These are stunning pools, intimating pools that we can only dream about. Some of the most lucky of us may see them or even swim in them but what is certain is that we are all impressed by them, whether we see them in person or through the pictures taken by somebody else.

This is the Library pool and it can be seen in Koh Samui, Thailand. Its shape or size are actually not that impressive. What amazes everyone is the color of the water. It comes from a base of mosaic glass tiles in orange, yellow and blood red and the effect of the colors is intensified by the red mattresses that line the perimeter.

This is one of the most famous pools in the world. It’s a part of the Ubud Hanging Gardens Resort from Bali which is a luxury destination set in the middle of a land of volcanoes and forests. The hanging pool is perched on a gorge and it offers spectacular and breathtaking views of the amazing forest and the landscape surrounding the resort.

This pool even has a name. It’s called Nemo 33 and it’s the deepest pool in the world. It can be found in Belgium. The pool is 115 feet deep and it’s used for scuba diving courses. It’s a very ingenious way of allowing the students to learn how to dive without the dangers of the ocean and any unwanted and unsupervised adventures.{image by Eric Burgers}.

This is yet another pool that sets a world record. This time it’s because of its size. This is the largest pool in the world, the San Alfonso del Mar Seawater Pool from Chile. It’s filled with seawater. The pool is 3,323 feet long and it covers 20 acres. At its deepest point it goes down 11.5 feet. The pool is spectacular when seen from above and overwhelming when seen from up close.

Believe it or not, this pool is actually part of someone’s home. It’s part of a private residence built for a single person. The lap pool you see in the picture is located on the roof and it acts as the ceiling of the residence. The pool filters the sun light and allows it to illuminate the central area of the house. It’s an amazing image.
