8 Awesome Infinity Pools Around the World
Infinity pools are probably the most spectacular type of pool, with designs that may differ but that have at the base the same concept. An infinity pool can also be called a negative pool, zero edge, disappearing edge or vanishing edge pool. This is because it creates the effect of water extending to the horizon or, as its name suggests, to infinity.
The infinity pool from the Golden Triangle Resort (Thailand) has beautiful mosaic details that create harmony with nature.
There are locations where these pools are particularly spectacular. For example, they create an even more impressive effect when they appear to merge with a larger body of water such as the sea or the ocean. They seem to become a part of the whole and give you the impression of swimming in the whole ocean. In other cases, the pool appears to extend to the sky, also creating a very impressive effect. It’s the case of those pools situated on the edge of a cliff.
The one at Murni’s Villa (Bali) is surrounded by vegetation and resembles a beautiful oasis in the middle of the untouched nature.
The sky is reflected in the pool from Kandalama Hotel (Sri Lanka) and the two seem to connect and to become one and the same.
The views from the infinity pool at the Alila Ubud Hotel (Bali) are spectacular, with nature revealing its beauty in front of you.
The exotic pool from Sheraton Waikiki (Hawaii) unifies with the ocean and sky and the barrier between the two is hard to distinguish.
On Rangali Island (Maldives) the barrier between the pool and the ocean is almost invisible and transparency and harmony take over.
The Divi Little Bay Beach Resort (St. Maarten) also has a pool that extends to the horizon and forms a canal.
The pool from the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino (Singapore) offers panoramic views of the city and its amazing skyline.
Infinity pools are often chosen to be part of the design or resorts or exclusive estates. As you may imagine, building an infinity pool is not easy. The costs are high and mechanic, structural and architectural elements are extensive and challenging. This is one of the main reasons why infinity edge pools are so rare and this is also the detail that makes them so special and so spectacular. To truly appreciate their grandeur you must take a look at some of the most amazing infinity pools around the world.
