Once you step foot in one of Faena’s poolside cabanas, you’ll understand why Condé Nast Traveler named Faena one of the ten most “over-the-top” hotel pools in the world. The uniform red chaise lounge, white accents and signature red and white striped umbrellas line the impressive pool, presenting a chic, artistic aesthetic–an elegant design unmatched by any other hotel pool. Faena’s amenities are also sure to stun: by the pool, enjoy wine on ice and mouth-watering snacks served by “pool butlers” who provide premier service.

Holding 600,000 gallons of water, the 23,000 square-foot pool is legendary. At the Biltmore, bask in everything grand by reserving a cabana by the pool, which is whimsically lined with bougainvillea and Renaissance statues. Accommodating up to eight guests, the cabanas are furnished in teak wood, classic banana leaf ceiling fans, top-notch lounge chairs and outdoor rain showers. As you’re living large and resting by the marble polished pool, you are guaranteed a taste of Miami opulence.

The Breakers’ four posh pools—most notably the infinity adult pool and expansive main pool—capture the essence of the classic, high-end Palm Beach resort. Freshly manicured Ponce Promenade and Ocean Lawn make for a glamorous lead-in to the Beach Club where guests can reserve an indoor-outdoor bungalow complete with plush furniture, a flatscreen television, a bathroom, gourmet food and beverage service. The luxurious poolside cabanas take the saying “home away from home” to a new level: the accommodations transport guests away from reality, providing an oasis away from the Breakers’ already impressive suites during the day.
