If you were to consider putting in a pool, but at the same time wanted it to be a unique space unto itself, then a design like this one would work well. What I like about the step design is that it gives yo9u a little journey to make on your way to the pool. It can make your entire property feel more like a tiny adventure form one spot to the next. This actually serves to make the landscape design more enjoyable to engage with. The tropical trees and bushes look very nice, and only serve to add to this adventurous landscaping idea.
