In the latest of our travel journals, we’ve teamed up with Quintessentially Travel, the luxury travel experts who bring you the finest travel experiences, anywhere in the world. Whilst at Bowler & Beach HQ we are still holding on to a beautiful end to the summer, we thought we’d help those of you who already have your sights set on some winter sun and ask Quintessentially Travel to hand-pick five of the world’s best pool resorts to inspire your next escape, whatever you are looking for…

Longing for an iconic lakeside retreat to relax and reflect?

Grand Tremezzo

Grand Hotel Tremezzo

Located on the iconic and widely celebrated Lake Como, the exclusivity and proximity of this hotel could not get any better. And there’s no better way to experience the views than by taking a dip in their show-stopping swimming pool; resting on the lake’s surface and directly facing Bellagio, you’ll want for nothing all day. 

Dreaming of sensational sunsets from your own private pool?

Alila Villas Uluwatu - Hero

Alila Villas Uluwatu, Bali

Poised on an elevated plateau, the 50-metre, cliff-edge pool and overhanging Sunset Cabana are just two of the reasons why Alila Villas Uluwatu is nothing short of impressive. The all-pool resort also allows every guest to enjoy lazing in their own private pool and cabana, overlooking the Indian Ocean. 

Wishing for rooftop views over Rio and world-class live entertainment?

Fasano Pool Night

Hotel Fasano, Rio de Janeiro

Designed by Philippe Starck and Rogerio Fasano, this hotel boasts spectacular views of Ipanema Beach from its rooftop infinity pool. Don’t leave without visiting Baretto-Londra, the hotel’s bar, named number one in the world for its live performances and expertly crafted cocktails.

Seeking a sundeck and spa with sensational views over Sydney?

Park Hyatt, Sydney

Park Hyatt, Sydney

Iconic amongst Sydney hotels, Park Hyatt’s outstanding views are second to none. Offering 155 rooms with floor-to-ceiling glass doors and private balconies, two waterfront restaurants, and a rooftop complete with a day spa, pool and sundeck, you’ll never forget your stay on the edge of Sydney Harbour.

And finally, what about a once in a lifetime island retreat?


Laucala, Fiji

A private island nestled in the heart of the Fijian Pacific archipelago, Laucala was created by the inventor of Red Bull. With 25 luxury residences, an 18-hole Championship Golf Course, a Submarine Super Falcon 402 and of course, the 5,000 square meter swimming pool with bar, this unspoilt destination is where anything is possible.    

That concludes our pick of the world’s top five pool resorts with the help of our friends at Quintessentially Travel. We certainly feel that any one of our Bowler & Beach swim shorts would look fantastic at any one of these resorts, so why not take a look at which pair – or pairs – you’d like to pack and then get in touch with QT by clicking here to book that next trip?!
