There’s nothing quite like a stunning swimming pool. Whenever I choose the hotel for my holiday, I always make sure it’s got a beautiful pool. Don’t get me wrong, I really, really love the beach, but if it’s a bit breezy or all the parasols have been taken because I’ve got up too late, it’s nice to have the pool to retreat too.
If you can find a pool with an amazing view, you’ve really hit the jackpot. Sitting back in the cool water, cocktail in hand whilst looking out over a stunning vista; things don’t get much better than that.
Take a look at these 8 luxuriously indulgent hotels; they all have incredible swimming pools with the most breath-taking views.
