The Champion

Inspired by the sensual minimalism concept, Temptation’s sexy pool was designed by Egyptian-born and Canadian-raised industrial designer Karim Rashid, who oversaw the property’s renovation in 2017. Guests can bask in the sun at this topless-optional pool at one of the Surf sun loungers designed by Rashim himself, or join the party at the swim-up bar. The Sexy Pool is the hotel’s most energized hot-spot and epicenter of everything fun, with daily pool parties and live entertainment.  

The Runner-Up

Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa offers guests a pool experience like no other. The resort is home to a series of natural pools that are connected by cascading waterfalls of the Tabacón River, which are heated to varying temperatures by underground magma from the nearby Arenal Volcano. The pools are surrounded by the lush Costa Rican rainforest and feature different degrees of privacy and water flows. The best part? The pools are all-natural, meaning that the water isn’t pumped or heated at all, and the mineral content of thermal water has been proven to have numerous health benefits to those who soak in it.
