If you’re already forking it out for a room, why not go for broke and get a place with an infinity pool? You may even enjoy the swim.

In Kuala Lumpur, you can live the high life—literally. These infinity pools will have you looking out over the horizon of this metropolitan’s skyline from a couple of hundred feet (at least 60 meters) above sea level. And for a lifestyle so close to heaven, cocktails and lounge beds are naturally part of the deal.

Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

Beautiful infinity pool

This stylish, modern abode could be yours for under RM260 ($64 USD) a night. With a neon-lit infinity pool overlooking central Kuala Lumpur, a restaurant and bar-lounge that lights up like a birthday cake every evening, and a fully-equipped fitness center—you could enjoy it so much you might forget to leave the hotel.

GTower Hotel

Stylish infinity pool

Luxury doesn’t come cheap, but this hotel is too good to miss. With two outdoor pools, two restaurants, and a well-equipped gym, you’ll be hard-pressed to find another deal within four walking minutes of the Ampang Park. This hotel is located within the Golden Triangle.

Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur

The Mandarin is known for its class, its style and—in Kuala Lumpur—its outdoor infinity pool. Lush verdure, tropical cocktails, and canopied lounge cushions by the pool are part of everyday life at this 632-room establishment. The hotel also features a full-service spa, two tennis courts, and in-room childcare. Bring your kids, your beau, and your swimsuit.

The Face Suites

With 200 serviced apartments, two restaurants, and two outdoor pools, why would you want to leave the hotel at all? Atop the infinity pool, you can watch as central Kuala Lumpur works, lunches, and rushes for the monorail to go home at 5 p.m. And after sunset, you can splash around in the pool as the Twin Towers glitter like diamonds against the night sky.

Capri by Fraser Kuala Lumpur

The only way you can beat an infinity pool with a great view is an “individual” infinity pool with a great view. At the Capri by Frazer, you can pick one of the mini infinity pools and enjoy a little more privacy as you sip a cocktail and drink while taking in the view of this bustling city.

D’Majestic Place by Swiss-Garden

Infinity pool with a view

Exercise, swim, and lounge on the rooftop at this 188-guestroom hotel. The boisterous Petaling Street is only half an hour’s walk away, but you won’t hear it from here. The ambience is peaceful, the view is stunning, and the breakfast is worth the surcharge.

WP Hotel

Night view from the infinity pool

This small hotel may not be as flamboyant as its neighbors, but its central location, pretty rooms, and infinity pool will match anything its rivals can offer—for a third of the price. Enjoy martinis and sangrias at the pool bar, or walk 30 minutes to the Bintang Walk for food, drinks, and retail shops.

Impiana KLCC Hotel

Infinity pool with an amazing night view of KLCC

If you want the best infinity-pool view of the Twin Towers, this is the hotel for you. It’s so close to the towers you’ll feel like you could touch them (if only the infinity pool stretched a bit further into infinity); in fact, on foot, you could if you’re willing to walk ten minutes. Other nearby attractions include the KL Tower, the Jamek Mosque, and Merdeka Square.

Verdant Hill Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Infinity pool overlooking the city

Despite its name, there’s not much verdant space here unless you count the bedspread. But the infinity pool is certainly something to talk about, as it overlooks central Kuala Lumpur in Bukit Bintang and is decent-sized enough for you to swim more than a few laps. The rooms are stylish, the restaurant is artsy, and there’s a banquet hall, in case you want to book your wedding here.

Somerset Ampang Kuala Lumpur

If you prefer the vacation style offered by serviced apartments, this establishment provides family-size serviced units replete with a lounge and kitchenette. The infinity pool has a chic minimalist vibe, supplemented by a jacuzzi and children’s pool. If you require childcare, it’s also available for a small fee.
