No tea, no shade, no pink lemonade if you’re one of those people who simply loves the luxury of a good poolside cabana or daybed. In fact, you probably will get all the tea, shade, and pink lemonade you want, as well as food service, fluffy towels, and live music and DJs – all from your private little “you space.”

Most of the cabanas and daybeds in metro Phoenix are located at area hotel pools, and many are available to non-guests. Here are 10 places where you can reserve a private cabana as a non-guest in the Valley.
