March has been a trying time for the travel industry, and, while the inspiration for our annual cool pool contest won’t be taking place this year, we’re still hoping to use it as a fun distraction for a time when anxieties are running high.

So, we’re happy to present the latest edition of our Coolest Hotel Pool in the World contest! Last year, TRS Yucatan Hotel’s Helios Beach Club took home the crown; for 2020, we’ll once again be pitting 64 hotel pools against each other in a bracket-style competition.

The editors of Travel Agent seeded the hotels and created the bracket. Now, it’s your turn to vote on the coolest pool in each matchup! Voting for Round 1 is open now through next Monday, March 23. Cast your vote below!

Sanctuary Cap Cana Resort & Spa vs The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa

Fully reimagined early this year, the all-inclusive, adults-only Sanctuary Cap Cana Resort & Spa boasts an elevated infinity pool that flows into a waterfall at its edge and offers views of the resort’s main pool, white sandy beach and the Caribbean Sea. Lining the infinity pool are nest-shaped, elegant cabanas for shading from the sun. 

Guests can relax in the heated infinity pool at the The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa overlooking the Atlantic Ocean or gaze at the mountain from the rock pool and heated Jacuzzi behind the hotel. A fully serviced tanning deck and 10 hammocks in the Fynbos gardens are ideal for lazy days soaking up the sun. One of the hotel’s unique attributes is its indigenous garden, which blends into the mountainside. Both pools have a special menu which is serviced by The Café Grill, for delicious light meals and café-style fare.
