It is fair to say that a luxury holiday isn’t complete without relaxing with a good book in a pool. However, when in an exotic destination, why compromise on quality with a normal pool?
While the stock standard rectangular backyard pool doesn’t exude lavishness, an infinity pool certainly does. Requiring extensive structural detailing, infinity pools give the impression that water flows over the edges – a pool with essentially no boundary. Combine this illusion with unrivalled picturesque scenery and you have a pool experience that won’t soon be forgotten.
No matter your age, few people can resist the temptation of a pool. With this in mind, here are three infinity pools that are waiting for your presence.
1. Alila Villas, Uluwatu, Bali
Bali has a reputation for luxury – the combination of beach, sun and fun complemented by stunning architecture and sumptuous surroundings. But if there was one Bali location that embodied all of these key elements, it would be Alila Villas on Uluwatu.
Perched on an elevated plateau, overlooking the magnificent Indian Ocean, sits the resort’s cliff-edge 50-metre infinity pool. Enjoy the peace and quiet of Uluwatu with a cool beverage while watching the orange sun set below the horizon.
Take the opportunity to visit Spa Alila in the morning, before slipping into the main pool with a good book, a hat and all the hours in the day to enjoy!
2. One&Only Reethi Rah, the Maldives
If you are looking for a tropical island paradise where an infinity pool fits seamlessly into the environment, it would be in the Maldives. The country, in the heart of the Indian Ocean off the coast of Sri Lanka, is well-known for its luxury resorts, but the infinity pool at One&Only Reethi Rah certainly rises above the rest.
Stretching out into a crystal-blue lagoon, the infinity pool blends into the warm ocean, providing guests with the best of both worlds. In fact, the adult-only lap pool is located in the most quiet and peaceful part of the resort – offering a chance to relax and stare out into the blue paradise in front of you.
However, this infinity pool is more than just a pool. At one end, there is a carved stone bed with an internal Jacuzzi, adding another layer to this extraordinary pool experience. Where else in the world can you enjoy three different water environments in the space of a few metres?
3. The Cambrian, Adelboden, Switzerland
Infinity pools are commonly associated with hot locations where you can refresh yourself with a glass of wine and a book. However, in the middle of the Swiss Alps, the weather is more often the source of a cool change than many other infinity pools.
At The Cambrian, Adelboden, guests are treated to a heated infinity pool that can take the edge of any long day of skiing up in the Swiss Alps. From every corner of the pool, there are unrivalled views of lush forests, snow-capped peaks and tundra flowers.
If the outdoor pool gets too chilly, the luxury resort also features multiple indoor pools, a Finnish sauna and a rain shower – relaxation personified.
Of course, if you prefer to visit Switzerland during the summer months, this infinity pool can offer relief from the European sun. This said, the view is still amazing, minus the snow!
