In Valle de Bravo real estate agency élan shows another photo of this pool in its brochure. This photo was taken from a different perspective and at an earlier time. But the pool, the tree and the fern can be easily identified:
(élan brochure shows up randomly)
An address is not specified (presumably to protect the privacy of the owner). In Valle de Bravo, almost every house has its own pool. But this pool is obviously hidden under leaves, I couldn't find it on the satellite view. That's why I sent an e-mail to élan. In their response, they confirmed that they were handling this property several years ago.
I hope that this sufficiently proves that this pool is located in Valle de Bravo, Mexico.

The spreading of this photo in the internet is amazing. It is offered as a wall art and stands as an example of a place of yearning, as an illustration for garden design or pool architecture, as an eye-catcher for spa services. Most of these entries do not specify the location of this pool. However, some entries refer to Galindo Chi Spa at Jason Jiang Hot Spring in Zhengzhou, Henan, China, others refer to the Komanka Resort Ubud Bali. But on the corresponding websites, I couldn't find any evidence for this, although there are some pools that look somehow similar.
Finally I found out:
The architect Manolo Mestre created this small pool on the edge of a hill for a private residence in Valle de Bravo, Mexico. The picture was taken by Tim Street-Porter.

It originally appeared in an article about swimming pools. It is the only photo that does not identify the photographer, nor the location, which means the owners of the pool wanted to protect their privacy. Article is here: www dot elledecor.com/decorating/articles/ultimate_swimming_pools_0
yeah as i said before, it's not ubud bali because the pools don't match
Are you sure that this isn't a repost? I think this was somewhere in Asia. Japan?
