With stunning views and their ability to blur the line between the man-made and the natural, there’s so much more to do than just swimming in an infinity pool

While infinity pools seem like a modern phenomenon, they’re actually believed to have first been created in France in the early 1400s. Even so, it’s only recently they’ve become a staple of five-star hotels. Offering picture-postcard ocean views and a luxury swimming environment, here are five of the best around.

Set on a landscaped private island, the high-end Taj Exotica Resort & Spa boasts luxurious villas with ocean views. Guests staying in the Rehendi Presidential Suite can swim laps in the Maldivian sunshine and enjoy uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean in their personal infinity pool – like something out of a James Bond film.

Four Seasons Resort Maui – Wailea, Hawaii

Ahhhh-- Aloha Friday! Thank you @conradstn for this photo!

Shielded by palm trees and appearing to merge into the ocean, Four Seasons Resort Maui’s infinity pool will leave you lost for words. You’ll be able to take in views of the neighbouring island Lanai, as well as Kahoolawe – Hawaii’s smallest volcanic island. It’s so irresistibly tranquil, you’ll almost be kept away from Wailea Beach, which is a 9-minute walk away, and the nearby Wailea Golf Club.

As well as offering wonderful ocean views, its delicately curved lagoon-style infinity pool allows guests to stretch out and swim for hours on end.
