Heated, plunge, underground, and (above all) totally private… as the newly appointed Travel Editor of Camille Styles, I’ve been around the world and back searching for the best hotel pools in the world. After a very labor-intensive search, I *think* I’ve finally found it — a perfectly serene beachside bath ingeniously heated by two overflowing hot tubs at the San Cristobal in Todos Santos. It’s the kind of pool you end up staying in for hours and forgetting which day of the week it is. In fact, I believe we stayed until we were politely told it was closed for the evening… but that doesn’t mean my search is over. This is the kind of quest that, much like the drink tab on my room, truly never ends.

Scroll down for ten of the most beautiful hotel pools in the word—some I’ve already been to, and some still at the top of my the bucket list. See one that makes you want to drop everything and book a plane ticket? You’re in good company. Let us know your favorites in the comments, and any others we may have missed! Happy swimming.

    This makes me really want to take a tropical trip right now. I’m in desperate need of one, for I haven’t been anywhere like this for years. I’ve heard fabulous things about the pools in Marrakech (that’s one of the top places on my travel list) and Iceland. However, the pools in Bali and Greece also look fabulous. I don’t think I would ever be able to leave such a beautiful place!

    Wonderful! I have one to add: the Hyatt on the Bund in Shanghai has a tiny pool on the rooftop. To sit there at night and watch Shanghai from above is breathtaking.
