From Bali to the Amalfi Coast, the pool’s the thing at these gorgeous resorts—not to mention lavish accommodations, jaw-dropping views, and hands-on pampering. Go ahead, take the plunge!
IN THE SWIM Three stunning pools lead the way to the beach at this exclusive resort, a combination of an Art Deco–inspired glass tower and a converted landmark hotel.
POOL SCHOOL Each of the pools, created by hotel designer Jean-Michel Gathy, is set at a different temperature, from a bracing 75 degrees (conducive to lap swimming) to 95 (perfect for lolling).
BEST TIME TO DIVE IN December through March, with temperatures in the high 70s.
