TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - When planning your next vacation, aside from thinking about top sites or beaches, you may want to consider choosing the right accommodation that can soothe your soul. And a hotel or resort is not complete without an amazing swimming pool, something often overlooked when people choose their overnight destinations. 


The following are the top three hotels with unique and fabulous swimming pools recommended by the September 2013 edition of Travelounge magazine. 

Ubud Hanging Gardens
Desa Buahan, Payangan, Ubud, Bali

Swimming in this pool makes it seem like you are swimming while floating in the sky due its location on the edge of a cliff. After practicing a few strokes, you can float at the edge of the pool while enjoying the incredible tropical view of Bali’s mountains and valleys surrounding the hotel.

Swim while enjoying a view of the beach and Mount Rinjani at The Lombok Lodge. The pool was purposely designed to face the ocean and mountain. At sunset, you can delight in the amazing image of fading sun rays falling on the extravagant mountain and white sand beach, not to mention the beautiful blue ocean.


Padma Hotel
Jalan Ranca Bentang 56-58, Ciumbuleuit, Bandung

Located just a few hours from the nation’s capital, the Padma Hotel in Bandung offers a swimming pool directly facing the hills surrounding the city. The five star hotel’s three pools seem boundless once you lay your eyes upon them there is no visible borders making it feel like you can swim endlessly around the globe.


The hotel has three 20 x 5 meter pools for adults and one 3 x 6 meter pool for children. Not up for a swim? You can also relax in the open air Jacuzzi while enjoying the night’s cool breeze.
