5-Star Fabulous Pools
Bring the Luxury Home With Dolphin Robotics
By Christine G. Adamo
Going “5-Star Fabulous” is easier than you think!
Nestled among images of his growing family with wife Victoria (a savvy entrepreneur in her own right), U.K. football memorabilia and icons of every sort from fashion to philanthropy, David Beckham routinely posts photos from his travels—including his picks for best private swimming pool—to Instagram.
Sneak a peek and you’ll find several snaps of the celebrated athlete taking a dip in the 150-meter infinity pool at the 5-Star Marina Bay Sands luxury resort in Singapore. Which made us wonder. What do “5-Star Fabulous” pools worldwide have in common and how can you bring that level of luxury home?
5-Star Fabulous Pools
Beckham’s not the only fan of the Marina Bay Sands’ exclusive rooftop pool. ELLE Singapore and AFAR are just two publications which have featured its sparkling waters in pieces aimed at helping avid swimmers and sunbathers plan trips which promise the poolside experience of a lifetime.
Other 5-Star stunners include the seemingly boundless pool at Belmond Hotel Caruso—a converted 11th-century palace on Italy’s Amalfi Coast—and the mineral-rich waters of Colorado’s Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge. The latter is fed by a natural hot spring and puts a domestic U.S. getaway in easy reach.
5 Ways to Bring the Luxury Home
However spectacular those locales sound, being able to revel in luxury on your terms is why you own a pool in the first place. So treat yourself like a celebrity! We surveyed 5-Star pools worldwide and identified five trends that’ll turn swimming and sunning à la maison into a well-deserved VIP experience:
- Load an iPod with playlists for “Relaxing,” “Entertaining” and “Martini Time!”
- Take a cue from the Belmond and generously mist yourself with Evian.
- Replicate a Marina Bay main attraction—soak up sunsets poolside.
- Neatly stow a stack of opulent towels, in assorted sizes, nearby.
- Laze, lounge and let your Dolphin do the cleaning for you.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t share another little token of advice. As Master Architect Jean-Michel Gathy says, of designing world-class pools, “it’s actually more important to please the heart than the eye.” Translation? Leave pool envy to the amateurs and invest in your own oasis.
