Beautiful Pools around the World

The astonishing swimming pool at Mardan Palace Antalya in Turkey is a jewel on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Guests can swim with a variety of indigenous marine life at the resort’s spectacular swim reef, a man-made aquatic adventure lagoon.

Serenity is the aptly-named and much photographed adults-only lap pool at One and Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives. The striking infinity-edge pool with integrated spa and carved stone bed extends 30 meters into a bright blue lagoon on the Indian Ocean.

The Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA has two classical, opulent pools; the outdoor Neptune Pool and indoor Roman Pool. Designed by Hearst Castle architect Julia Morgan, the Neptune Pool was enlarged twice – the current version is 104 feet long by 58-95 feet wide and was completed in 1936.

If ocean-front pools are your idea of a dream pool, look no further than the Oceanfront Infinity Pool at Jumby Bay Island in Antigua. The lagoon-shaped “quiet” infinity pool blends seamlessly with the Caribbean Sea.

The Hanging Gardens of Bali curved infinity pool is suspended over a dense rainforest and gives swimmers the sensation of floating above the treetops. One of the most photographed pools in the world, it was named by Conde Nast Traveler as “The World’s Best Swimming Pool.”

Sometimes it’s the view from the pool that amazes and inspires us. That’s the case with the stunning views from the 4-bedroom Chongwe River House pool in Zambia. Guests immerse themselves in the African wilderness experience, enjoying pool views of the wildlife, Chongwe River, and the mountains beyond. And speaking of spectacular views, The Cambrian Adelboden pool has stunning Swiss Alps mountain views from every direction – pure bliss!

Tibet’s St. Regis Lhasa Resort Gold Energy Pool is famous for its shimmering gold tile surfaces. The heated salt-water pool is a “relaxation” pool, recommended for wading and relaxation only.

The Oberoi Udaivilas in Udaipur, India has an overwhelmingly beautiful pool that is directly accessible from private suites. The hotel pool offers tranquil views of sparkling Lake Pichola.

Without doubt, the seawater pool at San Alfonso del Mar Resort in Chile is one of the most spectacular pools in the world. It’s also the largest and one of the deepest around. Imagine a pool that holds 60 million gallons of water, is over nine football fields in length, and up to 115 feet deep!
