Coolest Pools on Earth

The only thing that really seems like a common trait from this list of the world's "best pools" is that they all offer locations to swim (and they're gorgeous). From this list, I think the Ritz-Carlton in Vienna seems like it'd offer the best swim of my life. Which do you like the best?

We're suckers for a beautiful hotel pool. That's why we've rounded up our favorites from this year's Hot List for your viewing pleasure.

The property feels more like a grand hotel in the great Central European tradition than part of a giant chain. While guests are often from the United States or the United Kingdom, in-the-know locals flock to the Dstrikt restaurant (run by celebrated city chef Wini Brugger) and the hotel's panoramic atmosphere rooftop bar (open in warm weather). The staff—from bellhops to concierges—are clued-in and attentive.
