The right pool cabana can turn your ordinary backyard patio into a lush oasis worthy of a four-star resort. Picture yourself lounging on a daybed, shaded from the sun while frosty drinks help you savor the weekend. The happy truth is that a pool cabana needn’t be an unreachable luxury. We found four pool cabanas that are just waiting for their day in the sun.

M&W Patio Furniture Round Outdoor Daybed with Retractable Canopy and Soft Cushions, PE Wicker Rattan Sectional Sofa Set for Lawn Garden Backyard Pool

For smaller spaces

Thick, padded seats on an all-weather rattan setup provide the basic luxury of this cabana. The adjustable shade controls how many rays you want on any given sunny afternoon. M&W

Sturdy but light, this daybed can be moved around the patio with ease to give you the best view of your backyard paradise. It’s also compact enough to fit on smaller patios and even on balconies. The retractable canopy operates with a telescopic pull rod, making it more convenient to open and close. It’s built with a stable steel frame, all-weather rattan, and water-resistant polyester fabric. The load capacity of each seat is up to 250 pounds.

Endless summers

When we dream of spending an afternoon at a Las Vegas pool, tucked away in a private pool cabana, this is the model we dream about. Curtains drape across a four-poster frame – or choose the umbrella model if you want more sun. The curtains help keep out insects and providing shade and privacy, but they can also be removed and stored away easily if you prefer more sun. The high-quality rattan design is perfect for two people and is weather- and water-resistant, making it ideal for outdoor use throughout the year.

Intex Canopy Island Inflatable Lounge

Detachable fabric shade

Canopy Island has two additional air chambers for added stability and comfort along with built-in cup holders. We don’t have to tell you what those are for. Intex

How clever! Why should a pool cabana only sit on the deck? This inflatable cabana has a detachable fabric shade so you can control the amount of sun you get. It has a mesh background, so it allows cooling breezes to reach you. It’s lightweight enough to deflate it and take it to the beach to use. (Just attach a small anchor so you don’t float away!)

Chilling out by the pool isn’t an adult-only activity – let the kids and family enjoy the fun too. This hardtop tent offers a VIP experience thanks to its size and durable construction. It comes with a powder-coated, rust-resistant aluminum gazebo frame and a netting zipper at four sides to keep your family and children safe and cozy
