There aren’t many things in life that are more relaxing than sipping a fruity cocktail or reclining in a warm infinity pool. Well, what if you could do both? Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it? Luckily, there are plenty of luxurious infinity pools across that globe that have poolside bars, so you won’t even need to leave the comfort of the water to enjoy that refreshing drink.
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, Hawaii
A top pick for water babies, there are three swimming pools on offer at the Four Seasons Maui, which was the winner of Tripadvisor’s 2012 Travellers’ Choice award. The huge infinity pool will make you feel as though you’re swimming right into the ocean, and you’ll also be treated to a swim up bar with submerged bar stools and a swanky underwater music system.
Elsa’s Kopje, Kenya
This award-winning lodge in the heart of Kenya was named after the famous lioness in the novel ‘Born Free’, and it’s known as one of the best spots in the world to view wild rhino. It’s not only safaris that guests can enjoy here, as the gorgeous infinity pool has been built into the side of the hill, giving guests unmissable views across the Kenyan landscape. There’s also a poolside bar service, so you can enjoy a chilled cocktail while you watch the sun go down from the comfort of the pool.
One&Only Palmilla, Mexico
The first Mexican resort on our list, the One&Only Palmilla can be found in the heart of Los Cabos and has been recently rejuvenated to give guests an even more luxurious experience. The adult-only pool features flowing waterfalls and a swim up bar, so you can enjoy a first class cocktail without having to leave the water.
Be Live Grand Riviera Maya, Mexico
Just a stone’s throw away from some of the best beaches in Mexico, the Be Live Grand is one of the most popular hotels in Cancun. Featuring over ten restaurants and bars, this is the perfect resort to visit if you consider yourself a bit of a foodie! For those who want to relax at the end of a busy day, the resort’s beach-facing infinity pool is perfect – plus, the neighbouring Wet Bar means you don’t even have to leave the pool for refreshments.
Katikies Hotel, Greece
The Katikies Hotel is one of Santorini’s most beautiful resorts, and that’s saying something! A vision of whitewashed walls and glistening blue water, the infinity pool looks out across the gorgeous Aegean Sea and is a secluded paradise that’s perfect for couples seeking a romantic break.
Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa, Mexico
Last but not least we have Dreams Los Cabos, a golf and spa resort that gives guests the choice of five restaurants and four luxury bars – one of which is located right next to the hotel’s infinity pool, which is a 135ft giant that you’ll never tire of swimming in…just don’t challenge yourself to too many lengths or you’ll never get a chance to enjoy an all-inclusive cocktail!
