Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Why? The infinity pool of the Marina Bay Sands could be called a classic rooftop pool. Because here you swim at the lofty height of 191 meters towards the city. With a length of 150 meters, it's also considered the largest of its kind. In the past, both, the pool and the rooftop garden were open to the public. That has changed due to the crowds. Currently, only hotel guests can swim in this attraction in Singapore. Top tip therefore: Stay for at least two nights. Because the number of guests who only spend one night here because of the pool is high. But they have to leave around noon the next day. And that is the ideal time to enjoy a deserted pool.

Why? Dubai isn't exactly short of superlatives anyway. The highest infinity pool in the world joins the list. It's almost 95 meters long and allows swimming at a height of 293.906 meters, to be very precise. On level 77, the view falls on the Ferris wheel "Ain Dubai" and the Umeirah Beach. Here, too, only hotel guests have access. And only if you are over 21 years old. Incidentally, the gym is just a few meters below, offers similarly spectacular views and is also open to non-guests.

Why? Lust for life and Rio - these two terms go hand in hand. But even the most party-loving guests need a time-out now and then. For this, the pool of the Hotel Fasano is just right. The hotel is located on the Ipanema beach promenade. The view from the pool therefore falls on the waves and on the city. Good to know: The hotel's design is by star designer Philippe Starck. The décor is inspired by Dalí; the hotel is one of the Leading Hotels of the World.

Why? There are many reasons why you should be sure to visit the Amalfi Coast. For example, the picturesque towns nestled against the cliffs are pure Insta-gold. It gets even more spectacular when you take your next selfie in the pool of the Belmond Hotel Caruso. Because the view from here falls over the invisible edge towards the horizon. The entire pool area fits perfectly with the rest of the house; a former palazzo from the 11th century.
