A first class, dream holiday – you can experience one anywhere in the world. There’s nothing better on a rainy Sunday afternoon than scrolling through a gallery of chic hotels and daydreaming. The pictures of infinity pools are especially cool. From a distance, it seems like the pools are merging with the background. That feeling when you lean on the pool edge and look out at the sea, the tropical rainforest or even the rooftops of a city, is indescribable!
These are the most beautiful infinity pools in the world
Hanging Gardens Ubud, Bali
The Hanging Gardens Ubud is one of those hotels which just tempts you to dream. This hotel is huddled up against a mountainside and is surrounded by Balinese nature. Guests can relax in the numerous small villas. The heart of the entire complex is the impressive two-storey infinity pool which seems to disappear into the forests. Simply amazing!
Rocabella Santorini Hotel
Heavenly pools aren’t always half a world away. The Greek island of Santorini offers some top hotels which also come with an infinity pool. One such hotel is the Rocabella Santorini Hotel. You can celebrate weddings quite romantically here surrounded by incredible scenery, or simply watch the goings on of the Mediterranean Sea below.
Strawberry Hill Hotel, Jamaica
Jamaica is a real dream destination. You can really count your blessings if you’re staying at the Strawberry Hill Hotel. This luxury hotel offers not only greatly designed rooms, but also includes a wonderful infinity pool, which is located on a slope and offers the guests a fantastic view over Jamaica.
Hotel Grand Central, Barcelona
Barcelona is a trendy city. Sightseeing, shopping and beaches in the heart of the city – the former capital of Spain has it all. After a thrilling day in the city, the guests of Grand Central Hotel in Barcelona can treat themselves to an evening swim on the roof terrace. Relaxing over the rooftops of the Old Town – just fantastic!
Boucan by Hotel Chocolate
The Caribbean island of St. Lucia is the ultimate celebrity hotspot. But even normal people can wallow in luxury here. A very special hotel was opened here, in the middle of a chocolate plantation, in 2012. Not just relaxation but also pleasure are the main focus here in Boucan by Hotel Chocolate. There are local products in the restaurant and a whole load of chocolate of course. The pool of the hotel is a real hear turner – you can let your eye wander on the horizon here!
One & Only Rheeti Rah, Maldives
This dream destination just can’t be left out from a list of the most beautiful infinity pools. The Maldives are known for astonishing sandy beaches, turquoise blue sea and of course a dreamy underwater world full of colourful fish and trusting marine life. The One & Only Rheeti Rah Hotel offers it all and what’s even better, it has a perfect infinity pool to top it all off. Paradise!
The Joule Hotel, Dallas
Perhaps Dallas is not your usual city break destination – but you should reconsider this simply because of the pool. The Joule Hotel is a real art show. The undefeated highlight is the infinity pool on the roof. This one also hangs over the roof. From a distance, it looks like a glassed balcony. Here, guests can relax, swim some lengths and observe the bustle on the street below. Exceptional!
Jade Mountain, St. Lucia
The Jade Mountain Resort is worth every penny. After all, every room has its own pool here. It doesn’t matter which type you book – luxury is guaranteed! However the heart of the resort is the big infinity pool, where guests can enjoy the view of volcanic cone of Grand Piton and Petit Piton, which are typical for the Caribbean Islands. A first class retreat!
Hacienda Na Xemena, Ibiza
The Hacienda Na Xemena is a real insider tip for those who want to avoid the typical hotels of Ibiza. Here, in a finca, an example of typical Ibizan architecture, you can blow away some steam and relax far away from all the hustle and bustle of local parties. The complex is nestled up to the rugged coast and impresses with its service and one of a kind pool. Guests at this accommodation have a view of the Mediterranean Sea on two levels and can also observe some unique sunsets.
W Retreat Koh Samui
Thailand is amazing – both adventurers and peace pursuers can find happiness here! After an exciting day and exploration tours with a scooter, hotel guests can relax in W Retreat Koh Samui and take advantage of the seats at the astonishing infinity pool. The water seems to be merge seamlessly with the turquoise blue gulf of Thailand!
Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
Singapore is one of the most expensive cities in the world, so it’s not surprising to see extravagant hotels with amazing infinity pools here. One that really stood out to me is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, which has a grandiose pool overlooking the rooftops of Singapore. Simply breathtaking!
The Residence Zanzibar, Tanzania
Zanzibar has everything to get holidaymakers’ hearts racing – dream-like beaches, luxurious hotels, tranquillity and stunning infinity pools. The Residence Zanzibar has all of this covered. The hotel’s infinity pool makes it look as if it’s joined seamlessly to the Indian Ocean! Wonderful!
It doesn’t matter which pool I look at, I’d love to jump into any one of them right away! I’ve noticed that there are more infinity pools than I previously thought. They all convey a feeling of endlessness and offer a view of the wonderful horizon. If you still don’t want to spend a holiday on the balconies, it’s your fault entirely. Even if you’re not planning to head down south this summer, I might have some luxury deals with such a special pool in store for you!
