There are infinity pools perched on cliffsides, infinity pools that encircle properties and infinity pools sunk into other bodies of water, but have you ever seen an infinity pool that appears like a solid sheet of black water? This is the main pool at The Vijitt Resort in Phuket, Thailand, where we recently stayed for several nights on a killer low season deal of only $128 per night for our own (pool-less) villa.

The Vijitt is a Thai-owned, all-villa resort and—surprise—that means you actually feel like you're in Thailand, instead of a giant chain hotel that could be anywhere. It sits on the other side of Phuket Island from the Andaman Sea, all the big beaches and big waves; it's in Rawai, on the calm Friendship Beach instead. Because the tide is often out, the pools are the focus here and they're worth it.
