The World's Best Hotel Infinity Pools


D Maris Bay Hotel

Datça Peninsula, Turkey

Dreaming about when you can travel again? Take a look at the best luxury hotel infinity pools with instagramable sea views to help inspire your next trip.

D Maris Bay Hotel, Turkey

The infinity pool at D Maris Bay in Turkey is one of the best spots for taking in views of the surrounding natural landscape. Perched on a rocky outcrop opposite the Dodecanese Islands, the pool overlooks the scenic point where the waters of the Aegean and Mediterranean meet. If you want another perspective, you can ride the funicular down to one of the hotel's five private beaches for direct access to the sea.

Monastero Santa Rosa

This romantic resort has been perched high upon the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast since the 17th century, when it was originally a convent. The hotel offers views as far as the eye can see across the Tyrrhenian Sea and Gulf of Salerno, and the best seats in the house are located at the edge of the infinity pool, which is ingeniously sculpted into the rock face.

Eagles Nest

Bay of Islands, New Zealand

Four of the five luxurious villas at this hilltop retreat come with private pools, but Rahimoana’s 25m strip of infinity is in a league of its own. It overlooks its own private beach and the otherworldly cruising grounds of the Bay of Islands: eagle-eyed residents will be able to spot dolphins and orcas in the bay below from its heated waters.

It’s hard to moor in Porto Montenegro without being tempted to take an envy- inducing snap in its yacht club’s 64m infinity pool (it even has a picture frame built in). Yacht owners lounge under its parasols, taking in the views of the Bay of Kotor.
