Among rocks, among palm trees or heated: original pools and where to find them

Long gone are the days when swimming pools were simple blue rectangles in which to seek refreshment on hot summer days. Today, the concept of a swimming pool has been completely revolutionized. Club Med, the leader in Premium All Inclusive vacations, knows this well, and in its resorts it offers the pool in an ever-original key, seeking harmony with the land and taking wellness and relaxation to a whole new level.

The most beautiful Club Med pools in the world

Zen pools, adults-only relaxation areas with private bars, indoor and outdoor pools, mountain-view Jacuzzis, pools carved out of Sicilian cliffs or under Caribbean coconut palms, you’re spoiled for choice at Club Med Resorts.

Privacy and comfort in Zen Oases, amidst the peace and quiet of a stay in nature

Natural areas within tourist facilities where you can immerse yourself in close contact with nature are becoming increasingly common. Sand and aquatic plants act as a natural filter to oxygenate and clean the water, maximizing the feeling of well-being.

These are true Zen Oases, for adults only, secluded from the center of the resort to ensure silence and privacy. These oases are designed for individual relaxation, as a couple or with friends, where chlorine-free natural pools are developed surrounded by unspoiled nature, offering a space for contemplation, silence and peace.

A natural oasis in the Madonie Mountains with a breathtaking pool overlooking the sea

Imagine being immersed in the blue Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by the Sicilian Madonie Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, rising imposingly above the bay of Cefalù. You are tired, you have spent a day enjoying the culture and beauty of Sicily, and you are looking forward to nothing more than jumping into the water and mentally recapping past adventures with a cocktail in hand.

Nothing better than theZen Oasis of Club Med Cefalù, the only one in the Club Med Exclusive Collection range in the Mediterranean, with a wonderful natural pool, reserved for adults only, that overlooks the Sea and a breathtaking landscape, and allows you to enjoy the sunset while gathering energy for a new exciting day in an undiscovered Sicily.

Among the Moroccan palm trees at Club Med Marrakech La Palmeraie

The warmth of the sun on your skin, the scent of orange blossoms and the sweet feeling of taking refuge in the shade of a palm tree after being in the sun. Club Med Marrakech La Palmeraie offers this and much more.

Guests in this space are treated to a zen pool where they can find their own serenity away from the rest of the resort and relax among the palm trees while enjoying the sunset and the warm hues with which it colors the surrounding landscape. The pool is also heated in the period from November to April.

Between the turquoise of the Indian Ocean and the green of the lush gardens surrounding La Plantation d’Albion, the first Club Med in the Exclusive Collection range, stands a stunning infinity pool, overlooking the lagoon and surrounded by rocks and nature, welcoming anyone seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle and stress.

At the end of the day, all that’s left is to return to one’s room, perhaps a Suite on the beach, just a short walk from the Resort, which offers the pleasantness of a “home away from home” and provides access to many personalized services to make your stay perfect and to take your mind off of everything.

The Dominican Republic, the cradle of fun and games for the whole family

Family pool, family restaurant, family suite, family activities. If you are looking for a family and child-friendly resort in an exceptional natural setting, Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda, the first fully Exclusive Collection resort in the Americas, offers a paradise for the little ones. There are two areas of this resort designed for families: Explorer Cove, for families with younger children or Caribbean Paradise for families with older children and teens.

On sunny days, the children’s pool, equipped with large water slides, water games and inflatable toys, is ideal for giving the little ones a chance to indulge in wild fun. And for adults, the perfect space is the Emerald Jungle, an area where the atmosphere is calm and peaceful, nestled in the midst of lush, tropical nature, where there is a Zen pool pool located next to the spa and fitness facilities, with bar seating inside so you can sip a cocktail right in the water.

Punta Cana Resort, on the other hand, is an all-inclusive resort for couples and families with unique activities along the fantastic beach overlooking turquoise waters. Featuring an exclusive circus playground, it offers adults-only spaces, several bars and restaurants including a Caribbean-style one right on the beach, and a spectacular Occitane Spa with ocean views.

The perfect pool in the mountains

Club Med not only offers exotic vacations under palm trees or with a sea view, but among its resorts it also has some of the most beautiful destinations in the mountains where you can spend a wellness vacation. The view of the mountains is a great source of motivation for avid swimmers, and the perfect escape from stress for anyone who wants to indulge in pleasure at the beautiful outdoor pool on one of Club Med La Rosière‘s terraces.

The large terrace, to which are added an indoor pool with large windows, two whirlpools and a shallow pool dedicated to children, is perfect for sunbathing and relaxing. And the views are breathtaking: on the slopes of Tarantasia, at an altitude of about 1950 meters, the resort offers incredible sunsets and views of the Vanoise National Park that invite contemplation of authentic nature.
