Summer is just around the corner, so it’s time to pull out your bikini and hop into something that will cool you down on one of those hot summer days.

Luxurious hotels roof terraces with swimming pools and loungers are usually available not only for the hotel guests but also to the rest of us, so you can enjoy the freshest cocktails and the best Mediterranean food. We leave here some suggestions on where to go this summer.
It is not hard to find this place due to its central location– just next to the touristic avenue – La Rambla. Therefore, during evening in this busy street, it is worth visiting the rooftop of this 5-star hotel to enjoy the view from its terrace. In addition to the beautiful view, the roof also includes a swimming pool, comfortable sofas and most importantly, a bar. On the menu everyone can find something for themselves – cocktails, tapas, champagnes and many more.
Watch the sunset from the bar, located at the top of the Tibidabo Mountain, and it has exceptional views of the sunset, the sea and the city. The pool bar offers a relaxing atmosphere that almost feels like we are closer to the sky more than you have ever been. Sit down with a cocktail in hand, tapas from the extensive menu and give yourself time, because you should not rush in such a breathtaking place.
At Passeig de Gracia, next to one of Gaudí’s most beautiful buildings, Casa Batlló, is one of Barcelona’s most luxurious terraces. It offers 5-star service and a stunning view of Passeig de Gracia Street, which is filled with designer’s shops. You can relax on the comfortable sofas next to the pool. This is an expensive place, but believe us, you will regret if you do not come here.
This terrace has beautiful views of the old port, with the sea, the yachts and the cruises.
