The swimming pools are the place to rest and taste the relaxation that surrounds you. Many people have swimming pools in their yards. Hotels offer swimming pools as an incentive for their guests. Around the world resorts, hotels and even individuals are trying to get to jump on the largest pools in the world. Here is a list of the 8 largest swimming pools in the world.
San Alfonso del Mar Resort, Chile
This is one of the largest pools in the world. It covers an area of 20 acres and contains 66 million gallons of water.
It was named in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest pool in the world. This large pool uses a computer-controlled filtration and suction system, which keeps the fresh sea water in continuous circulation.
The pure clear lagoon in Chile's San Alfonso del Mar resort has the first record in Guinness World Records as the world's largest man-made swimming pool (about 6,000 in the backyard) before being discarded by its Egyptian cousin.
Located near Santiago, the lake simulates the ideal beaches in the area with salt water made of torrents that are always kept on a few degrees from the ocean. Think of this pool as a small Caribbean escape on the coast of central Chile.
Crystal Lagoon, Egypt
Top of the list is Egypt's main crown pool, the 1.3 million sq ft crystal lake built as part of the luxury tourism development in Sharm el-Sheikh in the middle of the Egyptian desert.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the saltwater swimming pool is the largest recorded crystal lake - its natural white sandy beaches cover 27 times larger than a football field.
Surprisingly, the pool has praised its eco-friendly design - the pool's operating system helps desalination efforts in the region.
MahaSamutr's home in Thailand also features a very exclusive country club and a series of luxury villas, which is large enough for sailing.
First of all, it's great - the lake stretches with eight football fields - but what makes this water spot really stand out is its range.
While some of the lakes mimic some of the sandy beaches in the area, other areas have a traditional pool-like atmosphere.
The MahaSamutr is only 8 meters away at the deepest point and offers its members their own sea, making it perfect for boats and water sports and activities.
LAS BRISAS, CHILE
Part of the Las Brisas luxury condominium complex, the five-acre saltwater swimming pool may look small compared to other already listed, but it is almost like 16 Olympic- sized pools.
Like other large swimming pools, the Las Brisas Bath overlooks the Pacific Ocean and its bright blue colour is often brighter than blue compared to the real thing just a stone's throw away.
