  • At the InterContinental Resort and Spa Tahiti, guests enjoy expansive views amid lush tropical greenery. This isn’t the only pool the property boasts, though. Guests get multiple options, including two freshwater infinity pools and a sand-bottomed pool. © Hel080808 |
  • At the more intimate Hotel Le Domaine de L’Orangeraie, bask in the Seychelles sun with a pristine pool on one side and the turquoise ocean waters on the other. The property’s smaller size means you’re never too many steps away from a cool drink or a spot of shade. © Nadezda Stoyanova |
  • Would you expect anything less original from a property named Hotel Unique? Enjoy a swim and some tunes courtesy of the underwater sound system, along with views of São Paulo, if you’re not turned off by the water’s crimson hue. © Filipe Frazao |
  • Once Manhattan heats up, head to The James Hotel in Soho for the rooftop experience christened Jimmy. The pool, bar and lounge come with great views of the city, 18 stories up, and are modeled with a 1970s Manhattan vibe in mind. © Christopher Heil |
