Jump in the pool, jump in the pool–Friendly Fires, “Jump in the Pool” (2009)
Where are the best infinity pools?
Infinity pools are said to blur the line between natural and manmade. Online sources confirm that there are not many locations that present a more effective, beautiful contrast than the following hotel infinity pools. Here then, are the best infinity pools anywhere in the world:
Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Tanzania
This memorable infinity pool is situated in the center of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Teeming with wildlife, the area is frequented by herds of wild elephants on a daily basis. Other frequent guests from Africa’s animal kingdom include giraffes, wildebeests, and zebras. There’s even a bar!
The Resort at Pedregal, Mexico
Situated on the tip of the Baja California peninsula, guests are guaranteed great views of the country’s dreamy shorelines, Land’s End’s natural arches, and maybe even wave-riding dolphins and breaching humpback whales. Visit the swim-up bar and enjoy a tamarind margarita. Then kick back in one of the pool’s trademark half-submerged lounge chairs.
The St. Regis Princeville Resort, Hawaii
The multi-colored mountains, rough canyons, and skyscraping waterfalls of Kauai are reportedly best experienced via helicopter. At ground level, however, it’s difficult to top the infinity-edged, 5,000-square-foot swimming pool of The St. Regis which is practically part of the iconic scenery.
Cape Weligama, Sri Lanka
The all-villa Relais & Châteaux resort located on the southern coastline of Sri Lanka was slotted in on Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List when it first opened its doors two years ago. The resort has over half a dozen individual infinity pools placed across a span of 12 acres. The main pool, which is crescent-shaped, affords the best scenic views.
The Joule Hotel, Texas, U.S.
There are some noteworthy infinity pools that do not overlook a tropical vista. This artsy hotel has a translucent, cantilevered rooftop pool that overlooks Dallas. It’s so popular that by noon it is reportedly standing-room-only.
Zemi Beach House Resort & Spa, Anguilla
This unique location affords guests a chance to experience a memorable contrast of ultra-blues. The symmetric, sleek pool spills over the très-turquoise of Anguilla’s Shoal Bay East. At the far end of the pool is a glass wall that creates the prerequisite infinity edge illusion. Thus, the nearby beachcombers can actually peek at the pool’s underwater action.
