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 little of Ubud’s vast rice paddy fields. 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.
