infinity Pool: Destinations That Will Grab Your Attention
The infinity pool is a classic luxurious oasis to escape the summer heat. It’s a piece of design that’s been around for decades, and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Here are luxury pools from around the world that will make you want to dive right in.
Infinity Pool At Villa d’Este, Italy:
This pool is one of the most famous infinity pools in the world. Located in Tivoli, just outside of Rome, this pool is surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens and is one of the most photographed pools in the world. When it’s full, the pool has a surface area of 28,000 square feet. Source For more information on this pool, check out ‘A View to Remember’ by Corie George.
Millennium Pool, Holland:
This pool is the brainchild of Dutch innovators Jacopo & Miguel Silvestrini who wanted to create the “world’s greatest infinity pool. It took seven years to complete the pool, and it was opened to the public in 2000. It took eight experts 12 1/2 hours each and every day to perfect the designs for the pool. The pool’s interior is mirrored, creating an almost 3-D effect, and is said to be one of the most relaxing and aesthetically pleasing pools in the world.

Infinity Pool At Park Hyatt Hotel in Bali, Indonesia:
The cost to buy this super cool infinity pool is just $8,500 U.S. (Which is less than a hockey puck). It makes The Grove Shopping Center in Nashville look like it cost over a million to build. While the pool is open seasonally — usually in the summer — adults can book a 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom or a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom infinity pool for as much as $10,000 per night. There’s even a “diving island” area off the back corner.
W Retreat & Spa in Vieques, Puerto Rico:
The infinity pool at the W Retreat & Spa in Vieques, Puerto Rico is a new favorite. It’s on a private beach on a secluded island, and feels like it’s floating in the ocean, with views of El Yunque Rainforest in the background. It’s brighter than most pools in our list, and the pearly white surface invites you to soak up the ocean views. Connect with W, another brand that’s focused on well-being, rejuvenation, and health. This luxury oasis has a private beach and pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Lake Nakuru National Park, Rwanda. It’s where members of the presidential staff, NETA staff, government ministers, and senior military officers get a weekly “kitchen escape” during the annual December bushmeat policy in Rwanda. According to W, the 37-foot-long pool has a magnificent view of Lake Nakuru, with its clear, turquoise water reflecting off the turquoise waters of Lake Nakuru. There’s no charge for this pool, but if you sign up for the NETA staycoder program, you may be able to save 50% off regular rates. If lounging around in a swanky, mirrored pool doesn’t quite have the appeal of a private tropical getaway, then this Caribbean hideaway is sure to get your attention. Situated on a private island in the Bahamas, The Tamarind is a 45-foot, built-in pool named after local rum, the Tamarind Brand. The pool is named for the tropical fruits that are grown in the forest surrounding the island, and it has panoramic ocean views. This pool is a small gem on Grand Bahama Island, and if you’re staying at The All American in Nassau, Bahamas, they’ve got a three-night package that includes a tropical getaway for two. For more information, check them out on TripAdvisor. This luxury getaway was formerly a hotel but was turned into a co-living space. It’s located in Mesa Verde Ranch, a 2,800-acre estate in Oxnard, California, the special events haven for the California trade show and the annual Burning Man festival.
Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa in Riviera Maya, Mexico:
Who doesn’t want to take a swim in a beautiful infinity pool while you’re on vacation? Well, if you’re planning a vacation to Mexico, you might want to consider the Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa. Four miles of infinity-edge pool surrounded by crystal-clear water and a massive stone patio overlooks the crystal-clear lagoon.
And those aren’t the only features on this private infinity pool—there’s also a steam room, a restaurant, a bar for when you get bored of swimming, and all the accoutrements you need to relax and unwind after a day full of events. If you’re traveling to Singapore, there’s the Johor ONE infinity pool in Negara Besar Park. It features a retractable roof, allowing you to enjoy the Private infinity Pool while lounging in the shade on luxurious bays that can be lifted for privacy. Or, if you’re staying at an international hotel, there’s the Villa Clara Clara penthouse complex in Singapore.
Like most “in-the-know” pool lovers, you’ll be tempted to drop by at night for a dip (and this pool has a private laundry room), but there’s another reason you’ll want to sip on some Haut Medoc. The spa boasts 27 miles of beautifully manicured beaches, the largest mono-glass infinity pool in Southeast Asia, 54 climate-controlled heated pools, six outdoor fitness centers, a Jacuzzi, and more.
If you’re hitting the Caribbean, there’s the Swim Club Jacuzzi & Relaxation Pool in St. Thomas Beach, U.S. Virgin Islands, which reclines 40 feet above the water for some real snorkeling. The private club has private lessons, swimsuits, soda fountain, lounge furniture and more. If you’re in Mexico City, there’s the Haleaca National Aquarium’s underwater Lego Friends’ Lava Island, a two-deck, 2,000-square-foot oasis. It’s the perfect spot for relaxed moments on the water, with two lounges surrounding a giant rock with retractable glass ceilings at the top.
Infinity Pool At Hilton Hotel in Dubai, UAE:
The infinity pool at the Hilton Hotel in Dubai, UAE, offers a mesmerizing view of the ocean and the Burj Al Arab, a luxury hotel shaped like a boat. There might not be anything more life-changing than a swim in the Mediterranean’s calm blue waters or exploring the modern, archetypal art of a waterfront resort like the Windsor Castle in Dubai. Not only is the Moroccan Revolution Pool an iconic attraction, but it also features calming waterfalls and a vibrant deck that’s both grandiose and intimate— perfect for those days when you need to get away from the stresses of the day.
If you really want to stretch your legs, get a little extra out of a Turkish spa. The Bahn Mi United Spa, situated in the heart of Istanbul, overlooks one of the iconic gardens of Eminonu, a major historic neighborhood. It’s frequented by VIP visitors who prefer relaxation over the traditional Turkish club vibe (perhaps a good reason to avoid the traditional dance floor at the nearby Ilmen Borovesi).
Although the spa’s website advises that swims are only allowed between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., those looking for an alternative time to relax can book a time at the Turkish Spa Unplug experience. This concrete jungle in Xi’an, China is so full of greenery it almost seems as though visitors have stepped into a Disney Jungle. Accessible only by a 25-foot long golden tunnel, the Sun Gate Pool is a breathtaking sight. Equipped with ultraviolet lights, it’s hot and bright, making it perfect for both young and old.
