SkyPark Infinity Pool , Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
Located on the SkyPark above Singapore’s most iconic hotel, Marina Bay Sands, this is the world’s largest rooftop pool. Offering stunning views of the city’s skyline, the infinity pool is at least three times the length of an Olympic swimming pool. As visitors swim toward the edge, they face an illusion that they’ll float into the skyline. It’s quite an adrenaline rush!

The Red Pool, The Library Koh Samui, Thailand
This blood-red pool is perhaps one of the most peculiar hotel pools on the list. Set against the backdrop of Koh Samui’s Chaweng Beach, the startling colour isn’t the result of using artificial dye. Rather, the mosaic tiles of orange, yellow and red make the brilliant spectacle that’s set among trees and an open-air library.

Coliseum Pool, Resort at Pelican Hill, Newport Beach, California
When not in Rome, you’ll want to check out the dazzling exhibition that is the Coliseum Pool. The gleaming blue bottom—created from 1.1 million hand-set, hand-cut glass mosaic tiles—shows a glimpse of the impressive attention to detail. Guests float in one of the largest circular pools in the world, holding 1.4 million litres of water, while taking in sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The pool’s vaulted arches, corniced columns and amphitheatre of terraced decks offer guests a taste of architecture from centuries past. The result is something that feels intimately rustic yet luxuriously grandiose.
