If you’re a Sex And The City junkie like me, you’ll remember the episode when Samantha wanted to join one of the hottest pool clubs in New York City during the summer, but the exclusive pool club had a waiting list. And since Sam hates waiting, she did the unthinkable and stole someone’s pool access card. We don’t want you to do that. So instead of setting you up for a crime, we created a list of 5 dreamy hotel pools perfect for taking a dip in this summer.
A New York City favorite, The Beach at Dream Hotel is located in the Meatpacking District and allows you to feel like a bag of money with its glass-bottomed pool, Long Island sand and French Riviera theme. During the weekdays or weekends, the hotel offers $55 day passes to non-hotel guests. However if you’re coming with a big group, you can book a cabana that seats ten guests.
Travel+Leisure reports Andaz is the best rooftop pool to venture to when you’re in need of some much-needed girl chat. The rooftop is said to offer a killer view of Los Angeles, the best Cuban sandwiches and sunscreen just in case you forget yours at home. You can also book a yoga session in case you need to find your zen.
Let’s be real, Bourbon Street can be #TeamTooMuch at any given time. So if you need to find a calm space, Bourbon Orleans rooftop pool can be your secret getaway. The hotel appears to be modeled after Versailles and has a heated saltwater pool. When you’re done lounging poolside, Bourbon Orleans offers Creole cuisine at their restaurant Roux.
The Conrad offers guests two pools and even a pool bar in the center of one, allowing you to sip and swim as you please. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway with no disturbances, the Conrad is the place to be since it’s completely secluded from the rest of the city.
Instead of paying for a yacht tour in Capri, find yourself taking in the view in Sorrento, Italy. Hotel Palazzo offers a breathtaking view of the coastal Italian town from their rooftop pool and bar. When you’re tired of staying on the premises, you can head over to the beach or the Tasso Theatre.
