With the warmer months fast approaching, Melburnians will soon turn their attention to the best places to keep cool over summer. But for some lucky South-siders, they won’t need to move further than Chapel Street Precinct, with a swathe of ingenious pool concepts putting the tired old 25-metre lap pool to shame.

Here are our top 3!

The best pool decks on chapel

Nestled just past Toorak Road, The Olsen’s clear glass-bottomed pool is the perfect place to people-watch over Chapel Street throughout the summer months. Partially undercover, the elevator opens to an urban oasis, revealing an expansive sun room beside the pool, complete with a staircase leading up to the rooftop terrace. The clever design means the pool water – and those swimming within it – is even visible from passers-by below! So best to keep any nudie dips for strictly after dark.

As a part of the Sofitel group, you’d expect all of the goodies that come with an internationally renowned hotel empire – what you wouldn’t expect is the ROOFTOP pool and sundeck. You could safely lounge away all day here until it’s time to go shopping of course.
