10 Splash-tacular Pools in Asia : Asia Travel

The St Regis Lhasa Resort, Tibet

This one’s especially for yellow metal lovers, for it really doesn’t get more luxurious than a sparkling, golden pool. Tiled with thousands of real gold plates, the temperate-controlled Gold Energy Pool at The St Regis Lhasa Resort welcomes guests with a black and white sea serpent design, crafted on the wall by a local artist.www.starwoodhotels.com

Vana Belle, Koh Samui

Cabanas to lounge in peacefully, a kids’ pool, and a whirlpool—all this with spectacular views of the Gulf of Thailand, and you’ll agree that the freshwater infinity pool at Vana Belle (a Luxury Collection Resort) is perfect in more ways than one. Don’t miss a walk by the pool at night when it is illuminated with red, blue, green, and yellow lights.
