Make Yourself Proud from 11 Hotel Infinity Pools You Will Be Dreaming About Forever
11 Hotel Infinity Pools You Will Be Dreaming About Forever
Wildflower Hall, Shimla in the Himalayas – An Oberoi Resort, India
Set amid 22 acres of pine and cedar trees at the foot of the Himalayas, this Oberoi resort is all about communing with nature. Walk through the forest, raft down the river, bike through the mountains, practice yoga and meditation, or just lie back in the infinity pool (and hot tub), gaping at the insanely stunning mountain range around you.
Hanging Gardens Ubud, Bali
The name of this hotel is apt: it sits on a 45-degree slope overlooking Ubud’s dense jungle. The infinity pool is possibly the most famous aspect of the entire place, and rightly so. It’s a duplex with a waterfall between the two levels, and has a flowing free-form shape that echoes the area’s rice paddies, as it juts into the surrounding greenery. Not special enough? Book the Romance Under the Stars dinner experience and dine on a floating antique wooden deck on the lower pool.
The St. Regis Princeville Resort, Kauai, Hawaii
The whole point of an infinity pool is to make the barrier between manmade pool and mother nature disappear — the illusion works well at the St. Regis Princeville, where the 5,000-foot swim spot is surrounded by tropical greenery and seems to blend right into Hanalei Bay. Plus, when the water is still (a rare treat since the pool is open 24 hours), you can see Makana Mountain in its reflection.
