Right now, many people feel like they want to just relax somewhere warm next to a really awesome pool with a really awesome view. Thankfully, Oyster has provided just the right inspiration that joins the two, rounding up some of the world’s best infinity pools.
“Merging the man-made and natural, these ultra-luxe pools seem to melt into their surroundings -- the tranquil ocean, towering mountains, and lush greenery -- for miles,” writes Alisha Prakash.
One of the best can be found on the Amalfi Coast at the Belmond Hotel Caruso.
“Situated in an 11th-century palace, the Belmond Hotel Caruso in Ravello is perched above the Tyrrhenian Sea and surrounded by terraced gardens. For the best view from the hotel, stake out a spot in the infinity pool, which overlooks the sea,” says Prakash.
On the French Riviera, visit the Cap Estel Hotel for some killer seaside tranquility.
“Nestled among green lawns and tall trees, the cliffside Cap Estel Hotel offers a secluded retreat for those who are willing to cough up a pretty penny. And you’ll get what you pay for -- that is, a small private pebble beach, Michelin-starred restaurant, spa, cinema room on-site, and above all, an outdoor infinity-edge pool and hot tub that sits on the terrace and looks like it melts into the sea,” she says.
In the Caribbean, head to COMO Parrot Cay in the Turks & Caicos.
“Accessed via a 30-minute boat ride from Providenciales, this 1,000-acre resort on a private island is the epitome of tranquility, thanks to its world-renowned spa, Balinese-style villas, and miles of pristine beach,” writes Prakash.
