Floating in the sky high above the streets of Singapore is a swimming pool with the best view of the city. On this episode, we bring you the world’s highest swimming pool.
Located at Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore is an infinity pool on the 57th story. Opened in 2010 on June 23rd and 24th as a two-day celebration, this pool is park of the Skypark which sits 650 feet or 198 meters above ground. At a cost of 8 billion dollars, this hotel is the most expensive stand-alone integrated resort property ever constructed. It is also one of the top 40 largest hotels in the world.
The hotel has 55 floors with 2561 rooms, an enormous convention center that can accommodate 45,000 people, the world’s largest atrium casino with 600 card tables and 2500 slot machines, crystal pavilions, art science exhibits, 2 theatres, museums, and a mall.
The pool sits atop the world’s largest cantilevered platform which overhangs the north tower by 220 feet or 67 meters. The entire 3-acre rooftop park has a capacity of 3900 people complete with gardens and jogging path.
The skypark was constructed off-site in 14 prefabricated steel sections then assembled on top of the tower. There are four movement joints beneath the main pools which allow for natural movement of the towers up to 20 inches or half a meter. Custom installed jack legs were installed to make fine tune adjustments as the building settles into the ground and prevents the pool from breaking.
Constructing the pool required 422,000 pounds or 191,000 kg of stainless steel which allows it to hold 376,000 US gallons or 1,425 cubic meters of water. Around the pool is a legion of lounge chairs and palm trees, there are also lounge chairs in the water. While only available to the hotel customers, this lush green Skypark and rooftop pool has the best views of Singapore. At night time one can view Marina Bay’s sustainable light festival light show from the comfort of the pool or lounge chair. The light show lights up the sky and the water below as bubble machines create a canvas for the projectors to cast their images on. This 15-minute show is a spectacle the draws in many every night it's on.
