West Hollywood

If you decide to visit West Hollywood, the two hotels you must check out are The Andaz and The London hotels. The Andaz is conveniently located on Sunset Blvd, with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. The rooftop pool has amazing views of the Hollywood hills and features plenty of lounge chairs for you and your friends, or loved ones, to pamper yourselves.

The London Hotel is located on San Vicente Blvd and just minutes from the heart of Beverly Hills. The rooftop pool is exquisite with the bright blue Californian sky and canopied lounge chairs lining the area. It’s the perfect setting for sipping mojitos and chatting with the other hotel guests.

Aside from the fantastic views of the city skyline, the pool features chairs in the pool. Singapore knows how to do luxury and the Marina Bay Sands knocked this one out of the park.

With elegant lounge chairs and gorgeous palm trees lining the pool area, you will feel like one of the rich and famous.

Rio De Janeiro

Tropical getaways are the perfect way to spend your summer and Rio de Janeiro does not disappoint! They have plenty of pool options available and Yoo2 and Fasano are the two hotels with the best rooftop pools around.

Yoo2 is the more affordable option of the two hotels. Featuring two pools, one is long with just a few lounge chairs and encased in glass. You will be able to enjoy the breathtaking view of the bustling city below. The other pool is smaller and square-shaped with plenty of room for socializing.

Fasano is the luxury option and we can see why. Located on the beaches of Ipanema, the view of the ocean is beyond anything we can describe. The pool and area is spacious with luscious lounge chairs. You will be free to work on a gorgeous Brazilian tan and drink amazing tropical adult beverages without care.

While it may seem counterintuitive to desire a pool when you take a beach or coastal trip, it’s a very popular option. You don’t have to fight crowds for parking, for a spot on the beach, and you don’t have to worry about sand traveling back to your hotel room or even home with you. Sitting poolside is a luxurious feeling and everyone wants the opportunity to experience it. Hotels are paying attention and doing their best to offer unique and amazing poolside adventures.
