Best hotel design: IHG pool photos

Vacations are often synonymous with relaxing, beautiful pools. There’s an “ahhhhh” factor of being poolside with your beverage of choice and finding peaceful relaxation.

A hotel with a beautiful pool can offer that quiet oasis away from day-to-day life, creating an opportunity to unwind and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. And in many instances, great pools can also offer family memories, Instagram-worthy moments, fun with friends and even a little (gasp!) exercise.

In the third part of our hotel design series, here are a few of our many IHG pools that may inspire your next travel and find that moment where you truly relax and unwind.
