Guests at Aqua Star Babor Beauty Spa gain complimentary access to The Beverly Hilton’s legendary Aqua Star Pool, located just outside the spa. The largest heated outdoor pool in Beverly Hills, Aqua Star Pool is a hot spot among celebrities — in fact, Angelina Jolie jumped in this pool in her Randolph Duke gown after winning a Golden Globe. The spa even offers a couple of treatments poolside, including a 30-minute, relaxing foot massage in the comfort of your lounge chair and a 15-minute, energizing chair massage.
Two of The Beverly Hilton’s restaurants offer dining poolside. For lunch, enjoy salads, soups and sandwiches from the retro Circa 55, including a delicious grilled chicken foccacia sandwich with artichoke and garlic tapenade and a grilled cheese sandwich on toasted sourdough with tomato soup. After 5 p.m., Trader Vic’s Lounge is open for Polynesian-themed small plates and exotic cocktails — most notably the original Mai Tai, invented by Trader Vic himself in 1944. Come hungry and nosh on starters like chicken satay in peanut sauce, a roll-your-own Kahlua pork spring roll with roasted Maui pineapple relish or seared ahi tuna sliders on Hawaiian sweet bread rolls with sriracha aioli and edamame coleslaw.
