As the national capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur attracts millions of visitors every year. One of them is you. Or perhaps you’re a first-timer. Regardless, there’s no doubt that this city is one of the must-visit places in Southeast Asia. You’ll be pampered by culinary and cultural activities in this city. And there’s no better way to take a break from all that than to have a relaxing dip in a rooftop swimming pool. That’s why we recommend you pick one of these best hotels with rooftop pool in Kuala Lumpur as your accommodation.
Your best rooftop pool experience should include a great view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. It’s defined by the world-renowned Petronas Towers. This twin-tower is among the world’s tallest skyscrapers. Definitely not a sight to miss! But that’s only the tip of the iceberg of what Kuala Lumpur has to offer. So, let’s start planning your itinerary with browsing through the best hotels in Kuala Lumpur with rooftop pool below!
Red by Sirocco
First of all, there are so many great hotels with rooftop pool in Kuala Lumpur. These 11 hotels were chosen not just because of their amazing rooftop pools. We looked into the room amenities, reviews from previous guests, and uniqueness.
Red by Sirocco ticks the last box. From the moment you see the hotel’s building, you’ll be amazed by the unique design. Strange paintings and artworks decorate the interiors. But wait until you get to the bedroom. The funky, modern, and edgy design makes it so interesting yet still comfortable.
Soak in the city skyline from the rooftop pool. If you think what you see in the image above is amazing, wait until you see the night view! Swim away with city lights of Kuala Lumpur blurring underneath you.
Sunway Putra Hotel, Kuala Lumpur
Spend the nights in a modern room or suite where you can find complimentary Chinese tea. Make your own with a tea/coffee maker and relax on the sofa. But don’t let the comfort keeps you inside, because excitement awaits nearby. Take the free shuttle to KLCC or Bukit Bintang. You will find plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment options in that area.
When you return, come to the 25-meter long rooftop pool where you can see the Petronas Twin Towers from afar. Such a view worth sharing on social media! Besides, previous guests love the state-of-the-art fitness center. It’s complimentary for all guests at the Sunway Putra Hotel!

So, you can browse for your next luxury brand items anytime you want. And other options are also available less than a mile (1.6 km) away, at Berjaya Times Square.
After a long day of a shopping spree, enjoy a relaxing afternoon poolside. Or do a couple of laps to stay fit. We recommend dining at Tangerine afterward. This on-site restaurant is located on the Sky Deck, 51 floors above the street below. Imagine the view!
