Some of the world’s most beautiful and unusual pools

These are pools that are scattered throughout the globe and that are extremely beautiful either because of their location, design, shape or all of the above. 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.

The first pool we want to show you is indeed spectacular. It’s a cliff-top infinity pool that seems to be floating in space. It’s a mirific image and it can be admired in Alila Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia where 84 splendid villas are awaiting their guests.

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 pool is part of the Joule Hotel from Dallas. The structure used to be the Dallas National Bank Building after which it was bought and turned into this spectacular hotel. The pools is simply extruding out of one of the hotel’s balconies which is not only odd with very original and unique.{image by Diorama Sky}.

This splendid pool can be found at the Nandana Villa in Grand Bahama, Bahamas. It seems to drop straight into the Atlantic and has a very beautiful design. The pool impresses with its minimalism that is, as the same time, dramatic. It’s the focal point of the property and it’s very serene and refreshing, not to mention spectacular.

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. It’s almost terrifyingly beautiful to be there.

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.
