Top 5 Hotel Pools to Splash Out On

We love a #blessed moment online. So to help you out, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite pool views so you can humble brag to your friends on TikTok.

What’s our criteria? Well. It’s completely subjective and entirely based on how awesome the view is. But the pool has to be top notch too.

We’ve got a mix of hotel pools and rooms with pools. First up, we have...

Grace Hotel Santorini, Auberge Resorts Collection

Infinity pool overlooking the ocean

Greece is no stranger to stunning pools and equally breathtaking views. But the Grace Hotel is *particularly* noteworthy. You’re hugged by large cliffs to the left and far into the distance, as far as your eyes can see, you see sparkling blue seas and tiny Greecian islands.

Como Point Yamu, Phuket

Infinity pool set atop a cliff

View of the Andaman? Check. Large craggy islands in the distance? Check. We love their bold choice of cool, pale blue for the pool tiling. An unusual choice given that most hotels these days go for a darker shade.

Soneva Jani, Maldives

2 Bedroom Water Retreat with Slide

Uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean. Absolute bliss. But wait, there’s more. These guys have a freaking water slide that plonks you right into the ocean. We think Soneva Jani definitely deserves an extra 10 points for this.

Ps. John Legend and Chrissy Tiegen are also fans, and stayed at a massive water villa at Soneva Jani back in 2021.

Alila Ubud, Bali

Infinity pool overlooking thick jungle

Alila Ubud’s pool is Insta famous, and for good reason. The silvery green water shrouded in early morning mist is incredibly picturesque. With lush Balinese jungle surroundings, its the perfect place to sit back with a cocktail (or two) and just snooooooooze.

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Tanzania

Infinity pool overlooking the Serengeti

Pack your bags, kids. We’re going to Tanzania. What do we love about the Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti…the gorgeous lodge, the architecture, the lovely pool, the ELEPHANTS. While lazily doing a breaststroke in the pool, watch your neighbourhood elephants drink up at a nearby watering hole.
