I just had to share 5 of my favourite sky-high hotel spas and pools as I’ve been dreaming about past travels recently.
They’re all favourites for a variety of reasons – lovely hotels with great memories attached both here in England and across the globe.
King Street Townhouse, Manchester, England
The skyline spa pool caught my attention each time that my friends stayed at the King Street Townhouse – and the way they raved after their stay only made me dream about it longer. I’ve always prided myself on living life to the full, but over the years I’ve definitely said ‘oh, we’ll do that one day…’ much too often. This was a case in point.
Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney, Australia
With room service breakfast ordered, a few lazy laps in the rooftop pool and a spell in the hot tub; to say my stay at the Four Seasons Hotel in the centre of Sydney was restful is an understatement.
Scarlet Hotel, Cornwall, England
Ok, technically this is a clifftop hotel hot tub, but the Scarlet Hotel is too gorgeous not to… Sitting peacefully listening to the waves on the beach below, watching birds repair their winter worn nests, the cool air on my shoulders and a hot pot of fresh mint tea aromatically drifting on the breeze, I felt like the real world was a million miles away from our hotel in Cornwall.
Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore
With one of the most iconic sky-high hotel spas and pools, this Singapore icon was a dream stay. Setting my alarm early, I threw my swimsuit and robe on and made my way back up to the 57th floor of the Marina Bay Sands. Watching the sun break over the horizon from a hot tub was pure bliss. There was a soft warm breeze before the day really heated up, so I made my way over to the pool for a few lazy laps. Delicious.
True Blue Bay, Grenada
Technically this pool isn’t sky-high, but keep scrolling for the gorgeous Caribbean harbour view…
…oh, and did I mention the rum bar?
To make up for the earth based pool view, may I present the:
Thermae Spa, Bath, England
It’s not attached to any particular hotel, but the view from the Thermae Spa in Bath is utterly breathtaking. So much so I’ve been several times and are planning yet another twilight visit. This isn’t my photo – any time I’ve visited the multi-level spa I’m strictly throwing a bathrobe & swimsuit on immediately and ditching the phone.
Now to book another beautiful stay or two that have sky-high hotel spas and pools…! Most of these hotels are available on booking.com * NB: affiliate link*
