Mandarin Oriental, Singapore has opened its new swimming pool and deck area following a redesign by renowned hospitality interior design firm Buz Design and St Legere Design International of Hong Kong. Located on the 5th floor of the hotel, the area has been transformed to offer guests a more comfortable respite from the city.

Lining the upper deck of the swimming pool are five well-appointed, Oriental-inspired private cabanas. Each one is equipped with controlled dimmer lighting, a ceiling fan, iPod dock, Wi-Fi connectivity and an on-call button for food and beverage service.
