Outdoor Swimming Pool
Most hotel swimming pools are nothing special they re known for being small, crowded, and shallow. In an attempt to keep those adjectives out of their pool, designers of the outdoor swimming pool at San Alfonso Del Mar Resort in Chile seem to have overcompensated a bit.In photos, it looks like some kind of weird, clear lagoon running the length of the resort s main beach. Upon further inspection, yes, it is actually a swimming pool, and the sheer numbers associated with it boggle the mind. Covering 20 acres, the pool is over 900 meters (3,000 ft) long (the second longest, in Morocco, is a measly 137 meters). Its deep end is 35 meters (115 ft) also a world record and it holds 66 million gallons of water. Also, it could engulf 20 Olympic sized swimming pools, took five years and nearly $1 billion to build, and costs about $2 million yearly to maintain.
