Like it? Pin it on Pinterest!

When you do a little summer daydreaming, where do you see yourself? Is it by the beach or by the pool?  I always picture myself by the pool with a cocktail in hand, soaking up the sun, while enjoying the cool breeze and relaxation. But it’s not just any pool in my day dreams – it’s a pool so incredible it makes you want to weep.

The Maldives, Thailand, Indonesia, the Caribbean – these locations are known for their beautiful beaches and their absolutely stunning hotel pools. So many places, so little time!

It’s nearing the end of summer, and that’s all the more reason to do some summer dreaming! When winter come to your city and the cold starts to seek in, you can book a stay at one of these hotels and find great weather, stunning views and an inviting pool to soak in year round. So what are you waiting for. Jump right in! The water’s fine.

I’ve put the information for each hotel after the photo so you can get in touch with them easily if you want to book or get more information. You can also book these hotels through Expedia.com.

Summer Dreaming: Stunning Hotel Pools

  1. Katja - globetotting says:

    I used to live in Bondi, Sydney and would swim in Icebergs at least three times a week. It was the BEST way to start the day!!

  2. Jeh-C says:

    I’ve always wanted to go to Singapore to swim in the Infinity Pool at the Marina Bay Sands but it looks like I have to add a few more of these pools to my list.

    • Laura Lynch says:

      I have too, Jeh-C. It’s been on my list for a while. What an incredible hotel. Everything about it is amazing.

  3. Claudia says:

    I like the one in Singapore and the one in Bondi Beach. I am a swimmer and that has clear lanes and a regular shape and it is easy to count how many laps one is swimming on that (I can also figure from the picture that it is 50 mt long). I’d love swimming in it.

  4. Anne | Girl Chasing Sunshine says:

    Infinity pools are the best– they are just so incredible and majestic! Among the photos you featured here, I love those from Bali and The Maldives!! 🙂

  5. Bobbi Gould says:

    Great list!! I’ve never been to any of these but know I’ll get there one day!!! The one in Miami looks like something in Italy. The best one I’ve been to is at the Hard Rock Puerto Vallarta.

  6. Meg Jerrard says:

    These are all AMAZING! Give me the Jade Mountain Resort in St. Lucia anytime! Gotta lve a good infinity pool – you really can’t beat it! Might have to start a new bucketlist just for hotel pools!

  7. bryan flake says:

    It has been a few times now that I have seen these hotel rooftop swimming pools. I think it is so fun looking, to see the pool and then the city skyline right beyond the pool’s boundaries. In a lot of ways, it is really relaxing to see the skyline as you relax in the pool.

  8. Uncover Your Caribbean says:

    We have been to Jade Mountain in St. Lucia and completely agree!! Scrub Island Resort, BVI is on our list.
    They all look awesome.

  9. Kristi Trimmer says:

    And now I have 20 new places I need to visit. Thanks for that!! How is it I haven’t been to any of these places with stellar pools? I need to change that fact.

  10. Phillius Thomas says:

    I like how a few of them have a camera angle on them that makes it look like the pool is connected to the ocean. Number six though, looks like it may actually be just part of the ocean. Did they just build a floor and small walls, then just let the ocean feed in and out of it while people are swimming.

  11. Sarah Anderson says:

    Number five is probably my favorite of these swimming pools, I should look into visiting there at some point. It could also be really cool to copy, or gain inspiration, from something like that. I would love to get a partially inside stone pool when I get my own house.

  12. Faylinn says:

    Whenever I need to get a hotel, I always get one that has a pool so that my kids can be entertained. However, I have never been to one that had a pool like the 20 that are listed here. I noticed that only one of these in the United States (the one in Hawaii), but all of them are near water. Do you know what it takes for a hotel not near the ocean to be great and to have a stunning pool?

  13. Nelson M. Castilloo says:

    Hey Laura

    Awesome job dear .The pool stuff you had gathered here is really amazing.I Personally got attracted toward number 14 . It is looking so calm and completely gives a soothing effect.I love to visit this place .Thanks for the share

    Regards
    Nelson
