Lounge around and go for a dip in this rooftop infinity pool at the newly rebranded Hotel Telegraph located in the CBD. If the neo-classical building looks familiar, that’s because it was formerly home to So/ Singapore. 

The 1972 Rooftop Bar is right by the poolside where you can order up a cocktail. Unwind and enjoy the city skyline, which is especially pretty at night, while sipping on a Manhattan ($24) or the foolproof Pisco Sour ($24)

Shangri-La Singapore will be a hit with the kids, with 6 unique play pools for children of all ages. You’ll find them running to Splash Zone, an outdoor water play facility decked with aquatic amenities and 6 water play areas such as slides, lazy rivers, and even a pirate ship.

There’s also a shallow pool with water cannons and jets shooting up from the ground – for those who aren’t so confident in their swimming abilities just yet.

There are also lounge chairs that are just close enough to the edge of the pool if you don’t want to get wet. Dip your toes and admire the views.

Get your party on with drinks from the bar or relax and soak in the Singapore sun all while being at Orchard. Don’t forget to upload that cute photo of you posing on a floatie against the geometric-styled pool tiles, your friends might just be fooled and think you’re in Bali or Phuket.

Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore brings the Thai-resort vibes to our local shores with 3 different pools. The 1.2m-deep Lap Pool has enough room for you to swim to your heart’s content, and even has a drying area to sit and relax after a rigorous workout. After taking laps in the pool, make a dive for the jacuzzi jet streams to relieve any sore muscles.

At the Relaxation Pool, you really can daydream that you’re having a vacay – especially with the resort atmosphere. There are even chairs to sink into while still being able to dip your toes in the water.

The kiddos aren’t left out, either. The Kids Pool is fairly large with chairs surrounding it, so parents can look out for the little ones while they play. That said, the pool is only 0.5m deep so beginners are free to swim to their heart’s content.

They even have a lazy river for you to lepak in as you slowly meander down its winding bends – yes, reminiscent of the Shiok River at Wild Wild Wet. Lined with foliage, it almost feels like you’re actually in a jungle. The rain curtains definitely complete the package and help you cool off if you’ve spent an entire day in the sun.
