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.

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.
