In Paris, two swimming pools are part of the city’s history : the Deligny, a floating pool on the Seine river, and the Molitor, in the west of Paris with two pools, one transforming into a skating ring in winter.

If the Deligny was never rebuilt after it drowned into the river, Molitor closed in 1989, has juste reopened to the public as a luxury hotel and spa. The hotel proposes to enjoy a pool art life, which seems to be absolutely true when you discovered how well the 1930s pool spirit was magnified while adding contemporary art and luxury service. When the soul of Paris history meets today’s luxury.
