From glass bottomed pools to amazing views…stay tuned to number 1 to see the most insanely
cool swimming pools in the world!
Number 10: Glass Bottomed Sky Pool.
Imagine swimming in a pool with the bottom made of glass.
It would be awesome, right?
You could see everything below the pool, and it would give you a nice optical illusion
like you’re flying, or something like that.
Now imagine that the glass-bottomed pool was high up in the air.
Like, at the top of a building?
Well, that would be both exciting and frightening!
And this is not just an idea…the actual pool exists.
In the city of Houston, Texas there is a luxury apartment complex called Market Square Tower,
and on top of the building is a swimming pool.
The pool is mostly on the deck of the roof, itself, but a small section hangs a bit over
the edge…and it has a glass bottom, so that the swimmers can admire the view while enjoying
This is unfortunately a private pool, so the public doesn’t have access to it, but if you
happen to meet someone who lives there, you might get a chance to experience swimming
in this pool yourself!
Number 9: Marina Bay Sands.
One of the newest trends in luxury hotels in the concept of so-called “infinity pools.”
But before we talk about this one, we’d really appreciate it if you’d take a moment to subscribe
to our channel!

Like this video!!
Infinity pools are called that way because they give you the illusion that there is no
end to your swimming…you don’t see the edge of the pool right in front of you, because
the water rolls over in such a way that it creates an illusion that it merges into the
landscape, be it the sea, the view of the city, etc.
And one of the most amazing infinity pools in the world is definitely the one in Marina
Bay Sands hotel in Singapore.
What makes this infinity pools unique is that it’s much bigger than other pools of its kind…and
it’s located 57 floors above the ground.
Hotel guests can enjoy lying around in their sunbeds, with the wide infinity pools in front
of them, and a breathtaking view of the city ahead.
It’s really one of the best hotel views money can buy.
A real gem in Singapore’s crown!
Number 8: The Shark Tank With all of the fierce competition between
hotels, trying to win business, all of the hotels are competing for your dollar.
This is especially true in Las Vegas…the entertainment capital of the world.
The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino realized the importance of exquisite hotel features…and
they came up with something pretty wild: swimming with sharks!
No, don’t worry, you’re not actually swimming with the sharks, like in a James Bond movie,
but it’s pretty close to that.
To its guests, The Golden Nugget offers a pool called “The Tank” and, in the middle
of the pool, there is a 200,000 gallon shark tank aquarium.
But here’s the best part…you don’t simply get a chance to swim in the pool and watch
the sharks from afar, while they’re prowling in the water.
The experience is much more intense than that because there is a special, built-in waterslide.
So, you can rush down the waterslide and literally be a couple of feet away from the sharks…they
are right next to you!
Now, that’s really something.
Number 7: Swimming Pool “Bridge.”
In our first entry, we talked about a swimming pool that goes just a little over the edge
of the building.
But, imagine a swimming pool that goes all the way from one building to the other.
Yes, this really exists.
Okay, so…it will exist.
The so-called “Sky Pool” is located in London, and it’s been dubbed the world’s first pool
with a transparent bottom…of that kind.
115 feet in the air, and 82 feet in length, Sky Pool is a true feat of engineering.
The engineer behind the project is the company Eckersley O’Callaghan, which worked with Apple,
helping design their unique Apple stores around the world.
Sky Pool will be part of the property development called Embassy Gardens, and the plan is to
complete it by the summer of 2019, although there are still some minor difficulties.
The pool has to be placed literally between two buildings, both of which will “pull it,”
in different directions.
So, this has to be taken into consideration.
Also, both buildings are slightly affected by the wind, which also may come a minor problem
in figuring everything out.
But the engineers are working hard in order to turn this project into a reality.
Let’s hope they pull it off!
Number 6: The Hanging Gardens of Bali.
Yes, the name sure sounds mythical and magical, and rightly so.
If you want an exotic location with breathtaking scenery and a gorgeous pool to top it off,
look no further.
Near Parayan, a village north of the city of Ubud in Bali, there is a luxurious destination
called the Hanging Gardens of Bali.
This award-winning resort overlooks the ancient temple of Dalem Segara and the Ayung River,
and it stands right next to a beautiful valley, offering its guests so many things to experience
The nature is gorgeous, the spa treatments are luxurious, but what really stands out
is the Twin-Tiered Cascading Pool, an absolute must-see.
This swimming pool has been named “the world’s best swimming pool’ by many travel websites,
and it always shows up in the brochures and travel offers for the Hanging Gardens of Bali.
The way it’s designed, with the two levels overlooking the dense forest ahead and the
beautiful nature of the whole region, gives the Twin-Tiered Cascading Pool that little
extra, taking it to a level above the rest.
Number 5: Jade Mountain Pool.
When you hear the world Caribbean, probably the first synonym that comes to your mind
The Caribbean islands really have a unique appeal, and some of the best hotels and tourist
attractions are to be found in this part of the world.
