Let’s dive right into it, shall we?
These hotels have taken the concept of the swimming pool and turned them into the ultimate way to cool down.
Into The Deep
Y-40 Deep Joy, Hotel Millepini, Italy
Nestled in the Montegrotto Terme resort area near Venice is the world’s deepest swimming pool. The Y-40 is 42 metres deep and features underwater caves and swim throughs for divers to negotiate. The pool, which is filled with over four million litres of thermal water from local springs, also contains a viewing tunnel for guests to watch the divers in action.
Infinity And Beyond
Sands SkyPark Infinity Pool, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
Swimming on top of the world takes on a new meaning at Marina Bay Sands Singapore. Located on the 57th floor, the SkyPark Infinity Pool stretches 150 metres across and stands as one of the key roof top features of the hotel. In addition to offering guests an unforgettable experience, the Infinity Pool, which is the highest in the world, also doubles up as an impressive viewing platform with a sprawling view of the city.
San Alfonso del Mar, Algarrobo, Chile
Feast your eyes on the world’s largest swimming pool. How large you ask? Well, let’s just say guests can actually sail in it. The outdoor pool measures 1,013 metres in length and covers over eight hectares in space with a maximum depth of 35 metres. However, its size aside, the pool is also a technological marvel as it utilises a filtration system that uses water that’s actually pumped in from the Pacific Ocean before it’s filtered and treated and used in the pool.
Swim With The Fishes
The Tank, Golden Nugget, Las Vegas, U.S.A
The Golden Nugget Hotel in Las Vegas not only attracts high-rollers but fans of sea creatures as well. That’s mainly because the hotel houses an onsite aquarium with 300 species of marine life including sharks and rays and best of all there’s a slide that goes right through it. The Tank incorporates a three-storey waterslide in its design, which culminates in a drop through a transparent tube right through the tank itself.
Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali, Indonesia
The boutique hotel not only offers guests a peaceful retreat and views of terraced rice fields that overlook the Ayung River but also an extremely beautiful split-level infinity pool. The pool boasts a unique free-form bi-level design, which follows the undulating shape of the surrounding landscape with views of the dense jungle nearby. If you ever wondered what it’s like to swim amongst the trees, this pool comes pretty darn close.
