Singapore Hotels with Family-friendly Pools
Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa
Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa has one of the largest free-form pools in Singapore and gentle waters are found at these pools! Don’t let sensitive skin take away your fun as your splash around with family and friends. A water management system is installed to keep the water in the pools in its natural state, where only the minimum statutory amount of chlorine is added, as opposed to the amount used in a commercial pool. Less chemicals, more comfort, same cleanliness! Add on a children’s pool, splash pad with fountains and water slides sheltered under a canopy and it turns into fun playground for families to have a splashing good time in the water.

Village Hotel Changi
We all know about the infinity pool located at the rooftop of Marina Bay Sands, but the one at Village Hotel Changi is well worth mentioning too. Although smaller in size, it has a pleasant view overlooking the Johor Straits. This is also a great spot to catch an unobstructed view of the sunrise or sunset. The second pool that is popular among kids is The Creek Pool. The transparent wall design makes swimming a whole lot more fun because of the unique view that you can see and capture without having to get you or the camera wet. Kids will have lots of fun pretending to be “fish in a large fish tank” too. Rent a few marine floats to complete the underwater experience!
