1. Capella Singapore
If a person goes to Capella, they will be pampered with luxury. However, they will live in a world of #firstworldproblems. There will be too many things to enjoy and not enough time to do them all.
The hotel has three pools with a Bali resort vibe and an herbal steam bath. The pool area is adjacent to the spa, which has an amazing jacuzzi pool and experience showers. Some rooms have private plunge pools.
If you want to get away from the pool, there’s a library. But that’s not all. There’s also an outdoor terrace, where you can watch the sunset. And if you need a break from relaxing, there are complimentary refreshments and a bar.
2. The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore
The Fullerton Bay hotel is the crown jewel of the Marina Bay area. The hotel is located in the historic Clifford Pier and offers beautiful, dramatic arches. All of the rooms have a view, but the Bay View category offers a sublime panorama.
The Fullerton Bay Hotel has the most amazing views. I think I might have fallen in love with the bay. The hotel is one of a kind, and the pillows are incredible. Each pillow is a masterpiece, and comes with its own scent. I’d say my favorite scent was jasmine.
The hotel is located minutes from major attractions like the Merlion and the Esplanade. Quality time to relax by the pool and soak in the nightscape is also recommended.

At night, use the infinity pool to cool off. Then head downstairs to the 1864 Bar, which has 22 barrel-aged cocktails. If you’d rather be alone and work out, your room features an exercise mat and foam rollers. Even better, you can soak in a bathtub that comes with a book-and-wine-glass tray. Awesome.

An old-world hotel in the middle of a forest… It’s easy to fall in love with. The rooms are decorated with antiques and upcycled furniture, adding a romantic touch. But more than that, the hotel has old-world charm. But what makes this hotel so wonderful is the hospitality.
When you arrive at the Sarang, you will be greeted by a beautiful walkway made of wood and leading to the villa. If you are staying in a Sarang or Luxe Sarang room, your private jacuzzi will be prepared for you.

If you want to take the best pool selfie in the whole world, head to Marina Bay Sands (MBS). Located 57 stories high, it is the highest rooftop pool in the world and larger than three Olympic-size pools.
Another pretty picture of a swimming pool. Infinity pools are popular for their vanishing edge, which makes you feel like you’re suspended in space. The thing about this 2,500-room hotel is that it’s so big that there will be lots of people and the pool will be packed. You might have to crop the photo to focus on one person or a couple of people.

Exposed walls, leather couches, and a cavernous lobby are all part of the design. The hotel’s centerpiece is a light sculpture made up of wheels and pulleys.
