A bucket-list vacation to Asia, Europe or the Middle East can inspire eager travelers to pick up their pace, packing their schedules with dozens of activities to explore, sites to see and restaurants to enjoy—so much so that simple relaxation can fall by the wayside. But sometimes, building in time to lounge by the hotel pool is totally worth it. At many international Hilton hotels, you’ll find swimming pools with stunning views that allow guests to absorb the international scene while also getting some much-needed rest and relaxation.
From views of glittering cityscapes to bright-blue Mediterranean vistas, here are a handful of Hilton hotels (trust us, there are way more) with pool views that vacationers won’t soon forget.

The rooftop area is complete with a lake-view bar that offers cocktails and small bites by day, and upscale dining and entertainment at night.
