IN THE SWIM Three stunning pools lead the way to the beach at this exclusive resort, a combination of an Art Deco–inspired glass tower and a converted landmark hotel.

POOL SCHOOL Each of the pools, created by hotel designer Jean-Michel Gathy, is set at a different temperature, from a bracing 75 degrees (conducive to lap swimming) to 95 (perfect for lolling).

BEST TIME TO DIVE IN December through March, with temperatures in the high 70s.
