When humidity levels surge and temperatures become unbearable, there’s nothing like a quick swim to cool you off during a business trip or vacation. Throw in scenic views, luxurious accommodations and ingenious design, and the pool becomes more than just a place to cool off.
It becomes a destination spot.
