Bali has many beaches and oceans, but there are other places to soak in and indulge yourself. Hotels, restaurants, and resorts in Bali are in a tight race to create the best swimming pools for tourists and what are we to do but enjoy the best of them? Check out the best swimming pools in Bali below.

1. Hanging Gardens of Bali

This peaceful nook proves that Bali is more than just a place to visit beautiful and energetic beaches, but also a tranquil paradise to connect with your soul and nature. Both TripAdvisor and Condé Nast Traveller have awarded the Hanging Gardens of Bali as one of the best swimming pools in the world, but if you don’t want to just take their word for it, hear us out. As the name suggests, dipping in this pool means soaking yourself in the lush greenery of the gardens and jungle around it. The unrestricted view of tall trees and neat vegetation, soothing sounds of water, fresh scent from the pristine air, and riverside massage service all conspire to give you the best all-sensory relaxation.

2. Woobar, The W Retreat and Spa

There are so many things to love about this beachside bar and swimming pool, including the amazing horizon view and lively atmosphere. Whether you want to go swimming or just hang out to retire those tired toes from walking around the city, the Woobar will welcome you all the same, with a mouth-watering menu, fresh drinks, vibrant colors, and a divine view of the Seminyak beach. Upon purchasing a drink, visitors can plunge into Woobar’s gorgeous pool for free.

3. Jungle Fish

Far from Bali’s buzzing bar scene and seemingly unaffected by the whole world’s affairs, Jungle Fish is the ultimate nature getaway for serenity-seekers. The self-proclaimed “no beach…beach club” is like the green and calmer version of the vibrant beachside pools where visitors can bathe in the fresh water, warm sunshine, clear jungle air, or all three at once. The lavish pool is a part of the Chapung Se Bali Resort & Spa, but non-staying visitors can enjoy the much-loved facility at a separate rate.
