In a city as packed with luxury hotels as Los Angeles, it’s not hard to find accommodations with a jacuzzi in which to relax – in fact, the choice is almost overwhelming. To narrow it down, Culture Trip looks at LA’s top hotels for hot-tub enthusiasts, featuring private whirlpools overlooking the Pacific and poolside jacuzzis in which to sip cocktails. Whatever your style of soaking, these are the nine best hotels with jacuzzis in Los Angeles, California.

Maritime-style accommodations are spread over 70 guest rooms and 30 suites, featuring sea and/or city views and deep spa tubs (several suites also have high-tech gourmet kitchens).

Attention to luxury detail is evident before you even enter the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire: turning off Wilshire Boulevard, you’ll pass under a gateway modeled on the one at Buckingham Palace, past street lamps imported from Edinburgh and walk on cobblestones flown in from Italy. Some of the larger suites feature jacuzzis for private use, but there’s also a heated spa tub in the Mediterranean-style pool area. Bookable VIP experiences include helicopter tours, a trip to the boutiques of Rodeo Drive with a personal shopper and a night’s “glamping” on the 10-floor terrace.

In the early 1970s, businessman Fillmore Crank built this characterful North Hollywood boutique for his wife, actress Beverly Garland. The couple bequeathed the property to their son James in 2000, who annexed the Front Yard – a vibrant eatery inspired by fresh Californian ingredients – and improved the outdoor spaces. Retro-chic characterizes the suites and rooms (all of which have private balconies), with warm splashes of orange on cushions and curtains. The swimming pool area features chaise lounges, mattresses and an adults-only jacuzzi in which to relax with a cocktail from the Lobby Bar.

    The marble bathrooms at Hotel Bel-Air – which was originally built as offices for oil tycoon and developer Alphonzo Bell in 1922 – go way beyond the functional. Not only are they fitted with spa tubs in which to soak with a glass of champagne, they also feature built-in TVs and heated floors. When not kicking back in your luxury bathroom, head to the hotel’s legendary oval pool: added in the 1940s as a horse riding ring, it was the setting for one of Marilyn Monroe’s most famous Vogue shoots. Poolside snacks and lunch and dinner menus are courtesy of Michelin-star chef Wolfgang Puck.
