories.  You lose the highs and lows and end up with middle-of-the-road impressions.  The reason I started to blog, was to capture experiences real-time, in the moment.  I hope my moments help you relive some of your own great adventures or maybe plan some new.
