Think about a holiday and one of the first things that springs to mind is lazing by the pool. We've searched far and wide to bring you eight of the most luxurious pools from around the world. We can't make up our mind which we want to dive into first...
To infinity and beyond in Tenerife
Infinity pools are marvellous things, giving a breathtaking impression of the water flowing endlessly into the horizon. Tenerife has Europe's largest infinity pool at the Gran Meliá Palacio de Isora. The pool is 5000 m2, and looks out over the Atlantic Ocean and La Gomera island. You can lie back and bask in the sunshine or take refuge from the rays in the little thatched pavilions that are dotted here and there throughout the pool to provide shade. Thoughtful!
