Whistler is a year-round destination and there is nothing better than ending your apres ski or your alpine hike with a swim! Thankfully there are lots of hotels in Whistler with pools! They are open year-round and heated!
Best Pool in Whistler
The Four Seasons is one of Whistler’s luxury 5 star properties and has one of the best pools in Whistler! It also has a hot tub and sauna and luxurious lounge chairs on the pool deck. The hotel amenities include a bike valet that is convenient and safe. In the winter, the Four Seasons offers a ski valet option where you can leave your skis at the ski hill instead of having to bring them back to the hotel. Four Seasons is located in the Upper Village near the Blackcomb Gondola. If you are visiting as a family, they are one of the best Whistler hotels for families. They offer playpens or cribs and high chairs for guests. They also offer childproofing items, art class, a seasonal playroom, and little luxuries like kids bath robes.
Cascade Lodge has one of the best pools in Whistler. The pool deck is huge with a generous shallow end and keep end. It also has two hot tubs and a generous amount of lounge chairs! Part of the Cascade Lodge is a timeshare and part is rentable by the night.
Cascade Lodge has plenty of other amenities making it a great choice. It has full kitchens or kitchenettes depending on the room you book. It has secure underground parking (paid) and is a quick walk to Whistler village. There is also bike storage in the garage and a ski valet in the winter (off the lobby). The grocery store is just a 2 minute walk away. The Olympic Plaza is less than 5-minute walk and the perfect place to grab a meal, a coffee and for skating and sledding in the winter! It is a bit of a long walk to the ski lifts in the winter.
The Pan Pacific Village Centre has another one of the best pools in Whistler. It features a heated, outdoor, saltwater pool and 2 hot tubs. The Pan Pacific Village Centre has suites with full kitchens and balconies! Besides the pool, one of the best features is the complimentary breakfast that is delivered every morning! It is perfect while getting ready to hit the slopes or suiting up for a day at the lake!
For larger families or a group getaway, the two-bedroom suite is perfect, as it sleeps 6 comfortably. The closest ski lift (the Excalibur Gondola) is just 300m away. In the summer months, the Pan Pacific Village Centre is a favorite due to its location. It is a short bike ride or scooter across the day lots to the Fitzsimmons Bike Park and the Skateboard park. These are two favorite summer things to do in Whistler with kids! It is also an easy walk down the village pedestrian walkway to Whistler Olympic Plaza which has plenty of places to grab a bite to eat, a huge grass field (which is a sled hill in the winter), skating (in the winter) and a playground!
The Pan Pacific Mountainside is the perfect location right at the Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola that takes riders up Blackcomb and the Fitzsimmons Express providing access to Whistler Mountain. It is located in the main village of Whistler and is a top pick in the wintertime! When it comes to swimming pools, it has a year-round outdoor heated pool and 2 outdoor hot tubs. The location of the Pan Pacific Mountainside is perfect for winter. Having the ski access right there means no packing up skis and driving to the lifts. But that does not mean it should be discounted in the summer months! It is right next to the bottom of the ski hill and perfect for watching the mountain bikers come down the hill!
The Hilton Resort has an outdoor swimming pool and is situated in the heart of Whistler Village. The Hilton has a variety of rooms, up to three bedroom suites that sleep all kinds of family sizes and groups in town! Note that self-parking is $37 per day (plus tax).

The Aava Whistler has an outdoor pool and hot tub with view of the mountains. It offers one of the best values in Whistler for those looking for a swimming pool but want to save a few bucks! It is just 2 minutes’ walk from the heart of Whistler Village and in a great location. Free WiFi is provided in all areas. There are a variety of rooms including a two bedroom suite.
