Hotel pools seem to get bigger and better every single year. We’re watching, trust me. Have you ever wondered what the world’s largest pool on the planet would look like? Below we feature the world’s largest outdoor pool located in Chile at San Alfonso del Mar Resort. The sparkling water is kept so beautiful that you can even see the bottom which is a whopping 115 feet deep! Crazy, right? This enormous man made pool deserves a feature in our opinion. Let’s check it out!
The world’s largest pool has some crazy statistics and measurements:
- We already mentioned it but it is: 115 feet deep It holds the Guinness World Record for being the world’s deepest!
- It is nearly 20 acres large
- It holds 66 MILLION gallons of water
- It is six times bigger than its closest competitor
- The pool was developed by Fernando Fischmann; his Chilean company Crystal Lagoons built the pool, which opened in December 2006.
- To make maintenance even possible, sucks water directly in from the sea using a computer-controlled suction and filtration system
- The sun warms the water to 26 Celcius, which is nine degrees warmer than the adjoining sea
- For those who don’t want to get out in the elements, there are ‘indoor’ portions as well located inside of the glass pyramids seen below!
