These Mouthwatering 'Pop-Up' Amenities will Give You Menu Envy

Summertime is synonymous with poolside lounging, and what better place to find yourself strewn across a weatherproof chaise than at one of the Dorchester Collection's SoCal properties?

Both the Hotel Bel-Air and The Beverly Hills Hotel are offering exclusive 'pop-up' amenities this summer to entice discerning travelers. At the former (which was redesigned not too long ago by Lonny favorite Alexandra Champalimaud), you'll find chocolate-dipped banana coins, frozen grape skewers, and chocolate and vanilla Dip 'n Dots offered complimentary throughout the day. Therapists from the hotel's own La Prairie Spa are on hand to offer their services as well, should you sprain your wrist reaching for a handful of banana coins. (Prices start at $45 for fifteen minutes.)

If your preferred home-away-from-home is The Beverly Hills Hotel—their iconic oval-shaped pool, originally a horse-riding ring, is an understandable draw—you'll have a slightly different array of little luxuries on hand, including Otter pops, frozen peanut butter cups, and (!) mini lava flows. 

If you're not in California currently, nor heading there shortly, at least take some menu inspiration from the treats listed here for your next pool party. Mini lava flows for all!

The services and amenities listed here are available year-round at The Beverly Hills Hotel and through October 31, 2013 at the Hotel Bel-Air.
