Prestigious travel and leisure magazine Condé Nast Traveler has elected the swimming pool at The Yeatman hotel in Vila Nova de Gaia as one of the world’s twelve most beautiful.

“This luxury wine hotel boasts the largest collection of Portuguese wines in the world, so it’s only fitting the infinity pool is shaped like a decanter. The heated pool looks over the UNESCO World Heritage city of Oporto” the magazine writes, adding: “The pool lounge offers snacks by Executive Chef Ricardo Costa, and a staircase off the surrounding sun terrace allows for easy access to the largest garden in the city.”
Competition on the list of the ‘World’s 12 most head-turning infinity pools’ was fierce and included hotel pools overlooking jungle, creeks, and in one case, a Balinese temple.
Among these were the cliff-top infinity pool at the luxury four-star Reefs hotel and club, in Southampton (Bahamas), the beachfront infinity pools at the Grand Velas Riviera Maya resort, Mexico, the heated, saline infinity pool at the Vail Cascade resort in Colorado (the only infinity-edge pool in Vail that overlooks Gore Creek), the infinity pool at Ubud Hanging Gardens (Bali, Indonesia), a two-level pool, lined with Batu Chandi volcanic stone which sits suspended above a tropical rainforest and overlooks a Balinese temple, and the infinity pool at Sanctuary Swala in the Tarangire National Park (Tanzania), which sits directly in front of a watering hole frequented by lions, leopards, and resident elephants.
