Most Impressive Pools in the World?

Sure it's important to immerse yourself in culture when you travel, but sometimes you just want to immerse yourself in an amazing pool! I'm doing some day dreaming and thinking about my travel bucket list...what are the most incredible/beautiful/impressive pools that you know of (or have been to)?

    Hands down the infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands. Still haven't been, but just look at it! It's on the 57th floor of a hotel in a gorgeous city. Definitely urban chic and up high on my bucket list :)

    Hi Trevor!

    Why don't head to the warm and charming Turkey? The pools of Pamukkaleare a unique experience. Of course, you can't swim in them, but you can relax, going from the hot water to the cold one. And the view: awesome!Pamukkale

    I'm still wondering how my best friend and I managed to weasel our way in to this luxury hotel without getting caught, but we somehow got away with it.

    If you ever make it to Greece, the Cavo Tagoo hotel and spa had one of the coolest pools I have ever been in. We had a view looking out over all of Mykonos Island and far into those deep blue mediterranean waters. Cavo Tagoo

    Marina Bay Sands infinity pool has the fame but many other man-made and natural pools are much more impressive, just have a look:

    • Hanging Gardens Ubud Bali multi-leveled infinity pool is in the middle of the jungle and facing an ancient temple

    Hanging Gardens Ubud


    • Badeschiff in Berlin is a floating public pool on the River Spree open year-round

    Badeschiff

    • Agua Azul Waterfalls in Chiapas, Mexico (my favorite) is a turquoise river that tumbles down natural limestone steps, forming a series of amazing cascades with pools in calcareous depressions

    Agua Azul Waterfalls

    The Library Koh Samui

    • Bondi Icebergs Pool in Sydney is a legendary Olympic 100 years old saltwater pool facing the Tasman sea

    Bondi Icebergs Pool

    • San Alfonso del Mar in Chile. The coast is too dangerous to swim so they build the world's largest swimming pool (1km length!)

    San Alfonso del Mar

    • Cenote Ik kil in Yucatan, Mexico is a sacred natural hole with exuberant vegetation and waterfalls that Mayans used for both relaxation and rituals

    Cenote Ik kil

    The Standard Spa, Miami Beach

    This is just a short list and I prefer natural ones, but hey the best hidden spots are yet to be discovered...

    If you have a 4x4 vehicle and don't mind a steep 20 minute hike to the top of a waterfall, Gunlom Plunge Pools in Kakadu National Park in Australia are awesome! It's one of the few crocodile free places to swim in the park.Kakadu National Parkimage from positiveworldtravel.comKakadu National Parkimage from chasingroos.wordpress.comThere are lots of gorges with waterfalls and swimming holes along the Gibb River Rd in the Kimberley of Western Australia. One that I liked a lot is Lennard River Gorge. It requires a 4x4 and a short hike.Lennard River Gorgeimage from pandashellaroundaus.wordpress.com

    My favorite pools?

    The Devil's pool, right on the edge of Victoria Falls. You can swim there only when the water level is low. Look over the edge -- 100 meters straight down! http://www.snopes.com/photos/natural/devilspool.asp

    Saline Valley Hot Springs now part of Death Valley National Park. Don't even think about going there on your own -- you will never find it. You have to have a friend who can take you there. Here are some photos -- http://leler.com/gallery/v/desert07/P3095103.JPG.html

    I love the pools at Pamukkale, Turkey, too! Magical waters there. My other 2 favorite pools in the world are the 3-tiered pools at Amankila in Manggis, Bali and the Aquatonic pool at the AYANA Resort and Spa in Jimbaran, Bali. Both pools have spectacular sea views.AmankilaI've never seen any Aquatonic pool as large as the Ayana one - it's a must visit when in Bali for the best water massage therapy. Tip: time the spa visit to coincide with sunset for even more breathtaking view. Photos don't do justice - must be there to experience.

    The Pools at Pools at Ohe'o aka The Seven Sacred Pools, part of Haleakalā National Park on Maui. Back in the '70's we visited it with my in-laws. When we got to the area, my father-in-law asked the Park Ranger where the Seven Sacred Pools were. The Ranger said, "There are about 15 of them, Pick any Seven." If the weather is good and it isn't over-run by tourists, it's a wonderful spot. Make sure there aren't any flash floods before taking the long drive there. The photos are from that visit,Pools at Ohe'o so the quality is not very good..Pools at Ohe'o

    Almost anything in Iceland. The only two I went to: Hofsós and the Lake Myvatn Nature Baths. But you could seriously just drive around the country visiting hot springs and other geothermal heated pools.

      I second this. The heavily promoted hot springs is the Blue Lagoon, but I enjoyed others far more. Even the city pool in Reykjavik was more fun, and far cheaper. There are hot springs everywhere! · (0 likelikes)
