10 must-see infinity pools around the world

Many of us consider a swimming pool to be one of the fundamental elements for a proper holiday, but no two pools are the same. And, of course, our favourite pool is the infinity pool. An infinity pool plays with our eyes and gives the impression of merging with the spectacular scenery behind it, be it the turquoise sea or the skyline of a metropolis.

We've put together a list of our favourite infinity pools around the world that we think are a must-see. And perhaps some of these will inspire you so much that you will want to plan a holiday specifically to go and see them!

1. Address Beach Resort, Dubai

If there is a Guinness Book of Records to be beaten, it's likely in Dubai! About 294 metres above the ground, on the 77th floor, is officially the highest infinity pool in the world. And not only that: it is also 75 metres long. You can get a breathtaking view of the city of Dubai from the top, as you do your laps. We've found rooms from £229 per night.

2. Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Legendary is the best adjective to describe Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Since its opening in 2010, the hotel is one of the most famous buildings in the world, thanks in part to its infinity pool on the 57th floor. To be able to enjoy this unique view, however, you'll be told that you need to be a guest of the hotel. But honestly, the Instagram photo alone is worth the investment, right? Incidentally, this pool was also the largest infinity pool in the world for a long time, with a length of 150 metres and a water content of almost 1.5 million litres. It's especially beautiful at night, when the pool is illuminated and the twinkling lights of Singapore's skyscrapers sparkle.

🏴‍☠️ Pirate tip: We've visited the pool without being a guest. Take the elevator in the lobby to the top floor and if anyone asks for a room key, just tell them you'd like to buy a drink at the bar.

3. TWA Hotel, New York

This next one is definitely unexpected, but if you love watching planes take off, you need to take a dip in the TWA Hotel's swimming pool. This airport hotel is located at JFK in New York City, which means you can enjoy views of one of the busiest runways in the world. Even if you're not a hotel guest, you can visit the pool bar for $25 (or $50 on weekends) with a day pass and take a few laps in the heated pool all year round. Plus, you can work out with a day pass to the gym, which is the largest hotel gym in the world. We think this is the coolest way to make a long layover a highlight of your trip.

4. Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Tanzania

Imagine watching elephants cooling off at the watering-hole, giraffes quietly nibbling at the leaves and zebras basking in the sun all from your infinity pool. This unique adventure is made possible at the Four Seasons Safari Lodge in Serengeti, Tanzania. Obviously, a night here is not cheap (over £1,400 a night!), but will there be a day in your life when you won't remember it? Indulge in typical African tapas at the resort's pool bar and your African dream will be completed to perfection.

5. Mountain Resort Feuerberg, Austria

The Mountain Resort Feuerberg is nestled in the Gerlitzen Alpe ski and hiking area at an altitude of 1,769 metres. With a view of the snow-capped peaks, you can wonderfully relax in the 4,500 m² spa, which boasts 11 saunas, 12 swimming pools and 16 oases of peace. The highlight is, of course, the 25-metre-long infinity pool, which in 2017 was voted the "coolest pool" in Europe. The mountain landscape of Austria is truly at your feet – the perfect end to a hard day on the slopes.

6. Cavo Tagoo, Greece

Located on the island of Mykonos is this 5-star spa hotel that was built into a rock and has a beautiful infinity pool with sun beds and a 40-metre-long Aquarium bar. Here you can have breakfast, snacks and cocktails and in the evening you can admire the most beautiful sunsets of your life on the Mediterranean Sea. If that's not enough for you, you can book the 45m2 Cave Suite separately, where you also have a private cave pool at your disposal.

7. Six Senses Yao Noi Resort, Thailand

As a guest of the Six Senses Yao Noi Resort hotel, you can secure your elegant private pool villa overlooking the beach or jungle landscape, but also enjoy its spectacular infinity pool. Surely you know the famous James Bond Bay, right? You usually have to share Phang Nga Bay with thousands of tourists, but thanks to its location on a cliff, the infinity pool offers stunning views of the famous limestone cliffs. Escape the crowds, have your own private retreat and indulge in incredible luxury.

8. Beresheet Hotel, Israel

We are introducing you to some truly impressive infinity pools, and even the Beresheet Hotel seems almost unreal. Perched on the cliffs overlooking the Negev desert, the infinity pool offers an exceptional view of the largest erosion crater in the world, the Ramon Crater. What else can you do in the middle of the desert? Either indulge in ultimate relaxation in the Carmel Forest Spa, hop on your mountain bike, or float across Israel's impressive landscape in a hot air balloon.

9. The Kayon Jungle Resort by Pramana, Bali

Bali is paradise for all infinity pool lovers, and you can also find the world's most photographed pool on the island of the gods – at The Kayon Jungle Resort in Pramana. Swim to the edge of the pool and be enchanted by the jungle of the Ubud Valley where bamboo, cocoa trees and monkeys await you. Staying here is a super experience, but there is another way to swim in the three tier pool. The hotel is connected to the Wanna Jungle Pool & Bar, where you can get the Day Pass for around £42, half of which can be used towards drinks and snacks.

10. Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus, Italy

In both summer and winter, the Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus is a breathtaking family-run boutique hotel in South Tyrol that focuses on holistic health. The highlight – by the way, absolutely Instagrammable! — is certainly the legendary heated outdoor infinity pool, which is located at a dizzying height of 20 metres above the ground. Here you will experience an alpine panorama that will easily take your breath away!

What do you think, pirates, are there any infinity pools you would add to this list?
