Well-known for its feathered residents, Capella Singapore is one of the few pet-friendly hotels in Singapore. The resort-like hotel on Sentosa has not 1, but 3 cascading pools designed with Bali’s rice paddy fields as inspiration. And the pretty peacocks are a common sight, making the poolside photos here even more IG-worthy.

Open daily from as early as 7am till the golden hour, pool services include float rentals in the shapes of cute unicorns or water beds that can fit a couple. Make your way to one of the pools early in the day as these floats are available to use in the pools only from 11.30am-1.30pm.

If you want to find out how crowded the pools are before you pack your swimming bag and leave the comfort of your hotel room simply call the pool attendants using the 5318 phone extension for live updates.
