Infinity pools are inherently luxurious. The cost of building an infinity swimming or reflecting pool is far more expensive than other styles of pools that you may find in backyards. This is because  an infinity pool produces a visual illusion of the water extending into the horizon.

Infinity pools are also known as “zero edge”, “disappearing edge”, or “negative edge” pools because of this feature. However, this visual effect requires a lot of structural, mechanical, and architectural detail to be paid to its design. Many of the infinity pools in this collection are located at luxury resorts around the world, but a few are located at residential homes.

An infinity pool is a beautiful way to add value to the home, and we hope you’ll enjoy these incredible examples!

This large patio and pool complex has a complicated layout. Part of the patio is in limestone tile, and has lighted steps.

The middle wooden platform looks like it's floating, but is actually built around already existing palm trees. The infinity pool loops around all of these obstacles for a very natural look.
