The pool at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund is a light-filled oasis — the perfect place to unwind after a long day spent in meetings or out sightseeing. Thanks to two walls of windows, you can look out onto the surrounding cityscape and watch the sunset as you swim up and down the pool. At night, the lights in the water change color (kids in particular will appreciate this). In addition to the pool, there’s also a small Jacuzzi where you can warm up or relax after swimming laps. Surrounding the pool are medium-size wooden, cushion-topped chaise lounge chairs and couches that can accommodate groups. Big fluffy towels and sandals with a no-slip sole are provided for all pool guests, and if you’re staying at the hotel you can come downstairs in your robe. There’s complimentary fruit and bottled water at the pool, and those looking for something more substantial can order off the pool’s snack menu or from the Five-Star hotel’s standard room service menu.
