2. Laucala Island Resort in Fiji
Fiji's Laucala Island Resort has some pool-ception going on, thanks to its above-ground pool that's located inside a lagoon-like pool.
3. Marina Bay Sands Resort in Singapore
This hotel's rooftop Infinity Pool overlooks the city's skyline from 57 stories up. Talk about an Instagram-worthy view.
4. Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada
5. Huvafen Fushi Resort in the Maldives
The ocean surrounding the Maldives is already a beautiful place to swim, but this pool has twinkling lights installed at the bottom. Now you can swim under (and over) the stars.
6. The Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti in Tanzania
Wade in the pool while elephants stop by the adjacent watering hole. Then cross this off your bucket list.
7. The Joule Hotel in Dallas, Texas
Pool Party. On the roof. In December? Yes, it's possible. ......... Starting November 1 through the winter months, The Joule is tenting this unique tenth-floor event space and adding an acrylic dance floor over the pool. Your holiday party just got better. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and to book the space! #TheJoule #DallasEventSpace #HolidayParty #PartyVenue #ThePool
This pool sticks eight feet out of the side of the building, so those with a fear of heights beware.
8. LeCrans Hotel & Spa in Switzerland
This heated outdoor pool embodies the meaning of après ski.
9. Nemo 33 in Belgium
Okay, this one isn't exactly relaxing, but it is cool. Nemo 33 is the deepest indoor swimming pool, extending 113 feet down.
10. Grand Hotel Tremezzo in Italy
The Grand Hotel Tremezzo has a pool located in Lake Como so you can swim in the lake without swimming in the lake. Get it?
11. Bondi Baths in Australia
The only public pool on our list, this one is a must-visit. Located on happening Bondi Beach, this pool is right on the water, which means that swimmers frequently experience the swell from the ocean.
