Is there a more decadent hotel feature than a beautiful rooftop pool? Whether it’s views of the city or beach (or both!), you deserve only the best for your honeymoon. Take a dip with stunning scenery all around, cheers to the rest of your life with a poolside cocktail, and watch the sunrise and sunset. The biggest problem you’ll have is tearing yourselves away to go explore! Let’s take you around the world to our best honeymoon hotels with rooftop pools…
It’s all about the world’s largest infinity rooftop pool at one of Singapore’s signature hotels, Marina Bay Sands. The views of the glittering cityscape are unrivalled. Watch the sunset with a cocktail and see the city come alive at night with thousands of twinkling lights.
You can request a view of the famed Gardens by the Bay from your room. With restaurants by some of our international favourites like CUT by Wolfgang Puck and Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay, dining in the hotel is a highlight. All of Singapore’s highlights, like Chinatown & Little India, Universal Studios and the Museum of Ice Cream, are nearby. It’s the perfect addition to your Asia honeymoon itinerary.
Nimb Hotel – Copenhagen Denmark
Copenhagen is a compact European capital city that is not short of a cool design hotel but Nimb Hotel is a fairytale. This unique property, inspired by a Moorish-style palace, was completed in 1909. It’s a must if you’re planning a trip to Copenhagen on a Northern Europe or Scandinvia honeymoon itinerary.
The hotel has a Moroccan hammam and the Nimb Bar has a divine fairy-tale cocktail menu with names like “The rose of Agrabah”. Travel in summer (April to September) for Nimb’s exclusive rooftop pool. The emerald water even has a built-in tide with views of the Tivoli Gardens. Hygge heaven.

137 Pillars Suites & Residences – Bangkok, Thailand
We love, love, love Bangkok in Thailand. There is so much to see and do. Visit a floating market, take a street food tour and explore the palace and temples. But for the uninitiated, Bangkok can be an assault on the senses, so a luxury retreat is essential in this fun mega city.
It’s also not short of a hotel rooftop pool. 137 Pillars Suites & Residences has not one, but two beautiful infinity pools. On level 27 you’ll find a jacuzzi and pool. On the rooftop, the there is the future classic pool with 360° views. The suites also have balconies and oversized daybeds. Pure luxury.
When we think of our favourite honeymoon hotel rooftop pool, the Address Beach Resort Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is definitely at the top of the list. Not only is it in the Guinness World Records for the highest outdoor infinity pool, it’s also one of the most insta-worthy.
We love the Deluxe Sea View Room with Balcony, with views of the Arabian Gulf and the world’s highest observation wheel at Ain Dubai. You’re right on the beach too if you need some wave. Just a short drive away, you’ll find Dubai’s highlights like Burj Khalifa and Aquaventure – the best waterpark in the world.
We’re obsessed with Cape Town in South Africa and The Silo Hotel is an architectural masterpiece in the heart of the V&A waterfront. The iconic building houses the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, which holds the largest collection of African art on the continent.
The rooms are unique. It’s hard to pick a favourite as all have a balcony overlooking this beautiful city, but the Deluxe Superior Suite is worth a look. The rooftop pool is exclusively for guests only. Although it will be tough to tear yourselves away from this stunning hotel, there are endlessly fun things to do in Cape Town. Explore Table Mountain, see penguins on Boulder’s Beach, visit Robben Island.
Is there a more iconic view than the one from 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge? Concrete jungle where dreams are made. The Manhattan city skyline in New York is one of our favourite views in the USA and in the world.
1 Hotels are super sustainable too. Think energy efficient systems and rainwater reclamation. It’s tough to pick a favourite room category, a view of the Brooklyn Bridge or the incredible skyline view? We love the Liberty Studio Suite with views of the lady herself, the Statue of Liberty.
Grab bikes and cycle across the bridge to explore lower Manhattan’s thriving restaurant, bar and shopping scene. We love that some of our favourite neighbourhoods, the Lower East Side, Chinatown, Soho and Tribeca are only 20 minutes away (or hop in an iconic yellow cab if you don’t want to get there on two wheels!).
Overlooking one of Rio’s legendary beaches, Hotel Fasano, has long been the perfect hideaway in Ipanema Beach. Designed by Philippe Starck, this design hotel pays homage to the golden age of bossa nova music.
The Deluxe Ocean Front rooms have balconies with Atlantic Ocean views, Salvador Dali-esque mirrors, warm-toned interiors and complimentary Havaianas flip-flops (when in Rio, after all!). Surrounded by the Corcovado and Morro Dois Irmãos, Fasano’s rooftop pool is one of the best in the world.
An 11th-century palace set on the cliff side of the remarkable Amalfi coastline. We’re in love with Caruso. One of the best views and most luxurious hotels in Europe, Caruso, is pure romance. Original frescos, lemon trees, rose bushes and olive vines, antique furniture – the perfect honeymoon hotel.
Stay in a Junior Suite and book the Krug Table for a night of private dining. Set at the highest point of the stunning town of Ravello, the infinity pool is magic. The pool concierge can bring you an Amazon Kindle full of classic books, a cocktail or a spritz of Evian water. Luxurious indulgence.
How to pick the best honeymoon rooftop hotel pool in Los Angeles, four alone in West Hollywood could have made the list! Where Hollywood meets Beverly Hills, the West Hollywood EDITION is the perfect spot to add to your California road trip honeymoon. The Loft Terrace rooms have incredible views of downtown LA. Try the Mezcals and Tequila menu at The Roof. The pool is perched above Sunset Boulevard with views of the Hollywood Hills. Unadulterated honeymoon glam.
On Ibiza’s east coast beach town of Es Canar, we love the slick design of Bless Hotel. Book the Suite Jacuzzi Terrace. Relax on a divine cabana at Epic Infinity Lounge, the rooftop pool & rooftop bar, with full views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Dine on food designed by the famed Spanish Michelin-star chef Martín Berasategu. Ideal for recovering from a decadent night in Ibiza town which is just 30-minutes away.
Of course Ibiza is more than just great parties! It’s one of the most beautiful islands in Spain and all of Europe. Go snorkelling in the blue Mediterranean sea, visit the stunning island of Formentera and watch the sunset over Es Vedra.
Another 1 Hotel on the list and we’re sure you’ll agree it’s not hard to see why. 1 Hotel South Beach is a bright, sustainable beachfront hotel has stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean on Miami Beach. Sleep in an Ocean View Junior Suite King Balcony – wake up for sunrise.
Exploring Miami is a lot of fun. Take a food tour of Little Havana, drive a Lamborghini and jet ski on Biscayne Bay. When you’re ready to chill, there are FOUR pools, but spending the day in a cabana at the adults-only Rooftop Pool is an absolute must.
Palma is one of Spain’s and Europe’s underrated gems. The capital of the Balearic island of Mallorca is an architectural treasure trove with its Gothic cathedral and Moorish fortress. There is a flourishing dining scene with over 10 Michelin-star restaurants. Go sea kayaking, quad biking and sailing.
Nakar Hotel is right in the centre of the city. We love the Junior Suites overlooking Avenue Jaime III. On the rooftop pool, by day, marvel at the views of the city and sea. By night, watch the sunset across this Mediterranean gem.
We hope you love some of these honeymoon hotel rooftop pools as much as we do. Let us know in the comments or on social media if you book a hotel with a rooftop pool!
