The 5 Most Amazing Hotel Pools in the World

story by: Jo Wedlock

While most of us Kiwis think a great hotel pool has a swim up bar, and maybe a kids slide or a waterfall to make it special, some of the greatest pools in the world will really blow your mind.

Forget Horizon pools, swim-up bars, and ‘tube slides’ and think of the most mind blowing experiences you can imagine.  From Dolphins in fountains to water park complexes, here are the top five in our opinion.  Before you jump in and book however, make sure you speak to one of our House of Travel specialists to share what you are looking for in a holiday and they can help ensure you are booking the best holiday to suit you.

San Alfonso del Mar, Algarrobo, Chile
This private resort in Algarrobo, Chile, boasts the world's largest and deepest swimming pool. It covers 19 acres and holds 66 million gallons of seawater.

Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali
The Ubud Hanging Gardens resort - accessed via a private aerial ropeway - has several pools extending over multiple levels while each room has access to its own private pool. It’s like swimming at the top of the trees of a rainforest!

Library Hotel, Koh Samui, Thailand
While this hotel and pool is amazing, more remarkable than the views from the Library Hotel's pool is the colour of the water. It usually sits at a bright scarlet red, but is known to sporadically changes colour.

Adler Dolomiti Spa and Sport Resort, Italy
This five-star resort in the middle of the Dolomites features a 35°C saltwater pool, a large outside swimming area and a hot whirlpool with a panoramic view of the Alps – breathtaking!

San Jose del Cabo, Mexico
This rooftop sanctuary at El Ganzo, recently opened a 72-room boutique hotel in San Jose del Cabo. Featuring a 2,013-square-foot infinity edge pool with a glass-walled hot tub, the terrace also has an intimate sushi restaurant, Balinese daybeds, and an indy music mix, some of it recorded in the hotel's subterranean studio.  It’s like a modern Mexico dream hotel and pool!
