The Most Instagrammable Hotel Pools

Picture this.

Terre Blanche Resort, Provence

Nestled high in the hills of the Cote d’Azure commanding striking panoramic views over the surrounding Provencal landscape, the 600m² infinity pool at Terre Blanche is the crowning jewel of the five star resort. Overlooking perched medieval villages and rolling vineyards, the pool is heated to a cocooning warmth of 28 degrees centigrade, producing an ethereal steam which rises in the mornings and evenings.

Odyssey at Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, Monaco

Odyssey, a heated sea-water pool is surrounded by a bespoke mural by Karl Lagerfeld. As the place to see and be seen among Monaco’s elite, the hotel lends itself to be both an oasis of tranquillity and a magical evening destination where design, cuisine and glamour intertwine with underwater lights that mirror the night’s sky.

Blue Palace Resort & Spa, Crete

Breath-taking views of the Aegean Sea and Spinalonga Island, a national monument of Greece, make each of the 142 private infinity pools of Blue Palace the ultimate Insta-worthy location. Not only do you have the ability to sight-see from your pool, but you have complete privacy in which to take those effortless looking (but labour intensive) holiday snaps. With fragrant indigenous gardens throughout, the five star family run resort is also host to its own private beach and beach club, a variety of authentic F&B outlets and award-winning Elounda Spa located on the beachfront.

La Réserve, St-Jean-de-Luz

Unveiling its newly designed clifftop infinity pool, with breath-taking panoramic views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Basque coastline, La Réserve’s two tiered pool is picture perfect. This charming hotel, owned by luxury hotel group Groupe Floirat (who also own Hotel Byblos in Saint Tropez) has revealed its ‘pièce de resistance’, with one side gently cascading into the next, highlighting the resort’s peaceful ambience, as an idyllic location for a revitalising getaway.
