The Pool

Grab a friend for poolside games, or take a dip in our outdoor pool. With full service, good vibes and The Poolshack serving up frozen cocktails and a regional raw bar - say 'hello' to your new fave Newport hangout.

We know everyone loves pool season, and so do we! As to not get overcrowded, below are just a few things to keep in mind for the pool:

  • Everyone (including guests) are required to make reservations for the pool. However, Wayfinder guests are always given priority for reservations to the pool.
  • Wayfinder guests can use the pool at any point during the day for 1.5 hours with reservations. Guests can extend their reservation to up to 3 hours by spending a minimum of $75 per person at The Poolshack.
  • Outside visitors (not staying at the hotel) may visit the pool any time after 12pm, but must make reservations and spend a minimum of $75 per person at The Poolshack.
