Take The Plunge At These Hotel Swimming Pools And Keep Cool All Year Round

Aakanksha posted on 28 July

Whether it’s for a workout or just to cool off after a hard day’s work, or perhaps just a fun outing that involves plenty of splashing about, there’s plenty of pools swimming around the city, especially in hotels! And what’s more? All of them give you ample opportunity to make a day out of your swimming expedition with family or friends. So bring out the trunks, tankinis, bikinis and Speedos and take the plunge we say.

Just outside the gym and spa, this infinity pool is great to get a workout in or just lounge around. We love that they have a healthy snack bar that is part of the spa. So orange and carrot juice to refresh you while you look at the city skyline, maybe?

JW Marriott

Surrounded by buildings on all sides, this is a great idea if you’re trying to hide from the sun as well. Cabanas and palm trees dot the side lines of the shallow pool, so if you don’t want to be too far from the water, then this is a great retreat. Slip out for a spa session too, on the same floor perhaps. It’s also a heated pool, but that’s for December.

Price: INR 1,500

The Leela Palace

Set amidst the trees and sprawling gardens, you get tremendous privacy at this palace-style hotel’s swimming pool. It really is quite dreamy and if you even just float about on your back, all you can see are flowering trees and the blue skies. Perfect to pretend it’s not summer but spring! If you sign-up for the day, you can even use the gym, steam and sauna.

The Lalit

One of the first hotels to allow outside guests to use their swimming pool, this one is a bit small but does the job well. Order their iconic chicken sandwiches and cheese, and a cold coffee with ice cream from the coffee shop, and you’re good to go. Kids are also very welcome here so you can really make a day of it.

Price: INR 1,000 for adults and INR 500 for kids

Grand Mercure

Yes, we know you Koramangala folks have plenty in the F&B section, but swimming pools are a bit hard to come by. Grand Mercure sorts you out with a small but most refreshing pool. Plus, an adjoining kiddy pool so you can enjoy without being too far from your tot. Head here on Sundays for the poolside brunch which allows you to use the pool too.

Price: INR 600 + taxes

Clarks Exotica - Swiss Town, Devanahalli

A treat for water babies and those who like a bit of adventure, this resort is ace. How we love those three slides that take you straight back to when you were young. Nothing quite like swooshing down a slide into the crisp cold water, we say! Okay, maybe the pool bar is great competition. But that’s also on offer, so it’s a win-win.

Price: INR 1,200 upwards

Mövenpick Hotel and Spa

Their indoor pool overlooks the entire city and when you’re lounging around in the water, or even out of it, be sure to order some sandwiches to make it like a real holiday. While they do have yearly memberships for kids and adults solely for the gym and swimming pool, you can even make a day of it, especially in summer.

Price: INR 1,200 + taxes per day or INR 50,000 per year for adults and INR 2,000 upwards for kids per month.
