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.
The world's best hotel infinity pools
Strawberry Hill Hotel
Jamaica's Strawberry Hill Hotel features an infinity pool which pushes the limits of design with its unqiue negative-edge structure that appears to vanish into the valley below. From this spot, guests can enjoy unobstructed views views over the majestic Blue Mountains and Kingston Town, at a lofty height of nearly 1,000 metres.

D Maris Bay Hotel
The 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, it overlooks the scenic point where the waters of the Aegean and Mediterranean meet. For a different perspective, 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 sitting atop 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.
The Greek isle of Santorini is synonymous with stunning sunsets, and with views across the caldera at this boutique hotel’s serpentine pool is possibly the best place to enjoy them. The largest of its kind on the island, it’s a magnet for canoodling couples.

Four of the five luxurious villas at this hilltop retreat come with private pools, but Rahimoana’s 25 metre 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.

Belmond Hotel Caruso
Sitting at the highest point in Ravello, the pool sprawls over the cliff edge at 350 metres above the Bay of Salerno. Settle in for the day knowing that the hotel’s white-blazered staff are on hand to deliver fresh fruit platters, Evian vaporisers and an iPod preloaded with your choice of tunes.
