What is a poolside cabana?

Cabana comes from the Spanish word cabaƱa, with its Late Latin root capana, which is a hut, cabin, or tent structure. Unlike a gazebo which is open on all sides of the structure, cabanas have covered sides. Poolside Cabanas are small, sometimes movable structures usually found near water and used for shade and privacy while poolside or beachside. The side panels of a cabana are like a curtain and extended and retracted to adjust the amount of privacy and shade needed. The roof of a cabana typically has all-weather fabric that will stand up to UV rays, wind, and weather.

Traditionally, a cabana is a tent-like structure that can be moved around from one spot to another on the beach. It can act as a mobile dressing room, where swimmers can dry off and put their clothes on. People also use the word cabana to describe any poolside building or changing room.
