You have to be a Soho House member to gain entry to this one, but when the pool looks like this, it’s probably worth it.

Borgo Pignano, Tuscany

Overlooking the Tuscan hills, this picturesque pool is no ordinary hotel hideaway. There are 750 acres to explore here, from the impeccably-converted 18th century villa.

Soneva Jani, Maldives

Each over-water villa here has its own private pool, if the idyll of the Indian Ocean isn’t enough beauty already.

Singita Lebombo Lodge, South Africa

It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that you’ll share a dip here with one of the locals (of the elephant variety).

Qualia, Queensland, Australia

In the Whitsunday Islands, qualia is one of the most luxurious lodges in Australia. The resort is accessed via Jurassic Park style gates, and the infinity pool is the resort’s pièce de résistance.

Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Italy 

On Lake Como, the hotel is, as the name suggests, grand and elegant, steeped in history. Head for the water-on-water floating pool on the lake, it’s right by the Champagne bar…
