Best Pool Views on the Planet

If you love to indulge in some serious relaxation when you’re travelling, and can think of nothing better than splashing around in a gorgeous pool with magnificent views, then we’re here to help. Read on for our round-up of the best pool views around the world.

 

Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc, France

 

The infinity pool at the iconic Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc just outside of Cannes, on the glittering French Riviera, is one not to be missed. It has been constructed in rugged, natural cliffs and guests can enjoy floating around in the salt-water, which is conveniently heated on cooler days. After you’ve enjoyed a refreshing dip you can dry off on the terrace, whilst cocktail waiters serve you a little libation.

 

The Standard Downtown, Los Angeles, USA

 

The L-shaped pool on the rooftop of The Standard Downtown hotel in L.A. offers panoramic views of the city skyline, making it a rather special experience. There are also vibrating waterbeds, cabanas and even a cocktail lounge on the same level. Throughout the year, movies are projected onto the giant wall of a neighbouring building, meaning you can cool off whilst watching your favourite films.

 

The Grace, Santorini, Greece

 

The Grace Hotel is often referred to as ‘the ultimate luxury hotel in Santorini’ and is perched high above the caldera, with stunning views from each of the rooms. None are more spectacular than the views from the infinity pool – the largest of its kind on the island – which offers bathers uninterrupted views of the coastline, sea and neighbouring islands.

 

The Berkeley, Knightsbridge, London

 

On a list entitled ‘Best Pool Views on The Planet’, an inclusion in the notoriously rainy city of London probably wasn’t expected. However, the rooftop pool at The Berkeley hotel is certainly worthy of a mention. The hotel has a retractable roof that opens up on rare sunny days above a heated lap pool surrounded by Roman-style pillars and arches. From the rooftop guests can look out over the lush green expanse of Hyde Park.

 

Villa D’Este, Lake Como, Italy

As far as hotel settings go, it doesn’t get much better than romantic 16th century Villa D’Este on the shores of Lake Como. The addition of the floating pool and hot tub built into a pontoon at the edge of the Lake simply makes it all the more appealing. Do some lengths in the shadow of the mountain slopes and admire the beauty of the 28-mile long lake around you.
