Fancy a Dip! The Best of the Best….

We have our very own favourite, favourite swimming pool and you will agree that it takes some beating in the ‘best pool in the world’ stakes!!

But as the Devil’s Pool on Livingstone Island is currently closed due to high water levels at Victoria Falls I have gone on a hunt for other spectacular swimming pools around the world.

Crystal Lagoon at San Alfonso del Mar Resort, Chile

The Guiness Book of World Records says this is the largest pool in the world (it is quite large enough to sail boats on), swimming from one side to the other is the equivalent of 20 Olympic-size swimming pools
It is also particularly lovely due to the fact that the special filter system fills it with 297 million litres of Pacific seawater and then the sun warms it to a balmy 26oC. If hanging around on the surface is not your idea of fun you could also dive here – to a depth of 35 metres (another world record)

- The Citystars Sharm El Sheikh development will create an even larger lagoon… so the Crystal Lagoon will officially lose its World Record title when the new pool opens.

The 24th floor pool in Shanghai Pudong Kangqiao Holiday Inn, PRC

From the inside it looks like this:

From the outside it looks like this:

 

The Nemo 33 in Brussels, Belgium

The largest indoor pool in the world goes down 34 metres and divers will have a bunch of caves to explore as well as windows at various depths for the curious to enjoy your diving skills!

The Marina Bay Sands Resort in Singapore

This hotel has a 150 metre long infinity pool set on the world’s largest public cantilevered form ensuring fabulous views of the city.


Blue Lagoon Geothermal Resort in Grindavík, Iceland

Find your inner peace in six million litres of geothermal seawater that is renewed every 40 hours and has a temperature that fluctuates between 37 and 39oC!
