This is definitely one hotel pool that is enjoyable on one’s own or, preferably, with a special someone. However, be warned. Lest you have any naughty thoughts, cameras are there watching you AND your playful antics.
The Sofitel Munich Bayerpost is a beautifully designed hotel. Their pool is simply an extension of the overall aesthetic. A grey palette with lush shots of colour exists throughout the public spaces.
The chic hotel bar carries on seamlessly through to the outdoors, with individual fireplaces amidst the lounge seating. We had decadent, freshly-made strawberry cocktails during our stay – a different one for each night. Red, it seems, is the colour of amour at the hotel.
Nor do the luxe rooms disappoint. Automatic blinds in the bathroom can be deployed to cover the glass wall that separates the sleeping area from the bathing area, if one chooses. Oh – and there are Hermés toiletries. Sigh.
A random search for room prices in June brought up a rate of 255 Euros for a Superior room, but if you book in advance you can find rates as low as 200 Euros for a pre-paid rate in October. Time to pack that bathing suit!
