While we often journey to a destination to experience the local culture and activities, it is always nice to have the option to relax at your hotel. A fabulous pool to lounge in is one of the best amenities a hotel can offer. Here are a few of the most beautiful hotel pools in the world.
The Kachchan infinity pool at the Heritance Kandalama Hotel blends into the view of Kandalama lake. This exceptional pool was designed by architect Geoffrey Bawa.

The Palais de la Mediterranee in the coastal city of Nice, France, offers guests an indoor and an outdoor pool to choose from. The outdoor pool is ideal in the summer, where you can enjoy a view of the Bay of Angels.

Infinity pools are designed to create an optical illusion, and the 55 foot long pool at Hotel Villa Mahal does just that.
