This Italian hotel has the worlds deepest pool which has a terrifying depth of 40 meters or a 12-storey building


This is not your average hotel’s backyard swimming pool. Surpassing Brussels Nemo 33 as the world’s deepest pool, the Y-40 Deep Joy located at the Hotel Terme Millepini in Italy reaches a terrifying depth of 40 meters. That’s equivalent to a 12-storey building or nine double-decker buses piled on top of each other. Let us catch a breath before plunging into details.

Measuring 21x18m, the Y-40 pool has various intermediary depths and caves for technical activities before it becomes a narrow hole-like tunnel as the depths plummet straight down. Designed by architect Emanuele Boaretto, the pool contains 4300mc of thermal water kept at a temperature of between 32-34°C so you can swim and dive in just your normal swimming costume rather than having to wear a wetsuit.
