With Labor Day weekend less than a week away, we have to face the truth: we’re not ready to say goodbye to summer yet. The warm, balmy days that brought us many trips to the beach, glasses of rosé, and breathtaking sunsets are simply too sweet to quit. So what’s one to do when summer Fridays are over and the temperature slowly starts dropping? Plan a well-deserved vacation, of course. Saying goodbye to summer is much less bittersweet with one last hurrah—one that involves many poolside days and soaking up every last ray of sun.
To make booking this all-important getaway a little easier, we rounded up the most idyllic hotel pools in regions where the weather stays a little warmer a little longer. Want to escape to the French Riviera, the coast of Mexico, or the vast Utah desert? Look no further than these dreamy hotels that guarantee nothing but long, lazy poolside days, balmy nights, and a healthy tan to last well into the fall. We bet you can’t get to the bottom without booking your next vacation.
