Buy a Day Pass to These Private Pools in Houston

You probably took advantage from some of the city’s public swimming spots for a summer in H-Town — neighborhood pools, water parks or even the lakes and lagoons that live on the outskirts — to relieve you from the unbearable heat.

But a high-end pool experience is sometimes what a great group of friends or family experience lacks. If there was a to-do list for the perfect summer in Houston, relaxing in a private pool with an inflatable ring is near the top. Luckily, Houston offers beautiful digs with unparalleled privacy and unique day packages for guests to enjoy extravagant diving. We’ve listed some of the best private pools in town for you to enjoy a private dip in.

You will feel like you are on vacation as Domain Heights allows you to sunbathe in the pool along the tanning ledges. If you’re not a resident, no worries – keep an eye out for ticketed events, such as the Nach-Yo Regular Tequila Tasting May 21.

The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa

The Houstonian has not one, not two, but three swimming pools, open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., that guests and members can use, a relaxing warm-water garden pool for a dip after a massage; a 25-meter pool for sports enthusiasts and a resort pool with waterfalls, geysers, water sports and a 32-foot slide for children.

The hotel offers free access to guests from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and non-guests can purchase passes worth $40 via Resort Pass, which gives access to the artificial river, the heated infinity pool, towel service and catering. Upgrade your package for a few hundred more and rent a daybed, cabana or pergola.

EaDo’s El Segundo Swim Club is the resort-style pool (without the resort price tag) this metropolitan city needs.
