Europe’s Top 10 Outdoor Luxury Hotel Pools

Europe-Best Luxury Hotels-Outdoor Pools

 

Where are Europe's Best Luxury Hotel Outdoor Pools? Plenty of European luxury hotels have indoor pools, but only a few of the best European 5-star hotels have outdoor pools. Even if most of your trip is focused on art, history, museums and culture, it's worth including one of these luxury hotels in your stay for a more resort-like vacation experience.

1. Park Hotel Vitznau, Lake Lucerne area, Switzerland

Extra points go to the Park Hotel Vitznau, given the magnificent lakeside setting for its heated outdoor infinity pool, open all year round. It's 68 feet long, so ample to swim some laps in, although for the more aesthetically and less athletically inclined, the deckchairs and jacuzzi beckon.

In addition to its lovely setting, the Park Hotel Vitznau offers fantastic cuisine at Restaurant Prisma, and uniquely themed suites and residences (splurge for a lake view).

2. Amanzoe, Greece

At Amanzoe, each Pool Pavilion has its own private pool, but for a more expansive pool, there are four pools at Amanzoe's Beach Club, a brief golf cart ride from the resort. Amanzoe is one of the most architecturally spectacular Amans, and the best Aman in Europe. It can be a long drive from Athens, so I recommend taking the helicopter transfer.

  • Daily full breakfast for up to two in-room guests
  • Complimentary a la carte Lunch for two one time during stay (excluding beverages)
  • Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability

5. Four Seasons Florence, Italy

Summer in Italy can be extremely hot, so the Four Seasons Florence is the perfect base. The hotel is more like an urban retreat, including Florence's largest private garden (11 acres), which was planted in the 15th century. The swimming pool is a more modern addition, but a very welcome one, giving you some true vacation time to unwind from busy days of sightseeing and Florence's many museums and cultural experiences.
