From glass bottomed pools to amazing views…stay tuned to number 1 to see the most insanely
00:05
cool swimming pools in the world!
00:18
Number 10: Glass Bottomed Sky Pool.
00:21
Imagine swimming in a pool with the bottom made of glass.
00:25
It would be awesome, right?
00:27
You could see everything below the pool, and it would give you a nice optical illusion
00:30
like you’re flying, or something like that.
00:33
Now imagine that the glass-bottomed pool was high up in the air.
00:37
Like, at the top of a building?
00:39
Well, that would be both exciting and frightening!
00:42
And this is not just an idea…the actual pool exists.
00:46
In the city of Houston, Texas there is a luxury apartment complex called Market Square Tower,
00:51
and on top of the building is a swimming pool.
00:53
The pool is mostly on the deck of the roof, itself, but a small section hangs a bit over
00:58
the edge…and it has a glass bottom, so that the swimmers can admire the view while enjoying
01:04
the water.
01:05
This is unfortunately a private pool, so the public doesn’t have access to it, but if you
01:10
happen to meet someone who lives there, you might get a chance to experience swimming
01:14
in this pool yourself!
01:17
Number 9: Marina Bay Sands.
01:20
One of the newest trends in luxury hotels in the concept of so-called “infinity pools.”
01:25
But before we talk about this one, we’d really appreciate it if you’d take a moment to subscribe
01:29
to our channel!
01:30
Don’t forget to click that little notification bell, and, something else…Oh yeah!
01:35
Like this video!!
01:37
Infinity pools are called that way because they give you the illusion that there is no
01:41
end to your swimming…you don’t see the edge of the pool right in front of you, because
01:45
the water rolls over in such a way that it creates an illusion that it merges into the
01:49
landscape, be it the sea, the view of the city, etc.
01:53
And one of the most amazing infinity pools in the world is definitely the one in Marina
01:57
Bay Sands hotel in Singapore.
01:59
What makes this infinity pools unique is that it’s much bigger than other pools of its kind…and
02:05
it’s located 57 floors above the ground.
02:09
Hotel guests can enjoy lying around in their sunbeds, with the wide infinity pools in front
02:13
of them, and a breathtaking view of the city ahead.
02:15
It’s really one of the best hotel views money can buy.
02:18
A real gem in Singapore’s crown!
02:22
Number 8: The Shark Tank With all of the fierce competition between
02:27
hotels, trying to win business, all of the hotels are competing for your dollar.
02:31
This is especially true in Las Vegas…the entertainment capital of the world.
02:35
The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino realized the importance of exquisite hotel features…and
02:40
they came up with something pretty wild: swimming with sharks!
02:45
No, don’t worry, you’re not actually swimming with the sharks, like in a James Bond movie,
02:51
but it’s pretty close to that.
02:53
To its guests, The Golden Nugget offers a pool called “The Tank” and, in the middle
02:58
of the pool, there is a 200,000 gallon shark tank aquarium.
03:02
But here’s the best part…you don’t simply get a chance to swim in the pool and watch
03:06
the sharks from afar, while they’re prowling in the water.
03:09
No, no!
03:10
The experience is much more intense than that because there is a special, built-in waterslide.
03:14
So, you can rush down the waterslide and literally be a couple of feet away from the sharks…they
03:20
are right next to you!
03:21
Now, that’s really something.
03:24
Number 7: Swimming Pool “Bridge.”
03:27
In our first entry, we talked about a swimming pool that goes just a little over the edge
03:31
of the building.
03:32
But, imagine a swimming pool that goes all the way from one building to the other.
03:36
Yes, this really exists.
03:39
Okay, so…it will exist.
03:42
The so-called “Sky Pool” is located in London, and it’s been dubbed the world’s first pool
03:47
with a transparent bottom…of that kind.
03:50
115 feet in the air, and 82 feet in length, Sky Pool is a true feat of engineering.
