The Most Exquisite Apartment Pools In The World

January 16, 2023

A pool has evolved to become a standard in luxury apartments across the world. Some have been elevated from their usual basement location to ground level or higher, allowing access to gardens and skyline views. Many are long enough for lap swimming, have beautiful finishes, and are flanked by lounge chairs.

The goal? Resort-style living spaces that aren’t just for show but places for human connection and everyday comfort. 

Take a look at our list of the top 5 resort-style apartment pools from around the world that nailed this:


Nine on the Hudson, New Jersey, USA

The modern development by K Hovnanian Homes also features communal areas with an outdoor lounge, a wet bar, and multiple fire pits as well as outdoor heaters.

Then there’s the infinity edge pool, which flows without interruption towards the world’s most famous skyline. It also includes a cozy hot tub.


Burj Khalifa, Dubai

Burj Club Pool party

The world’s tallest building, Dubai’s 160-story Burj Khalifa, features a premium health club – The Burj Club, which has two pool options: an Olympic-size indoor lap pool and an elegant outdoor pool surrounded by sun beds. Lounge around on one of these plush beds and you can enjoy the views of Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain. Once you’ve completed your workout and recovered by the pool, head over to the Rooftop Burj Club to enjoy the club’s international menu.

Residents can mingle with other locals at the Rooftop Pool on the third-floor terrace, adjacent to The Burj Club fitness facilities. It’s the setting for the new Rooftop Soiree at the Burj Club. From Wednesday to Friday, AED150 ($54) as of November 2022 gets you sunset access to the pool, where DJs and giant inflatables create a party atmosphere.

The European Bathhouse: Alden Park, Philadelphia, USA

Alden Park

Alden Park, one of Philadelphia’s finest apartment communities, spans 38 acres and is practically a neighbourhood in and of itself. This means it has enough space for an outdoor pool as well as an indoor swimming area, the latter of which will remind you of a luxurious European bathhouse.

The indoor pool at the apartment complex is as impressive as it gets, with poolside beds and lounge areas, and, to top it all off, the roof retracts so you can enjoy the view while swimming a lap or simply relaxing in the water.
