Inspiration & History
Inspired by the timeless curves of Rome’s famed landmark, the Coliseum Pool is the most strikingly unique swimming pool at any resort–and the heart of The Resort at Pelican Hill®. Perfectly circular, 136 feet in diameter and three feet deep throughout, the Coliseum Pool is one of the largest circular pools in the world, holding 380,000 gallons of chemical-free soft saltwater. It dazzles with classic architecture of vaulted arches, corniced columns and amphitheater of terraced decks. Set like a precious gem amidst this stunning architecture, the pool itself is a work of art. Its radiant blue bottom was created by hand-setting 1.1 million hand-cut glass mosaic tiles.
