You are more than welcome to enter the hotel's infinity pool, where you can cool off and marvel at the lush greens of the Villamor golf course and the breathtaking city skyline. Sometimes the simplest details make all the difference, and the glass barricade pretty much did the trick for us. Welcome to the good life, sir!

RAVE of Pasig
F. Legaspi Avenue, Barangay Maybunga, Pasig City
Once known as Pasig's Rainforest Park, the newly rebranded RAVE considers their pool as one of their showcase attractions. A resort pool accompanied by two spiraling water slides, pavilions, and statues of cartoon characters, this place looks like it was made for toddlers and their respective yayas. But don't let that stop you from getting your fix of summer cool down. It still looks super fun!
The Bellevue Manila
North Bridgeway, Filinvest City, Alabang

"This dream comes to life at the Bellevue Manila's poolside. Serving light snacks, fresh drinks, and scrumptious desserts all day, the place is perfect for days when one just needs to laze around." Right on!
