The Sky Park Hotel in Singapore…

Sep 1, 2010 by

If you fancy a dip in this pool, you’ll need a head for heights – it’s 55 stories up.   But swimming to the edge won’t be quite as risky as it looks. While the water in the infinity pool seems to end in a sheer drop, it actually spills into a catchment area where it is pumped back into the main pool. Infinity pools give the effect that the water extends to the horizon. 
At three times the length of an Olympic pool and 650ft up, it is the largest outdoor pool in the world at that height. It features  the impressive boat-shaped ‘Sky Park’ perched atop the three towers that make up the world’s most expensive hotel, the £4billion Marina Bay Sands development in Singapore .

To infinity…and beyond! The pool stretches 150 meters, three times the length of an Olympic swimming pool!

The infinity pool on the roof is in the ‘SkyPark’ which spans the three towers of the hotel. The platform itself is longer than the Eiffel tower laid down and is one of the largest of its kind in the world. The hotel, which has 2,560 rooms costing from £350 a night, was officially opened  with a concert by Diana Ross.
