If you think a pool is merely a place to practice your backstroke, you're kind of missing the point. Take a group of scantily clad bodies, a hot and steamy day, and a watering hole for some frolicking, and swimming should be the last thing on your mind. Now move the scene to a rooftop—completely exposed yet totally private at the same time—and it becomes an altogether more sexy and decadent proposition. Whether it's a playful pool that's perfect for a weekend of full-on partying (we're looking at you, Axel Hotel) or a luxurious setting for sophisticated lounging, as at the London West Hollywood, these are the ideal rooftop hot spots to watch the sunset, have a drink and, oh, what the hell, slip off your clothes for a midnight dip.
