Time has come to plan for your next trip, but you still don't know where to go. To the other side of the world, or next to you? In a luxury or boutique hotel? Since the issue has become an existential one, here is a solution to solve it: select the swimming pool!
Nowadays, the most beautiful establishments compete to attract you in their pools. When outside, infinity pools remain top-notch. But if you long for a city break, favour ambiance and design. Still so many options, but fear not! We offer you a few tips to make the right decision.
Marina Bay Sands in Singapore
The hotel overlooks the city, and so does the swimming pool. Get up to that last floor, put on your bathing suit and dive head first in the pool: this is a prerequisite for any good traveller. Admire the view, from the skies above.

Hotel Unique in São Paulo
São Paulo, Brazil. On the other side of the world, you will find a hotel unusual to say the least. In the shape of a half-moon, it is called “the watermelon”. Everything is in white there, except for the swimming pool which is… red. An architect's fancy? Possibly. However, São Paulo's gem is fast becoming the talk of the town.

Molitor Mgallery in Paris
Since it reopened in 2014, the Molitor swimming pool is the place to be in Paris. Playing the card of an ultra-sleek design, the place rides on a 1930s wave, when the pool was actually built. Abandoned for a very long time, it rose up again. Almost everything was recreated in similar fashion, including of course both inside and outside pools. A real feat.

Plantation d'Albion in Mauritius
In order to access the Zen swimming pool of the club, you have to drive your golf cart and cross the premises before going for a dip. Such a worthwhile wonderful journey in itself. The infinity pool is really a thing of beauty. A few metres only from your grasp lies the Indian Ocean, and nothing else in front of you.

Belmond Hotel Caruso on the Amalfi Coast
This is what you'd call a swimming pool with a view! Perched over the town of Ravello in Southern Italia, the swimming pool is located on the premises of an 11th century palazzo. Each breaststroke is an opportunity to exclaim that nature is really the best you can get, what a view or why not live here? You will never want to get out.
