No matter what time of year you visit, Kamloops has something to offer. Come when it’s blanketed in snow, and you can zip down the ski runs at Sun Peaks or Harper Mountain. Visit in summer, and you can hike thigh-burning trails or paddle along the Thompson River while keeping eyes peeled for cougars and bears. Meanwhile, the charming downtown has cute restaurants, bars and bakeries – and lovely hotels, many with pools. Whether you fancy your dip indoor or outdoor, here are the best hotels with pools in Kamloops, bookable via Culture Trip.

Coast Kamloops Hotel & Conference Centre, for a tropical time

Surrounded by lush tropical plants and boasting a frothing hot tub, the pool area at Coast is definitely a cut above the average. It’s also delightfully spacious – a virtue, no doubt, influenced by the fact that this rambling resort has plenty of room for you to spread out in its outside-downtown locale. After your dip, retire to soothing bedrooms painted in sage green, some of which come with kitchenettes, patios or views over the Thompson Valley.

Delta Hotels by Marriott Kamloops, for rooftop relaxing

If you’re seeking a central location right in the heart of Kamloops, the Delta delivers. It also delivers on poolside fun: a heated rooftop pool, bathed in rays, comes with parasol-shaded lounge chairs and a jacuzzi tub for soothing tired muscles. A fitness center is on hand if you want a proper workout, but, personally, we’d rather work off calories by popping into the local shops and wandering through Riverside Park. Return to modern, fresh rooms overlooking the surrounding hills.

The Thompson Hotel, for a downtown dip

With its uplit wooden ceiling, the indoor pool area at the Thompson feels especially atmospheric when the day starts to wane, and the waters begin to look rich and glossy. The bedrooms at this downtown stay, with their mauve walls and grey woods, are moody after dark, too. If you’re traveling as a family, book the dedicated suite with its two queen beds and one king, separated by a partial wall. Or try a room with a kitchenette, where you can save cash by making your own lunches and dinners.

Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Kamloops, for a sunrise swim

The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites seems built with busy travelers in mind. It’s not just the Express Start breakfast kiosk, where you can grab coffee, eggs and yogurt to take with you on the go. Nor is it the North Shore locale, minutes from activity-packed McArthur Island Park, or the on-site fitness center with bikes and treadmills. It’s also the pool area, equipped with a heated indoor plunge pool and two hot tubs. It opens at an astoundingly early 5am, so you can get splashing bright and early.

Wingate by Wyndham Kamloops, for diving into the local area

When exploring is on the agenda – be it the region’s ski slopes or the award-winning British Columbia wineries – it pays to have a pad on the Trans-Canada Highway. Wingate by Wyndham has more than just location to entice, though. There is, of course, the pool, with brightly painted Adirondack chairs for lounging in. But there’s also the restaurant-bar, where you can watch the game, and comfy rooms with moody lighting and blue accent walls. Come to think of it, you may not want to head out exploring after all…

Sandman Signature Kamloops Hotel, for a scenic swim

Framed by windows looking out to greenery, the airy pool space at Sandman Signature has a pleasant indoor-outdoor vibe, without actually exposing you to the elements. It’s just another example of the thoughtful touches at this downtown hotel, popular with both business and leisure travelers. Rooms have plum views over the river and hills, too, with soothing mauve and grey tones that balance urban cool and timeless style. The longer you stay, the more the rate drops, so consider booking in for the long haul.

Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Kamloops, for blue sky thinking

The funky lobby – juicy color pops, blow-up photographs, flickering fireplace – sets a bright tone for your stay at Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott, perched just off the Trans-Canada Highway southwest of downtown Kamloops. The dining area, with its lime green banquettes and bedrooms, with their golden yellow falls carry on the vibe. The pool? It’s indoor, heated and set below a blazing sky-blue ceiling next to a balmy whirlpool and citrus-hued lounge chairs.

Accent Inns Kamloops, for floating al fresco

With so much amazing local produce – from award-winning wines to epic fruit and top-quality meat – self-catering in British Columbia is a no-brainer. Accent Inns makes it easy, equipping rooms with kitchenettes for prepping tasty breakfasts or light snacks. But whether or not you choose to cook, if you visit here in summer you’ll want to make the most of the outdoor pool – licked by rays and fringed by an enormous inflatable rubber duck (why not?). Book a room overlooking the pool, and you can scope out when it’s quiet, rushing down for a quick solo dip.
