Southern elegance and rooftop fun with amazing panoramic views.
Perched on top of the fabulous Hotel Effie Sandestin, Ara Rooftop Pool & Lounge serves the perfect mix of elevated food, drinks, dips, vibes and views.
Home to the Emeral Coast and Northwest Florida’s only rooftop pool, guests can enjoy luxurious poolside relaxation, surrounded with 360° panoramic views over The Village of Baytowne Wharf and Choctawhatchee Bay. Reserve one of the private cabanas to notch up on the lux vibes even more.
Swimming with a view is however far from the only thing Ara Rooftop offers, as it is also a stylish rooftop lounge. Indulge in hand-crafted artisanal cocktails and high-end wines, as well as tasty bites from famed chef Hugh Acheson, and challange your friends in a game of life-size chess, Connect 4 or cornhole.
Open daily from around noon to midnight, Ara Rooftop Pool & Lounge is a great destination for long and relaxing hours under the Florida sun, turning into a cool and hip lounge after sundown, with live DJs creating the soundtrack.
