10 Luxe Cabanas Around the World You Have to Visit

The ultimate in poolside rest and relaxation.

When it comes to poolside luxury, some hotels do it better than the rest. Whether you’re looking for breathtaking views, posh amenities, a personal butler or all of the above, these 10 luscious cabanas can’t be beat:

The South of France is the capital of luxury so it makes sense that we start our list at the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo. Here, the Odyssey pool haven was the vision of legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld and features a heated saltwater pool, private cabanas, terraced gardens and a pool house. Perhaps most noteworthy though is the al fresco-style glass installation portraying the journey of Ulysses.

If private beaches are more your speed then check out Casa Marina in Key West, Florida. Located on the only private beach in Key West, guests can lounge in their poolside cabanas fully stocked with a television, mini-fridge, fruit and drinks. As if that wasn’t enough, every 90 minutes, a beach concierge brings guests small surprises ranging from chilled eucalyptus towels and sunglass cleanings to cocktail tastings from the resort’s rum bar.

Opened in November of 2015, guests staying at Thompson Playa del Carmen can reserve a cabana on the hotel’s rooftop, which also happens to be the highest point in Playa del Carmen. Besides the 360-degree views of downtown and the Caribbean Sea, each cabana comes equipped with food and bottle service, gourmet mini bar and a television. Need to cool off? Swim over to the in-water loungers in the infinity pool or grab a drink at the swim-up bar.

Inside each cabana, guests can enjoy a television, mini-fridge and an oversized chaise lounge. The poolside attendants will also bring you anything you need but here they offer something a little different called a Mood Menu, which pairs guests with cocktails that match their mood.

We’re headed back to Miami for another stunning cabana, this time at the Conrad Miami. Located in the heart of Brickell Avenue, guests make their way to the rooftop pool of the Conrad and take in the stunning Miami cityscape while relaxing in a private cabana. If things get too hot, cool off with their refreshing popsicle cocktail called the "Miami Bellini."
