Seven Amazing Infinity Pools: Float On the Edge of the World!

 

Infinity pools have become all the rage in the past decade in opulent homes and splendid resorts. The attraction seems to be that the illusion that the pool simply drifts off into space, threatening to shunt swimmers off the edge, and into a clean drop off the side of a skyscraper or hill top. Also known as zero-edge pools, these pools are incredibly beautiful although slightly unnerving. Here are seven particularly stunning infinity pools that will make you want to either transform your backyard or go out and buy your dream home.

 

The Cliff Hanger, Thailand

 

This uber-modern property in Thailand is perched on the very edge of a cliff, with a vast expansive view over the ocean. The pool gives the illusion of a continuous flow of water out onto the horizon. The remarkable design of the home was conceived by Original Vision, and optimises the panoramic views inside by segmenting the living spaces.

Ubud Hanging Gardens Hotel, Bali

 

This is the ultimate infinity pool, with multilevel walls of water that descend down in a natural way, in homage to the surrounding natural environment. This magnificent hotel in Bali also has 38 guest rooms, each with their own mini infinity pool and serene views onto the nearby Buddhist temple, Pura Penataran Dalem Segara. It’s the perfect sanctuary for a little R&R or a romantic honeymoon.

The Mumbai Mansion

 

This amazing house sits on the peak of a hill overlooking the sea and the bustling city of Mumbai below. The rooftop deck has a gorgeous wrap-around infinity pool that enlivens the modern feel of this geometric house. Although the property is a total iconoclast; it’s a testament to the owner’s passion for unusual design. The elevated position of the pool would appear to swimmers as an endless continuation of the sky.

Hotel Caruso, Italy

 

The Amalfi coast in Italy needs no introduction for luxury travellers. The area is renowned for its jagged white cliffs and quaint villages overlooking the sparkling blue Mediterranean. At the Hotel Caruso on the Amalfi Coast, guests can enjoy a splendid old hotel that’s been around since the 11th century. The hotel is a former palazzo and contains all of the modern comforts that one would expect from a five star establishment. This includes a heated infinity pool that overlooks the clifftop approximately 1,000 feet above sea level. It’s quite a spectacular view from up there we would imagine!

Hemeroscopium House Rooftop Infinity Pool

 

A completely stark and dramatic architectural wonder, the Hemeroscopium House has unusual touches that make it completely unique. There’s a conventional swimming pool on the ground however there’s also a rooftop infinity pool that cantilevers over the grass. The prefabricated concrete home is built on three enormous I-beams and two steel girders. Taking just a week to assemble the entire property, it could be likened to a monstrous freeway overpass. Although strange, you can’t deny that the home is an iconoclast.
