A true escape
What if you could get away from it all, including the land? Imagine enjoying your morning coffee as dolphins and tropical fish frolic around you or elephants bathe themselves in the warmth of the rising sun. At night, there will be nothing to block the colours of the sun as they spread across the infinity of the sky. Perhaps you’ll take it in from the waters of your own private plunge pool. Whether you’re planning your future holiday or just daydreaming, all this, and more is possible in these incredible overwater resorts.

Speaking of pools, you’ll want to take a dip into these amazing pools from around the world.
