As a traveller, the first thing I check while booking a hotel is whether the hotel has a swimming pool or not. I have had a great fascination towards swimming pools since the beginning . Its presence makes my stay a whole lot better. Be it in India or outside, the first thing I do after check-in is to go for a quick dip in the pool. It helps to relax and gives a refreshing start for my day. Given a choice between two hotels, I’d invariably choose only a hotel with a pool. This post is about some of the pics I have taken in the top hotel swimming pools I have visited and in no specific order of ranking. These hotels are from different parts including Kerala, Delhi, Goa, Bangalore in India and Pattaya, Bangkok in Thailand.
Top Hotel Swimming Pools
Ramada Resorts, Cochin, Kerala , India
One of the best and largest resort/hotel swimming pools I’ve been to . Facing the lake, this lake has varying depths in different sides of the pool and spotlessly clean and more importantly temperature controlled. Despite chilly climates in Cochin, the temperature is kept at a warm level and made perfect for a swim.
Sukhmantra Resort & Spa, Goa, India
A pear shaped swimming pool along wiht a kid’s pool, this is right beside a bar as well. So makes it easier to have a drink and get a nice swim in the pool as well. If you are going for a Goa vacation for leisure, you should totally check this one out.
Andaz by Hyatt, Delhi, India
A standard sized pool with temperature controlled water, the swimming pool in Andaz by Hyatt Delhi was pretty nice to swim. It was spotlessly clean and thanks to the Delhi temperature the water was warm on its own ( not exactly sure if its was controlled or if they just let it like that)
Clarks Exotica Resort, Bangalore, India
Clarks Exotica in Bangalore has a nice pool, yet people out here hardly use it. They even had water slides earlier but none of them is functioning as of now and you just have the pool to yourself. In aw ay
Four Seasons Hotel, Pattaya, Thailand
A beautiful circular swimming pool in Four Seasons hotel in Pattaya, Thailand. The temperature is kept under control and also is extremely beautiful at night when you have a drink near the pool. The pool beds are comfortable and kept in plenty here.
Novotel, Hyderabad, India
The pool in Novotel, Hyderabad is beautiful and clean. But the changing room , shower is pretty far. You have to walk all the way dripping wet to the shower/room in the gym in basement which is a letdown. You also have inquisitive faces from all the rooms facing the pool which can be a downside on privacy.
Citadines, Soi 11, Bangkok, Thailand
Citadines in Bangkok, Thailand has a rooftop swimming pool. A large rectangular pool , helps you to get those laps in peace. It’s pretty windy out here , given several high rise buildings surrounding the space. The pool was well maintained but was not a temperature controlled one.
Which one’s your favourite? Have you been to a better swimming pool elsewhere? Do post in your comments and thoughts here :). This post on top hotel swimming pools will be updated accordingly as per my future travels.
