What better way to both escape the heat and soak up the summer sun than floating down a lazy river? From Mexico to South Carolina, these hotels invite family travelers to book a stay to relax but and take on the calming currents of the lazy river.

Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa, Bastrop, Texas

Located a short drive from Austin, this hotel sits on 405 acres of Texan countryside. Its star, however, is the 1,000-foot lazy river at Lost Pines Water Park. Float through a landscape dotted with waterfalls and shaded by trees. This lazy river comprises part of a larger water park experience. Kids won’t want to miss the two-story waterslide, splash pad or whirlpool, either. Parents can relax in an adult pool while kids play around in a kiddie pool. After a day in the water, relax in one of the pool’s cabanas with food and drink service available.

Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Mexico

This luxury property recently renovated its lazy river, surrounded by native foliage and flowing with cool water. Families can take on the day with time in this new lazy river before indulging in a tasty meal from a menu featuring grown-up twists on nostalgic childhood classics. Parents can also sip a cocktail at all-new Drift Bar. For parents and adult children, don’t miss Rescue Hour at 4 p.m., where waiters in the river deliver molecular Jello shots from a life preserver to floating guests.
