Whether you want to step straight from your suite or a safari into the water, check out our cool hotel pools.

PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi, Maldives

There are plenty of places to swim on this tiny island in the North Male Atoll – the Indian Ocean, your plunge pool, the enormous infinity pool – but the one pool you will want to immediately jump into is PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi’s Lonu Veyo. This salt-water floatation pool is perched out over the ocean at the end of a long jetty. Sit back and soak in the minerals or sit out on the edge and watch the sea life swim past through crystal clear water.

The Ritz Carlton Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Swimming in the sky. That’s what it feels like when you’re doing laps in the pool at this five star property. Not just another skyscraper swimming pool, the entire ceiling of the Ritz Carlton pool area’s is covered in LED screens. Bright blue skies and dramatic sunsets play out across the ceiling while you swim, so it won’t matter one bit when the Hong Kong smog sets in.
