You will feel like the master of your domain in The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong’s heated indoor infinity pool, whose special amenities include staggering views of the surrounding cityscape. In addition, the 53rd-floor pool area has a Jacuzzi, plenty of chairs and loungers, and a lifeguard. Towels, robes and slippers are provided, as are rubber sandals with grip soles, so there’s no danger of slipping on the sometimes-wet deck. The pool is just 4.7 feet deep, so it’s great for kids staying at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. Those feeling peckish can order room service to the pool and enjoy dishes like The Ritz-Carlton Club (chicken, bacon, a fried egg, lettuce and tomato) or a house green salad (sliced ham, Gruyère cheese and a poached egg). There are also Asian options (fried rice, noodles, crab roe with broccoli) and kid-friendly dishes from the Italian restaurant Scena.
