So what's the best pool party in Bangkok ?
That get us back to the question, what's a good pool party ?
If you ask me, it should have :
- A cool venue, with a great view of the city
- A beautiful crowd, including those hot bikini babes from Instagram
- A good vibe, good people, a few shows to get the party going...
- A good lineup, no matter what style of music as long as they get people going
- Good drink packages, because we're not going to go through this sober !
Beats by the Pool at W Bangkok
Even though the W Pool Party have been around for a while, it use to be only once a year during Songkran festival.
But since September 2018 they started doing monthly pool parties again, and they've been killing it.
For their pool party, W teamed up with Bangkok Invaders, probably the most famous Hip Hop Dj crew in Thailand that have some of the hottest parties in Bangkok.
Needless to say, it didn't take long to become one of the best pool party in Bangkok and right now, my favorite one.
Why ? Because it checks all the boxes I've listed above :
- Cool venue
- Best Hip Hop Djs in Bangkok
- Awesome vibe
- Packed with hot people
- Both "Cheap" bottles and high end packages
W Pool Party is usually every first Saturday of the month.
Check their facebook or instagram accounts to have more info about the next event pool party.
Westin Pool Party at Westin Grande Sukhumvit
Right now, Westin Pool Party and W Pool Party are the two pool parties that are always packed.
Westin Pool Party became bigger and bigger over the years and it's now without a doubt one of the best pool party in Bangkok.
It's also one of the few pool party that go all year long and no matter when you go, it's always full.
Regarding the music, like at W there's only one stage. DJs change often but they usually cover everything from EDM to Electro and Deep House.
The only downside is the pool area that is a bit smaller than other pool parties. So get there super early or book a table if you're going with a group.
My friend Nicole used to work there as part of the marketing team, check her blog to read what she has to say about the event.
Westin Pool Party is usually every third Saturday of the month.

So Pool Party at Sofitel So
The third be not least. So Pool Party have by far the best setup from all the pool parties.
To be honest, if there's one that you must attend while you’re in Bangkok, So Sofitel Pool Party should probably be the number one on your list because of where it's located.
The party is on the 7th floor of So Sofitel Hotel with an infinity pool overlooking the famous Lumpini Park. It's simply unbeatable.
You've also got 2 areas with 2 different kind of music.
EDM and electro next to the pool and Hip-Hop / R&B on the other side of the building. 😁🎉
It was also of the first ever monthly pool party in Bangkok and it's still to this day one of the best.
The only down side is the Pool area that is quite small (not the infinity pool) and the price is getting quite high.
A package in the VIP area is gonna set you back 8,500฿ for 1 bottle of vodka and 4 entrances.
And there's not that many tables outside of the VIP area on the pool side, so if you want one, go there early or book in advance.
Entrance is 600฿ with 1 drink and packages start around 8,000฿.
So Pool Party is every last Saturday of the month.
Find out more about their next event on facebook or on So Sofitel Bangkok's website.
Pool Party in Bangkok : Mojo Tips
Never been to a pool party in Bangkok ?
Then here are a few tips for you :
Most pool parties in Bangkok have good deals on bottles and are usually a bit cheaper than regular clubs.
So take advantage of that !
And when it gets crowded you’ll be happy to get a table and somewhere you can put your drink. Because you're not allowed to swim with your drink.
Get a Locker
Been there, done it. It’s definitely a must. But there's often a limited number of lockers so you better come early.
They also cost around 200฿ + a deposit, so make sure you bring enough cash.
But as most of those parties are packed it’s a nightmare to keep an eye on your change or your bag while you're getting fucked up.
So play it safe. Put your clothes and all your valuable in the locker and only keep your phone and money with you.
Most Pool Party in Bangkok invite models, so don’t be surprised by all this beautiful girls and guys going around. You’ll get used to it. 😅
And of course you're gonna have a fare share of gym addicts going there to flex their muscles.
After all, when you’ve been sweating your ass off all week at the gym, I understand that you want to show off a bit. Make sense.
But don’t be impressed, it's Bangkok, not Ibiza or Miami. Most people are super chill and the girls really open.
Pool Party in Bangkok, what you should know :
- There's one every Saturday, almost. Look on facebook to find the next event.
- Go there early to get a table and a locker (and often a free drink or open bar for 1 hour)
- Book in advance, for groups. Tables are usually really limited.
- Bring cash ! Bangkok is getting more expensive and if you've gotta do it, do it right.
- Workout ! You don't want to be the fattest guy there.
