If your idea of an ideal vacation is lounging in an epic hotel pool, get ready to see one option that will blow your wildest fantasies out of the (ahem) water.
According to Million Dollar Listing New York’s Fredrik Eklund — who admits a great hotel pool actually turns him on — the largest pool in the world is big enough that it would spill over into Fifth Avenue if placed inside New York's Central Park. Where is it? Well, it's actually in South America.
In his new digital series, Million Dollar Listing's Ka-Ching!, Fredrik reveals that the largest pool in the world is at the San Alfonso del Mar down in Chile. Fredrik explains that the "grand daddy of them all" is more than 3,3000 feet long, and costs $4 million annually to maintain. And if that sounds like a lot, consider that it cost a whopping $1.5 billion to create!
By the way? For those keeping score at home, Fredrik says the deepest pool in the world is at the Hotel Millepini Terme in Montegrotto Terme, Italy. That one cost over $1 billion to make, and uses 1.1 million gallons of water from local springs.
As for the world's largest infinity pool? That's at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore and has stunning city views. "It gives a whole new meaning to going off the deep end," Fredrik says. "But if you want to swim in the infinity pool, you have to be a guest. And with rates going as high as $17,000... that is some serious H2 oh my!"
