You’ve likely heard of Wim “Iceman” Hof in recent months. He’s a Dutch fellow who encourages regular ice-cold plunges, claiming the practice can stimulate your immune system, offering countless psychological and physiological benefits.

While he might have science in his corner, it’s pretty apparent Iceman hasn’t tried hanging poolside in the Caribbean, pina colada in hand.

Enjoy your own significantly warmer plunge therapy in one of our carefully curated pool-equipped pads from around the world.

Our top picks: Pool Equipped Pads

This breathtaking Tulum apartment is as close to utter zen as possible. Designed down to the smallest detail with relaxation in mind, the sprawling space holds three bedrooms, and a hybrid-indoor-outdoor common space decked out with multiple hang-out options, including the stunning pool and a picture-perfect interior.

Leaving to explore the area will be the hardest thing to do on your trip.

And yes, that’s a dangling sofa in the pool.

Staying in Greece is cool. Staying in a cliffside villa in Greece is cooler. Chilling by the infinity pool in your cliffside villa in Greece is unbeatably cool.

This modern apartment-style pad is simple and comfortable, allowing you to focus on your spectacular seafront location. Throw in a raki and sunset doesn’t really get any more perfect, does it?

Best of all, you can grab it for only $230 a night.

We won’t lie. We barely even looked into the Marriott Marquis Hilton’s amenities at first. We just figured that if they put half of the effort they put into their pool, it’s gonna be good.

Of course, the star of the show is the Texas-shaped lazy river pool that winds for a full 515 feet. Grab a tube and your drink of choice, and spend your afternoon floating in bliss on the quickest-ever tour of the Lone Star State.
