The Penthouse operates from May – September. Actual opening and closing dates are weather dependent. Only Penthouse members and their guests may access the Penthouse Pool and Lounge.

The Penthouse Pool and Lounge has a strict age limit of 21+ and all guests must present a valid, government issued photo ID at the 1st Floor check-in station in order to be granted access.
Penthouse members must make their General Admission, Cabana, or Day Bed reservation in the VIDA App (limit of 1 reservation per member, per day). Reservations are available up to 7 days in advance. Members must arrive within 30 minutes of their reservation time on weekends & holidays or we reserve the right to offer your spot to someone on the Waiting List.
Lounge Chairs are available on a first come, first served basis with a General Admission reservation (beginning Friday, July 9th). You may also sit in the Bar & Firepit areas or place a towel on the pool deck.
The Penthouse Host will seat you and your guests when you arrive at the pool club. All members must remain in their designated seating area. Moving Lounge Chairs, umbrellas, or any other furniture is strictly prohibited. Please note that we use the QR Code in your seating area for Food & Beverage service. This means that we will deliver all orders to your designated seat.
The Penthouse will charge a cancellation fee if the member cancels their reservation less than 4 hours prior to the start time or does not show up for their reservation. The Late Cancellation/No Show Fees are as follows:
All Penthouse members must use the guest passes on their account to have any guests accompany them to the Penthouse. If the member has an insufficient number of passes on their account, additional passes may be purchased at the Front Desk with their card on file. Guest passes must be purchased by the member. Non-members cannot purchase their own guest passes. Penthouse members must always accompany their guests to the pool club and remain with their guests. Guests will not be permitted into the Penthouse without the member present.
Penthouse members reserving a cabana or Day Bed must agree to the food and beverage minimums below. Guest passes ARE NOT included with ANY reservation and the cost of additional passes are not applied to the food and beverage minimum. Guests joining the member must use a guest pass from the members’ account.

Weekend minimums will be charged for the following Holidays: Memorial Day – May 31st, Independence Day – July 4th, Labor Day – September 6th, Pride Week, and other Special Events.
For the safety of our members and to facilitate service, the front curtain panels of all cabanas must remain open at all times, no exceptions.

Violation of this policy is grounds for immediate membership termination. Any member or their guests that bring outside alcohol into the pool club will be immediately removed from the facility. A second offense will result in membership termination.
Appropriate swimwear is required at all times. Management reserves the right to make decisions as to the appropriateness of any swim attire (or lack thereof). If you have to ask yourself if what you’re wearing is appropriate, it probably is not. Any member wearing attire deemed to be inappropriate by our staff shall be asked to immediately leave the pool area until proper attire is worn. Repeated admonitions about inappropriate attire will result in termination of your membership. All Penthouse members and their guests must wear a shirt, shoes, and shorts/pants/skirt while inside any indoor area of VIDA Fitness.

This also includes sexually suggestive or explicit behavior, excessively loud and foul language, and any behavior which is disrespectful of anyone. Any suggestions or complaints regarding any aspect of the operation, individual employee performance, or action of fellow members should be directed to management. Any inappropriate, abusive, or disrespectful behavior to pool club members, guests, staff, or management will be grounds for removal, suspension and/or termination of membership privileges.
Pool furniture (i.e. lounge chairs, umbrellas, tables, etc.) must remain in its designated area. Members and guests are not allowed to move any of the furniture. Damage or destruction of equipment, furnishings or any property belonging to the Club, by members or guests, will be charged to and will be payable by the member responsible.
