Swimming Pool Designs – The Resort Trend

Home swimming pool designs have evolved far beyond the traditional kidney shaped pool in the backyard. Clients are now using designer pools from luxury resorts as inspiration for their own pools to recreate the experience they had while they were on holiday.

The biggest trend at the moment is recreating the “reflective water” look which immediately makes a visual statement which can be done by building a wet edge pool. This style of pool is often referred to as an infinity edge, knife edge, negative edge and wet deck pools which all use different techniques to create a similar look.

We’ve used these images of the top resort pools in the world as inspiration for the look our Integrated Pools team can achieve in your home (named in order of appearance).

  1. Alila Villas Uluwatu – Bali, Indonesia

This resort takes the infinity pool to the next level! The resort uses sustainable and local materials, water conservation systems and makes an effort to protect the surrounding environment which makes it even more appealing.

  1. Boucan by Hotel Chocolat – Saint Lucia

Built on Saint Lucia’s oldest cocoa estate, the resort boasts 14 private lodges with open-air rainforest showers (how divine!) but the real feature is the 15-metre black quartz infinity pool with views towards the cone-shaped volcano Petit Piton.

  1. The Chedi, Andermatt – Switzerland

This five-star hotel and apartment complex was inspired by the Swiss ski resorts of the early 20th century its elegant 35-metre long indoor swimming pool off the lobby the centrepiece, overlooking the ice rink and spectacular alpine scenery beyond.
