You can come anytime; I'm usually always there - call me before you come.

You are right, it turned out bigger than I thought; originally the design was for a 60 feet round pool, but decided that we might as well make that 80 feet. It holds about 85,000 gallons, and the deepest section is 6'8". Keep in mind that we are a really small resort with only 15 hotel rooms!

So it's actually circular with an island in the middle? It's hard to tell in the pics.

Thanks, thanks for all the kind compliments. Yes Pedro2, the center is a palm Island. I have changed the order of the pictures, so you can see them in pairs (every time 2 pics from the same location).

The pool is round, but it is in the shape of a geometrical figure: Our logo represents the Sun. The footprint of the Petronas towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is very similar, and I liked the geometrical design. The diamond shape island in the middle is similar as the center of our logo, and the lines that separate the pool sides where the whirlpool deck starts are mirrored to the steps to the deeper end on the other side of the pool like in the second ring from the center in our logo.

Our pool is located Beach Front and has got 6 sections:
1. The Palm Island in the middle.
2. The Whirl pool section in front.
3 The Shallow water Sunbathing Area.
4. The Mid- Deep section.
5. The Deep section that is 6'8" deep.
6. The deck all around.

I will shortly charter a helicopter to take pictures, but here is the artistic impression of what it looks like: Pool.Portofino.bz
