Ara Rooftop Pool & Lounge Logo

Ara, named for the constellation, is more than a leisurely day in the sun, where poolside DJs sample chill music by day and up-tempo beats by night. Cabanas offer private luxury and the menu tempts you with high-end wines, hand-crafted cocktails, and thoughtfully curated food. Come and check out the extraordinary panoramic views and stylish vibe.
