Escape the bustling, busy city from incredible heights at one of the many rooftop pools located throughout Bangkok. Whether you need a breather from the polluted sidewalks of Sukhumvit or need a refreshing break from Thailand’s brutal heat, rooftop pools are here to offer you an oasis away from the city. There are a number of hotels with pools that have these panoramic views, some with more impressive views than those at Bangkok’s most famous rooftop bars. So we think it’s time to take a look at the five best rooftop pools in Bangkok.

Sivatel Bangkok


Sivatel Bangkok

In the heart of the city, you’ll find Sivatel Bangkok. This hotel homes 75 boutique-style suites with modern amenities. Its prime location offers guests easy access to some of the most luxurious shopping in Bangkok. It’s not the shopping that intrigues us, however: it’s Sivatel Bangkok’s spectacular pool. While Bangkok has its fair share of rooftop bars and restaurants, the Sivatel Bangkok rooftop pool offers its guests some of the best views of the City of Angels. This infinity pool will have you feeling like you’re actually swimming amongst the skyscrapers. The hotel offers its guests access to their premier health club and spa. There’s also a cafe and restaurant, cooking up some delicious meals to keep you full while lounging poolside. To get here, take the BTS Skytrain to Phloen Chit.

Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn Bangkok offers guests a complete, luxury experience: from the infinity pool to the class restaurant, it does not get much better than this. The infinity pool is located on the 14th floor of the hotel, with panoramic views of the city. Rooms start at ฿2,999 (about $85). From the hotel, you’ll have direct access to the BTS Skytrain stop Surasak. On the fifth floor of the hotel is the Glass House, the hotel’s on-site dining area. You can chow down here all day, with a breakfast buffet being served up in the morning, an international lunch buffet and an a la carte menu to choose from. It does cuisines from all over the world, such as Thai, Japanese, and Chinese favorites.

Maitria Hotel Sukhumvit 18

Hotel, Suite Hotel, Chain Hotel, Love Hotel

The Maitria Hotel Sukhumvit 18 has a small but stunning rooftop pool. Lounge in one of the comfortable reclining sun beds as some of Bangkok’s tallest skyscrapers rise high above you. The green foliage surrounding the pool in addition to the concrete jungle just outside its vicinity is an awe-inspiring sight. This hotel is located in the city’s best shopping and dining hot spots. There are 129 guest rooms to choose from, all with modern facilities that’ll make sure you have a comfortable stay while traveling in Bangkok. In addition to the rooftop pool, the Maitria Hotel Sukhumvit 18 has a restaurant and bar, fitness center, and putting green area.

Located in central Bangkok is SO Sofitel Bangkok, one of the most happening hotels in the city. The urban hotel overlooks the famous Lumpini Park. It gives its visitors easy access to many of the most popular attractions found in Bangkok. The hotel combines both French décor and Thai hospitality to its services. There are 238 rooms, each one with a distinguished theme of water, earth, wood, or metal. The rooms are all graced with floor to ceiling windows that offer guests panoramic views of Lumpini Park, where you can find monitor lizards sunbathing throughout. The hotel also has an executive lounge, a rooftop bar and restaurant to accommodate its stunning pool, a market-style restaurant, four meeting rooms, a ballroom…and more!

Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok

The Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok has it all: from a 24-hour fitness center to an executive lounge and even sightseeing tours available for booking. One thing’s for certain; you won’t find a shortage of things to do at this spectacular hotel. While all of these amenities are certainly an added bonus, this hotel makes our list because of its spectacular view from its rooftop pool, Lapse. Yep, the pool has a name. See the city like never before while soaking in the rays of Bangkok’s sun. The Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok is just a five-minute walk from the BTS Skytrain station Phrom Phong. It’s at this station where you’ll find some of the best shopping malls in Bangkok, including Emporium.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
