It’s time to let your imagination run wild and dream of those pools that are really out of this world. To help you on your way, we’ve chosen a few that we think are just the ticket.
Intercontinental Hong Kong
The backdrop is the dramatic Hong Kong skyline. The hotel is brimming with luxury elements overlooking Victor Harbour. Three pools are set atop the third floor spa deck. They are all set at different temperatures – cold, warm and hot. Just like the three little bears, you get to choose the water that’s just right as you soak up the amazing view.
San Anfonso Del Mar, Chile
It’s the largest swimming pool in the world measuring 3,000 feet in length and has a deep end that descends 115 feet. The pool interior is lined with the same Aqualux PVC membrane used in all Albatross Pools. Sitting at the magnificent seaside hotel it took 5 years to build and cost $1.6 billion. It has an annual maintenance bill of $3.2 million and contains more than 66 million gallons of water. The pool keeps a constant flow of fresh seawater into the pool and old water back out to the sea, using a filtration system to desalinate the seawater before it goes into the pool and clean the pool water before it goes back to the ocean.
Golden Nugget, Nevada Los Vegas
It probably goes down as the scariest of pools because it gives you the feeling of swimming with sharks. The pool wraps around a massive tank of marine life that cost around $30 million to build and includes a three tiered water slide that runs through the centre of the tank. However, don’t panic as there’s sheer glass between you and the sharks. It really is an amazing pool, but you’re in Vegas and anything can be astounding.
Rangali Island, the Maldives
Positioned as if on the edge of the Indian Ocean, is this brilliant infinity pool. It belongs to the Conrad Maldives Resort and Spa and is designed to dissolve the edges of the pool and make you feel like you’re floating on the ocean itself.
Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali
It’s here that swimmers get to make two amazing choices. You can overlook the valley from the swimming pool way up on high, or emerge yourself into the lower pool among the terraced gardens. Either way it’s an extraordinary swimming pool experience.
Uhmaid Bhawan Palace Zodiac Pool
When this stunning palace in northern India was finished in 1943, it was the largest residence in the world with 347 rooms. Later, part of the palace was commissioned into a lavish hotel. For those guests who are lucky enough to stay, they had access to the majestic Zodiac pool. The pool itself is situated deep beneath the palace and is covered in gold leaves with the twelve signs of the zodiac painted on the pool floor.
It’s wonderful to dream big. Whether it’s on a grand scale or something more modest, it’s good to talk to the team at Albatross Pools. Because they know how to turn your vision into reality.
