WATER WORLD: Making a splash this summer is the newly reopened Molitor, the pool complex dating from 1929 that was shuttered 60 years later. The Art Deco decor has been maintained in the sprawling facility, which boasts an outdoor pool that is 150 feet long and an indoor pool measuring 108 feet in length that’s topped with glass. There are sports centers, a bar and a restaurant headed up by starred chef Yannick Alléno, who takes an experimental approach to cuisine by inviting guest chefs. The roof terrace is equipped for drinks, barbecues and dishes prepared à la plancha.

Hotel rooms here are operated by MGallery, part of Accor, and there’s an 18,888-square-foot spa run by Groupe Clarins. This is comprised of 13 treatment rooms, including two suites, where treatments run upward of 130 euros, or $177 at current exchange.
