Cool Pools in Amazing Exotic Locations

 

Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort in Abu Dhabi
This five-star resort is located on the edge of the stunning Liwa Desert, one of the world’s largest uninterrupted sand deserts. But it’s not just the amazing views out over the endless sand that have guests talking; the resort’s pool is extremely large and luxurious, being free form and surrounded by desert palm trees. At night, guests can swim in the lit up pool under a sky full of stars, which some say feels like ‘swimming on the surface of the moon’.

This incredible pool winds and wraps its way around 165 million year old sandstone rocks. Designed to blend into the natural landscape, this pool definitely achieves the desired effect, with guests treated to amazing views through the valley whilst swimming. All rooms in the resort are centred around the pool so all guests can benefit from this amazing feature. The serene atmosphere is fitting with the name of the resort, which means ‘peaceful mountain’.
