London’s known to be very rainy and not exactly ideal for outdoor swimming pools. Luckily! Most of the hotels in London keep their luxurious pools indoors; check out Haute Living’s top-5 hotel pools in London.
1 The Berkeley Hotel London
This five-star hotel plus celebrity home away from home has been in the Knightsbridge district for over 100 years. The Berkeley Hotel is known for its elegance and a welcoming aura. The guests and celebrities need to kick back every now and then, and where do they do that, at the Berkeley’s world-class pool. Pillars making an indoor courtyard with windows that lookout to the city in all directions surround this refreshing pool.
2 The Langham
The Langham hotel is ideal for those looking for some relaxation after facing head-on the hustle and bustle that is London. The Vitality pool on the lower level of the Langham is very zen like with whirling ceramic tiles underwater and a tranquil mural of a tree looking over the pool. After a swim try the salt sauna and steam room for the ultimate rejuvenation experience.
3 The Rembrandt
The Rembrandt hotel is a short distance away from tourist attractions such as Buckingham Palace, the Natural History Museum and the Earls Court Exhibition Centre. But the pool here is a work of art in itself. With circular edges that make the pool look like it has a series of whirlpools and elegant lighting, swimming in this pool will make you feel like a roman noble getting away from the hot sun.
4 The Savoy
Situated above the historic Savoy Theater, the Savoy Hotel’s pool takes its relaxation notes from Asian influences. Sunlight beams down into the pool through windows above and the area are reminiscent of a Dojo with white walls and wooden sliding doors that surround the whole pool.
5 The Waldorf Hilton London
With the Covent Garden-London’s haute ballet and opera theater- outside and just a short walk away from London’s financial center, the Waldorf Hilton London Hotel is one of the cities premier stays. Along with a restaurant and cocktail bar to soothe your nerves, the Waldorf boasts a luxurious pool and spa. The pool is glowing blue and soothing beige and whites decorate the interior.
