Default A Pool with a view

I was working in a hotel yesterday that offered free access to the local pool for its guests. Picture attached I was glad I went and it was filtered sea water too.

Its a whole spa and water leisure complex but does also have a 25m pool for local competitions. Location Lyngdal Norway.

Please post your favourite Pool with a view.

Andy,
That's pretty cool!...My local YMCA pool can't compete with that..water is water though..I'm just thankful aesthetics doesn't effect my swimming

Default Kitsilano pool in Vancouver

Hi Andy
The Kitsilano Pool in Vancouver is a salt water, heated pool that is approximately 130 meters in length and with lots of width. I swam in it over ten years ago and have never made it back since. What a luxury to swim unobstructed and in comfort.
Could not find a photo to give you a sense of it. Your example is outstanding.

Here is a pool in Singapore that goes from one roof of the hotel to the other.

This one doesn't stand up well to comparisons, but I did a lot of swimming here in my boyhood:

Not a match to the hotel pool Andy posted; but the view out the windows is always nice on a sunny day and during a snow storm it is especially pleasant. Now if they would only install a fireplace in the corner near the windows in the distance at the right of the picture, the coziness level would soar ! This is the Canada Games Center pool in Halifax, N.S.

There must be many more pools with a view out there..... but here is where I'll be spending most of my summer swim time. Located on the shores of Bedford Basin, it opened today and I had my first 90 minute swim for the summer this afternoon. I'm a happy swimmer ! :-) On a sunny day this is a lovely spot as the sailboats sail past.
