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.
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.

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.
