7 Perfect Pools & Cabanas you need to be at this Summer!


Are you dreaming of lying by the pool at some tropical resort? Of course, you are. Unfortunately, most of us are tied down to jobs or other responsibilities that prohibit our travel time. Luckily Houston has some pretty amazing hotels with even more amazing pools and cabanas. So fret not if you can’t leave for the weekend. You can still enjoy some relaxing time by the pool. Just consider it a staycation! 

Here are 7 popping pool/cabanas areas you need to be at this summer:

Hotel ZaZa
Zaza is no stranger to the locals here. Located in the artsy Museum District, it is arguably one of the best hotels in the city. Everyone well-known celebrity on the planet has stayed here, but that’s not why they are on our list. The pool/ cabana areas make for a great time. As soon as you step foot in the pool area, you are immediately thinking you are at some wild Las Vegas pool party. The music is awesome and they have a full-service bar on deck. They also have the Za spa that offers pampering by the pool. You can literally get a tan and massage at the same time. If you are looking for a club type atmosphere with bathing suits, this is your place!

Marriott Marquis Houston
A one-of-a-kind Texas-shaped lazy river, rooftop infinity pool, and special events pavilion overlooking Discovery Green Park establish the Marriott Marquis Houston as a cosmopolitan oasis in the heart of downtown. The 1,000-room hotel also features a full service spa and fitness center, two-story sports bar, and two specialty restaurants.

Hotel Sorello
This is a dreamy space that sits in the heart of City Center, in Memorial City. The European-inspired décor gives you vibes of Miami or L.A. The infinity pool overlooks city center and the cabanas have gorgeous loungers with white flowing fabrics draped around them. You can order light eats or cocktails from the Monnalisa bar, that’s adjacent to the pool. This is the perfect date night spot. Bonus: they have live music Wednesday thru Saturday!

Hotel Granduaca
This cute boutique hotel is nestled in the uptown area. With its luscious courtyards and luxe Tuscan style villas, this place will have you feeling like you are on an Italian adventure. If you are looking for privacy, this is your place. Enjoy lite bites in rustic –colored lounges while contemporary or jazz music plays in the background.
 
Four Seasons –Downtown
This pool area is as luxurious as they come. Located in the downtown area, the Four Seasons is quite the pool experience. The misted covered pool bar is at your convenience and there are 15-30min poolside spa services. Once you are done basking in the sun, take a dip in their salt water pool.

St. Regis
Hidden away is this delightful oasis that will have you feeling refreshed once you leave. The wooded pool area is cozy and relaxing. Enjoy the background waterfalls and music while sipping a frozen peach Bellini. They have large wooden loungers to kick your feet up and they offer outdoor spa treatments

The Houstonian Hotel
Hidden among 18 wooded acres in the Galleria area, The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa blends the allure of a nature retreat with the convenience of an urban resort. In addition to Four Diamond accommodations, guests have access to the 125,000-square-foot Fitness Center and pool complex. Choose from three pools—the sports, garden or resort pool, the latter of which features a 32-foot-long slide, waterfalls and geysers.
