What makes a holiday really special? It is the unforgettable blue and turquoise tones of the water and the sky. Infinity pools are the best way to soak up this colour spectacle. So treat yourself to a hotel with an infinity pool, it’s worth it. I present to you the 13 best hotels with infinity pools, some of which even have private infinity pools. Most of the hotels are around the Mediterranean in Greece, Turkey, Spain and Croatia.
What is considered an infinity pool?
An infinity pool is a swimming pool with a very long, continuous edge. This edge can be straight or curved and the water may flow over it in one direction only (as in the case of a waterfall), or both ways (as in the case where the water flows over the edge at different speeds). The wall creates the illusion that the edge of the pool merges with the blue of the water or sky. The name “infinite” comes from the fact that there are no visible boundaries to the pool.
The most famous example of this type of pool is the infinity pool at the Bellagio Hotel on Las Vegas’s famed Strip.

Hotels with infinity pool in Croatia: TUI BLUE Jadran & TUI BLUE Makarska
The TUI BLUE Jadran is located on the Makarska Riviera right on the beach. One of the two pools is a rectangular infinity pool. The blue of the pool seems to merge with the sea and the sky. If you look away from the sea and turn around while standing in the pool, you can enjoy the natural beauty of the Biokovo mountains, which are over 1000 metres high. In addition to fantastic views, the hotel offers fantastic Dalmatian cuisine, a wide sports programme and swim-up rooms between palm trees. It is located directly on the Tucepi promenade, where you can find everything you could wish for on holiday, from water sports to ice cream parlours.
But would you rather have your own access to the infinity pool? Then you should book the swim-up room at the popular TUI BLUE Makarska hotel and enjoy the impressive views of the sea. Unlike the TUI BLUE Jadran, it’s an adults-only hotel.
Hotel with infinity pool in Turkey: TUI BLUE Seno
Isn’t this a stunning view? The fusion of pool and sky in the infinity relaxation pool is perfect. I visited the superbly rated TUI BLUE Seno hotel and it is definitely one of the most beautiful hotels with an infinity pool. It is spread over several levels above the beach of Sarigerme on the Turkish Aegean. By the way, you can take a sailboat to Baba Island, which you can see jutting out into the sea.
The TUI BLUE Seno is an adults-only hotel for wonderful hours for two – on its own beach, at the heavenly pools, in the spa, or in the romantic restaurant with excellent Turkish-Mediterranean cuisine. The hotel’s all-inclusive offer also includes a varied fitness programme and entertainment.
Hotels with infinity pool in Crete: TUI BLUE Elounda Village & TUI BLUE Insula Alba
The TUI BLUE Elounda Village in Crete is an infinity pool paradise! The hotel complex in the style of a Cretan village is situated on a slope above its own sandy beach. As a result, the choice of pools is spread out every few metres on different terraces and offers more than one stunning infinity pool with incredible views. The TUI BLUE Elounda Village is an adults-only hotel for guests aged 16 and over.
You should definitely treat yourself to a bungalow with private pool, which is of course also an infinity pool! If you ever manage to tear yourself away from the edge of your pool and the hypnotic view, it will only be to go to the spa or the restaurant serving Mediterranean Greek cuisine. Choose between half board and all-inclusive. The TUI BLUE Elounda Village is one of the most beautiful hotels on this list.
Another adults-only hotel with an infinity pool in Crete is the TUI BLUE Insula Alba. The 5-star resort is located directly on the beach in the north of Crete. The beachside infinity pools on several levels offer picturesque views of the sea.
You should definitely book a room or a suite with a swim-up pool or private pool, even if they are not necessarily infinity pools. For those seeking relaxation, I recommend booking all-inclusive meals at TUI BLUE Insula Alba. If you want to do a lot of excursions, half board at the hotel is more worthwhile. Afterwards, you can relax in the spa or enjoy live entertainment.
Hotels with infinity pool in Corfu: TUI BLUE Atlantica Grand Med Resort & TUI BLUE Nissaki Beach
In a picturesque bay on Corfu, the hotel complex nestles against the mountain. The best conditions for eye-widening sunset views! Admittedly, the photo is a bit kitschy. But isn’t that exactly the reason why we want to book a hotel with an infinity pool?
