There are some amazing swimming pools around the world but nothing can beat the magical illusion of an infinity pool. Some look out over jungle, mountains, lakes or oceans and give the impression that the water ripples out forever into the distance. If you’re looking for the ultimate luxury break then treat yourself to an experience including one of these spectacular pools:

#1 Kandalama Hotel, Dambulla, Sri Lanka

This stunning pool melts effortlessly into the Kandalama Lake. As you relax in his heavenly location, a local flautist will gently play soothing music as all your worries evaporate into the calm, evening skies. There are other pools at this resort and an extra-large one for water sports and daytime fun but as the sunsets, there is only one pool that you’ll want to slide into.
