Dream Downtown Pool, New York

The 10 Best Pool and Poolside Scenes

Jetsetter unveiled their annual roundup of the top pools and pool scenes to take in this summer from all over the continental US and the world. The list kicks off at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs for its swanky afternoon parties, A-list DJs and spur-of-the-moment poolside yoga sessions, all taking place in a geometric-shaped pool with tons of sun-facing lounge space.

Second on the list is Las Vegas’s very own Cosmopolitan hotel, known for its commitment wild, raucous debauchery. The rooftop pool club, Boulevard, puts on a series of concerts, “Dive in Movie” nights, and even features its own ice-cream bar with flavored vodkas and liqueurs.

Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, in Antibes, France, was named to the list at the third spot for its “dreamy saltwater pool carved from the basalt rock over the Mediterranean.” If a storied ancestry of iconic literary, artistic, and political heroes wasn’t enough to tempt you – Pablo Picasso, Marlene Dietrich, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Johnny Depp, Mick Jagger, and the Clintons, Bushes, and Windsors have all vacationed here – there’s a trapeze hanging above the sea guaranteed to pique your interest.

In Bali, the Potato Head Beach Club in Seminyak has become one of the premiere islands to party. It’s modeled after the Coliseum but flooded with modern touches, like the swim-up circular tiki bar and palm-fringed infinity pool.
