The World’s Coolest Pools
An example of one of the World's Coolest Pools

When it comes to swimming pools, a typical in-ground or above-ground pool is sufficient for cooling down on a hot summer day. But sometimes people tend to go above and beyond with their swimming pools, creating incredible masterpieces. These works of art deserve some recognition, so here are the top ten most unique pools around the world!

The San Alfonso del Mar Seawater Pool

San Alfonso del Mar Pool

The Chilean San Alfonso del Mar Resort is home to the world’s largest pool. It spans over 20 acres and holds over 66 million gallons of water! It’s located along the coastline so while you’re taking a dip in the pool, you can enjoy the view of the ocean.

The Library

The Library Resort Pool

This resort in Koh Samui, Thailand, boasts an incredible swimming pool. Why is it so special? It was built using bright red, orange, and yellow tiles, making the pool water seem like it’s a deep red. When the sun sets, it’s said that the water looks like molten gold.

Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands Pool

Singapore is known for its skyscrapers and this resort does not disappoint. It is home to one of the world’s largest and highest rooftop infinity pools, hovering over 57 stories above the city. Hope you’re not afraid of heights!

Bondi Beach Pool

Bondi Beach Pool

Located in Australia, this swimming pool is so close to the ocean that the waves hit the side and splash into the pool. It’s open year round, even when it’s cold. In fact, the pool is home to the winter swimming club, the Bondi Icebergs. Becoming an Iceberg isn’t easy, as you must log 75 “off season”, aka cold water, swims.

Santorini Cave Pools

Santorini Cave Pools

The cave pools of Santorini are very unique. These little private pools are scattered throughout resorts across the island and provide spectacular views from the comfort of your hotel suite. 

Nemo 33

Nemo 33 was once the world’s deepest pool according to the Guinness Book of World Records; the most recent titleholder is Y-40 Deep Joy in Italy. Located in Belgium, Nemo 33 is 33 meters (over 100 feet!) deep, hence the name. Divers from all over the world come here 365 days a year.

Harbor Plaza Hotel Pool

This rooftop infinity pool is part of the Harbor Plaza Hotel in Hong Kong. Twenty-five stories up, it gives you incredible views of Victoria Harbor.

St. Regis Resort

Another oddly colored pool is the gold-tiled pool at the St. Regis Resort in Tibet. The glowing tiles, along with the lighting, makes it feel as though you’re swimming in liquid gold. 

Hanging Gardens

Bali is one of the most peaceful places in the world, especially when you’re relaxing in the Hanging Gardens. This swimming pool is suspended over the trees, giving you a one-of-a-kind view.

The Cambrian Hotel Pool

While it may look average, the infinity swimming pool at the Cambrian Hotel in the Swiss Alps has one of the most incredible views of the snow-capped mountains. Don’t worry, it’s heated!
