Sofitel SO Singapore
Combining hints of both The Wolf of Wall Street and The Great Gatsby, there’s nothing quite like this gold-tiled rooftop pool elsewhere in the Central Business District, let alone the island! Watch out for some of the city’s hottest parties, held every week at the pool bar, HI-SO, as they play host to many of Singapore’s social elite. Ladies, head over every Wednesday evening from 6pm to 9pm for their Ladies Night special, where you’ll be spoiled with fl utes of Ruinart champagne. Whether you’re there to sip on a drink or swim, there’s no better place for a cheeky night of mid-week revelry.

What could serve as a better reminder that you are on a tropical island than uninterrupted views of the South China Sea? This cascading three-tiered swimming pool set amidst the lush greenery of the hotel grounds reminds us a litle of Ubud’s vast rice paddy fi elds. You’re guaranteed to feel worlds away from Singapore’s busy inner city, making it the perfect place to unwind after an eventful day of shopping and dining. Plus, we reckon the roving peacocks give it an extra special touch… more than ideal for any romantic getaway. For a little extra privacy, guests can opt to check into one the hotel’s villas or manors, each boasting a private pool.
