Long gone are the days when your only chance of soaking in a blissful resort pool had to involve splurging $200+ dollars per night on an overnight stay. And ciao, adios, hasta luego to having to “sneak in” to 4 and 5 star hotels while feeling guilty about it.

Daycation with Sam Wormser at AquaVie at the Westgate Hotel

Bliss Out

You might be craving relaxation, like Sam – a peaceful oasis where you can catch up on your latest beach read or tabloid magazine and sip on a delightful glass of bubbly. Maybe you’ll even indulge in a luxurious spa treatment or two. (Many of our partner resorts have spas on property, and some even offer a 10-20% discount on treatments when you book a day pass!)

Daycation at Hilton Mission Bay Resort with Sidney Hambsch

Family Goals

Or perhaps you’re a busy Mama like Sidney, holding down the fort with a toddler and juggling 435,614 things at any given time. Pile the family and their favorite floaties in the car and watch them splash and play in kiddie pools, lazy rivers, and sandy playgrounds. This could turn a typical “family fun day” into something more special and memorable. A cozy cabana can quickly turn into a spacious “home base” amidst an idyllic afternoon in the sun.

Pools like the W Hollywood offer a live DJ on weekends, and the Harrah’s in SoCal has adult pools and winding lazy rivers. The Confidante in Miami sweetens the deal with a complimentary bottle of champagne for each cabana purchased. There’s no better way to celebrate a special occasion!
