12 Beautiful Upscale Hotel Pools

"12 Most Amazing Pools in the World"
BootsnAll Travel (February 23, 2009)

"It used to be that all you had to attract people to your hotel was build a pool. As tourists evolved, the pool was considered a must. Thus the indoor pool became a standard of luxury. Today, both of those types of pools are anything but impressive. It is this reason that many hotels are spending thousands, if not millions, on their pools in hopes of attracting customers. Check out some of these luxury hotel pools to see what we are talking about...."

That's the first of twelve pools mentioned. Each entry has a photo and a brief description. This one is called an "infinity pool." The last entry explains what "infinity pool" means: that the pool seems to "...drop into the sky."

What I appreciated most in this short article, besides the beautiful photos and short-but-adequate descriptions, was the brief look at the history and business aspect of hotel pools in the introduction.

The 12 featured pools are:
  1. Crown Towers Hotel in Taipa Island Macau
  2. Burj Al Arab in Dubai
  3. Golden Nugget Las Vegas
  4. Blue Lagoon Geothermal Resort in GrindavĂ­k, Iceland
  5. Begawan Giri Hotel in Ubud, Bali
  6. Mandarin Oriental in New York
  7. San Alfonso del Mar in Chile
  8. Four Seasons in Costa Rica
  9. Six Senses Hideaway in Zighy Bay, Oman
  10. Perivolas Luxury Hotel in Santorini
  11. Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas
  12. Hotel Villa Mahal in Turkey
