As the weather starts to warm up, we thought we’d do a quick round up of the best pools around the world to take a dip in. Yes, it might be an expensive journey to swim a few laps in a pool located in Santorini or the Maldives, but we’re all about inspiring people to travel.

Take a few minutes to imagine yourself and someone special on a Spring Fling at the Ubud Hanging Gardens’ pool in Bali, surrounded by a lush rainforest, or image yourself hugging the edge of InterContinental Hotel’s infinity pool overlooking Hong Kong’s harbor. Get your feet wet and submerge yourself into our collection of perfect pools.

Anthony has one more mission left on the docket for season 2! In the season finale of Hotel Impossible, Anthony travels to the Western Riviera in Grand Lake, CO, to help the hotel draw in customers. Grand Lake is scenic and quaint, with great conditions for skiing. The only problem is … it’s empty.

Located next to the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park at the edge of Colorado’s largest natural lake, the Western Rivera Hotel sees a peak in occupancy during the summer but is desperate for guests during the long winter.

Mike and Jackie Tompkins, first-time hotel owners, have dumped hundreds of thousands of dollars from their personal savings account into the hotel in a last-ditch effort to upgrade the its image. However, the worn-out outdoor chairs, broken fire extinguishers, and chipped wood hanging off the side of the hotel are only a few of the issues turning people away.

Will Anthony’s efforts — combined with the help of interior designer Blanche Garcia — be enough to bring tourists to this lovable mountain town with breathtaking views, lots of outdoor activities and big local spirit? Or, will Western Riviera be forced to close their doors forever? Find out tonight, on the season finale of Hotel Impossible at 10|9c.

Plus, check out exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from tonight’s finale.
