Allow Products4Pools to introduce you to the Amazing Swimming Pools around the world with true wow factor! These extra ordinary pools bring a whole new meaning and experience to swimming. Which would you choose to take the plunge in? Chile is home to the world’s largest swimming pool, as confirmed by the Guinness Book Of Records! The San Alfonso Del Mar Algarrobo is 1013 metres long, dwarfing a 50 metre Olympic sized pool.
It took 5 years to build, covers almost 20 acres and holds 66 million gallons of salt water which is filtered from the Pacific Ocean.
The swimming pool at the Joule Hotel in Dallas defies logic. The pool extends 2.5 metres out from the side of the building. It is partially transparent so as you swim you can look down to the street ten floors below! You are literally swimming and flying; what a feeling…?
You need a head for heights to take a dip in the world’s longest elevated swimming pool. At three times the length of an Olympic pool, the swimming pool at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel & Casino boasts a 200 metre high view of the Singapore skyline from the 57th floor! Similarly the Mandarin Oriental Hotel roof top pool enables you to swim in the sky with a backdrop of the New York skyline.
Dare you swim in shark infested waters? Surely the world’s most terrifying swimming pool is the notorious Tank at The Golden Nugget Resort in Las Vegas. The swimming pool surrounds a 2000 gallon shark tank and an aquarium, which is also home to in excess of 300 species of marine life.
If you prefer relaxation to thrill seeking, the Jade Mountain resort in St. Lucia offers the ultimate sensory indulgence. Glass tiles and fibre optic illumination bring a kaleidoscope of colour to the purified water. The infinity pools which spill out from each luxury suite create an optical illusion whereby the swimming pool water appears to extend to the horizon!
For pure artistry, the Gellert Thermal Baths & Swimming Pool in Budapest are unsurpassed. Constructed in 1912–1918 and recently restored to their full original splendour, the baths are more like an awe inspiring Art Nouveau style cathedral than a swimming pool! References to the healing properties of the water on the site date back to the 13th Century.
The title for the most quirky swimming pool belongs to The Badeshiff, meaning “bathing ship”, on Berlin’s Spree River. This highly unusual pool is an old barge that has been converted into a public swimming pool.
