As the sun moves from Long Island to Long Beach, we know one thing for sure: the United States has plenty of places to work on your tan. No matter if you’re taking a city break in a major metropolis, getting lost in astounding national parks or kicking back on the beach-heavy coastline, these hotels with private pools will put you in the holiday mood. Book one with Culture Trip.

Amangiri, Utah, for dreamy desert dips

Visiting Amangiri isn’t a vacation; it’s a journey for your mind, body and soul. The tranquil water pavilion is a space where your worries will float away in heated step and plunge pools. Collect your thoughts in the private relaxation area of the flotation pavilion and prepare to lose touch with the chaos of everyday life as you wander around Canyon Country, only to find your way back to the pool for more uninterrupted reflection later.

Isla Bella Beach Resort & Spa, Florida, for decompression in the Keys

To choose a pool over the sparkling waters around the Florida Keys may seem insane, but that’s only because you haven’t yet slipped into the one at Isla Bella. Floating ever so contently on Marathon, this resort and spa has a shady pool pod waiting with your name on it, complete with two chaise longues for tanning and a cooler stocked with drinks to quench your thirst as the afternoon heat rises.

Garden of the Gods Resort and Club, Colorado, for natural drama at the springs

In a place so boldly named, you rightly expect a majestic pool complex. Unsurprisingly, there is one. The Pikes Peak mountain range and red rock formations provide a dramatic backdrop for the infinity pool, while the family-friendly Three Graces pool has a sloped entry for swimmers to wade in at their own pace. A recreation pool and kids’ splash pad ensure that you’ll get maximum use out of the club’s plush towels.

Asbury Ocean Club, New Jersey, for vintage vibes

A pool deck so serene that you’d swear you were California dreaming, Asbury Ocean Club proves that at least one of best hotels with private pools in the USA is hanging ten on the East Coast. The granita cart seemingly follows the arc of the sun, moving from one end of the terrace to the other as it provides guests with Italian refreshment. You’ll lose yourself in luxury the moment you cross the wisteria-draped pergola, scoot into a seat under the cover of trees, and sip a jack rose until the sun stops shining.

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, New York, for a sky-scraping swim

There’s no better way to get into the Empire State of Mind than to rise from the cool waters of 1 Hotel’s rooftop pool and open your eyes to the Manhattan skyline. No beach balls or unicorn rafts will obscure your view; only the occasional guest floating by, gawking at the Big Apple view alongside you. Take on the concrete jungle whenever you please or make the city wait a New York minute while you add the finishing touches to your tan.

Enchantment Resort, Arizona, for dip-dye skies in Sedona

When you think of hotels with private pools in the USA, you’ll forever think of Sedona after one night at Enchantment Resort. Float lazily on your back, looking up at wide views of the Arizona sky that are as calm and freeing as the water beneath you. Just before you lose yourself in a sea of blue, the lush green trees and imposing red canyon bluffs surrounding the resort color your relaxation with shades of beauty, whimsy and enchantment.

Montage Laguna Beach, California, for A-list lounging

Even with Laguna Beach shining brightly in the background, the extravagantly tiled Mosaic Pool at Montage commands attention. The residential-style villas, creative cocktails in the Lobby Lounge and California Wildflower Ritual at the spa all play second fiddle to this heavenly space. You and your partner can relax peacefully in the whirlpool while the kids safely enjoy the children’s pool and play area.

Auberge du Soleil, California, for natural highs in Napa

Auberge du Soleil’s La Plage pool is so effortlessly sexy that even the hottest of California’s crowd wonder how it nails its balance of seductiveness and indifference. Maybe it’s how delicately the lounges are canopied with gauze, or how the vineyard views from the sunny terrace seem comfortably positioned for an eternity of sun worshiping. Either way, it’s sure to leave an impression.
