There’s nothing better than diving into a pool to beat the heat on a hot day. But what happens when that pool is so spectacular it takes your breath away even before your toes touch the water?
Let’s take a look at the most incredible pools around the globe.
1. Santorini, Greece
If you love the Santorini look as much as Lana from Three Birds Renovations, then you can’t go past the Perivolas Lifestyle Houses in Oia – one of the most beautiful parts of the island.
2. Utah, USA
Raise your hand if you fancy yourself a bit of an adventure seeker? Then Amangiri, a remote hideaway in Canyon Point, Utah, is calling your name.
The incredible Instagram-worthy pool, which features a boulder jutting through its centre, takes in the best of the stunning natural surrounds while allowing sun-seeking hotel guests to enjoy the ultimate in luxury.
3. Koh Samui, Thailand
No, it’s not what you think – this pool is lined with incredible blood-red tiles, giving it a show-stopping aesthetic.
Located on Thailand’s idyllic Koh Samui near Chaweng Beach, The Library is an elegant property that’s part of the Design Hotel’s group of impeccably styled locations around the world.
This awe-inspiring infinity pool is 57 stories high, with a killer view over Singapore’s lush skyline. Surely it’s one of the most social media-friendly views in the world, right?
The friendly staff at the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel will bring cocktails right to your sun lounger as you take a dip in the massive 150m pool.
Consider yourself a true water baby? Well, you can’t go past the pools at Soneva Fushi, a drool-worthy resort in the Maldives.
Many of the stunning villas boast private pools, the best of which is the nine-bedroom, 5,540sqm private reserve villa (pictured above) which even features a waterslide.
Feel like your pool game is too tame lately?
Spread across 17 epic hectares, this waterpark was voted the Middle East’s Leading Water Park at the 2016 World Travel Awards.
The waterslide starts at the top of a pyramid and speeds through a shark-filled aquarium. Omg.
7. Valparaíso, Chile
At the time of building, this giant pool was the largest in the world stretching over 8 hectares in Chile, South America.
Including a Louvre-style glass pyramid and filled with water from the nearby Pacific Ocean, this pool is only available to those lucky enough to have an apartment in the neighbouring residential towers.
