Swimming pools are often regarded as everyone’s favourite aspect of a pleasant holiday. It cools you down, provides exercise, and allows you to flaunt that poolside figure you worked on for two days in January. Don’t worry; no one actually keeps their New Year’s resolutions.

This rooftop swimming pool, dubbed a “infinity pool,” goes almost all the way to the building’s edge. I mean, there’s a razor-thin edge for safety reasons, but you could pretty much swim yourself to death. However, it offers the finest poolside view in the world! The pool appears to flow into the ocean below, therefore the name “infinity” pool.

They didn’t make up the name, to be sure. It’s a swimming pool in the sky. It’s suspended 115 feet above the ground and has a glass bottom, so you can always see how far down you’re falling. Not for vertigo sufferers!

This pool is situated in the midst of a lush woodland. While the pool itself isn’t particularly exciting, the breathtaking view will provide plenty of thrills. That’s what I’m talking about when I say paradise.

Just another rooftop pool on an expensive hotel, right? Wrong! Well, not entirely wrong, but this expensive hotel rooftop pool has a part with a glass bottom.

Why haven’t we had a pool with a wonderful mountain view? We’ve had city skylines, woods, and oceans, but why haven’t we had a pool with an awesome mountain view? That’s because I saved the finest for last. They even installed a lounge chair in the pool so you can gaze out at the mountains and think you don’t have to return to work in a few days. Wonderful!
