10 KINGS OF THE HOTEL SWINGERS

Swings aren’t just for playgrounds and dodgy love hotels. Quite a few real hotels have been placing these whimsical devices in their lobbies, suites, and other public areas. And we’re loving it. Here are a few of our favorite swinging hotels from New Jersey to The Maldives…

Suspend the wait for check-in on this swing in the lobby.

You’ve traveled this far, you owe it to yourself to spend at least an hour on the beach in this Maldivian rope swing.


INTERCONTINENTAL PRESIDENTE MEXICO CITY

ICCDMX-Swing

Tucked away in the two-story presidential suite is a bright green swing that overlooks the city.


PARKER PALM SPRINGS

Anyone can plop into these swing chairs in the Parker’s ridiculously sexy lobby.

Technically, these are hammocks and not swings, but they are bright-colored and right on the beach so there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy.


THE LLOYD HOTEL

When in Amsterdam, swing from the bed into the bath.


HARD ROCK IBIZA

Take a break from the party scene and “admire” the rock and roll memorablia from one of the swing chairs in the lobby.


1 HOTEL SOUTH BEACH

A rattan swing chair is a perk of the presidential suite at the 1 Hotel. (But we wish they would bring back the swings that were set up in the backyard for Art Basel.)


EAST, HONG KONG

Lord over the frenetic city of Hong Kong from a futuristic bubble chair in one of EAST’s six killer-view suites.
