Imagine floating in a brightly-colored and shimmering gold glass-tiled indoor pool decorated with eight statues of Roman gods, goddesses, and heroes… A luxury swim experience at the Roman Pool is only available to members of The Foundation at Hearst Castle, and the guest-list is limited to 20.
This meticulously detailed, majestic pool is tiled from ceiling to floor, and features marble statues of Roman deities and athletes as well as lamps carved of marble and alabaster. Julia Morgan built the Roman Pool at Hearst Castle from 1927-1934. The mosaics were inspired by those found in the 5th-century mausoleum of Galla Placidia in Ravenna, Italy, and include marine creatures, mermaids, and other charming motifs designed by Camille Solon.
Begin your evening with a scenic ride up to The Enchanted Hill. Then, feel free to splash around in the most beautiful pool in the world while enjoying tunes from Hearst’s heyday, a variety of incredible savory and sweet treats, and the Central Coast’s finest wines and craft brews. As the evening comes to a close, guests will be escorted down the hill with memories of a lifetime.
Also, guests may opt for a 40 minute viewing of the digitally-remastered film, Hearst Castle – Building the Dream, in Hearst Castle’s five-story IMAX theatre before heading up to the pool.
Note: 20 guest maximum. First come, first-served.
