When luxury beckons and nothing but the best in excessive decadence will do, Bulgari answers. So when the Bulgari Hotel finally opened its doors in London last month, can you can be certain is drew more than just a few nods from passersby.

Located in the heart of Knightsbridge near Harrods and Hyde Park - arguably London's most prestigious neighborhood - Bulgari Hotel London exudes everything you'd expect from the brand: perfection, precision, and endless elegance. And then there's the pool.

Part of the two-level spa, the swimming pool was crafted from sandblasted Vicenza stone, and is lined with green and gold leaf glass mosaic tiles. It's surrounded by tall columns and comfortable cabanas, perfect for indulging in a day of doing nothing. On the hotel's website, you'll find plenty of information about the spa and its amenities, including the Vitality Pool, which is lined gold leaf glass tiles, and has air and water massage jets, and a waterfall.
