There are few things in life more pleasurable than relaxing by a swimming pool soaking up the sun with a cold drink in hand. A day by the pool reinvigorates, rebalances and nourishes the soul. Here, we take a look at some gorgeous pools that are all in sensational settings across the world.
Hanging Gardens Ubud, Bali
Ubud is the cultural capital of Bali and is a wonderfully artful, creative and peaceful place. It’s also home to the stunning Hanging Gardens Hotel with its contoured pools that have been carved into the verdant landscape. The gently curved terraces neatly reflect the lush paddy fields that are plentiful on this exquisite Indonesian isle.
Oberoi Udaivilas, India
The Oberoi Udaivilas Hotel sits magnificently on its own private island in the western Indian state of Rajasthan. Guests arrive by private boat to be greeted by a terrifically turreted building with a gorgeous mosaic tiled pool that acts like a moat across one facade. Slipping from your secluded terrace into the cool waters has got to be the ultimate in holiday relaxation.
Katikies Hotel, Santorini, Greece
Set 300ft above the Aegean Sea and nestling in dramatic cliffs the white washed Katikies Hotel with its cubist cottages is the epitome of chic Greek. Its infinity pools have the most breathtaking views that overlook an astounding vista of volcanoes and shimmering skies. It’s so enchanting that even the goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, would be charmed.
Riad Yasmine – Marrakech
The Red City is without doubt a jewel in the crown of North Africa. It’s also home to the stunning Riad Yasmine, an oasis of blissful calm, in the bustling and vibrant Moroccan metropolis. The centre piece of this striking property is its fabulous pool with intricate mosaic tiles, gorgeous greenery and sumptuous cushions on which to recline. What better place to recharge before venturing out into the hustle, bustle and magic of Marrakech?
Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus
With 6 swimming pools, set against a mountain backdrop of the Dolomites, the Hubertus Hotel in the Tyrol in Italy sure takes some beating. Its Skypool stretches effortlessly into the mountainous landscape to create a water feature that blends harmoniously with the countryside. This is the place to soak up fresh mountain air in truly spectacular surroundings.
All of these pools are astonishingly individual with a huge amount of imagination going into their designs. That’s why we adore them because this is also our philosophy at RiniKini.
