2016 Australian Hotel Awards: Best Hotel Pool Finalists

Hotel pools are one of the great consolations of an itinerant life. They're sanctuaries from the stresses of work, places to relax and recharge. We don't really mind if the pool is indoor or outdoor, saltwater or fresh, practical or showpiece. We love all of the above but when it comes to hotel pools - we must confess - the bigger the better in our book.

Stay tuned as we announce the finalists in all categories in the lead up to our 2016 Australian Hotel Guide Awards on 25 May. Our 2016 Australian Hotel Guide will be on sale on 26 May.
