From grottos to slides to swim-up bars, feats of design and ingenuity are on display at homes with resort-style pools across the country. These outdoor attractions boast impressive amenities. With the summer months upon us and amid safety precautions to stay at home, there is arguably no better way to pass the time than to be poolside in an extravagant backyard retreat.

Outdoor living continues to become a way of life in warmer climates. The desire to live a lifestyle more aligned with nature has developed from a fleeting trend to an expected upgrade in high-end homes. The pool is a focal point in outdoor living spaces that often will be complemented by summer kitchens, fire features, seating areas and sports courts.

A pool is an attraction in its own right, for which custom designs may include a zero-entry, infinity edges, a sun deck and more unique features. Long, hot summer days can be spent with family and friends in any of the backyard oases with resort-style pools pictured here.
