The time is ripe for you to take a sneaky little weekend staycation, and one key ingredient to your hotel stay is laying by an epic pool.
Here are some of the best hotel options with a pool around Perth:
Rendezvous Hotel Scarborough
Whilst the Rendezvous Hotel has been invading the Scarborough skyline for decades, it’s done so with one epic pool setup. Big tropical vibes, lush palm trees, a sneaky little waterfall and an outdoor bar overlooking the Indian Ocean, you’ll find it hard to leave and explore the foreshore below.
148 The Esplanade, Scarborough
Crown Metropol / Crown Towers
As far as hotel pools go it’s hard to go past Crown’s extensive network of perfect aquatic playgrounds. Surrounded by glamorous daybeds, lounges and cabanas, if you’re looking for a truly escapist staycation, it’s hard to go past Crown’s offerings.
Great Eastern Highway, Burswood
For those looking for a staycation on the fancier side, the Ritz-Carlton is hard to go past. Their infinity pool views are unmatched in Perth, with views of the Bell Tower, the CBD and the Swan River – go on, spoil yourself.
1 Barrack Street, Perth
The Vines Resort
Just wrapped up a tough 18 on the course and need a little cooling off period? The Vines has a delightful 25m swimming pool surrounding an outdoor spa to help ease your troubled mind. If you really need to de-stress there’s also the on-site day spa to help you fully recuperate, before hitting the greens and trying again the next day!
Verdelho Drive, The Vines
The Crowne Plaza in East Perth has a lovely 20m open-air infinity pool within its ranks, with a few poolside deckchairs making it a nice option to lose a few hours. Enjoy views of Langley Park and Swan River just across the road while indulging in a few cocktails from the bar next door.
54 Terrace Road, Perth
Smack bang in the middle of Northbridge, DoubleTree by Hilton has been bringing a bit of glitz and glamour to the area, in part thanks to its impressive outdoor pool. Found way up on the Third Floor, it features splendid views of Perth’s nightlife district, and the poolside bar courtesy of James St Bar + Kitchen will help you really settle in.
100 James St, Northbridge
The Westin Perth
What it lacks in size The Westin’s pool more than makes up for in city views and friendly bar service. Nice to cool off in after hitting their expansive gym.
480 Hay St, Perth
If an outdoor heated pool opening at 6am sounds like your jam, throw the Duxton to the top of the list. Open from 6am until 9pm every day, it’s a beautiful spot to soak in the city from sunrise to sunset.
1 St Georges Terrace, Perth
With impeccably manicured lawns, deckchairs and ample size, it’s hard to go past the Hyatt’s huge outdoor pool. It’s actually the largest heated pool in the Perth CBD, so if size does matter to you, the Hyatt Regency is the place to be.
99 Adelaide Terrace, Perth
Did you know Freo’s biggest hotel also has a delightful hidden secret, with a lush outdoor pool set within its surrounds. The palm tree-lined oasis also has a bar, and on the weekends can turn into a nice little poolside party vibe.
46-54 Marine Terrace, Fremantle
DoubleTree By Hilton Perth Waterfront
Set on the Swan River waterfront, Doubletree By Hilton Perth Waterfront truly is on the water front, with epic views of the Swan River from their lovely little rooftop pool and bar. Once you’ve conquered nearby Kings Park and Elizabeth Quay, perch up by the pool and watch a very Perth-specific sunset.
Parmelia Hilton Perth
Thanks to some recent redevelopments Parmelia Hilton Perth has been shaking its city motel vibe to great effect in recent years. Samuels On Mill is a beautiful new bar and restaurant, the rooms have been given a freshen up, the Executive Lounge is a great spot to hang, and of course there’s the outdoor pool, just begging for laze-around this summer.
The Adnate – Art Series
Whichever way you look at The Adnate – Art Series hotel in the CBD it’s beautiful, but it takes on an extra special shine when you’re doing so under cabana poolside. Situated right next to their bar and restaurant, enjoy a dip while the CBD hustles and bustles below, not a care in the world.
900 Hay Street, Perth
If you’re keen on getting a little further out of the city and into some physical activity, Joondalup Resort has it all. With excellent golf and tennis on offer, their huge outdoor pool is the perfect place to unwind after a day on the course.
Country Club Boulevard, Connolly
And finally if you’re really looking to treat yourself, it’s hard to go past one of Perth’s most luxurious stays – COMO The Treasury. The hotel’s elegant, minimalist style extends to their stunning pool, which still features city views and is hard to leave, especially if you add a couple of cocktails to the mix.
