Best pools in the world

Best pools in the world

When the sun plunges below the gilded horizon, dusk falls over the Meradhoo island of the Maldives and the heavens come alive with millions of stars.

Here, on this remote atoll in the middle of the Indian Ocean, far from modern development, these stars are clearly visible against the dark cobalt sky, as they have been since time immemorial. Inspired by the brilliance of the Milky Way, the designers at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi reflected the majesty of the stars in the waters of the resort’s main pool, scattering the floor with twinkling lights.

Named one of the world’s best pools by Conde Nast Traveller, a moonlit dip is made all the more special as the infinity pool’s water seems to blend seamlessly with the magical waters of the Indian Ocean.
