Fashion Design Inspiration: Designed by Karl Lagerfeld, the exclusive ODYSSEY pool haven at Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo offers a “haute couture” atmosphere centered on an al fresco glass installation portraying the journey of Ulysses. ODYSSEY also features a heated salt-water pool, private cabanas, terrace, gardens and pool house featuring the Mediterranean-inspired Joël Robuchon restaurant, making it a Monaco destination to ‘see and be seen.’
Rooftop Pool Playground: At the recently debuted Thompson Playa del Carmen, the 30,000 sq ft. rooftop (the highest point in Playa del Carmen, is an adult playground) boasting a gorgeous infinity pool complete with in-water loungers, island perches, a swim-up bar and underwater living rooms. Flanked by luxurious, oversized cabanas, guests can sip signature cocktails under the sun or in the shade, savoring the sounds of tropical house music from a live DJ.
Wellness in the Water: Nestled amidst the High Sonoran foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, guests taking advantage of the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa’s 5-pool oasis can also experience complimentary wellness amenities. Fulfilling travelers both mentally and physically, guests can soak in the Dead Sea salt infused therapeutic mineral pool while taking in the breathtaking views of the sun kissed Arizona peaks at sunset.
Popsicle Cocktails & Ocean Views: At Conrad Miami, located on chic Brickell Avenue, the rooftop pool is the crown jewel of the luxury hotel, featuring private poolside cabanas complete with full food and beverage service and breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.
