World’s Most Amazing Hotel Swimming Pools

World’s Most Amazing Hotel Swimming Pools

In the past few months I have been to Thailand and Hawaii and at both I discovered that the hotels I was staying at had the largest swimming pool in their country (or state in Hawaii’s case). It’s just a coincidence, I swear!

Now, these pools were pretty amazing. So it got me wondering about just how much bigger and better they can possibly come?!

Boy was I surprised. From gold-plated pools to postcard-perfect scenery, I’ve already packed my swimmers and started planning my next getaway.

1. San Alfonso del Mar, Algarrabo, Chile

Selling point: World’s biggest and deepest swimming pool. Where else can you sail a boat on a pool?! Crazy!