The TUI BLUE Atlantica Grand Med Resort is an adults-only hotel with 3 restaurants and 3 bars. Choose between half board, full board and all-inclusive. You can work off the calories with the wide range of fitness activities on offer. For a romantic moonlight swim, I recommend the rooms with a private infinity pool.
The TUI BLUE Atlantica Nissaki Beach is the second hotel with an infinity pool that I recommend to you in Corfu. It is also an adults-only hotel for guests aged 16 and over. To enjoy an infinity pool, you’ll need to book a double room or suite with a swim-up pool. It’s worth it: the view over the sea to the mainland is mesmerising. The 2 restaurants and bars will spoil you with all-inclusive delicacies of Greek, Mediterranean and international cuisine.
Hotel with infinity pool in Cyprus: TUI BLUE Atlantica Mare Village
At the family hotel TUI BLUE Atlantica Mare Village in Cyprus, it’s hard to know which infinity pool you want to dive into first to soak up the panorama. Prepare for amazing infinity pool shots: Private daybed with infinity pool, sipping cocktails at the bar by the infinity pool, lounging in the sun lounger between two curved infinity pools… Oh yes, the hotel is located directly at the sea and the city of Paphos is only a few kilometres away if you want to do something different 😉
If your children have just returned from the Kids Club, the splashing fun continues. Treat yourself to the swim-up family rooms with a gorgeous infinity pool. Did I forget anything? All-inclusive with 3 restaurants and 4 bars, with extra kids buffet, sports activities and entertainment for the whole family.
Hotel with infinity pool in Kos: TUI BLUE Atlantica Belvedere Resort
5 stars is what this adults-only hotel on Kos has and truly deserves. The TUI BLUE Atlantica Belvedere Resort is located on the south coast of the Greek island on a fine sandy beach. The resort is spread over several levels and is therefore predestined for a hotel with a lovely infinity pool.
Whether you’re having a drink or dinner, guests will never go hungry or thirsty looking out over the infinity pool. With half board or all-inclusive, 2 restaurants and 3 bars will spoil you. A spa, fitness classes and a relaxed entertainment programme await holidaymakers seeking relaxation.
Hotels with infinity pool on Zakynthos: TUI BLUE Caravel & TUI BLUE Zante Maris
Greece seems to be the Eldorado for hotels with infinity pools! I would also like to introduce you to two on Zakynthos. The TUI BLUE Caravel is a 5-star adults-only hotel with all-inclusive catering. The all-new modern-style hotel is blessed with multiple infinity pools that match that irrisistible Greek island colour scheme.
First and foremost are the swim-up rooms, which have infinity pools with breathtaking views of the sea. The colours alone are incredibly beautiful. Not to mention that the hotel has a spa, a sophisticated fitness programme and edutainment offerings (e.g. wine tastings) to offer.
The second hotel with an infinity pool on Zakynthos, is also a 5-star hotel for adults: the TUI BLUE Zante Maris. It is one of the most luxurious hotels on this list. The stylish interior tempts you to just lie down and enjoy life. But the best place to do that is by the beachfront infinity pool.
My tip: Treat yourself to a room with a swim-up pool. TUI BLUE Zante Maris also offers a wide range of all-inclusive meals, a spa and a large sports and entertainment programme.
Hotel with infinity pool in Spain: TUI BLUE Zahara Beach
Spain cannot be missing from the list of hotels with infinity pools. The TUI BLUE Zahara Beach is located directly on the wide sandy beach on the Costa de la Luz between Cadiz and Gibraltar. It boasts a rooftop infinity pool. It gets really romantic up here at the latest at sunset. By the way, the TUI BLUE Zahara Beach is an adults-only hotel, so it’s great for a holiday for two. Here, too, you can expect a sports programme, entertainment and edutainment, e.g. culinary courses. Surprise your sweetheart and book the double room with swim-up pool.
Hotel with infinity pool in the Maldives: TUI BLUE Olhuveli Romance
Last but not least, a hotel in the Maldives. Here, a hotel with an infinity pool is worthwhile all year round because it is always summer. The exclusive TUI BLUE Olhuveli Romance hotel has an infinity pool for everyone (photos not yet available as still under construction) and infinity pools at the water villas. Wouldn’t it be a dream to chill out in the private pool overlooking the Indian Ocean and take in the otherworldly scenery? The adults-only resort opens in July and will offer a spa and 5 restaurants, as well as a wide range of water sports.
