10 Splash-tacular Pools in Asia : Asia Travel

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong

You’ll surely feel on top of the world when you take a dip in The Ritz-Carlton’s indoor infinity swimming pool. At 490 metres above sea level—you can’t go higher than this in search of a swimming pool. There are 144 LED screens on the ceiling that play images continuously for the benefit of those practicing their backstroke. And, did we mention the outdoor Jacuzzi? Yes, that’s there too. www.ritzcarlton.com

Alila Ubud, Bali

Cocooned in greenery, the 25-metre emerald green swimming pool on the terrace of Alila Ubud appears to be afloat above the Ayung River valley. The stone-tiled sundeck is a peaceful escape to nature, dotted with sun beds with Balinese umbrellas overhead. www.alilahotels.com
