Heading off on your honeymoon calls for some rest and relaxation, and what could be better than chilling out with a book before cooling off in some of the finest pools in the world. Check out some of our favourites.
Hanging Gardens of Bali, Bali
This incredible Ubud hotel is at the top of lots of lists when it comes to the best swimming pool, and its main cascading pool overlooking the lush Balinese jungle has even been awarded ‘World’s Best Swimming Pool’ by TripAdvisor and Condé Nast Traveller. Honeymooners can stay in their own private villa with an individual infinity pool and enjoy the view with a champagne breakfast or a romantic dinner.

Belmond Hotel Caruso, Italy
The Amalfi Coast is always going to have amazing views when it comes to swimming pools, and the Belmond Hotel Caruso is one of our favourites. A whopping 1,000ft above sea level, Belmond Hotel Caruso affords some breathtaking views of Ravello, and their infinity pool is the perfect place to watch the Italian sunset. The hotel will even bring you fresh fruit and an iPod loaded with your choice of music while you’re enjoying the view.
Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
Singapore is quickly becoming one of the hottest new honeymoon destinations around, and there’s nowhere better to enjoy a rooftop view of the city than the enormous infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands. Touted as the world’s largest infinity pool and set within the famous SkyPark, this 150m long pool is a massive 57 storeys up, and surrounded by restaurants, bars and luxurious pool loungers. Why would you ever leave?
Andronis Luxury Suites, Santorini
We couldn’t not mention Santorini in this list, as the luxurious Greek island is the first place that comes to mind when it comes to beautiful pools. Plenty of hotels in the area have pools that take advantage of the fabulous views of the Caldera, but one of our top picks has to be Andronis Luxury Suites. Many of the 27 rooms include private pools, but our favourite has to be the jaw-dropping Exceptional Suite, pictured above.
Hotel Villa Honegg, Switzerland
This Art Nouveau-inspired hotel looks like something straight out of a Wes Anderson film, and at 3,000ft above sea level, Hotel Villa Honegg boasts supreme views of the surrounding valley. Nature-loving couples will be right at home, as the infinity pool overlooks the pristine Lake Lucerne and snow-capped mountains. The 5* spa is the perfect place to relax after a day of hiking and watersports, too. Check out some more of our favourite hotels in Switzerland here.
