Bali’s Hanging Gardens Pool
Slightly less daring than the infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands–but not completely void of adventure–is Bali’s raised step infinity pool located at the Hanging Gardens Ubud.
This split level pool floats above the treetops and offers patrons complete immersion in the lush Balinese jungle. In efforts to complement the natural surroundings, the pool’s design is intended to echo the deep stepping rice paddies of the region.
Amangiri Resort, The Grand Canyon
Located in the Grand Canyon and around the southern tip of Utah, the Amangiri resort is home to a very unique pool. The resort itself is built around a central swimming pool whose defining feature is its massive and ancient stone escarpment that juts in directly from the desert surroundings.
For many visitors who are parched after a long day of exploring, this gorgeous pool in the middle of the Utah desert may have them believing that they are bearing witness to a mirage.
Burj Al Arab, Dubai
Located in East Dubai, the pool at Burj Al-Arab is the only indoor pool featured in this list, but its intricate designs, crystal clear waters, and grand sky view make it a worthy addition. In an area synonymous with visual extravagance, this opulent pool does not disappoint.
Amazing Pools: Blue Lagoon, Iceland
Last but not least is Iceland’s Blue Lagoon Geothermal pool. The warm, mineral rich waters of this expansive man-made lagoon are reputed to help people with skin ailments such as psoriasis. Fed by the water of the nearby geothermal power plant, the water ranges from between 98 to 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
The silica and sulfur may not be luxurious to your nose, but the scenic landscape and healing waters are certainly a boon to your body and mind. Blue Lagoon is one of the most visited tourist spots in all of Iceland.
