Love the summer sun but want a break from the heat? Take a dip, enjoy the view or slip and slide at one of the season’s iconic hangouts: the pool.
Get ready to (swim)suit up as you check out five of Hilton Grand Vacations Club’s most appealing spots to soak up the sun and make a splash!
Unwind next to lava rocks and waterfalls at Kings’ Land’s 20,000-square-foot pool (above). Featuring whirlpool spas and four slides, this incredible pool is just waiting to host a day of fun. Grab a snack and a cocktail while you catch a game poolside at the Bistro Restaurant and Pool Bar, which features a hand-carved bar made of Hawaiian hardwood and a 60-inch television.
This new property is appropriately named. Ocean Oak Resort’s oceanfront pool serves up sweeping views of the Atlantic as well as the live oaks of Hilton Head Island. Walk into this zero-entry pool—a gradual slope allows you to descend slowly into the water without steps—and enjoy spray features or the view from the adjacent pool bar, sundeck or activity lawn.
There’s nothing quite like heading to the rooftop as summer days drift into summer nights. Situated in the center of Honolulu’s entertainment district, Hokulani Waikiki’s rooftop pool and bar Nā Lani is the perfect place to sit back and sip on a cocktail while you dangle your feet in the water or relax inside one of the many private cabanas. From atop, take in impressive views of the Koolau mountain range, Diamond Head, the happening Kalakaua Avenue and other city streets as well as the Pacific Ocean.
Let Elara’s eye-catching pool, whirlpool tubs and cabanas entice you into a relaxing day under the Nevada sun. Prefer to sightsee and swim? Elara is situated conveniently on the Strip, which makes its palm tree-encircled pool an easy and pleasant place to cool off after exploring the city’s attractions. Head to the seasonal poolside bar and grill for an Elara Colada, a Las Vegas twist on the tropical cocktail that blends pineapple vodka, fruit juices and crème of coconut.

While swimming behind a large waterfall as myriad jets shoot around you, you may find it difficult to believe you’re in the heart of Orlando. That’s because Tuscany Village’s large, Mediterranean-style pool invites guests to explore its many cul-de-sacs and discover its many water features and fountains. During your stay, check with the front desk for scheduled poolside activities, including karaoke parties, movies, beach blanket bingo, dance lessons and more.
