Located in Brussels, Belgium, Nemo 33 is the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world, with a maximum depth of 34.5 metres (113 ft). Numerous underwater windows allow outside visitors to look into the pools at various depths. There are two large flat-bottomed areas reaching depth levels of 5m (16 ft) and 10m (32 ft), and a large circular pit plunging to a distance of 33m (108 ft). At the 10m mark are also featured several simulated underwater caves. Nemo 33 was designed by Belgian expert diver John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational, and film production complex.

This 500-sq.-meter (about 5,382 square feet) head-turner was built on a hill, so there’s plenty of natural ventilation, and with the dining room cascading into the pool area.  This region of Colombia is known for its warm weather and abundant bamboo. The French windows are designed to generate a nice mix of indoor/outdoor air flow, and the white-on-white color scheme is meant to showcase the natural green and artworks on the property.

Alila Villas Uluwatu – Bali

Eco luxury does not get any better than this. The Singapore based Alila brand has a firm grasp of what it takes to do it right. It is a brand to watch in the coming years with 20 new properties launching in Asia as well as Portugal. Uluwatu is only 30 minutes from the airport (depending on traffic) and does indeed have the same WOW effect as Soori. Stunning views, cliff-top balconies overlooking the ocean, beautifully designed villas with their own pool and decking, indoor and outdoor showers and just space. They understand space. They design spaces that make you immediately feel you are not “in Kansas” any more. It is unlike anything we run into in our everyday lives, or even in our customary luxury moments.

The ‘New’ House Pool.


Italian company Kos presented new concept of in-house pool named Faraway Pool.  Guaranteed to add a unique, inviting touch to any home, the Faraway Pool can be built in to the floor.  The pool is always in level with the floor and the water doesn’t overflow, thanks to the ground-level fissure that doubles the pool’s outline.  To top that, the Faraway Pool features underwater illumination, which will make for a truly romantic experience.  Added to its beauty is the blower placed under the steps that allows the water surface to ripple beautifully over the entire pool.  An object of great emotional impact, for infinitely pleasurable moments. Pricing is available on request from the company.
