Winter is coming, but that doesn’t mean we need to put a stop to our favourite summer activity. Here are some heated and temperature-controlled pools that you can head to, though keep in mind that these may be a little heavy on the pocket.

The New Delhi branch of this luxury line of hotels has a fabulous, temperature-controlled swimming pool that even has underwater music {Triwizard tournament anyone?} and a cafe for the post-swim munchies. You could also opt for their membership plan.

It’s the perfect way to cool off after a frantic session chasing the sales at Ambience Mall; you can nip across to the plush Leela Kempinski for a dip in the 22.5 mtr pool here.

We hope you have friends who are members here, because they have a pretty sweet deal going, thanks to their solar-heated, covered swimming pool. We also recommend you try out the chicken sandwiches post your swim. If you’re babysitting, the place has a super cute kiddy-pool, too.
