Marina Bay Sands Infinity Swimming Pool

I think anyone who has seen the Marina Bay Sands Swimming Pool will surely agree that it must be one of the most beautiful looking hotel pools in the world! It’s quite long, which is really good for serious swimmers, although I think most people will be here just to gawk at the scenery. Many other older hotels have really tiny and unshapely pools, which is a pity. I think there is a trend nowadays for hotels to make a statement for themselves via the design of their pools.

Then there’s the red deckchairs, which make for good contrast in photos. This must be like one of the best places to sun tan, cuz there’s no other tall building to block the sun’s rays. Just don’t book a stay here on one of Singapore’s public holidays, or you’ll be wading in a sea of people.

The use of the swimming pool facility is only available for hotel guests from 6am – 10pm, although visitors are obviously able to view a portion of it. Visitors can only access the SkyPark from 10am onwards, so shy swimmers should try to make use of the magic hours between 6am – 10am to have their swim if they don’t want their every move scrutinised. And I can tell you, there will be photographs galore. There is no way anyone with a camera or iPhone would leave without snapping some pictures of the pool.

These photos were taken at 3pm on a Friday afternoon.

Did you know the infinity swimming pool is 150-meters long and is the world’s largest outdoor pool at that height?

I like how they’ve thought of everything by putting out the flat beds for people to sun tan in.

I personally find that it’s usually to bright to read out in the open like this even though it’s such a relaxing idea to do so.

This photo makes me feel like the city is just a step away.

Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Photos

The Partner was privileged to be able to get free tickets to visit the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark just after it opened on Thursday. It is called a SkyPark, but at this point in time, the park portion of the SkyPark (which supposedly has landscaped gardens home to 250 trees and 650 plants) and the restaurants are not open. The restaurants are slated to open only in the 3rd quarter of 2010.

Still, it was worth the visit for the bragging rights and the 360 degree totally unblocked views of Singapore. It is probably one of the very few places in Singapore where you can get a 360 degree view, unless you have regular access to some tall building’s roof top. Even views from the flyer or the tall office buildings will be blocked at certain angles.

There is one way to avoid paying for the $20 ticket, and that is to be a guest at the Marina Bay Sands hotel. Then you can gain access to the SkyPark when you take a dip at the infamous 150m infinity swimming pool, the world’s largest outdoor pool at that height. I can’t imagine swimming in that pool, it looks so scary!

The best time to visit the SkyPark is undoubtedly in the evening. Then you can catch both the daylight as well as night time views of the Singapore skyline, and maybe even the sunset. Too bad they only open at 10am, or it would be a nice place to catch the sunrise as well.

SkyPark Infinity Pool

The infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands Singapore. This must be a dream come true for lap swimmers! 150 metres! That’s longer than an Olympic-sized pool!

SkyPark Infinity Pool

The $20 ticket allows you to perv at the swimmers. It must be really romantic to take a dip with your beloved so high up. This must be one of the few hotel pools in the world with such an amazing view.

Yes that black stretch is the pool!
