From Backyard to Bali: 7 Incredible Pools
With summer in full swing and temperatures on the rise, it’s time to start hitting your local pool. While the standard pool designs can cool you off, why not dive into the deep end with some truly incredible pools? Daydream of faraway places, or get inspiration for your own backyard oasis with these pools from around the world:
The Library Hotel is located in Koh Samui, Thailand. Its swimming pool features a mosaic of deep red tiles contrasting against the white sandy beach it faces. The hotel’s library offers a collection of more than 1,300 books to read poolside.
In Budapest, Hungary, the Gellert Hotel pool is actually mineral baths that fill the thermal pool, naturally reaching temperatures of up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s reminiscent of a Roman bath, with mosaics, marble sculptures, and columns under a gorgeous stained glass skylight.
If you’re lucky enough to stay at the Hanging Gardens Hotel in the Balinese jungle, you’ll get to enjoy sunsets through the trees as you swim in a two-tiered infinity pool that seems to hang in the treetops over the lush rainforest and river below.
San Alfonso del Mar
The San Alfonso del Mar resort in Chile is one of the world’s largest, with space for small paddle boats and sailboats. The crystal-clear pool looks more like a lagoon at more than 20-acres. Its 66 million gallons of water is filtered from the Pacific Ocean.
Bauhaus Bedroom Pool
Located in Atlanta, Georgia, this private residence pool sits atop the master bedroom. With a glass bottom and a large skylight in the master bedroom ceiling, you’ll drift to sleep feeling like you’re under the sea.
A boutique hotel in Santorini, Greece, the pool offers the largest infinity pool on the island, where you can swim up to the edge and gaze across the sparkling cobalt-blue Aegean Sea, which is particularly impressive at sunset.
