Unfortunately, most of us have been in this same, sad situation: You get to the airport, grab a coffee and a healthy snack, and patiently wait at your gate—only to realize your flight just got canceled. Bummer, right? Well, maybe not, if your wellness-centric airport is located near a surprisingly chic hotel with a pool you can Zen out in while you’re passing the minutes before your rescheduled takeoff.

Multiple airport hotels offer dreamy accommodations where you can get your swim on, making the whole experience a lot more fun. (And, much less stressful.)

So the next time you travel, be sure your swimsuit is packed—just in case you get stuck waiting for your flight at one of these airport-adjacent hot spots. (And soon you won’t even have to “travel” beyond your terminal to take a dip—CNN reports that New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport is getting an on-site, luxury pool late next year.)

These 6 hotel airport swimming pools might be worth missing your flight.

Get Started
2/7

1. Premier Hotel O.R. Tambo: Johannesburg, South Africa

A quick mile and a half shuttle away from O.R. Tambo International Airport, the Premier Hotel O.R. Tambo‘s poolside oasis is lined with palms, making for the perfect mini-getaway near Johannesburg.

3/7

2. Park Inn by Radisson Nice Airport Hotel: Nice, France

You can enjoy hanging out poolside right near the French Riviera and the Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport by staying at the Park Inn by Radisson Nice Airport Hotel. Talk about the best of both worlds.

4/7

3. Airport Honolulu Hotel: Honolulu, HI

The Airport Honolulu Hotel is only half a mile from Honolulu International Airport, and no one’s going to mind getting stuck in paradise. Especially when there’s a sunny pool involved.

5/7

4. Grand Hyatt DFW: Dallas, TX

The Grand Hyatt DFW‘s easy access to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport isn’t its only plus: The hotel also has a chlorine-free rooftop pool that has therapeutic “salinity almost identical to the human tear.” Flight-related stress, be gone!

6/7

5. Novotel Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel: Bang Phli, Thailand

The pool at the Novotel Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel is literally surrounded by a tropical garden. (Just a head’s up, though: You might actually never want to leave.)

 

7/7

6. Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport: Orlando, FL

You can watch planes jet off as you lounge in the Roman-style pool at the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport. And if floating around in heated water among palm trees isn’t sufficiently relaxing, you can always venture under the waterfalls (because yes, there are waterfalls).

These hotel gyms have truly epic views. Or, you can get a Peloton-style workout right in your room.
