7 penthouses with private swimming pools

A penthouse that comes with its own sky garden with panoramic city views and a swimming pool —that would probably fit the description of luxury high-rise living. did a quick search and found that it is not difficult to find a penthouse on the secondary market that offers nice views but it is definitely tough to find penthouses that have private swimming pools.

Nevertheless, we found them and picked seven high-rise residential projects in Kuala Lumpur that offer penthouses, each with its private pool. The price may not matter to those who can afford them, but really, how much do they cost?
