Hot swimming pools from around the world
Despite the doom and gloom of the recent global economic crisis, the latest international luxury hotels now boast some of the world’s most beautiful swimming pools. For the ultimate in luxury, unique five-star hotel pools are now considered to be hot destinations in themselves.
Top of our list is the stunning infinity pool at the luxury boutique Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas. The 12 metre heated salt water pool cantilevers out from the tenth floor, extending almost three metres off the edge of the building, with a glass window at the end for those who aren’t scared of heights.
Over in Oman, the Hideaway Zighy Bay is the latest boutique offering from the luxury resort company Six Senses. Located on the Musandam Peninsular, the resort is surrounded by dramatic mountains on one side, and a pristine white sandy beach and lagoon on the other. But for those who prefer lounging in the pool, you won’t be disappointed – the resort offers a total of 79 stunning pools each attached to their own exclusive five-star villa.
And finally, who could resist a dip in a pool as beautiful as its incredible lagoon environment? The pool at The One & Only Reethi Rah Resort in the Maldives is a stunning example of luxury hotel pool construction at its very best.
