Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool Singapore: Is It Worth The Hype?

Nothing Familiar Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool

Have you heard of the Marina Bay Sands infinity pool in Singapore? We’ve visited this city many times, and so often looked up at the iconic hotel. Finally on our last trip we took the plunge and splurged on a one night stay! The hotel itself is an amazing 5 star property, but we’d be lying if we said we didn’t book it to swim in the epic Singapore infinity pool. Join us on our adventure as we discover if the Marina Bay Sands pool  lives up to the hype!

About the Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool

Since its opening in 2010, Marina Bay Sands has widely been regarded as having one of the best swimming pools in the world. Not only is it currently the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool, but the actual design of the building is beyond your wildest imagination.

Cut into three different sections, this Marina Bay Sands infinity pool is spread across the top of three buildings in the shape of boat. From the highest floor of the building you’ll have a view of the entire city as you float atop this unreal resort.

As impressive as the 150 meter long Marina Bay Sands pool is, there’s much more on the roof to enjoy! If you walk back behind the other side of the pool you’ll see three jacuzzi’s sitting side by side.

The cool thing about these hot tubs are that they’re facing the opposite direction towards the port side of the city. That means you can lounge in the bubbly water, and watch as thousands of boats pull into Singapore!

Day vs. Night at the Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool

It’s easy to see that the Marina Bay Sands infinity pool is the showstopper, and main draw to this luxury hotel. Try and put swimming aside for a second… The view alone from up here is breathtaking!

Unfortunately, the only way to swim in the Marina Bay Sands pool is to be a hotel guest. Still, you can buy a ticket to the SkyPark observation deck or grab a drink at the bar as another option. 

Another fun part about the Marina Bay Sands infinity pool is experiencing it at different parts of the day. During the daytime is the most crowded to take a swim in the Singapore infinity pool.

The sun will be cranking down on you most days so make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen. At night it takes on a different theme, but it’s still just as fun.

Enjoy a swim and watch the skyline light up with colors. If possible, try and time your swim with the nightly Singapore light show! We love to watch this from the beautiful Merlion Park below. Yet, it’s such a unique perspective from the infinity pool in Singapore.

More Marina Bay Sands Pool Info

– You can only swim in the Marina Bay Sands infinity pool if you are a guest of the hotel. Every entry and exit is guarded and your personal hotel key is used to scan in and out of the pool area.

– Chairs are first come first serve. Also, don’t think about waking up early and grabbing a spot to leave your things. If a chair (even with personal items) is unattended for 45 minutes the stuff is taken to the towel collection so other guests can use the chairs.

– There are multiple pool cleanings per day. When you walk past each section of the infinity pool Singapore just look from the small board that says what the next time is. If you do sit down and they start cleaning you can always just hop in another section of the pool, or simply enjoy the view!

– Sunblock is only for sale and not free to use. We understand this is common at most resorts. However, at most 5 star hotels we have always had free sunblock. Bring your own or get ready to spend $20 for a travel size tube!

– When you scan out of the Marina Bay Sands pool head to the SkyPark Observation Deck. This is included in your hotel stay and another great view of the city.

    Hi, we stayed at Marina sands this week for 2nights. It was a wonderful experience, enjoyed every minute. Unfortunately, it rained both days. Although temperatures were in mid 80s but felt much cooler.
    Hotel was expensive than what we had in mind. A year ago it was $400/night including taxes ( taxes are 17%). We paid, including taxes $847/night.
    Our family of 6 had three rooms, total cost for just two night stay was $5100.00
    Once in a life time experience!!!

    I was disappointed by the room and the Club Lounge was like a large canteen so would rate it a 4* – the pool experience was the only higlight so do it but probably only worth staying 1 night, lots of other better hotels in Singapore

      The room and view we had were pretty incredible so we must have just got lucky! The pool was definitely the highlight though we agree.

    Yes my Husband and I had 1 night stayed worth paying $400 a night we checked in and spent most of the time in the infinity pool. Unbelievable. Will never forget the experience for the rest of our lifes. .The view at night with all the lights over Singapore breath taking . They have photographer who takes your photo in the pool great memories. Our bedroom was amazing big window over looking the light display at night.It was at Christmas time and in the hotel foyer a massive Christmas Tree all light up and covered in beautiful decorations . I hope to go back one day when the world is covid free .

      We couldn’t agree more! One of the few places in the world that’s worth this type of money, and the views are amazing. We can’t wait to go back to Singapore ( :
