How many times do you browse through hotel websites and check out their pool? So here in a nutshell – too sumptuous for words, too sexy for imagination, these swimming pools with a view will leave you wanting more…

A gorgeous luxury boutique hotel located on one of Phuket’s private beaches, Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga is superb. Soak up the sun!

Nestled in Intendance Bay with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean, one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, the Banyan Tree hotel and spa resort in Seychelles provides a rare taste of paradise.

Bliss! Paradise ! Heaven on earth ! That’s all I need to say about the Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru. I could live there all year round.

This is a dream design boutique hotel with a swimming pool to die for … A new resort in Santorini overlooking the famed caldera and the Aegean Sea, this is simply irresistable.

And to end my mouthwatering series of best pools with a view, I of course must include Pangkor Laut Resort – a small private island in north-west Malaysia – it’s home away from home.
So the next time you’re hunting for the super swimming pool with a killer view – look no further than here! 🙂
I decided to walk down memory lane with this post – to tell you about the most wonderful time of my life living in Barcelona for 2 years. If you watch the film Vicky Cristina Barcelona, you’ll understand how delightful and charming this cosmopolitan city really is. I enrolled at the Gran Universitat de Catalunya for Castellano classes, I was offered an internship at BDDP advertising agency and time just flew by. My 1st year was spent living near the chic Avenida Diagonal (not far from Barca’s Camp Nou), 2nd year just off Las Ramblas in a residencia – my experience couldn’t be more diversified.
So here are some tips of places I enjoyed to go during my Iberian adventure:
So here’s hoping you’ll have a most fantastic time in Barcelona. I for one, have the most fondest memories. One useful phrase in Catalan: “no parla catala”. I don’t speak Catalan.
