An infinity pool is the ultimate in sheer hotel luxury. These unusual swimming pools create the magical illusion of merging with their surroundings, whether its a bustling skyline or a tranquil shore, and turning an ordinary swim into a breathtaking experience. Here are 5 of our favourite infinity pools from around the world.
Gran Canaria – Gloria Palace Amadores
Pools with good views are one thing, but this infinity pool takes it to the next level. High on a clifftop, overlooking the ocean, the Gloria Palace Amadores pool perfectly merges with the peaceful blue of the sea and the endless tranquil sky. Relax as you are cooled by the breeze from the ocean and enjoy the sound of the waves lapping on the shore far below.
Tenerife – Costa Adeje Gran
This is a 5 star pool in a 5 star location. The stunning pool blends perfectly with the tropical theme of the hotel, creating a tranquil space that seems to simply melt into the sea. Palm trees and colonial style buildings reflect in the cool blue water to create an oasis of calm and relaxation.
Thailand – The Aquamarine Resort and villa
Set on a hillside, high above Kamala Beach, this spectacular pool provides breathtaking views of the turquoise Andaman Sea. The hotel itself is a tranquil, secluded getaway in a romantic tropical setting, nestled among ancient trees and ponds. For peace, quiet and traditional Thai hospitality, this exotic retreat is not to be missed.
Santorini – Astro Palace Hotel
This modern, graceful hotel has been designed to blend in with its natural surroundings, making creative use of light and space with the accent on natural tones and textures throughout. The elegant sophistication of the design extends to the infinity pool which appears to blend with the sky and the legendary azure waters of the Aegean Sea.
Kefalonia – Apostolata Resort Spa
With an enviable hillside location overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Ionian Sea, the infinity pool at the Apostolata Resort Spa is the perfect place to relax and cool off during the day, or enjoy the spectacular sunset with a drink at the poolside bar later on.