03:56
The engineer behind the project is the company Eckersley O’Callaghan, which worked with Apple,
04:01
helping design their unique Apple stores around the world.
04:04
Sky Pool will be part of the property development called Embassy Gardens, and the plan is to
04:09
complete it by the summer of 2019, although there are still some minor difficulties.
04:15
The pool has to be placed literally between two buildings, both of which will “pull it,”
04:19
in different directions.
04:20
So, this has to be taken into consideration.
04:23
Also, both buildings are slightly affected by the wind, which also may come a minor problem
04:28
in figuring everything out.
04:30
But the engineers are working hard in order to turn this project into a reality.
04:35
Let’s hope they pull it off!
04:37
Number 6: The Hanging Gardens of Bali.
04:40
Yes, the name sure sounds mythical and magical, and rightly so.
04:45
If you want an exotic location with breathtaking scenery and a gorgeous pool to top it off,
04:50
look no further.
04:51
Near Parayan, a village north of the city of Ubud in Bali, there is a luxurious destination
04:57
called the Hanging Gardens of Bali.
04:59
This award-winning resort overlooks the ancient temple of Dalem Segara and the Ayung River,
05:05
and it stands right next to a beautiful valley, offering its guests so many things to experience
05:10
and enjoy.
05:11
The nature is gorgeous, the spa treatments are luxurious, but what really stands out
05:16
is the Twin-Tiered Cascading Pool, an absolute must-see.
05:20
This swimming pool has been named “the world’s best swimming pool’ by many travel websites,
05:25
and it always shows up in the brochures and travel offers for the Hanging Gardens of Bali.
05:29
The way it’s designed, with the two levels overlooking the dense forest ahead and the
05:34
beautiful nature of the whole region, gives the Twin-Tiered Cascading Pool that little
05:38
extra, taking it to a level above the rest.
05:43
Number 5: Jade Mountain Pool.
05:46
When you hear the world Caribbean, probably the first synonym that comes to your mind
05:50
is “exotic.”
05:51
The Caribbean islands really have a unique appeal, and some of the best hotels and tourist
05:55
attractions are to be found in this part of the world.
05:58
And the island of Saint Lucia is no exception to the rule; this is the place of Jade Mountain,
06:04
a fantastic resort with so much to offer.
06:07
You can enjoy yourself on the hotel’s private beach, or experience all the wonderful things
06:11
its spa treatment has to offer.
06:13
Each room in the hotel has a fantastic view, which means that the good time is guaranteed.
06:19
But what really makes this hotel resort stand out is its swimming pool.
06:23
It doesn’t have a weird design, it doesn’t stretch across acres of land…but it has
06:28
a fantastic location, overlooking the sea and the surrounding mountains.
06:32
It’s elevated a bit, in the style of infinity pools, and…if you swim toward the edges,
06:38
you will have a feeling like you’re flying towards the sea.
06:40
A unique feeling.
06:42
The pool’s tiles are very colorful, and they create a beautiful visual effect, combined
06:47
with the sunshine and the water.
06:50
Number 4: Belmond Caruso Pool.
06:53
Ahhh, Ravello, Italy…well, what’s not to love in Italy?
06:58
The country has everything: great wines, amazing culture, fantastic cuisine, beautiful women,
07:04
and astounding landscapes.
07:06
Yup, if you want to have a good time, go to Italy, because it really covers all the bases.
07:12
But Italy wouldn’t be as great were it not for its hotels; Italy has some of the best
07:16
hotels in the world…one of which is Belmond Hotel Caruso.
07:21
Located on the coast of Amalfi, a small town in the province of Salerno, the hotel offers
07:26
one of the most amazing sea views in all of Italy.
07:30
Its offer is very, very rich…with terraced gardens, luxurious rooms, and suites with
07:36
private balconies.
07:37
But it also has one of the best swimming pools any Italian hotel has to offer.
07:42
It’s done in the infinity pool style, but, because of the hotel’s altitude, it looks
07:47
like you’re floating in the air.
