Which hotels in Milan have the best pools? If you’re a family with kids or a couple looking for a great spa and swim, a hotel with a pool is a huge plus.

For those of you who travel in luxury, we have listed your best hotels with pools in Milan below:

1. Best Hotel Pool: Palazzo Parigi

The Palazzo Parigi Hotel & Grand Spa Milan (or Milano) is just a few steps from Milan’s haute fashion district and the bohemian Brera district. The lobby here is probably the grandest in Milan. This vast marble hallway, complete with columns and a sweeping marble staircase, feels palatial indeed, and the beautiful floral arrangements adorning every surface reflect the elegance and sophistication this luxury hotel offers. Aside from the grandeur, reasons to stay here are the location, the gorgeous views that many of the suites offer over Milan, and the best and largest spa in Milan with the best and largest luxury hotel pool in Milan (pictured above).

At 1,700 square meters, this is the largest spa in Milan. The spa offers numerous treatment rooms, and with the exception of the candle-lit corridors, the entire wellness area is bathed in natural light. The pool here is large by Milan standards, with large windows and luxuriously padded loungers flanking each side. Behind the pool is a jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and shower next to an ice machine so you can indulge your body with wellness.

2. Four Seasons Milan

The Four Seasons Milan (or Four Seasons Hotel Milano) occupies a 15th-century former convent tucked away on a tiny side street in the heart of Milan. It exudes glamor and sophistication with a stylish bar, a restaurant that extends onto an enviably leafy and flower-filled courtyard, and a stunning spa tucked away in the historic depths of the monastery’s basement.

The spa is excellent nonetheless. Designed by the Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola, you will find a very unusual and warm pool in the former basement of the monastery. This pool is accessed by steps between thick pillars and you swim in its warm waters under 19th-century vaulted ceilings. Although this pool isn’t big, it’s the most atmospheric in Milan.

There are luxurious changing rooms, a steam room, mood showers and numerous treatment rooms including a his and hers massage room with a relaxation lounge with a whirlpool and a fireplace, all set like a tomb in an ancient pyramid.

The basement location of this spa is unique and should not be overlooked, even if you just walk down to the pool. There are special children’s times in this pool. We used it during family time between 2:30pm and 4:45pm. There’s also a high-tech, multi-machine gym in the depths of the hotel.

3. Bulgari Hotel Milan

The Bulgari Hotel Milan (or Bulgari Hotel Milano) is one of the smallest and most luxurious boutique luxury hotels in Milan. It is located on an ultra-exclusive private street in the center of Milan, complete with 24/7 security and gates. Once in this affluent neighborhood, turn left and drive up a short ramp to reach the Bulgari Hotel Milano.

I don’t think spa pools are more sparkling than the spa pool at the Bulgari Hotel Milan. The tiles on the pool steps are pure gold, and the mosaic tiles throughout the rest of the pool sparkle like jewels. This is a quiet and luxurious place to relax on a comfortable lounger.

4. Mandarin Oriental Milan

The Mandarin Oriental Milan has a 900-square-foot spa with six treatment rooms, a hair salon, a fitness center, and an atmospheric subterranean pool that’s partially lit by candles. The pool has sun loungers on one side and is surrounded by fringe style blinds on two sides. It’s a very relaxing and sophisticated area to relax in.

5. Grand Hotel Tremezzo

Located just a few hours drive from Milan, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo is one of the best luxury hotels on the shores of Lake Como. If you are looking for picture-perfect outdoor pools, this is certainly the place for you. It has the most fantastic views imaginable from its rooms, bars and restaurants along with a beautiful pool that floats right on the lake. Banana trees and flowers surround an additional pool behind the hotel, and an excellent spa with the same fantastic views over the waterfront offers another fun, whirlpool-style spa pool.

This hotel is all about the views and the pools; There were three beautiful pools here. In front of the hotel is a waterfront floating pool with a beach club serving lunch and drinks. A stretch of sand on the lake shore invites you to relax, with sun loungers carefully placed to enjoy the best views.

Behind the hotel is a pool surrounded by banana trees, flowers and a cafe. This pool also had an amazing view of the lake as it is elevated into the mountain and sits above the lake.

The last pool is the spa pool reserved mainly for adults. It’s located under the bar, with sun loungers overlooking the view and a small indoor swimming area and an outdoor jacuzzi.
