As the summer heat descends upon Paris, it can be challenging to find places to cool down. Of course, pools are ideal for this, however, few Parisian hotels actually have one. From luxurious retreats, to boutique hotels in real Parisian neighborhoods, to a hotel floating on the Seine, here are some of the best hotels with pools in Paris.
One of the most impressive hotel pools in Paris is the huge one at this former municipal swimming pool turned hip boutique hotel. The hotel’s 104 rooms and 20 suites encircle the heated, year-round outdoor pool. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also an indoor pool at its Clarins spa which also has a hammam and sauna. After your refreshing dip you can chill out by the main pool or on the hotel’s trendy rooftop terrace.
This defunct postal sorting center in the 16th arrondissement was completely reinvented by star designer Philippe Starck. Inspired by 1930s modernism, the interiors also feature a raw, natural color palette and carefully chosen design objects. The hotel’s sports’ club has two pools: a 22 meter-long one ideal for swimming lengths and a 6 x 6 meter pool of hot water for relaxing. Afterwards, soak up some rays on the hotel’s fabulous rooftop terrace.
Unquestionably Paris’s most unique hotel with a pool, OFF is found floating on the Seine near the Gare d’Austerlitz. Guests of its 54 rooms and 4 suites have access to its plunge pool overlooking the river. Flanked by a bar which has great cocktails and DJ nights, it’s the perfect place to unwind after exploring the 13th district’s cool street art, modern architecture or before discovering the hip bars which line the riverbanks in this pocket of the city.
For an opulent splurge, book in at this regal 5-star hotel near the Parc Monceau. It boasts one of the largest outdoor pools in Paris, which is surrounded by a verdant terrace. On cooler days you can opt for its equally splendid indoor pool. The hotel has an excellent cocktail bar, restaurant and royally plush rooms.
Found on a quiet street near the Louvre, Palais Royal and Place Vendome, this boutique hotel features a stylish design which wonderfully blends modernity and eternal Parisian elegance. It has a lovely courtyard garden with a sunny terrace, as well as a spa and a swimming pool, which are bathed in daylight, unlike many of the other hotel pools in Paris found underground.
Sitting on the edge of the hip Les Batignolles district of the 17th arrondissement, this couples-only boutique hotel has an 11 meter-long pool which guests can book for private time frames. Next to this is a stylish spa with a salt cave, steam room and Sensory Sky showers. A serene ambiance reigns in its chic lounge with a vertical garden, cascading fountain and courtyard terrace. Its rooms have been specifically created for couples and include a seductive decor, swings, smart technology, double Jacuzzi tubs and some rooms have private terraces with outdoor Jacuzzis.
Found near the lively Rue du Commerce, lined with shops and cafés, this hotel in the 15th district is a great option for taking in local Parisian life. As its name indicates, the hotel revolves around its several gardens: a French-style garden inspired by Chateaux of Versailles and Villandry, a third-floor Japanese garden and a rooftop garden inspired by the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech. Its spa is home to a heated pool with a waterfall, a hot tub, hammam and gym.
Occupying a regal Haussmannian building on Avenue de l’Opera, this sleek luxurious hotel definitely has the most atmospheric pool in the city. The focal point of its La Colline spa, the space has been created for guests to experience the four elements uniting, thanks to granite flooring, wood-paneling, flickering candles, and a mirrored ceiling reflecting the long pool.
