1. Terranea Resort in Los Angeles, California

Hotel Spa Pool With an Ocean View

At 50,000 square feet, the Terranea Resort‘s spa has extensive facilities as well as a dedicated spa pool, cafe, and store. The spa itself features 25 treatment rooms overlooking the pool area or the cliffside ocean setting. Access to the spa area is restricted to guests aged 18+ who have booked a spa treatment or purchased a day pass.

The spa pool is large and located on the ocean’s edge. Loungers, sofas, and fire pits surround the pool, including a handful that overlook the ocean. You are never parched or hungry thanks to the attentive waitstaff from the adjoining spa cafe.

2. Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa in Singapore

Garden Setting Hotel Spa Pool

“The Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa is one of the best spas in Singapore, featuring 14 indoor treatment rooms and six outdoor treatment pavilions. The real draw is the tropical landscaped gardens with waterfalls, mud baths, swimming pools, and secluded chill-out areas.

The swimming pool in the women-only section of the outdoor spa area is gorgeous. Featuring a flowing waterfall and mud bath in a tranquil and private enclosed area, this pool is the perfect place to chill out after a massage.”

Hotel Spa Pool for Serenity

“The Serenity Pool at Four Seasons Westlake Village, set among the resort’s tranquil gardens, certainly lives up to its name. Voted one of the top spas in the United States by Conde de Nast Traveler, the adults-only outdoor heated spa pool allows guests private pampering by spa staff. Cabanas are available for rent and include a lounge chair, flat screen television, fresh and frozen fruit, and bottled water.”

“While the kids will be thrilled by Aulani’s incredible swimming pools and water slides, parents craving some downtime escape to Laniwai‘s hotel spa pools.

So much more than just one pool, the 5,000-square-foot Kula Wai outdoor hydrotherapy garden features private vitality pools, co-ed mineral baths, a reflexology path, six rain-style showers, and whirlpool jet spas. You could (and should!) stay here all day while the kids play at Aunty’s Beach kids club. You can even dine poolside, choosing from a menu of healthy foods and beverages.”

5. Mii Amo at Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona

Hotel Spa Pool with a Gorgeous View

Mii Amo at Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona is so incredible, you may never want to leave. My husband wanted to make the two-hour drive from the resort to the Grand Canyon. As a serious spa lover, though, there was no way I was leaving the Mii Amo spa once I had discovered it.

You can spend the night at Mii Amo for an immersive spa experience or stay at the family-friendly Enchantment Resort, which offers full spa access privileges for guests over age 16. Enjoy a host of spa treatments, plus a cafe and a fitness center.

And then there are their incredible indoor and outdoor spa pools. The outdoor pool setting will induce serious zen with its gorgeous view of the red rocks of Sedona.

6. Grand Lakes in Orlando, Florida

Resort Spa Pool for an Adult Break

“The Grande Lakes property in Orlando has both a Ritz Carlton and a JW Marriott that share a spa, spa café, and pool in between the two. Guests whisper to maintain the serene vibe and exclusive adult hideaway in America’s family travel capital. It’s super popular with locals for staycations, and is a great way to sneak a few hours from the kids while they are at the Ritz Kids club.”
