As the new year has kicked off, many are quick to try to beat the Winter blues by getting their holidays booked, with 31% booking early to get the best price – according to ABTA. Having a luxurious pool to relax in and to get the perfect picture for the ‘gram is an appeal for most holidaymakers.
So, knowing where to find the best ones always helps when planning a getaway.
With rooftop infinity pools and post-card-worthy views in mind, where are the world’s most Instagrammable dips?
From Dubai to Singapore, Comparethemarket has compiled a list of the top 20 most Instagrammed swimming pools, to inspire you for your next relaxing break to ease off of all your stress.
Taking the top spot in the ranking is a pool that is on the 77th floor of the magnificent Address Beach Resort in Dubai. At 964 feet above ground level, bathers can take in the panoramic views over Dubai, to spot sights like the Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeira.
The second most snapped pool is in the popular and beautiful city-state of Singapore, with the 57th-floor infinity pool at Marina Sands Bay proving to be a dreamlike backdrop with 88,622 posts using the #marinabaysandshotel hashtag.
Singapore also hosts another top poolside spot, with the infinity pool at Park Royal (on Pickering) coming in at 14th in the ranking.
The third most insta-worthy poolside destination with 35,176 posts using the #twahotel! is the distinctive pool at the TWA Hotel, which gives tourists the chance to plane-spot while they swim. Located at a decommissioned airport terminal in Utah, USA, this location gives guests a unique experience in itself.
The UK is also home to many picturesque pools of its own, with Cameron House in Loch Lomond, The Balmoral in Edinburgh and King Street Town House in Manchester all making it into the top 20 rankings.
Commenting on the research, Anna McEntee, director at Comparethemarket, says: “For holidaymakers looking for a trip with a touch of luxury, finding somewhere with an amazing pool can really add that wow factor.”
“While the right travel insurance policy can cover lost, stolen, or damaged personal possessions, you probably won’t be covered if you leave your belongings unattended, so ensure your stuff is stored securely if you head over to the pool for a dip.”
“If you do happen to fall victim to theft, it’s important to report it to the police as soon as possible, as some insurance providers require you to have done so within 24 hours for your claim to be valid.”
