Famous Infinity Pools in Kerala

An Infinity Pool seems to have no edges. It gives a virtual effect of water extending to horizon. The reflecting edges are so devised that an impression is created about the water reaching up to an infinity. In simple words, an infinity swimming pool is so constructed that the person using it will have the feeling of water extending and vanishing up to the horizon. That is why such pools are also called zero edge pools. These pools create visual effects. These may be made by the side of a hill and give the effect of the pool merging with the sky. These can be made to give a virtual vanishing reality into a lake or an ocean. It has become almost a necessary amenity in resorts and high class hotels. The 5 such infinity pools of Kerala are given below.

The Leela Kovalam Beach Hotel
