Top Five Over the Top Cool Hotel Pools


From the world's largest in Chile to the most unexpected in New York to the most luxurious in Beverly Hills to the most Hollywood-esque in Barcelona, these pools are a pool-dwellers dream. If the first thing you check out following hotel check-in is the watery oasis that comes with your stay, you've gotta see these:  


San Alfonso Del Mar Resort, Chile: The Guiness World Record’s largest pool covers more than 20 acres of transparent ocean water so crystal clear you can see the bottom even in the 115-foot deep end. Hotel guests can even use kayaks and small boats to navigate its waters, which are filtered directly from the bordering Pacific Ocean.

SLS_PoolDeck_9404 Altitude at SLS Hotel, Beverly Hills: Situated on the sixth floor of the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, these two whimsical pools are an oasis above the busy downtown L.A. scene. The first pool is a reflecting pool with chaise lounges resting in the shallow end, giving guests the look of floating over water.


The Pooldeck at The Empire Hotel, Manhattan: A hidden gem above busy Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, this bi-level Pooldeck is replete with linen curtains, day-beds, ceiling fans, LCD televisions, iPod docking stations, mini refrigerators, telephones and wireless internet access.


Angels & Kings Pooldeck, ME Barcelona: This picturesque location's pool has movie projections displayed over the water as well as through the waterfall feature in the center of the pool. During the evenings, the space turns into the city’s hottest nightspot, with a stage for impromptu karaoke battles. 


Grace 2 Room Mate Grace, New York: In the heart of Times Square, this hotel has the most unusual and unexpected pool in the city. As guests walk into the lobby of the property, they are greeted by a chic, brightly neon-colored pool with its very own swim up bar.
