Whatever your hotel style, a pool is often at the top of the list when it comes to choosing accommodation for your next getaway. There's simply nothing quite like lying in bliss beside the crystal clear waters of a stunning pool.
However, some pools stand out from the rest when it comes to luxury, indulgence, and sheer impressiveness. If you're after a hotel with a pool that's something extra special, why not take a dip in one of these?
Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali
This stunning hotel offers five-star accommodation in all respects, but the main attraction of the Ubud Hanging Gardens is definitely the tiered, split-level infinity pool. This spectacular swimming pool has topped more than one list as the best hotel pool in the world, and it's easy to see why. The curved design is suspended high above the rainforest floor in a truly serene setting of lush tropical flora and sweeping views. Indulge in a poolside spa treatment or dine on the water's surface on a floating deck, or simply wade in the glassy shallows while overlooking valley below.
Delamore Lodge, New Zealand
New Zealand is known for its simply stunning coastal views and glittering water, and the infinity pool at Delamore Lodge on Waiheke Island offers a simply breathtaking view of the ocean surrounds. Swim up to the edge of the expansive clifftop pool for panoramic views of Owhaneke Bay and surrounding islands. Relax and unwind while watching sailboats cruise past, the clouds roll by overhead and admire the simply gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean from this prime position.
Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
You're bound to have seen images of this famous hotel pool in Singapore. The Marina Bay Sands pool is one of the most well-known and incredible pools in the world. It's located at the very top of this Singapore skyscraper hotel, and stretches an incredible 150 metres across, according to CN Traveller. From the edge, you'll be transfixed by the expansive view that overlooks the city and surrounds. The sheer drop you'll encounter at the edge of the pool may be enough to test the nerve of some travellers, making swimming a relaxing and thrilling experience all in one!
Grace Santorini, Santorini
The clean lines, fresh white exterior and clifftop position of this hotel pool are all what you'd expect from Greek architecture and design, and that's part of what makes the one at Grace Santorini on Santorini so stunning. What's truly special about this pool, however, is the absolutely flawless views it offers across the Caldera. Spend an evening relaxing with cocktails by the poolside bar while you gaze out to the dreamlike sparkling waters and beyond with your lover. A camera is an absolute must!
