Nothing says summer like a deep tan from a day spent by the pool.
Yet in the concrete jungle of New York City, it is becoming increasingly hard to find the perfect poolside oasis.
On August 17th, Ravel Hotel in Astoria, New York enjoyed the Grand Opening of their official Profundo Pool Club in Long Island City. This new staycation provides residents and tourists that summer vacation without living the comfort of the big city.
Set in the posh backdrop of the New York skyline, the pool club is reminiscent of old style Grecian bathing houses with row and rows of bathing chairs and swanky Ravel decor; drinks and catering a mere few steps away.
The pool side club is exclusively open for adults to enjoy and bask in the summer glow, without the fear of little kiddies wading through the water.
The Profundo Pool Club also offers a variation of different experiences, from a Sunset Swim to Day Passes for friends and family.
Set beside the large pool is a large lawn littered with lawn beds for guests to lounge and relax with a nice cold beer in hand.
Since the opening of the Profundo Pool Club earlier this month, locals have raved about the accessibility and grandeur of such a hidden attraction. For most locals of Astoria, New York, they are trying their hardest to keep this little gem a secret for as long as possible.
The Profundo Pool Club is the oasis needed to escape the NYC heat this summer.
