The true measure of luxury lifestyle is the ability to relax by a stunning infinity pool in the middle of anywhere. Have you ever been to any of these?
Infinity pools have been the trend in the luxury swimming pool world for the past few decades. They are stunning not only because each one is unique but also because they give the impression of merging with their surrounding environment, especially if they’re located next to the sea.
And while luxury hotels with great views can make luxury vacations even better, the reality is that no matter how big a luxury hotel room is or how many people you can entertain in its dining room, the true measure of a luxury lifestyle is the ability to be in close proximity to a stunning infinity pool that makes the middle of nowhere seem the middle of everywhere.
Although infinity pools are even more stunning when found right next to water as they give the impression of merging with the sea, the truth is that they can be just as stunning when placed in locations where there’s no sea nearby. They thus make great additions to mountain luxury resorts, as well as great additions next to nature reserves.
