Amangiri, Utah

The Amangiri resort [2] is tucked into the startlingly beautiful Southern Utah landscape and built around this central swimming pool.

Belmond Hotel Caruso, Amalfi Coast

A palace in the 11th century, the Belmond Hotel Caruso [3] has been updated to include an infinity pool with jaw-dropping views of the Mediterranean Sea.

The Library Hotel, Thailand

Prepare to be dazzled by the famous "Red Pool" at the Library Hotel [4]. Lined with a mosaic of deep red, orange, and yellow tiles, it emits a brilliant red color in sharp contrast with the white sand of the beach, just steps away.

The Marina Bay Sands Resort, Singapore

Float on top of the world in the infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands Resort [5]. This awe-inspiring infinity pool is one of the largest and highest ever built.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong

While taking a dip in the Ritz-Carlton [6]'s indoor pool, you can enjoy the view of Victoria Harbour from the pool's 118th floor perch or watch the action on the 144 LED screens installed on the ceiling above.

Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The sprawling pool at the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort [7] is a lush oasis located within the arid Abu Dhabi desert that surrounds it.

Huvafen Fushi, Maldives

Filled with dramatic fiber-optic lights, the expansive pool at Huvafen Fushi [8] is fun to frolic in during the day and delightful to dine in once the sun sets.

Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru, Maldives

Overlooking the Indian Ocean, the infinity pool at the Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru [9] is the heart of the hotel. If you're lucky enough to book a stay in one of the beach villas, be sure to take part in a sunset swim; the sky's colors reflect beautifully against the pool's crystal-clear water.

One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos, Mexico

With two infinity pools, it's no wonder the One&Only Palmilla [10] is a hideout for celebrities like Jennifer Aniston [11] and Eva Longoria [12]. Features include stunning views (of course!), flowing waterfalls, and a swim-up bar.

Astra Suites, Santorini, Greece

Overlooking the Aegean Sea, the infinity pool at the Astra Suites [13] looks more like a movie set than reality. Best part? Enjoying a glass of wine after a swim at the poolside bar.

We are grateful to John Poisson [28] for letting us in on the fantastically cool pool at The Greenwich [29]. The beams on the ceiling were taken from an old Japanese barn.

Hotel du Lac, Lake Como

Even if the Hotel du Lac [31] wasn't on gorgeous Lake Como, we would still want to go just for the insanely charming hotel pool umbrellas.

Selman, Marrakech

Inspired by the golden age of Marrakech and the haciendas typical of Andalucía, the Selman's pool [41] is rivaled by the stables full of Arabian horses. Or as the website calls them, the "beautiful living art pieces."

Four Seasons, Shanghai

The fact that it's an infinity pool with views of Shanghai will make you forget that this Four Seasons [43]' pool is in a high-rise.
