Watching the sun set in an exotic, luxurious location surrounded by your loved ones is one of life’s greatest pleasures.

The One&Only Reethi Rah hotel boasts a 30m lap pool with a carved stone bed that merges with the sea. In addition, there’s an internal Jacuzzi.

If guests get bored with that, there’s also a PADI National Geographic dive centre, sun spa and 12 beaches.

2) The Other Side, Eleuthera, Bahamas

The Bahamas has long-been the destination of choice for well-heeled travellers in need of some sun.

The Other Side’s stunning jetty pool seems to stretch on forever into the turquoise ocean.

Duly relaxed, guests in search of excitement need only hop aboard a speedboat destined for nearby Harbour Island.

3) King Street Townhouse, Manchester, UK

Okay, so Manchester may not immediately spring to mind when choosing a luxury holiday location.

However, the rooftop spa pool on the seventh-floor of the King Street Townhouse is also a giant Jacuzzi.

Moreover, it affords visitors breathtaking views of the football-mad city’s “ruggedly handsome” skyline.

4) Borgo Pignano, Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany remains one of the world’s most popular holiday hot spots – and the view from the hotel Borgo Pignano truly does it justice.

As such, guests at the 18th-century villa can enjoy the surrounding 750-acre estate from a pool carved from an ancient limestone quarry.

5) Tri, Sri Lanka

Luxury and boutique hotel website Mr & Mrs Smith describes Tri as “a new breed of sustainable luxury hotel on Sri Lanka’s finest lake”.

In addition to yoga and Ayurveda treatments, the infinity pool offers panoramic views across Lake Koggal and surrounding jungle.

6) Tierra Atacama Hotel & Spa, Chile

Wow. Relaxing in a sun lounger next to the weed-fringed pool at this remote hotel is worth the price of the airline ticket alone.

Moreover, the view takes in Licancabur volcano – or you can simply gaze at the star-filled sky.

7) Hotel Pleta De Mar, Mallorca, Spain

What could be nicer then a trip to the Balearic island of Mallorca? Answer: relaxing in a unique pool that curves round the rocky Mallorquín coast.
