Hotel Pools with Awe-Inspiring Views

At many hotels in spectacular locations, the pools are positioned to provide the best possible views of the surrounding scenery. They’re often the star attraction of the property, and as we confirmed recently, Tablet users can’t get enough of them.

Not long ago, we collected the most-liked photos from our Instagram feed and asked you to vote for your favorites. In return, we vowed to give you more stories full of photos just like the winner. Well, the results are in, and you made one thing crystal clear: you love photographs of impressively perched hotel pools. So, as promised, here’s exactly that.
