With summer just around the corner, there’s no better way to celebrate the sun-loving season than with a dip in a heat-quenching swimming pool. Here are six of the world’s most beautiful pools from luxury properties around the world.
Tschuggen Grand Hotel
A member of Swiss Deluxe Hotels, the Tschuggen Grand Hotel, a luxury resort in the spectacular Alpine region of Arosa at an altitude of over 5,900 feet, features four amazing pools at its Tschuggen Bergoase Spa. Complete with massage jets, hydro jets and a lounger, the indoor/outdoor relaxation pool at the Tschuggen Bergoase is the perfect retreat after a day in the mountains. The Tschuggen Bergoase designed by Mario Botta brings nature indoors and combines nature, warmth, light, water and rocks into a unique spa and pool area.
The singular Santiago
The Singular Rooftop Bar at The Singular Santiago is considered one of the best terraces in all of Santiago. With a privileged view of San Cristobal and Mount Santa Lucia and a bar with 115 spirits to choose from, the Rooftop Bar focuses on creating unique drinks, with a team of bartenders taking care of every detail, of spending time in this space to spend special. During the summer months, Singular Rooftop also opens its amazing rooftop pool to guests. The open-air oasis features a 26-foot marble bar, alfresco dining tables, and chaise lounges for soaking up the city sun or taking in sweeping views of Santiago.
The Ritz Carlton, Koh Samui
A tropical paradise set against the natural beauty of the Gulf of Thailand, The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui features a stunning infinity pool at its Spa Village Koh Samui. The signature spa pool cascades and is surrounded by the property’s open-air treatment pavilions. In a dedicated area of the resort, guests can bathe in the luxurious cabanas after their treatments and relax undisturbed.
Located in the Italian Dolomites at 5,900 feet above sea level, FORESTIS is a conceptual 5-star mountain retreat that celebrates simplicity. The pools at FORESTIS include the Plose spring water, one of the purest and lightest waters in the world, which offers ideal conditions for regeneration and healing. The spa features an indoor pool connected to an outdoor pool, allowing guests to take a relaxing dip while enjoying stunning views. In each of the two outer towers, a two-storey penthouse suite features its own private plunge pool and a spruce wood sauna with a unique view of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Nestled amidst the moon-like Makgadikgadi Pans and Kalahari Desert in Botswana, the pool at Jack’s Camp is a traveler’s haven. Shaded by an elegant canvas, the stunning pool surrounded by polished wooden planks offers respite amidst this desert destination. It is said to reflect the dappled nature of the nearby palm trees, setting the target apart from the ever-changing sand. The pool is slightly elevated to allow guests to look out over the endless grassy plains of the Makgadikgadi, and during the rainy season swimmers and sunbathers have the opportunity to witness some spectacular views of the zebra and wildebeest migrations that migrate to the area.
The Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa
The expansive infinity pool at The Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa in Johannesburg is the focal point of the hotel as it blends into the serene landscape of the Saxon and can be viewed from multiple vantage points. The infinity pool is surrounded by the property’s magnificent native gardens and offers peaceful and tranquil views that stretch into the distance. The seemingly endless pool and deck are ideal for relaxing, a great place to lounge, watch the sunset and admire the nearby well-stocked koi pond.
