Amazing infinity pools
When thinking about a holiday we like many others will trawl through the latest star ratings and reviews and spend hours debating the area, beds and balconies. However, there is usually one thing that for whatever reason, we can never judge by facts and figures, but by how much it makes us jump for joy inside. Cue, the infinity pool.
Obviously across the globe there many hotel who have cottoned on to the fact that a never ending crystal clear water edge combined with a view that makes your heart melt is a big selling point, but not all those who try succeed. They require specific, balanced structural and architectural detailing in order to create the illusion of infinity.
The perfect infinity pool must be a delicate combination of tranquility, view, calm and nature. A task that for some will never come to full light. However, there are some who have this rare combination down to the last drop, and boy, is it a selling point.
These are some of the most awe-inspiring, amazing infinity pools you will see. Imagine yourself gliding peacefully through the water, then resting your arms on an edge that will bring joy to your bones.
