2. Singita Serengeti House, Tanzania
Safari holidays often involve getting up early in order to try and spot the animals, but at this luxury villa stay in the Grumeti Reserve, you can see wildlife including zebras and elephant right from the outdoor pool.
(Although the luxury resort does also offer traditional game drives, as well as other perks such as yoga sessions on the deck).

The waters are heated at a glorious temperature of 34ºC so you can don’t have to miss out on the phenomenal backdrop and the fresh air, no matter what season you’re visiting.
4. The Edge Resort, Bali
One for the thrill-seekers, this pool juts out over the edge of a 500ft cliff AND has a glass bottom so you can see below as you swim.
Of course, if you do dare look down as you swim, there are some incredible views that await – but it’s definitely not one for the faint-hearted!
5. TWA Hotel, USA
Aviation fans may want to book in for a night’s stay at New York’s JFK airport hotel, which boasts an infinity pool which directly overlooks the working runway.
So basically, heaps of opportunity for plane spotting.

6. The Hanging Gardens of Bali, Bali
You’ll be fully immersed in the spectacular jungle surroundings at this Bali retreat, where the infinity pool juts out into the breathtaking landscape.
The perfect serene spot for unwinding, listening to the jungle sounds and taking a dip.

7. Fairmont Maldives, The Maldives
One of our picks of the coolest experiences in the Maldives, the Fairmont has 200 yards of infinity pools, meaning guests never struggle to bag a sun lounger in a prime spot.
One of the pools sits directly above the white sand beaches and looks out onto those crystalline waters – major social media fodder.
8. Villa Amanzi, Thailand
This luxurious villa in Phuket boasts six bedrooms, an enviable clifftop location and even a hot tub, but the major highlight has to be the villa’s 15-metre ‘floating’ pool, which stretches out over the cliffs and looks directly over the ocean.
We’re dreaming of a holiday here with our loved ones when travel re-opens again!
9. Alila Villas Uluwatu, Bali
This five-star resort in Bali has luxurious villas with incredible views, butler service and swanky interiors, but guests are always drawn to the fabulous infinity pool that seemingly stretches out over the horizon.
Oh, and for those looking for a workout, guests can take part in stand up paddleboard yoga in the mornings to get the most of the views.
10. The Joule Hotel, USA
This pool at the hotel in downtown Dallas may look ordinary, but it actually has an eight-foot cantilevered pool so guests can swim out beyond the hotels edge and gaze down at the hustle and bustle of the city below.
Not one for the faint-hearted – although if you want to check it out, you’ll need to be a guest at the hotel.
