The sheer bliss of dipping your pedicured toes into the immaculate waters of a private pool is just incomparable, especially in tropical climates. With luxury villa rentals, privacy is a guaranteed luxury and this extends all the way through the property and down to the most amazing pools.
The Oxford Dictionary defines an infinity pool as:
in|fin|ity pool: a swimming pool whose positioning gives the impression that it merges into the surrounding landscape, especially the sea.
Well, we think that the majority of our exotic pools within our Luxury Villa Collection in St Barts more than meet this criteria. Transforming a casual dip to an all-out luxury is a difficult feat, but each imaginative use of external architecture tempts even the beginner.
So, future guests, grab your swimwear, don your most fabulous shades and get intimate with your camera as you enjoy some of the most compelling contemporary pools and panoramas in the Caribbean…
