Dazzling waters: 12 hotels with mind-blowing swimming pools

Offering more than just a comfortable activity option during that time between pursuing adventure and lazing in the sun, these swimming pools offer such magnificent views that they beat traditional touristic trips. We recommend that you take a look at these 12 swimming pools that will fascinate and inspire you.

Ohla Barcelona – Barcelona, Spain

The swimming pool of the Ohla Barcelona hotel overlooks Barcelona with its rooftop location, and when you look at the Sagrada Familia church from there, it seems as if you could hold your hand. The façade designed by artist Frederic Amat, equipped with protruding porcelain eyeballs and recognizable at first sight, will attract your attention while walking on the street, but it is the hotel terrace that will offer you a panoramic view of Barcelona’s most beautiful buildings. The best way to enjoy the rooftop Chill-Out Terrace of this formerly palace hotel is to dip your toes into the pool and sip a sweet cocktail. Those who like to get up early can take a yoga class and taste green smoothies before starting a day of sightseeing. It takes only a few minutes to reach the city center from the hotel, which makes it easy for people to be located near Plaza Catalunya; Of course, if you decide to leave the pool!

Hanging Gardens of Bali – Payangan, Bali, Indonesia

The infinity pool in Payangan makes people taste the ultimate happiness. The Hanging Gardens of Bali, the island of the gods, offers its guests the ultimate poolside experience. Wake up in the morning in your straw-roofed villa and gaze at the wild landscape of this tropical paradise consisting of cocoa and coffee trees and orchids. At night, indulge in refined food in its overwater gazebo, admire the candle-lit Dalem Segara Temple, and sleep soundly to the sounds of Balinese forests. And don’t stay that far: focus on rejuvenating your body and mind at the hotel’s award-winning spa. The spa offers therapies and treatments with quality local ingredients and ancient techniques for total relaxation. And this paradise can be reached in 90 minutes by car from Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Tanzania

You can find the Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti right in the heart of Tanzania’s world-renowned wildlife sanctuary, Serengeti National Park. The hotel is surrounded by vast plains and close to one of the wetlands, so you don’t have to go on a rugged safari to see the animals. You will just stare at you relaxing in the infinity pool as elephants, lions, giraffes, baboons and many other animals appear before you. Cool off in the crystal clear pool, enjoy an invigorating cocktail and admire the parade of Africa’s animal kingdom.

Delamore Lodge, Waiheke Island, New Zealand

The boutique beachfront hotel Delamore Lodge is an oasis of luxury, style and privacy. Located on the top of a hill on Waiheke Island, Delamore Lodge is built with a traditional Maori fishhook design. The main features of the hotel are designed to allow guests to rest and relax. You can unwind in the cave-like jacuzzi, get a massage at the luxury spa, and take a walk in the vast olive groves. The most interesting feature of the hotel is the heated infinity pool built right at the tip of the hill. The view of Owhanake Bay from the infinity pool makes you feel as if you are on a deserted island, not just 35 minutes from Auckland.

Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Tremezzina, Italy

Extreme luxury, extravagant and sophisticated: only a few words come to mind when describing the 100-year-old Grand Hotel Tremezzo. Located on the western shore of Lake Como, this iconic Art Nouveau building offers magnificent views of the Bellagio peninsula and the surrounding Grigne Mountains. The best way to enjoy these sights is through the floating pool placed on the transparent surface of the lake. You can be sure that the blue tones offered by the pool, which can be described as “water in water”, will stir your emotions. Once you’re in the water and recovering, you can use the private beach overlooking the pool to sunbathe.

Shangri-La at the Shard, London, United Kingdom

The name of this pool suffices to explain everything: Skypool. Europe’s highest pool awaits you on the 52nd floor of London’s iconic skyscraper The Shard. As a guest of the 5-star hotel Shangri-La at the Shard, you will have access to the magnificent infinity pool with stunning views of St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament, the Gherkin and Buckingham Palace. You’ll probably never want to get out of the 24-degree heated pool. If you can’t get enough of the London skies, you can enjoy this magnificent view by taking your drink from the adjacent Gong Bar and sitting on the soft sofas by the pool.

Thompson Toronto, Canada

Located in the arts-friendly King West Village neighborhood, home of the Toronto International Film Festival, the Thompson Toronto hotel opened its doors for the first time in 2010. From its ultra-chic rooms to its highest standard kitchen, we can say that the hotel exudes an air of refinement and luxury. The best part of the hotel is the terrace pool, which offers panoramic views of Toronto and Lake Ontario. Open to hotel guests only, the pool is located on an elevated platform, so you’ll find the water at eye level as soon as you step off the elevator. In the summer, the glass wall separating the pool and the bar is lifted, creating an open space to talk and socialize.

Amanyara Villas, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands

Derived from the Sanskrit word for ‘peace’, Amanyara Villas is a place that truly lives up to its name. This beachfront hotel is located in a secluded location on the west coast of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands. While all your needs are met at the hotel, the Northwest Point National Marine Park, which is adjacent to the hotel, also guarantees peace and quiet. Among the countless luxuries that Amanyara Villas offers is an infinity pool with black borders. Designed by architect Jean-Michel Gathy, the pool offers relaxing views of the ocean and the surrounding wooden platform also has sun loungers for sunbathing. If you stay at the hotel between February and April, you can watch the migrating humpback whales from the comfort of your sun lounger.

Upper House, Gothenburg, Sweden

If you are staying in Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city and your budget is suitable for this, we recommend you to stay at the 5-star hotel Upper House. Located on the upper floors of Tower 2 in Gothia Towers, this luxury hotel features a heated outdoor swimming pool surrounded by glass. Inspired by the glass viewing platform in the Grand Canyon, swimming in this pool also means enjoying stunning views of the city below and the starry sky above. Maybe this is one of the best ways to see the city!

Hacienda Uayamon, Campeche, Mexico

Built in 1700, Hacienda Uayamon is a historic boutique hotel located just 30 minutes from Campeche, and one of its priorities is to preserve the original architecture and decoration of the hacienda (large farmhouse used for farming) building it is located in. The hotel offers a romantic atmosphere with its lush vegetation, extensive ruins and modern comfort. As one of the most important examples of this, we can show the one-of-a-kind swimming pool. Set within the roofless ruin of a machine room, this small but pleasant swimming pool is built around Roman-inspired pillars. Since the pool has no roof, its waters embrace the light all day long, first with the bright morning sun and then with the faint glow of twilight.

Atlantis Royal Towers Autograph Collection – Paradise Island, Bahamas

You might think the pool is unnecessary in the Bahamas, which is full of tropical beaches. This will change when you stay at Atlantis Paradise Island. This giant ocean-themed beachfront hotel with 11 swimming pools is located in the north of Nassau. It would not be wrong to say that everyone can find a pool to their liking here: The Mayan temple-themed pool appeals to adventure lovers, the Blu Pool is ideal for those who are in love with the music of the 80s and 90s, and the Grotto Pool is ideal for those who want to relax thanks to its waterfalls. While 10 of the 11 pools are open to all family members, one pool – Cain at the Cove – is adults-only. There are two separate swimming infinity pools and private huts with sun loungers around them.

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

At the top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel, among the clouds, you will find a 150-metre-long infinity pool that boasts panoramic views of Singapore’s city. Accessible only to hotel guests, this pool is designed with a borderless look and gives the impression that there is nothing between you and the nearby skyscrapers. The pool runs along the platform built on top of the hotel’s three towers rising in the city’s financial district.
