We’re no strangers to awesome pools here at The Manual. We have writers who have been all over the world and dipped their toes into some of the largest, most beautiful, and most luxurious pools ever created. We thought we’d take this opportunity to round up the most Instagrammable pools we could find. From a tropical resorts in Hawaii to a hidden pool at the Berkeley Hotel in London, we’ve got a pool for every selfie.
Surrounded by lush and tropical greenery, the outdoor pool at the Palacio Tangara is uniquely located within Burle-Marx Park, smack in the center of the city. But you wouldn’t know it, given the quiet and reclusive nature of this swimming spot.
Palacio Tangara’s indoor pool is also a site to see. With perfect symmetry, cool blues and grays in the decor, porthole-inspired lighting, and minimalist furniture, Palacio Tangara has the selfie background game down to a science.
Located in Chile’s Millahue Valley, which is famed for its vineyards, Vik Chile is perched on a hilltop overlooking green valleys and gorgeous mountainous surroundings. The infinity pool extends over the lake at the foot of the resort, offering guests the experience to swim above it all.
The St. Regis Princeville Resort on Hawaii’s island of Kauai is as pretty close to paradise as you can get while still being within the United States. With views of the beautiful Hanalei Bay and the jagged Napali Coast, there’s no better spot to take in such a visually seamless connection between pool and ocean.
The massive infinity pool resting on the rooftop of Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands resort complex is a true testament to engineering. Since this pool spans the roofs of three separate skyscrapers in a gentle arc, the view of downtown Singapore is sweeping and moving, particularly at sunrise and sunset.
You would be forgiven for thinking this pool would be found on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The classically styled red and white wooden umbrellas are an excellent touch and a nice pop of bright color to set the stage for your perfect poolside pic.
Float in this pool while soaking in the vista of a tranquil, nearly perfectly circular bay, which belies the violent cataclysmic volcanic eruption that created it. Prep yourself for that killer caldera Instagram post.
