Hotels With Stunning Swimming Pools
For many of us a luxury holiday is something we may only do once or twice every decade, and rightly so. Flights, hotels and other expenses can soon add up to a staggering amount, so while it’s nice to splash out one a little luxury, it’s important to make the right choices in regards to destination and accommodation.
Luxury hotels are an amazing place to spend a few days of the year and the facilities on offer by many luxury hotels are amazing. Their plan is to encourage clients to use the facilities in the hotel to maximise their profits, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
One of the larger, more luxurious facilities offered by many hotels is the spa and pool area. A place where guests are encouraged to be pampered, relax, unwind and leave feeling refreshed. Today hotels need something a bit more special than just a standard pool and guests expect swimming pools to be something of a spectacle in the expensive and luxurious hotels throughout the world. So with the stakes raised and hotels spending massive amount of money on fantastic facilities, here is me list of some of the world best.

The magnificent infinity pool at the Perivolas in Greece is perhaps one of the most photographed pools in the world. Looking out over the Aegean this lipless pool offers some staggering views throughout the day and especially into the evening.
The swimming pool forms the central part of the hotel and is its main selling point offering views across the bay where many cruise ships moor to take advantage of one of the most spectacular sunsets in the world.
