Amazing Swimming Pools - Some Inspiration!

Thinking about putting a pool in the garden? BetterMove has put together just a few for you to take a look at. Check out some of these AMAZING swimming pools from around the world and get some inspiration!

Last year BetterMove looked at some amazing swimming pools in some amazing back gardens, but this year we have notched it up a level.

Okay, so these swimming pools are in hotels and not houses, but it’s summer time and it’s hot outside, so we can dream!

The Serenity pool at the One & Only Reethi Rah resort in the Maldives is eye watering. It juts out into the ocean and appears to reach the distant horizon in an endless stretch of blue. Its minimalist design is super sleek and sophisticated.

The Joule Hotel in Dallas has a rooftop pool which is unique and is the one everyone wants to swim in. The pool itself is a structural miracle in the way it extends out from the tenth floor. The eight-foot-long projection which reaches out over Main Street, Dallas, has a glass wall at the end and the spine-tingling views down to the street below are enough to bring on an attack of acrophobia.

If the thought of swimming in a pool in the snow-covered Swiss Alps makes you shiver, think again. There’s an infinity pool at the Cambrian Hotel, which once you’re in it you won’t want to get out again even if it’s snowing. The pool is heated to a moderately warm 32°C and you don’t need to brave the cold when you get out either. The pool interconnects with the hotel’s indoor pool, and you can swim straight from one to the other through a special door.

The pool at the Sarojin resort in Khao Lak, Thailand, is an oasis of turquoise water surrounded by tropical jungle. This eighty-foot by eighty-foot leisure lagoon has three floating pavilions for lounging in and a Jacuzzi on one side if you’re in need of some invigorating water therapy. Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it? It gets even better after dusk when the pool is illuminated with spotlights. Just stunning!

There are pools with views, and then there are pools with views which will leave you utterly speechless. The huge infinity pool at the Grace Hotel on the Greek island of Santorini is one of the those. Take an early evening dip in this pool, and you’ll be watching the sunset on the horizon in a blaze of fiery colours. It is truly incomparable.

Some things are just not made for sharing, and that includes infinity pools. The pools are super sumptuous and merge visually into one with the Caribbean Sea. Imagine waking up and strolling out onto your balcony then stepping into your own pool. With no-one else there to interrupt your privacy (Apart from the people in the pictures!), you can swim or just float and take in the scenic views of the Piton Mountains.

The Sky pool at the Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus is an infinity pool with a difference. It fuses, as the name suggests, with the sky. The Sky pool is a mammoth, eighty-two foot long construction suspended on stilts forty feet above the ground. The end wall and a panel in the base are glass so when you swim you have the sensation you’re almost flying.

 

3. Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali, Indonesia

There’s only one thing better than an infinity pool, and that’s two infinity pools together. The split-level, freshwater pool at the Ubud Hanging Gardens is an infinity pool to dream about. Swimming in the top pool, you’ll be on eye-level with the tree canopies of the surrounding jungle and be able to look down into the pool below. In the lower pool, you can walk down the stone steps into the crystalline depths, lay on the central island or just chill in one of the semi-submerged seats while listening to the water cascading from above.

When is a pool not a pool? When it’s as big as the San Alfonso del Mar in Algarrobo. This mega pool measures a staggering three thousand three hundred feet long and covers a surface area of almost twenty acres. Stand on the edge of this pool, and you’ll get the illusion you’re just about to step into the ocean.

 

1. Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

The rooftop infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore as well as being one of the marvellous pools in the world is one of the most elite. The pool, which looks almost like an artificial river backed by tropical palm trees, reaches right to the edge of the building. Look down if you dare as it’s fifty-seven stories up from ground level. Day or night, the pool is open until eleven in the evening, one of the things that makes this pool so special is the incredible views over the city.
