Nothing beats the heat better than a dip in a cool pool. We splashed through our villa collection to find the best pools for you. Whether your preference is for plunge, infinity-edge, swim-up bars, jacuzzis on the side, a lagoon-style pool in a jungle setting or a lap pool in a traditional Balinese compound, there’s sure to be just the pool for you among our favourites.
Villa Asta – perfect for family fun and pool parties
This dramatic free-form swimming pool is right at the villa’s heart. There’s shallow tiers for wallowing and a deep section for taking dips from a diving platform. And next to the master bedroom pavilion, the 12-metre plunge pool is an extra bonus.
