Never mind the expansive coastline of beautiful beaches – sometimes you just want a hot hotel with a cool pool; somewhere less sandy (and less shark-populated) to top up your tan, read a book, swim laps, entertain the kids or unwind with a poolside drink. Luckily, Perth is awash with indoor, outdoor, rooftop, heated, family-friendly, resort-style lagoons and infinity pools. So pack your sunscreen and splash your cash on these Perth hotels with pools. They’re even bookable on Culture Trip, to make things super-simple.

Of all the Perth hotels with indoor pools and saunas, this is the fanciest. It’s a luxurious landmark with a lap pool and floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the convict-built Town Hall. Be sure to explore the rest of this historical building, with a tempting array of bars and boutiques as well as places to eat. COMO is best known for the indigenous-inspired menu at the Wildflower restaurant, so here’s your chance to try native succulents and herbs – or perhaps a sandalwood-nut praline for dessert.
