Biosphere Pool Complex

The Biosphere Pool Complex... A Tropical Pool Paradise!

Hotel pools have become much more than a place to swim laps and burn off calories. A pool can serve as a resort’s architectural and amenity focal point, offering a place to exercise, unwind or work on a tan after a long day of business meetings or golf. Grand Cascades Lodge at Crystal Springs has accomplished both of these objectives with its 10,000 sq ft tropical indoor pool complex.

The Biosphere at Grand Cascades Lodge is the first structure of its kind in the U.S. to incorporate advanced German Foiltec roofing material, allowing nearly 100% light transmission for year-round tanning. In addition, a retractable roof which produces an extraordinary outdoor effect is a truly singular offering in the Northeast. The blending of these two technologies also creates an energy efficient space that allows users to enjoy all four seasons in the Biosphere.

The roof is only one of the many highlights of this magnificent structure. Grand Cascades Lodge’s exotic freeform pools are surrounded by lush tropical foliage that was specially transported to the resort to be housed in the Biosphere.

The Biosphere Pool Complex Features:

  • Heated indoor and outdoor freeform pool (outdoor pools are closed for the 2020 season)
  • Spectacular views of the surrounding mountains
  • Underground aquarium
  • 140 foot water slide (48” is the height requirement to ride the Biosphere Slide) 
  • Grotto-like Jacuzzi
  • Cave-themed steam room & sauna (closed at this time) 
  • The Biosphere Café featuring freshly made gelato, sandwiches, salads and imaginative tropical drinks every day

With an ideal location just 47 miles outside of Manhattan, Grand Cascades Lodge is the perfect place for anyone to escape for a quick weekday or weekend getaway in unprecedented style and luxury regardless of the temperature outside – courtesy of the Biosphere pool complex.

Please note 48” is the height requirement to ride the Biosphere Slide
