Hot New Homes: The Biggest, Most Beautiful Pools On The Planet

If it doesn't have a waterfall, a helipad, or a beachfront entry, why bother?
That cute pool you've been sipping beer by this summer has nothing on these splashy million-dollar affairs. You wish you lived here.

Price: $45,000,000

Key selling points: This three-level, glass mansion's custom-tiled, tiered, infinity pool looks over a private park, cascading down a stone wall to create a minimalist waterfall.
