A NEW symbol of elegance is quickly becoming the centrepiece of luxury hotels around the globe.
Enter the infinity pool, a beautiful and seemingly edge-less form, with water rolling on endlessly towards the horizon.
Below are some of the best infinity pools in Spain and its islands.
1. The Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel – Tenerife, Canary Islands (main picture)
If you find yourself in the Canary Islands, head south to stay at the superb Roca Nivaria, a location perfect for couples and families alike. The resort features two infinity pools, one saltwater and heated year-round, the other freshwater and with an open air Jacuzzi. The pool’s edges perfectly align with the hotel’s stunning ocean views, so it looks as if you could swim right into the sea.
2. W Barcelona – Barcelona, Catalunya
After touring the Sagrada Familia, relax poolside at the W Barcelona, a sleek hotel located flush against the coastline. The infinity pool shimmers under the city lights at night, and the WET Deck area is a sun-trap for tanning and lounging on plush furniture during the day.
3. Hotel Hacienda Na Xamena – Ibiza, Balearic Islands
Nestled among the cliffs of Ibiza, the Hotel Hacienda Na Xamena offers quiet solace from the nonstop parties the rest of the island is known for. Treat yourself to a massage at the hotel’s excellent spa, La Posidonia, or try a hydrotherapy session at their multi-leveled infinity pool, complete with waterfalls and massage jets.
4. Jumeirah Port de Soller Hotel & Spa – Mallorca, Balearic Islands
If you need a break from the crowds, try taking a dip in the Jumeirah Port de Soller Hotel’s simple yet oh-so-elegant infinity pool. Another great place to bring the kids, this resort features multiple pools to keep them entertained for hours, while parents can recover with a spa treatment or poolside cocktails, complete with stunning views of the Mallorca coast and Balearic Sea.
