It's almost always summer in Bangkok. The sun is blasting, it's hot, everybody's excited... That means only one thing, it's time to hit a pool party in Bangkok! 😎
One of the great things about Bangkok is to have pool parties every month with almost at least one every Saturday now.
Even during the rainy season.
But November to May is really the best time!
Now you're probably wondering what is the difference between them? Which one should you go to? In other words, what is the best pool party in Bangkok?
Let's get right to it, here are the pool parties in Bangkok I would recommend to my friends and a few tips at the bottom of the page for your first time. 👊

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, a good crowd, and a few shows and performances to get the party going.
- A good lineup, no matter what style of music as long as they get people moving.
- Good drink packages, because we're not going to go through this sober!
So it sounds pretty simple and it is, but some do it better than others.
Beats by the Pool at W Bangkok
Even though the W Pool Party has been around for a while, it used to be only once a year during Songkran festival.
But since September 2018 they started doing monthly pool parties, 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 has 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 W Bangkok Facebook or Instagram accounts to have more info about the next event pool party.
Westin Pool Party at Westin Grande Sukhumvit
Right now, the Westin Pool Party and W Pool Party are the two pool parties in Bangkok 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 parties 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 has by far the best setup and view from all the pool parties in Bangkok.
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 its incredible location and view.
The party is on the 7th floor of So Sofitel Hotel with an infinity pool overlooking the famous Lumpini Park. The view and the pool are just amazing.
You've also got 2 areas with 2 different kinds 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 downside 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 are not that many tables outside of the VIP area on the poolside. So if you want one, go there early or book in advance.
Entrance is 600฿ with 1 drink and packages start at 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 :
Get Bottles 🍾🍾🍾
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 clothes or your bag while you're getting fucked up.
So play it safe. Put all your clothes and valuable in a locker and only keep your phone and money with you.
Most Pool Party in Bangkok invite models, so don’t be surprised by all these beautiful girls and guys all around. You’ll get used to it. 😅
And of course, you're gonna have a fair 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 (almost) one every Saturday. Keep an eye 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. 😂
