An infinity edge pool also goes by the name of negative edge, zero edge, infinity pool, disappearing edge, or vanishing edge pool. Infinity pools are simply swimming pools which give the illusion that they go on into the horizon, as if they go on forever. In reality, the water flows over one or more edges creating this ‘vanishing’ effect. The infinity pool design concept is said to have originated in France, where one of the first vanishing edge designs was utilized in the “Stag Fountain” at the Palace of Versailles in the early 1600s.

Relaxing in this utter luxury is not cheap. Infinity pools are very expensive and require extensive structural, mechanical (hydraulic engineering) and architectural detailing. You will mostly run into these types of marvels at exotic resorts, exclusive estates, in advertisements and in other luxurious places. Lusting at these stunning images creates a desire for one. Below we have listed thirty jaw dropping infinity pools for your inspiration. Enjoy!
