Amazing facts-Awe inspiring swimming pools

Hanging Pool

This architecturally- daring pool, designed by Architexas , sits atop The Joule hotel in Dallas, Texas. Ten stories above the ground, the pool projects eight feet over the edge of the building and hangs directly above Main Street, giving dippers dazzling downtown views. Photo Credit:

Private Bay Overlook
Shown below is one of many private infinity pools at Six Sense Hotel in Koh Yao Noi, Thailand (northeast of the better-known island of Phuket). The pool deck offers a magnificent view of Phang Nga Bay and its limestone monoliths, but the best part? Butler service upon request. Photo credit:

Pantheon Pool
The Homestead Crater—a 55-foot-high dome filled halfway with 96°F mineral-rich spring water—is a favorite among local water skiers, snorkelers and scuba divers. Located at the Homestead Resort in Midway, Utah, this natured-inspired pool is lit during the evenings to illuminate the mineral deposits that decorate the chamber’s walls.

Blood-Red Pool
Appropriately set in Marrakesh, Morocco—known as the “Red City” due the city buildings’ crimson-colored mud walls—this 105-foot-long pool sits at the center of the Murano Oriental Resort. Paved with red enamel and similarly-hued mosaic tiles, the pool water gives off a rosy tint, providing a visual allusion to the city’s nickname. Photo Credit:
