Swimming in outdoor pool is what most of us die for. But, nothing can beat the surreal experience of swimming in an infinity pool, a water body that merges effortlessly into surrounding natural landscapes without clear cut edges. Here, the visual effect of the water reaching out to horizon and vanishing to infinity is a sight to behold forever. Infinity pools are set either in the midst of mountains or rainforest or right in front of a beach or harbour. They are dreamlike, they are fulfilling, they are absolutely pristine, they lead to an outright surreal experience. Many luxury hotels have adopted the concept of infinity pools, just to render a sweet refreshing touch to vacation.
