You can call off the hunt for the best summer vibes in Sydney, team. We’ve just found it. Pier One (aka the luxe AF hotel on the harbour) have decided to install a pool out the back of their hotel and goddamnit we’re so into it. We’re not kidding when we say this is ultimate #summergoals and since Sydney is overloaded with epic summer spots, that’s saying a lot.
The hotel’s private pontoon has been fully decked out for summer. Complete with artificial turf, umbrellas, deck chairs and a full bar menu to match—you need to head here STAT. Now for the part we’re seriously excited about: The Pool also brings allllll the fun, with water bicycles (as amazing as it sounds), a mini driving range (complete with eco-friendly golf balls) and luxury pool toys so you can float around in your private pool and snap the perfect Insta shot.
Now, the food. Pier One is bringing a few of their favourite menu items to the party, so you’ll be snacking on burgers, spiced calamari rings, chicken wings marinated in either a Korean or Indonesian dressing. And they’ve obviously designed an extra special cocktail menu especially for the pop-up because summer + cocktails = mandatory.
The Pool will open on Friday 8 December and FYI you can also book this place out for all your mates (up to 30 mates, actually).
