All of us are mostly accustomed with our backyard swimming pools. However, besides these general swimming pools, there are some strange swimming pools across the globe. Here are some of them:
Intercontinental Hotel, Hong Kong
The Intercontinental Hotel of Hong Kong offers exclusive amenities and the prime attraction of the retreat is its set of three pools that perches atop its third-floor spa deck, overlooking the beautiful Victoria Harbor. The three pools have three different temperature controls – cold, warm and hot. Visitors are free to choose the pool according to their preferences, and enjoy the wonderful view of the Hong Kong skyline.
San Alfonso Del Mar, Chile
This the biggest swimming pool in the world, which is more than 3000 feet long, with the deep end going down to 115 feet. Nestling at a seaside resort in Chile, the pool was built in around five years with a budget of $1.6 billion. The annual maintenance fee of the pool is $3.2 million. The pool can contain more than 66 million gallons of water. The high-end technology maintains a constant flow of fresh water into the pool and old water backs out to the sea. The pool also employs an advanced filtration system, to desalinate sea water before it enters the pool and clean the pool water, before it goes back to the ocean.
Ubud Hanging gardens, Bali
At the Ubud Hanging Gardens in Bali, you will enjoy a unique swimming experience like never before. The retreat hosts two exotic swimming pools - one at a greater height and the other one at low height. The high swimming pool overlooks the stunning valley and the lower pool nestling amidst the terraced garden will offer you an unmatched experience.
Ranglai Island, Maldives
Extending into the Indian Ocean from a small island in the Maldives, this lavish pool belongs to the Conrad Maldives Resort and Spa. It is famously known as “infinity pools”, which has been designed exclusively to dissolve the edges of the pool and it will make you feel like as if you are floating atop the ocean itself.
SkyPark at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
SkyPark at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore features a beautiful infinity pool, offering a first-class view – 55 stories up. Nestling stop the three towers of the most expensive hotels around the globe, the water seamlessly flows over the edge into a catchment and back into the pool. The pool has been designed in such a way that it touches all the three buildings and is longer than the Eiffel Tower laid on its side.
Nemo 33, Belgium
Nemo 33 was formerly the deepest pool in the world, boasting a depth of 108 ft. The pool uses superbly filtered spring water at 96 degrees Fahrenheit. It is the home to diving instruction, recreational uses and film production. The swimming pool maintains a continuous warm temperature, and thus divers are not needed to wear any wetsuits.