07:49
Even when you’re by the pool, not in it, it creates an illusion of flying.
07:53
But, when you’re in the swimming pool, the feeling is simply indescribable.
07:59
Number 3: Crocosaurus Cove Pool.
08:02
If your idea of a good time is swimming with crocodile, lets do this!
08:06
Again, this is not really swimming with the beasts, but it’s definitely pretty close.
08:11
This type of fun is especially designed for those who want an adrenaline rush in their
08:16
life.
08:17
The Crocosaurus Cove pool offers a lot of fun for those who adore crocodiles and have
08:21
a sense of adventure.
08:22
Here, you can find over 200 species of crocodiles, literally all kinds!
08:27
But the best part is that you’re allowed to go into swimming pools and be very near the
08:31
crocs.
08:32
Every day, there are 12 “dips,” from 9:30 AM to 5PM, when you enter a protected cage
08:38
and go down into the croc-infested swimming pool.
08:40
The cage is not that small, as it can carry up to two people.
08:44
It’s transparent, made of special material, and it allows you to look at the crocodiles
08:48
and admire them up-close.
08:50
If this is your thing, don’t wait…the swimming pool at the Croc Cove is waiting.
08:53
Enjoy yourself; just be sure to stay within the confines of the glass cage.
08:58
It’s not your regular swimming pool, you know?
09:01
Number 2: Pamukkale Thermal Pools.
09:04
Yes, there are many man-made swimming pools that are absolutely stunning, but what about
09:09
the pools mother nature created for us?
09:11
We haven’t mentioned any of those, yet, so here it is…one of the best natural pools
09:16
in the world: the Pamukkale Thermal.
09:18
If you haven’t heard of it, even better, because you’re in for a treat.
09:22
Pamukkale (which in Turkish means “cotton castle”) is one of the most amazing natural
09:26
wonders in the country.
09:28
It is a series of open-air swimming pools and spa baths, characterized by their sparkling
09:32
turquoise color; made such because of travertine sedimentary rocks, which give it that special
09:37
glow.
09:38
If you look at some of the pictures or postcards of Pamukkale, you’d think that the place is
09:43
covered in snow, because it’s all white, but no…it’s just the way these rocks are.
09:47
The pools come in all shapes and sizes, and their water is extremely beneficial.
09:52
You’re not only enjoying yourself, but also working on your health.
09:56
The entrance fee is less than $20 per person, and you can enjoy all the splendors the swimming
10:01
pools of Pamukkale have to offer.
10:04
Number 1: Nemo 33.
10:07
Why have we chosen this as number one on our list?
10:10
Because…it’s completely bonkers!
10:12
It’s weird, and amazing at the same time.
10:15
But this is a special kind of swimming pool, as it’s designed for deep-sea divers.
10:19
During the 90s, John Beernaerts, who’s a deep-sea diver, wanted to create something for other
10:24
diving enthusiasts, because he saw one major flaw in the whole preparation system for divers…at
10:29
the time, there were no real, specialized pools of this kind.
10:33
Divers used to practice in shallow pools in the city of Brussels, but that simply wasn’t
10:37
enough.
10:38
John knew, experienced as he was, that there is a big difference between diving in a basic
10:43
pool versus a lagoon of an underwater cave.
10:46
That’s why he wanted to bring the real deep-sea diving experience right to Brussels…so he
10:51
made Nemo 33.
10:53
This is the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world, and it has everything.
10:57
From simulated caves to its many platforms, mimicking those of underwater rocks and lagoons.
11:02
But the most amazing thing is the 33-meter cylindrical pit.
11:07
Nemo 33 is great for those who are just getting started, but it’s also a great place for experienced
11:12
divers who simply want to practice.
11:14
And, if you’re not into deep-sea diving, we suggest you take a swim in one of the previous
11:19
entries on the list!
11:21
Which pool was your favorite?
