When the snow starts to melt and the birds start to chirp, our minds inevitably wander upon the prospect of some good, old-fashioned summer fun. Here are five of our favorite scenic pools around the world to cool off in:
- Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC, New York
Featuring 360° views of Manhattan and the Hudson, and located in our very own Meatpacking District, Gansevoort’s rooftop pool is a trendy spot to soak in some rays. Don’t forget to grab a cocktail from their Plunge Rooftop Bar + Lounge.
- The Curtain, London
East London’s Shoreditch neighborhood is full of hip spots, but The Curtain Hotel raises the bar with a Moroccan-inspired, scenic rooftop pool. Open to hotel guests and club members, the pool is heated and open year-round, with a myriad of food and drink options by their resident bar & restaurant, LIDO.
- Hollywood Proper Residences, Los Angeles
Nothing quite says LA like a scenic rooftop pool in Hollywood. Sat atop 21 stories, the rooftop of the Hollywood Proper Residences features all-around views of the Los Angeles skyline, live music events, poolside cabanas and plenty to eat & drink at the Filifera bar and lounge.
- Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Atlantic City
Soaring 32 stories above the streets of Atlantic City lies the two-story Immersion Spa at The Water Club, The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa Group’s $400 million luxury accommodation. The Water Club features five different pools, including an infinity pool 300 feet above sea level and a window-lined Lap Pool offering some of the most scenic views in the city.
- Panamericano Buenos Aires, a member of Worldhotels, Buenos Aires
Neighboring the Obelisk and the Colón Theatre in downtown Buenos Aires, Worldhotels’ Panamericano hotel offers up a hefty dose of luxury cool atop their checkerboard-tiled luxury rooftop pool, featuring some of the best views the capital city has to offer.
