We all enjoy swimming in a beautiful pool, and the following are pools that are worth travelling to experience!
The Library, Koh Samui, Thailand
This spectacularly coloured pool is lined with mosaic tiles of blood red, orange and yellow. The red loungers around the pool add to the colour of the water and at night the lights are trained to highlight the effect of the tiling.
Pelican Hill, California, United States
This beautiful pool takes inspiration from the Roman Coliseum and is surrounded by an amphitheatre of terraces, arches and columns. The pool is lined with one million tiles and is an idyllic location to while away the day.
Huvafen Fushi, Maldives
This exquisitely lit pool was one of the first to use fibre optic technology to create an atmospheric pool in a beautiful location.
It adjoins the only salt water floatation pool in the Maldives, rich in minerals that have many healing effects.
Nandana Villa, Grand Bahama, Bahamas
An infinity pool that appears to join with the Atlantic, this pool is not cluttered with loungers but instead has just three carefully placed palm trees and is perfect for relaxation and enjoying the picturesque views.
The Standard, Los Angeles, United States
Twelve stories over the city, this turquoise water pool is surrounded by red Astroturf to give it a truly psychedelic appearance while swimmers overlook the city scape.
At night the pool becomes an entertainment area with a dance floor, open fireplace and bar.
Paresa Phuket, Thailand
This infinity pool overlooking the sea is populated by islands that provide the perfect secluded location for a romantic meal for two.
The sound of the waves and the starlight add the final touches to this unforgettable dining experience.

Sanctuary Swala, Tanzania
Overlooking a watering hole in Tarangire National Park, this pool gives views that cannot be seen from any other pool in the world! Watch elephants and rare kudu antelopes against the stunning backdrop of Africa’s dramatic baobab trees.
Enjoy this pool at sundown with a cocktail before retiring to your luxury cabin.
