Extraordinary views, killer cocktails in uber-hip bars, lush gardens and crystal blue infinity swimming pools. Sometimes with all 4! Read on for Our Ultimate Guide to Hotels and their Stunning Rooftop Terraces.
- Continentale, Florence
This is style in spades. In the absolute beating heart of renaissance Florence is a retreat so gorgeously chic that we are somewhat in awe and perhaps most stunning of all, is La Terraza, the rooftop bar on the building’s medieval tower. A French martini here as the sun sets is possibly the best spot in town.
- Ohla Hotel, Barcelona
Gloriously seductive “chill out” terrace with fabulous views, white loungers and cushioned daybeds on a dark teak bed and a blue glass sided swimming pool that seems to drop straight off the edge of the roof.
- Bloom, Venice
Sip a glass of super chilled prosecco here and enjoy the views of the city that showcase all that is stunning and magical about Venice.
- Fresh Hotel, Athens
This budget boutique downtown winner packs in a very sexy rooftop bar with a pool and fantastic views of the floodlit Acropolis – and just could be the smartest place for a late night drink under the stars.
- Hotel Palacio de Villapanés, Seville
It may not have the biggest, but we think it is the cutest of terraces with great skyline views to accompany some tapas and a signature cocktail.
- Grace Vanderbilt, Rhode Island, US
Enjoy stunning New England sunsets over the harbour. In the summer take part in events such as the rosé champagne Mondays – sounds good to us!
- Dar Mo’da, Marrakech
Perhaps the star of this riad is the magnificent roof terrace with its spectacular views of the city and the nearby Koutubia mosque set against the backdrop of the Atlas mountains. Just the place to relax in the sun, dip in the plunge pool and sip sweet mint tea.If our rooftop terraces have got you all of a twitter then you should see what’s inside! Gorgeous and stylish, our hotels are individually handpicked and reviewed so that you don’t have to worry.
