This is summer time in most of the world and many places are reeling under tremendous a heat wave. Temperatures in North India, for example, have touched over 51 Celsius! In such a weather, there is nothing like a swimming pool. So, we went looking for the dream destinations for pools that make us drool! Some of these are just mindbogglingly amazing places.

#3: Ubud Hanging Gardens Hotel, Bali
Truly spectacular multi-level pool set amongst the rice fields of Central Bali in the Ayung River valley at theUbud Hanging Gardens Hotel.
It is said that the pool mimics the shape and beauty of the hills nearby. You can swim along the edge and enjoy the ancient Pura Penataran Dalem Segara temple view just behind the pool.
#4: Nandana Villa, Grand Bahama, Bahamas
This pool, very minimalistics in its entire set up and layout gets dramatic as it seems to suddenly drop into the Atlantic suddenly. The pool area has just half a dozen teak sun beds and a few palms.

The Infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands hotel – designed by architect Moshe Safdie – is the highest such pool in the world. It towers over at a height of 650 ft (200 m) above the ground over three skyscrapers this 492 ft (150 m) pool stretches across Sands Skypark giving an amazing view of the city state.
