The temperature regularly hovers close to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Bangkok, which makes the de rigueur hotel swimming pool more than a mere amenity. It becomes an absolute necessity. That said, the best of Bangkok’s hotel swimming pool options go above and beyond the basics of cooling off over-heated guests.
The best of those at Bangkok hotels have superlative views. They’re architecturally stunning. They’re private. They offer spread-out room for swimmers and comfort for sun-worshipers. And, they offer delectable beverages and edibles for both groups. Five to keep firmly in mind, should you be planning a stay in Bangkok are, the pool at the Siam, Bangkok, the pool at the St. Regis, Bangkok, the pool at the Sukhothai, the pool at The Peninsula, Bangkok and the pool at 137 Pillars, Bangkok.
“With temperatures constantly hovering above 30 degrees Celsius, a good swim, preferably complemented by grand views and attentive service, is mandatory in Bangkok.”
Apart from the pools mentioned in the article above, I think an honourable mention should go to the tropical paradise that is the pool at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok, which was featured in the 2008 Nicolas cage movie Bangkok Dangerous.
