There is something pretty special about a holiday that features a hotel with a magnificent pool, but there is something truly magical about a holiday that features a stunning natural pool. News.com.au takes a look at some of the world's best:
Ik Kil, Cenote, Mexico
Known as the "Sacred Blue Cenote", this mystical sinkhole has to be seen to be felt. The walk to the cavern tells you you are in for a treat and the vines and vegetation of the area all add to the mysteriousness of the pool.
The shallow pools of "cotton castle" have tight security, but if you are lucky enough to go for a dip you can't help but marvel at the incredible formations of rock moulded by the hot springs of south-western Turkey.
Dean's Blue Hole, Bahamas
Dean's Blue Hole is a favourite for those who love free diving. It plunges to a depth of 650 feet in a bay west of Clarence Town on Long Island and the colourful fish make it an incredible snorkelling experience.
