#TravelTuesday: Dive into this sky pool surrounded by the Dolomites mountain range
Up in the air
Still swooning over the inifinity pool at Marina Bay Sands? Here's news for you. The family-run Hotel Hubertus at Valdaora, Italy, has built a glass-bottomed sky pool that not only affords views of the lush valley below, but of the surrounding UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites mountain range hugging the property.
Floating like a rock over the hotel's new accomodation wing, the 25-metre-long cantilevered pool designed by award-winning noa* architects makes a bigger splash with anthracite-coloured stone, ensuring it blends into the landscape to appear more like a mountain lake than the man-made architectural masterpiece it is.
Supported by native larch tree trunks, the pool serves as a point of interest between the hotel's new and old accomodation wings, giving guests much to look forward to after a day of slow hikes and exhilarating ski-action in the Italian province of South Tyrol.