And the island of Saint Lucia is no exception to the rule; this is the place of Jade Mountain,
a fantastic resort with so much to offer.
You can enjoy yourself on the hotel’s private beach, or experience all the wonderful things
its spa treatment has to offer.
Each room in the hotel has a fantastic view, which means that the good time is guaranteed.
But what really makes this hotel resort stand out is its swimming pool.
It doesn’t have a weird design, it doesn’t stretch across acres of land…but it has
a fantastic location, overlooking the sea and the surrounding mountains.
It’s elevated a bit, in the style of infinity pools, and…if you swim toward the edges,
you will have a feeling like you’re flying towards the sea.
A unique feeling.
The pool’s tiles are very colorful, and they create a beautiful visual effect, combined
with the sunshine and the water.
Number 4: Belmond Caruso Pool.
Ahhh, Ravello, Italy…well, what’s not to love in Italy?
The country has everything: great wines, amazing culture, fantastic cuisine, beautiful women,
and astounding landscapes.
Yup, if you want to have a good time, go to Italy, because it really covers all the bases.
But Italy wouldn’t be as great were it not for its hotels; Italy has some of the best
hotels in the world…one of which is Belmond Hotel Caruso.
Located on the coast of Amalfi, a small town in the province of Salerno, the hotel offers
one of the most amazing sea views in all of Italy.
Its offer is very, very rich…with terraced gardens, luxurious rooms, and suites with
But it also has one of the best swimming pools any Italian hotel has to offer.
It’s done in the infinity pool style, but, because of the hotel’s altitude, it looks
like you’re floating in the air.
Even when you’re by the pool, not in it, it creates an illusion of flying.
But, when you’re in the swimming pool, the feeling is simply indescribable.
Number 3: Crocosaurus Cove Pool.
If your idea of a good time is swimming with crocodile, lets do this!
Again, this is not really swimming with the beasts, but it’s definitely pretty close.
This type of fun is especially designed for those who want an adrenaline rush in their
The Crocosaurus Cove pool offers a lot of fun for those who adore crocodiles and have
a sense of adventure.
Here, you can find over 200 species of crocodiles, literally all kinds!
But the best part is that you’re allowed to go into swimming pools and be very near the
Every day, there are 12 “dips,” from 9:30 AM to 5PM, when you enter a protected cage
and go down into the croc-infested swimming pool.
The cage is not that small, as it can carry up to two people.
It’s transparent, made of special material, and it allows you to look at the crocodiles
and admire them up-close.
If this is your thing, don’t wait…the swimming pool at the Croc Cove is waiting.
Enjoy yourself; just be sure to stay within the confines of the glass cage.
It’s not your regular swimming pool, you know?
Number 2: Pamukkale Thermal Pools.
Yes, there are many man-made swimming pools that are absolutely stunning, but what about
the pools mother nature created for us?
We haven’t mentioned any of those, yet, so here it is…one of the best natural pools
in the world: the Pamukkale Thermal.
If you haven’t heard of it, even better, because you’re in for a treat.
Pamukkale (which in Turkish means “cotton castle”) is one of the most amazing natural
wonders in the country.
It is a series of open-air swimming pools and spa baths, characterized by their sparkling
turquoise color; made such because of travertine sedimentary rocks, which give it that special
If you look at some of the pictures or postcards of Pamukkale, you’d think that the place is
covered in snow, because it’s all white, but no…it’s just the way these rocks are.
The pools come in all shapes and sizes, and their water is extremely beneficial.
You’re not only enjoying yourself, but also working on your health.
The entrance fee is less than $20 per person, and you can enjoy all the splendors the swimming
pools of Pamukkale have to offer.
Number 1: Nemo 33.
Why have we chosen this as number one on our list?
Because…it’s completely bonkers!
It’s weird, and amazing at the same time.
But this is a special kind of swimming pool, as it’s designed for deep-sea divers.
During the 90s, John Beernaerts, who’s a deep-sea diver, wanted to create something for other
diving enthusiasts, because he saw one major flaw in the whole preparation system for divers…at
the time, there were no real, specialized pools of this kind.
Divers used to practice in shallow pools in the city of Brussels, but that simply wasn’t
John knew, experienced as he was, that there is a big difference between diving in a basic
pool versus a lagoon of an underwater cave.
That’s why he wanted to bring the real deep-sea diving experience right to Brussels…so he
made Nemo 33.
This is the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world, and it has everything.
From simulated caves to its many platforms, mimicking those of underwater rocks and lagoons.
But the most amazing thing is the 33-meter cylindrical pit.
Nemo 33 is great for those who are just getting started, but it’s also a great place for experienced
divers who simply want to practice.
And, if you’re not into deep-sea diving, we suggest you take a swim in one of the previous
entries on the list!
