19 Spectacular Pools From Around the Globe

From Houzz

With over 40 Million users worldwide, Houzz is the website that everyone goes to when looking to do a home improvement or design project.  The ability to view and keep spectacular photos in an ideabook, save them for later, and incorporate those features on one's own design has been an invaluable tool for a good percentage of the world's population.  This post, which features a pool by Platinum Pools, highlights some incredible pools that include infinity edges, oceanside vistas, and other luxurious features and amenities that will inspire.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

These incredible infinity pools, heavenly oceanside pools and luxurious lap pools around the world have unmatched allure. Take a dip

No music, no reading material, no phones — just water all around.
