One of the best parts of an Inspirato vacation is the chance to relax, unwind, and lounge poolside, cocktail in hand. Though the Inspirato Collection offers myriad stunning hotels with incredible pools, we’ve narrowed it down to five of our favorites, across the globe.
Il Sereno — Lake Como, Italy
Bloomberg calls Il Sereno “Europe’s most luxurious new hotel,” and with one look at its infinity-edge pool, suspended directly above Italy’s gorgeous Lake Como, it’s not hard to see why. After taking a plunge, be sure to stop by the hotel’s five-star Berton Al Lago restaurant, serving modern Italian fare and helmed by Michelin-starred chef Andrea Berton.
Alila Uluwatu — Bali, Indonesia
Perched atop limestone cliffs, Alila Ulutwatu resort offers sweeping views of the Indian Ocean and an on-site spa—the ultimate tropical retreat. And though the resort boasts a large infinity-edge pool, each villa is equipped with its own private cabana and smaller pool, so guests can sunbathe in private serenity. White-sand beaches and the Balinese Hindu Uluwatu temple—one of the most popular tourist destinations in Bali—are only a 10- to 15-minute drive away.
Katikies — Mykonos, Greece
Katikies, a luxe, minimalistic hotel, is a perfect spot for honeymooners or couples seeking a romantic getaway on the scenic Greek isle of Mykonos. Nestled along the sunny beach of Agios Ioannis, the boutique hotel offers an on-site spa and 24-hour room service, just steps from Mykonos’ upscale restaurants. Prefer seclusion? The hotel’s honeymoon, superior, and master suites all come with their own pool.
Amangiri — Canyon Point, Utah
Tucked among the canyons on the border of Arizona and Utah, Amangiri is a secluded oasis with breathtaking desert views. The hotel gives new meaning to the word “getaway” in this remote paradise, situated on 600 acres of protected land. Situated against a rocky outcropping, the resort’s pool flows along its edge, almost seeming a part of the canyon itself. And Amangiri’s on-site spa offers healing treatments in the Navajo tradition, as well as innovative, meditative practices like flotation therapy.
The Peninsula — Chicago, Illinois
Get in some laps in the half-Olympic-size pool on the 19th floor of the Peninsula Chicago. Located in the city’s affluent Gold Coast neighborhood along the shores of Lake Michigan, the Peninsula is a short walk to such Chicago staples as the Bean and Navy Pier. And no need to worry about those brisk winters in the Windy City—the heated, indoor pool is open year-round, and in the summer months, guests can catch rays on the adjoining pool deck.
