Ara Rooftop Pool & Lounge

Ara Rooftop Pool & Lounge is both a luxurious pool experience and a stylish rooftop lounge with panoramic views from the top. Located atop Hotel Effie on the bayside of the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort in Miramar Beach, Florida, Ara is open daily for lunch, dinner, drinks and fun. 

Named for the southern constellation, Ara where you’ll find the finest wines, hand-crafted artisanal cocktails, and a delicious menu. While the pool is open to hotel guests only, anyone can rent a private cabana to gain day-use of the pool. Enjoy a game of life-size chess while you take in the scenery.

When the sun goes down, the vibe of Ara becomes a little less pool and a lot more lounge. When the weather’s right, poolside DJs sample chill music by day and up-tempo beats by night. A place to see and been seen, Ara is a hotspot for fun-filled events and community benefits throughout the year. 

Ara Rooftop Pool & Lounge is located on the top floor of Hotel Effie in the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort. To view the food & drink menu and learn more, visit Ara's website. Keep up with the Ara music lineup, specials and event schedule by following Hotel Effie on social media.
