Nothing makes a vacation cooler more than a resort with a stunning pool. Whether you seek a refreshing reprieve from the intense summer sun, a tranquil place to lounge or a bass-thumping evening social scene, a beautiful hotel pool can do it all.

From Bali to Bermuda, these hotel pools are so breathtaking and enticing that they alone warrant a trip.
