Sebastian might have had it right, everything is better under the sea! If you’ve dreamt of switching places with Ariel and donning a pair of fins to explore the ocean with, you’re definitely not alone. And while it might not be Atlantis, this hotel's pool in Florida feels like a hidden mermaid grotto and will totally give you all those undersea vibes.
This secluded, rocky grotto feels like a world away, with tumbling waterfalls and crystal blue water. Float on your back and look up as the clouds peek over the craggy cliffs, or escape below into the cozy subterranean cove.
You’d never guess this spot is right in Orlando!
Found at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress hotel, this secret mermaid cove is actually part of the hotel’s massively awesome pool.
While it may not be a super-secret exotic location, you can find the grotto by crossing the rope bridge and ducking beneath waterfalls. The pool totals 800,000 gallons, complete with a fun waterslide.
The pool is open from 7 a.m. to midnight, giving you plenty of time for mystical nighttime swims through the caves. However, it’s not open to the public, which just means you’ll have to plan a weekend getaway at Grand Cypress to take full advantage of all they have to offer.
If you're staying at the hotel, just remember that there’s no lifeguard on duty at this magical pool. Guests under 18 will also have to wear wristbands to access it.
