Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali

This luxury boutique hotel is located amidst steep terraces planted with rice, and surrounded by ancient forests and hanging gardens. The split-level infinity pool, with breathtaking views from its two levels, gives you a feeling of being suspended above the valley below.

The Berkeley, London

There aren't many rooftop pools in London, and you may be surprised to find they are any at all, but this is one of them. The pool at The Berkeley in Knightsbridge, with its sliding roof, is a haven of tranquility in the busy capital.


W Hotel

W, Hong Kong

If you suffer from vertigo you might want to give this a miss. Located on the 76th floor of the hotel, 692 feet above Victoria Harbour, this is one of the highest swimming pools in the world. The experience isn't limited to the pool area either, with all of the hotel's rooms offering views across Hong Kong's skyline. 


Habita MTY

Hotel Habita Monterrey, Mexico

Two infinity pools, one of which is heated while the other is not, sit on top of this designer hotel, offering amazing views of the city and the Sierra Madre mountains beyond. Modern architecture and black-and-white interiors make this a cool location in a hot climate.

InterContinental Thalasso-Spa, Bora Bora

Accessible only by boat, this floating oasis in the South Pacific is set between the two hearts of Motu Piti Aau, a coral island on the barrier reef. The overwater villas perch on stilts above the lagoon, while the spa draws its water from the depths of the ocean.


The Joule

Joule Hotel, Dallas

Not one for the faint-hearted. A feat of modern engineering, the cantilever design of this hotel pool allows it to extend over the edge of the building in spectacular fashion. This 1920's Dallas building has been transformed by award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany into a modern masterpiece, combining old world quality with contemporary design.
