This pool is your azure jewel of a villa which overlooks neighboring islands in the Caribbean. Although the cabanas draped in yellow cloth and also the lounges look inviting, I’d probably spend all my time at the water looking out into the horizon at sunset. No audio, no reading material, no phones — just water all around.

Aptly called”The Matador,” this crimson-tile lap pool and its retaining wall completely comparison with the surrounding landscape. The swimming pool adds visual interest beyond its striking colour. From that angle it seems like one step within the ledge would require a person straight into an abyss of branches and trees.

The undulating curves of these seats are replicated in the arc of the infinity pool, which begs the question: What came first, the pool or the deck chairs?

This pool comes alive at night with submerged LED lights. The landscape lighting is really amazing as well; the shrub at the background seems ablaze.

I believe this image to symbolize my sacred trifecta of water in the home: a dipping spa, an infinity pool and a sea right at my hands. Whoever lives here must have the most wonderful tan.

This image shows the holy trifecta of pools for children: A waterfall, a slide and a diving board provide the young and the young at heart plenty to do on a hot summer afternoon.

This modern indoor lap pool makes no attempt to replicate character. Instead, it imitates the strong lines and slick features of the house that surrounds it.

Here we are hauled to Kerala, India, in which a smooth border and sand-colored rock fool us into believing that we are at the beach rather than poolside.

This wintry concrete pool image conveys exactly what it must feel like to be a polar bear in the Arctic. Fortunately, a combination of gas heaters, an automatic safety cover and freeze protection keep the pool and swimmers from freezing.

There is something very Zen and marginally aquarium-like relating to this pool, with its own glass surround and rock and pebble flooring. Walking from one end to another must feel like having a gentle foot massage.

Contemporary homes and pools do not need to be angular. This spa and pool form a figure eight which echoes the arc of this staircase in the inside, throwing this huge home a few curves.


Here’s another seamless”beach entry” pool. The rock colors of this pool walls match the orange, green and brown landscape; the swimming pool resembles a little oasis, a liquid mirror reflecting the beauty that surrounds it.

A trough full of art glass at the bottom of the pool makes the coolest, most first lane mark, do not you think? I’d have no trouble swimming straight in this water.

This is definitely an article about dream pools, because I think I see a tree at the middle of the pool with sapphire and pearl tiles.

The wide actions and shallow water amount of the pool are perfect for times when you feel like only being partially submerged. The steps, the view and the way in which the arch frames the whole garden and landscape create this pool image one of my favorites.

Handrails may disrupt the sight lines of infinity pools, but for families and individuals with problems in the waterthey add a safety component which makes them a winner.


A number of waterfalls activated by remote control, a swim-through grotto that leads to a swim-up bar, a kitchen, a flagstone patio with a TV and a sound system, and a dizzying array of custom lighting shows created just for the homeowner make this pool edition of a guy cave.

Even the scuppers and water bowls must surely have a calming effect, but the true winner of the pool is your Italian tile island table, where cocktails and fruit beverages can wait.

This wavy pool takes its cues in the agrarian structure of rice terraces and perfectly blends in with all the lush landscape which surrounds it. It’s the perfect location to see the sky turn from blue to shades of orange and purple, ushering at the night.
