When you think of tropical holiday destinations and infinity pools set amongst lush greenery and mountainous views, it's natural that your first thought is of Asia. With so many exotic paradises to discover, it's no wonder that millions of us jet off to explore this beautiful region each and every year.
Some of the world’s most famous infinity pools are located in Asia, where hotel designers continue to push the boundaries to make each new holiday accommodation more jaw-dropping than the last. A case in point: Singapore's Marina Bay Sands. The overlord of infinity pools, this whopping 150m infinity pool hangs a death-defying 175m above sea level, on the 57th floor of the skyscraper hotel. Now, how’s that for a view?
A continent with a rich culture, Asia has so much on offer to holidaymakers, whether you want to discover the green valleys of Laos, or the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. Holidays can be booked in the name of true escapism and relaxation (try Bali's Alila Ubud Hotel) or maybe you’re after an action-packed fortnight of discovering one of the busiest destinations in the world (if that's more your thing, check out Hong Kong’s Hotel ICON).
It’s not only the tourist hotspots that make Asia such a hot topic in the world of infinity pools, there are also hundreds of undiscovered gems out there that are just waiting for you to arrive, don your best swimmers and leap into the pristine pools.
If you're looking for something a little off the beaten track, Cambodia's Song Saa Private Island is an undiscovered paradise, hidden amongst the rainforest. The sustainable retreat is Cambodia’s first luxury private island resort and provides the ultimate solitude.
So check out the properties below to find out exactly why so many of us fall in love with this exciting, green continent every year. After all, you know what they say; once you visit Asia you leave a piece of your heart there.
