There’s no reason to ever leave your property when you can take a dip in pools like these, exquisite enough to be found in world’s finest five-star resorts. These are a few of our favorite pools in paradise:

4508 Makena Road | $29.98 million
Hawaii beachfront living — redefined. On the pool deck of this Makena estate, it feels as if you’re lounging at your own private resort. Dip your toes into the refreshing waters of the iridescent tile pool, all while gazing out to the azure waters of the South Maui coast line.

21 Kaulua Place | $5.25 million
When you don’t feel like strolling through the grassy backyard to the ocean to paddleboard, surf or windsurf, hang back at the pool with a book at this breathtaking Kuau estate. Without the coconut trees swaying in breeze in the distance, it’s almost hard to tell where the infinity-edge pool ends and the Pacific Ocean begins. Offered for the first time, this home hidden on Maui’s north shore, boasts a single level, open floor plan with an expansive covered lanai so you can enjoy every moment outdoors if you so choose.
110 Mehana Road | $3.45 million
There’s nothing better than waking up to the songs of birds while you enjoy a cup of your favorite brew on the lanai, just before taking a swim in a pool with its own own waterfall. Surrounded by tropical plants and natural rock formations, this private oasis offers a retreat to nature in your own backyard.
Situated on more than 12 acres in the heart of Haiku, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom home embraces the beauty of nature through its many windows and doors, making for ideal indoor-outdoor living. Better yet, it’s only seven minutes from Paia and roughly 20 minutes to Upcountry schools and shopping.
85 E. Waipio Road | $3.1 million
Even though they live in Hawaii, Maui residents know that the ocean and pools can often get a little too chilly for comfort in the winter. But that’s not so at this magnificent oceanfront estate, which offers a 41-foot heated pool. Powered by solar energy, the stunning saline pool overlooks Waipio Bay, with views of ships sailing on the horizon and humpback whales breaching during the winter.
