5 Hotel Pools We Could Lounge at All Summer


June is upon us and the summer months are creeping up on us quickly! If you’re anything like me, you’re already making plans for whatever free weekends you have available.

Whether it’s a road trip somewhere new and exciting, or a local staycation, it’s time to find some great pools for you to camp beside and take in the beautiful weather. We’ve rounded up our top five hotels with incredible pools that you should consider visiting this summer!

1. Sands Hotel & Spa — Indian Wells, Calif.

If you’re looking for a quiet, adult-only hotel to get away with your significant other or friends, the Sands Hotel & Spa near Palm Springs is a great choice. The property features 46 guest rooms, the Pink Cabana restaurant and bar, full-service spa, and private wedding garden. The best part is their beautifully designed pool and surrounding pool deck. I’m already thinking about which cocktail I’ll be ordering when I visit.

2. The Wave Resort — Long Branch, N.J.

Are you heading to the Jersey Shore this summer? Then the Wave Resort is the hotel for you! This resort’s pool is not only Instagram-worthy with its clear side pool for creative photos, but it also overlooks the ocean, giving you the best of both worlds. Start your day on the beach, and then end it poolside at the Wave Resort where you can enjoy some delicious cocktails.

3. Sands Harbor Resort & Marina — Pompano Beach, Fla.

Planning a trip to the Fort Lauderdale area? The Sands Harbor Resort & Marina is the perfect place for you. If you’re looking for some lively scenery, you’ll find it here. The Sands Harbor Resort & Marina is surrounded by beautiful palm trees and gives you the perfect view of watching the boats coming in and out. They also have dining situated right on the pool deck, making it easy to grab a bite for lunch, or convenient for dinner! What a beautiful spot they have! 

4. Snake River Lodge & Spa — Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Next on our list is the incredible Snake River Lodge & Spa. If you’re traveling to Wyoming, then you’ve just found your home away from home. And if you’re not, I highly suggest planning a trip to this breathtaking lodge. Not only are you surrounded by incredible mountains and outdoor activities, but the pool that awaits you when you return is also unlike any other pool I’ve seen. It’s a heated, indoor/outdoor pool (weather is no problem here), and it’s surrounded by their outdoor grotto waterfalls. What a perfect place to sit back and relax after a beautiful summer day! 

5. The Williamsburg Hotel — Brooklyn, N.Y.

Calling all New Yorkers! If you’re looking for somewhere to cool down during these upcoming heat waves, we’ve found your next spot! The Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn has one of the best rooftop pools in the city with 360-degree views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. They also offer their guests dining and craft cocktails, as well as curated music series to make their stay as enjoyable as possible — sign me up!
