Is there anything better than relaxing in an infinity pool after a day of exploring cosmopolitan Melbourne? If you’re looking for the city’s most luxurious and breathtaking pools, we have you covered. Check out the best infinity pools in Melbourne, from St Kilda to the heart of the city.
Crown Promenade is one of the three hotels that are part of the Crown Melbourne casino complex, alongside Crown Metropol and Crown Towers. Crown Promenade has a variation of guest rooms, which are all outfitted with original art from local artists. Located on level three is The Deck, which includes a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a 25-metre indoor infinity pool. The stunning pool is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, so you can comfortably sit inside and look out at the incredible Melbourne skyline views.
The Pool Deck at Adelphi Hotel has a very unique swimming pool. The Denton Corker Marshall-designed heated infinity pool has a glass-bottomed, cantilevered section that actually protrudes two metres beyond the building’s periphery. Guests can hover above Flinders Lane and even make eye contact with pedestrians nine stories below. The gravity-defying swimming pool is the jewel in Adelphi’s crown. Fortunately, members of the public can access the pool without being a guest, for a daily fee.
Imagine Marco is a great apartment option for couples, friends and families visiting Melbourne. It’s home to 176 one- and two-bedroom apartments, which include spacious living areas and self-contained kitchens. After a day of exploring, take a dip in the 12-metre heated outdoor infinity pool at Imagine Marco. Thanks to its Southbank location, guests have perfect city skyline views from inside the pool. There are also lounge chairs available beside the pool.
181 Fitzroy Street in St Kilda is a residential building that’s home to 151 stylish apartments, including an exclusive penthouse. It was completed in December 2016 and includes one of the most breathtaking infinity pools. The large outdoor pool features views of Albert Park, St Kilda, the ocean and the city skyline. If you can manage to leave the pool, it’s surrounded by a deck with barbecue facilities and built-in tables and chairs. Although it’s located in a residential building, there are several apartments available for temporary stays on websites like Airbnb and Hotels.com, so you can enjoy this infinity pool for yourself.
Crown Metropol is Crown Promenade’s younger sibling, as it opened its doors in 2010. With a whopping 658 rooms, it’s one of Australia’s largest hotels. The sophisticated and stylish five-star property obviously wouldn’t be complete without an infinity pool. It trumps its sibling as its pool is located on the 27th floor. The 25-metre indoor infinity pool is heated to a perfect 28 degrees year-round as well. From its premier upper floor position, the Melbourne city and Yarra River views from the pool (and its large poolside daybeds) are unparalleled.
