LIONEL MESSI has renovated his Ibiza hotel to include a “constellation effect” pool that allows guests to listen to music while underwater.
The Barcelona star owns three hotels under the MiM Hotels brand, with the other locations in Sitges and Mallorca.
The hotels in Ibiza and Mallorca have reopened after the coronavirus pandemic and have been renovated in an attempt to be more sustainable and to reduce emissions, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The new-look swimming pool is just one of a number of changes overseen by Messi.
The Mallorca resort will open with a new facade and a spar that provides a view of the sunset.
But it is the Ibiza hotel that is likely Messi’s pride and joy with 52 rooms and a mindblowing pool from the future.
Rooms were priced between £226-£525 prior to the pandemic, but could rise following the renovations.
The forward also owns an MiM hotel in Sitges, located not far from Barcelona.
The Argentinian often frequents the £26million hotel when recovering from injury, and The Sun paid it a visit in 2019.

On pitch rival Cristiano Ronaldo owns his own set of hotels under his CR7 brand but is yet to mark his territory in Ibiza, despite often going to the island on holiday.
Messi seems to be thriving in his off the pitch business but seems to approach the venture with a similar amount of creativity to what he shows on the pitch.
If his hotels take off after the pandemic we could well see more investment from the 33-year-old in future.
