For those who love water fun at the highest level, in this video you can find the most amazing swimming pools that you definitely have to try out!
11. Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands
Imagine taking a relaxing rooftop swim surrounded by one of the most breathtaking city skyline views! The Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is all about luxury and is the world’s longest suspended swimming pool. At nine times the length of an Olympic swimming pool, it’s also the world’s largest infinity pool, which means plenty of room for you and everyone else and not feel squished!
10. Ubud Hanging Gardens
If city skylines aren’t exactly your thing, and you’d rather have a beautiful view of nature, the pool at the Ubud Hanging Gardens in Bali might be more up your alley. Like the pool at Marina Bay Sands, it’s what’s known as an “infinity pool,” which gives the illusion that the water is spilling out of the pool and onto whatever lies below.
9. The Cambrian
Since we’re on the topic of swimming amongst some of the world’s most beautiful scenery, let me ask you this: how would you like to experience the Swiss Alps from the cozy waters of an outdoor thermal pool?
8. Blue Lagoon
Iceland is known for its amazing natural waters, and boasts one geothermal spa that, while not natural, is still impressive in its own right, and perhaps it’s even worth the international trip! At any given time, the water in the Blue Lagoon’s man-made lake averages 102 degrees Fahrenheit (38.9 Celsius), with waters containing sulfur and silica, which are great for your skin.
7. Gold Energy Pool
You’ll bathe like royalty 12,000 feet above sea level at the Gold Energy Pool inside the St. Regis Lhasa Resort in Tibet. This pool is lined in gold leaf tile, giving the water a “blingy” hue and making the experience truly one-of-a-kind.
6. The Library Pool
This pool located in Koh Samui, Thailand gets its unique crimson hue from orange, yellow, and blood-red mosaic tiles. It’s bright and beautiful on its own, but it’s showcased even better by the blue ocean in the background, which stands in stark contrast!
5. Mardan Palace
Now, if you’re a true swimming pool enthusiast, your life won’t be complete until you visit the Mardan Palace in Antalya, Turkey. Built in 2008 by an Azerbaijani businessman, the top-notch resort has been called Europe’s most expensive luxury resort.
4. San Alfonso del Mar Seawater Pool
The world’s second-largest pool is in Algarrobo, Chile, about 62 miles west of Santiago. The massive, man-made lagoon is located at the private San Alfonso del Mar resort. Completed in 2006 at the sky-high cost of $1.5 billion, the pool held the Guinness Book of World Records title for the world’s largest pool until 2015.
3. Seagaia Ocean Dome
If you’re more interested in swimming in one of the world’s largest indoor pools, head on over to the Seagaia Ocean Dome in Miyazaki, Japan. This massive swimming pool, which was originally opened in 1993, is 300 feet wide and nearly 1,000 feet long.
2. Nemo 33
At 115 feet deep, Belgium’s Nemo 33 was the world’s deepest swimming pool from 2004 until 2014. There is one major catch to accessing it, however. You can’t go into Nemo 33 for a standard swim. It’s mostly used for scuba diving lessons. But if you have a passion for taking your skills to the next level, this non-chlorinated, indoor pool in Brussels is probably your dream training facility!
1. The Devil’s Pool
This pool proves that there’s a swimming pool for everyone – even the bravest adrenaline junkies! If you’re the daredevil type, you’ll want to skip all of the hotsy-totsy hotel and resort pools I just told you about and go straight to the Devil’s Pool, located in the Victoria Falls of Zambia and South Africa – the largest waterfalls in the world, and one of the Seven Natural Wonders.
