Imagine serpentine edgeless pools, lined with lounge chairs, with views to vistas framed by lush landscaping and the tranquil blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful, yes – add waterfalls, lap pools, swim-up bars and the most refreshing touch, an intimate area where the lounge chairs are actually submerged in the pool, perched on a platform within a narrow crescent shaped edgeless pool – and you know that you have found your own pool-paradise. Your guest room or suite in the 10-story high-rise Westin Breakers Cay will be bright, decorated in a lively Bahamian palette of turquoise and navy blue, with lime and yellow accents against crisp white bedding.
