Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills’ sparkling heated rooftop pool is incredibly appealing on a sweltering day (or on a breezy, not-too-hot day too) and is the perfect place to get in some rest and relaxation under the sun; you’ll also be able to enjoy special amenities only available at the pool. Grab a lounge chair, which will be set up with a towel, and get comfortable. You’ll find more towels and bottled water stocked nearby on a table along with suntan lotion. During daytime hours, there’s fresh fruit on hand if you get hungry, and sometimes the chef will send up ice pops so you can stay cool.
If you want more privacy at the Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills’ pool, rent a cabana for a full day or a half day. They feature the only shade you’ll find out by the pool. They’re stocked with amenities — complimentary water, fruit and soda, plus a flat-screen TV, DVD player, CD player, radio, fax machine and phone to keep you occupied. If you’re looking for more relaxation by the pool, book a spa treatment in a cabana; there’s information outside by the pool if the mood strikes you at the last-minute.
Another great complimentary amenity offered at the pool of this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel: free yoga on the rooftop on the other side of the pool to help you mellow out on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Stop in at the Viceroy L’Ermitage’s concierge desk to sign up and then head up to the rooftop where you’ll find mats and all the other yoga accessories you’ll need. Afterward, the chef will bring up complimentary smoothies for all yogis — another special amenity that’s hard to turn down.
The most special amenity would have to be the view. From poolside, guests can see anything from the Hollywood sign and Hollywood Hills to the Century City skyline. The poolside also offers two private cabanas with inviting lounges. Poolside servers are also available daily to cater to guests.
