We are all about adding things to do on our bucket list here at Luxsphere. Lounging by the pool or taking a dip isn’t exactly bucket list worthy BUT when the hotels have spectacular pools like these its just hard to resist. There is everything from a gold pool to red pool to a floating pool.
Where: Längenfeld, Austria
Aqua Dome in Längenfeld Austria is set against the dramatic shadows of the Ötztal Alps. Saying this outdoor thermal pool is huge is an understatement. Every day almost 80,000 litres of thermally heated spring water flows into the eight pools of Aqua Dome. Just have a look at the pictures below if you don’t believe us.
At the heart is a crystal shaped dome, which is the home to two large thermal baths containing sulphur mineral water – great for a healthy dip! Around the dome are three outdoor pools which look like they are floating in the air. Taking a dip in this impressive pool and being amongst the mountains is a surreal experience in itself but the magic happens at night when the glass dome and the surrounding pools light up. There’s also underwater music and whirlpools. To make the most of these unique pools Aqua Dome offers moonlit bathing sessions every Friday.
Where: Tremezzo, Lake Como
Grand Hotel Tremezzo in Lake Como has one of the dreamiest pools! This pool is pure heaven on earth as it floats on the sparkling waters of Lake Como overlooking Bellagio. Sit back and relax in the pool as you take in the view of the mountains while the sun glistens on the lake but keep an eye out you may end up bumping into some locals like George Clooney.
Where: Bali, Indonesia
Set right in the heart of the Balinese jungle is the Hanging Gardens Hotel in Ubud, Bali. True to its name the pool at the Hanging Gardens Bali allows you to immerse in nature. It is designed in such a way that it suspends over the dense rainforest, making you feel like you are floating over the treetops. No wonder it is one of the most photographed pools in the world.
Where: Hong Kong, China
Hong Kong has one of the most impressive skylines in the world. The best way to enjoy this view is from the epic infinity pool at Intercontinental Hong Kong. There are 3 different infinity pool all maintained at different temperatures. Being in this infinity pool will make you feel like you are floating on the Victoria Harbour. If you are looking to enjoy the Symphony of Lights show in Hong Kong there is no better way to do so than from the infinity pool at Intercontinental.
Where: Lhasa, China
Gold energy pool – yes, that’s right GOLD POOL! St. Regis Lhasa in China has the worlds bling-est pool. This ultra luxurious pool is lined with gold plated tiles. The pool contains therapeutic salt water that is constantly heated to 26-28℃. Now you can actually tick off swimming in a gold pool from your bucket list.
Titled as the world’s longest infinity pool, Marina Bay Sands is not for the faint-hearted. Located on the 57th floor, you will get a jaw-dropping view of Singapore as you take a dip in this 500-foot long pool. Get your cameras at the ready as you will not want to miss snapping this up.
Where: Koh Samui, Thailand
The Library Hotel in Koh Samui Thailand offers one of the most unique pools in the world. Going beyond your expectations of a pool they are offering a pool that is red in colour. Don’t worry this blood-red colour is only due to the red tiles. It is set right on the pristine beach of Koh Samui, the contract between the azure surroundings and the bright red pool is really something to see.
The pool at Hotel Villa Honegg has been dubbed as the ‘Stairways to Heaven Pool’ and it really is just that. This L shaped pool gets its name due to the panoramic views of surrounding mountains and Lake Lucerne below. The view isn’t the only great thing, the pool itself is heated to a perfect temperature throughout the year and also has a large circular whirlpool which can be turned on by the touch of a button.
Not only is this pool spectacular in the daytime with the backdrop of mountains and lake. It is equally awe-inspiring at night under the moonlight and the underwater lighting.
Any spa that offers overwater treatments is hands-down the best. Taking the spa experience to another level is Velassaru with their hydro pool. This one of a kind freshwater pool not only offers views of the turquoise lagoon but it is actually nestled right into it. You can say it is a pool in the ocean.
