From Tranquil Desert Eco Enclaves to Cliffhanger Hotels

These infinity pool innovations span the luxury swimming haven that has more names than you can remember. Zero edge, vanishing edge, negative edge and disappearing edge pool are just some of the labels that these babies are known as. There's something about an infinity pool that conjures up plain ol' money (and hey, new money, too). But the architectural, technological, structural and mechanical needs of these infinity pool innovations are expensive, which accounts for not simply the idea of luxury, but the price.

From tranquil desert eco enclaves to cliffhanger hotels and cityscape infinity pools, float away -- literally -- with these breathtaking creations from all over the world. While many infinity pools are found at resorts in less-industrialized countries and look over the ocean, the Marina Bay Sands pool in Singapore overlooks bright lights and skyscrapers. And that's just one example.
