There’s a vacation type to suit everyone in Maine, as famous for its rocky coastline as it is for its mountains. Whether you’re visiting for the sandy beaches, a city break or an exhilarating dash down the slopes, these Maine hotels with hot tubs give you the ideal place to unwind. Check into one of these inviting hotels, bookable via Culture Trip.

1. Cliff House Maine, for coastal comfort near the Nubble Lighthouse

Hotel, Luxury

Reclined on the rocks above the Atlantic, this coastal gem pairs contemporary elegance with nautical. All rooms have soft grey wood paneling and balconies, but book the Coastal King for lighthouse views. Bask in the outdoor hot tub after a plate of tater tots smothered in brown butter lobster from the lobster shack. When you’ve had enough salty sea air, head to the luminous spa and gaze out at the ocean while enjoying a Seasonal Salt of the Seas massage inspired by the seasons.

2. Meadowmere Resort, for Roman-inspired relaxation near Ogunquit Beach

Enjoy your in-room hot tub by a crackling fire in one of the Luxury Suites. The beach is within walking distance, or there’s a cozy on-site New England-style pub with live entertainment if you like music while you chow a warming bowl of corn chowder. The main hotel features accessible and environmentally friendly indoor and outdoor hot tubs, taking inspiration from the ancient Roman springs dedicated to the healing goddess, Minerva.

3. Ogunquit Hotel & Suites, for casual coastal charm near Ogunquit Beach

Just an hour from Boston, the pretty seaside village of Ogunquit is a haven for activity lovers with whale watching, kayaking, deep-sea fishing and more. You’ll relax afterwards in one of the traditionally-styled suites with lots of wood and nut-brown decor and private hot tubs or, if you’re feeling sociable, check out the enormous swimming pool and outdoor hot tub in the hotel grounds. You can do anything after a lazy Continental breakfast of granola, fruit, cereal and toasted bagels.

4. Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel, for rustic relaxation near Sugarloaf Mountain

There’s room for all your friends in the 30-person outdoor hot tub here. If you prefer less of a crowd, book one of the three-bedroom multilevel penthouses clad in plaid and wood with in-room hot tubs and a sauna. Afterwards, share a plate of Maine mussels cooked in white wine, preserved lemon, onion and crispy garlic at the hotel’s restaurant, 45 North, and decide which slopes or trails to hit the next day.

5. Jordan Hotel, for cozy comfort near the Sunday River

Jordan Hotel has visitors covered whatever the season. With ski-in, ski-out access and sweeping views over Sunday River’s western peaks, spending time in the heated outdoor pool and hot tub will soothe aching muscles after a day on the slopes. In warmer months, enjoy superb hiking or play a round of golf at the Sunday River golf club nearby. Cozy up in one- and two-bed suites with leather sofas and kitchens for whipping up your favourite breakfast dish.

6. Portland Regency Hotel & Spa, for old-school glamor near Casco Bay

Housed in an old armory, this quaint hotel sits among the cobbled streets of the boutique and cocktail bar-lined Old Port neighbourhood. The Governor and Regency suites have a whirlpool tub and two-person hot tub, respectively, and the full-service spa will soothe you with an array of Vichy showers, saunas and steam rooms. Afterwards, sip a Delightful Dalliance at the hotel’s Armory Lounge, a cocktail flavoured with orange blossom water and hibiscus sugar.

7. Grand Harbor Inn, for in-room relaxation near Camden Town Opera House

If you’re looking for an in-room hot tub in Maine, you’ll love this plush waterfront hotel. All of the rooms and suites come with hot tubs, gas fireplaces and richly upholstered beds and easy chairs by windows for sea air while you read your novel. Graze on the Continental breakfast from your private balcony, fresh quiche, house-made granola, fruit and artisan pastries delivered each morning with steaming Carrabassett Valley coffee.

8. The Bethel Inn Resort, for active rest near the White Mountains

The Bingham Suite at the historic Bethel Inn Resort scores a hat-trick with a couples hot tub, roaring fireplace and sweeping mountain views, but all rooms have relaxing, richly coloured decor. In the summertime, roam the 200-acre (81ha) grounds, play tennis and lawn games, idle in the lake house and paddle about on the water in canoes and kayaks. Weather less than balmy? Cozy up in the Millbrook Tavern, a wood-lined pub where you can sip a beer by a warming fire pit.

9. The Country Inn at Camden Rockport, for country comfort near Curtis Island Lighthouse

With 36 rooms and suites plus 11 cottages, the Country Inn offers accessible and pet-friendly options if you can’t leave your furry friend at home. Layers of cozy wood, richly coloured rugs and patchwork quilts set the scene. The Camden and Rockport suites and King Cottage each have their own jetted hot tubs for those who fancy some privacy, or the indoor pool and hot tub are great places to unwind after a day exploring Camden, where mountains meet the sea.
