WestJet Magazine chooses three great hotel pools

Posted: 13-Jun-18 09:51

For travellers hoping to spend part of their summer relaxing in an idyllic pool, three hotels—located in Havana, Denver, and Las Vegas—boast pools well worth making a trip. With private cabanas, lush landscaping, and rooftop views, the pools at three upscale properties are enough to tempt any traveller.

WestJet Magazine chooses three great hotel pools

With summer upon us, many travellers will seek destinations with the most inviting pools. Three of the best can be found in Havana, Denver, and Las Vegas.

Havana’s Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski offers one of the most idyllic swimming pools travellers are likely to find. With its softly uplit, wedding-cake white façade, the hotel is a welcome introduction in a city where luxury accommodations are a relative rarity. Guests will admire the purple, green, and grey splashes of colour in the 246 rooms featuring high ceilings, huge beds, and louvered windows—many overlooking Havana’s central park.

But it’s the hotel’s rooftop terrace, showcasing a jaw-dropping downtown view, which truly stands out. The Bella Habana infinity pool is flood-lit at night and spills over the Havana skyline—all columns, cherubs, scrolls, palms, and neon signs. The luxurious Spa Albear by Resense, and the tropical green splendour of the first-floor Constante Bar also serve as a refreshing retreat from the city’s streets.

At Denver’s Halcyon in the upscale Cherry Creek North neighbourhood, this 154-room hotel is evocative of a stay in an industrial-style, modern house. Comforts include individual doormats with the reminder, “You Belong Here” in-room record players, a lobby that doubles as the Kitchen Counter, and a stocked “gear garage” full of longboards and cruiser bikes.

For panoramic views of downtown, the Rocky Mountains and, on a clear day, Pikes Peak, head to the hotel’s rooftop pool deck. Guests can relax by the pool in a private cabana and indulge in Asian fare and cocktails from the deck’s Departure Elevated bar.

The property is a short distance away from the Denver Botanic Gardens, which hosts a series of rotating exhibits.

The SLS Las Vegas is another must-see property. The hotel is a refreshing burst of colour on the Las Vegas Strip. The property includes 1,327 rooms spread across two towers—boutique by Las Vegas standards—all the vision of designer Phillippe Starck, though Lenny Kravitz’s interior design studio did lend its touch to some suites.

The real star of the SLS Las Vegas, however, is the Foxtail Pool, a more than 40,000 square foot dayclub with pool bar, cabanas, and daybeds, feels like the set of a Katy Perry music video, while the Retro Pool Lounge, an adults-only rooftop scene, offers a more laid-back atmosphere.
