It takes a very special swimming pool to distract from the amazing sights you’ve travelled hundreds of miles to see.

From infinity pools in the treetops of a jungle, to a pool perched on top of a Singapore skyscraper, here is our top 10 list of pools that do just that.

1. The Joule Hotel, Dallas, USA

Hanging over the edge 10 storeys high this may not be the most relaxing pool in the world (but the view’s great).

2. San Alfonso del Mar, Chile

Head straight to the coast from Santiago and you’ll find the world’s largest pool (76,890 sqm). You can’t miss it.

3. Golden Nugget Hotel, Las Vegas

Swimming pool. Sharks. Luckily there’s a thick slab of glass between you and them. Thrilling.

4. Hotel Caruso Belvedere, Italy

It’s cold out there, very cold. But in the geothermally heated outdoor pool it’s blissfully warm.

  1. The Marina Sands in Singapore looks absolutely amazing. That is the height of luxury and a once in a lifetime view. Like you say not very good for those scared of heights though.
