Top 10 Hotel Swimming Pool Views
From Travel and Leisure
With Spring Break upon us, it is time to think about a warm destination for the family vacation. One of the essential amenities for any vacation is a hotel or resort swimming pool. While you are soaking in the sun’s healing rays and working on your tan, why shouldn’t you avail yourself of the most breathtaking view from the hotel or from the hotel swimming pool? This article from Travel and Leisure gives you the top ten Hotel Swimming Pool views from around the world. Happy Spring Break!
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Built in 1870, the cliff-edge saltwater swimming pool of the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc in the south of France has been the centerpiece of that fabled celebrity resort for more than 80 years. Clark Gable bronzed himself on its sun beds; Brigitte Bardot made waves in her bikini; Egypt’s King Farouk liked to throw in his eight wives.
But what really makes this pool so legendary is its view: an overflow seawater pool blasted into seaside bedrock with a panoramic view out over the glamorous south of France Mediterranean.
Just as it’s an unwritten rule of a house party that everyone will end up in the kitchen, it’s guaranteed that guests at a hotel resort will spend most of their time around the swimming pool—even if there’s a fine beach and warm stretch of ocean to swim in right nearby. And that’s especially true when the pool is dripping with scenery.
Yet these days it’s not enough to simply have a rectangular hole of water in the ground surrounded by a few palms and deck chairs. Swimming pools are more spectacular than ever, and they not only have to look incredible (Eden-Roc’s vintage pool was redesigned in sleek infinity-edge style); they have to have great views too.
