Set amidst lush greenery, the 5th floor of the hotel-in-a-garden is home to a dedicated wellness space which incorporates fitness and recreational facilities including an outdoor infinity pool, jacuzzi and a 300-metre garden walk. Take a relaxing dip in the outdoor infinity pool while taking in spectacular views of our lush landscaping and Singapore city skyline.
The colourful birdcage-inspired cabanas along the perimeter of the pool also provide a comfortable chill-out space for guests to lounge and indulge with a glass of wine in hand. After doing laps at the pool, treat yourself to a selection of local specialties and western favourites such as Nasi Goreng and hand-pulled pizzas available from the poolside menu.
Whether it is doing laps to start your day or taking a dip to unwind after a busy day, the rooftop swimming pool at Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road is an invigorating space, offering panoramic views of Singapore's skyline. Next to the pool, you’ll find comforting sunbathing lounges which will give you a perfect golden tan in the day and some spectacular sunset harbour views when night falls. The pool is opened from 6.30am to 11pm everyday so you and your family members can enjoy a splashing great time during your weekend staycation.
Located at Sentosa Island, a sanctuary from downtown Singapore, Amara Sanctuary Resort is perfect for those who want a peaceful and relaxing staycation. Catering to every guests’ needs, this is the only hotel in this list with four different pools – the Sky pool, Dream pool, Children Pool, and Larkhill Terrace Pool.
One can never get enough of infinity pools and what we love about Amara Sanctuary Resort’s Dream pool is how it’s complemented with a beautiful waterfall and natural rainforest garden, completing the whole out of the world experience!
The second infinity pool - the Larkhill Terrace Pool comes with an impeccable pool view, exclusively for guests of Larkhill Terrace Suites only, a luxury colonial bungalow suitable for couples looking for an intimate getaway. Next to the Dream pool, you’ll also find the Children pool equipped with water slides and everyone’s pool favourite – the unicorn float. Kids will have a blast loading their water guns up and even if you’re not a kid, it’s bound to unleash the inner child in you!
If these four pools still can’t satisfy your pool-craving, treat yourself to the luxury of a private pool in a one-bed or two-bed villa in this lush sanctuary.
Gym buffs rejoice! PARKROYAL on Beach Road’s pool is strategically located on the Wellness Floor of the hotel which consists of a half sized Olympic outdoor swimming pool, a gymnasium, a fitness studio and an award-winning spa – St. Gregory. Beside the pool, is a café and bar which serves simple and low-carb recipes using the freshest ingredients and organic condiments whenever possible.
From the pool, you can enjoy a spectacular view of Singapore’s downtown skyline which also makes the perfect photo spot. Catch the best sunset view while enjoying the cool evening breeze. There’s never a better place to appreciate the night view when the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay area is lit up.
