Whether you are a focused swimmer who keeps count of the number of laps you can do in a certain period of time or a shallow paddler who is a happy splasher, these swimming pools and lidos in Kolkata are the best places to beat the heat this summer season. Plus, they won't break your bank because membership is definitely not a requirement!

Aqua At The Park

Chill by the pool or in it—the setting can't get better than this. The Aqua pool is located inside The Park Hotel at Park Street and is just the place to hit up to splash some water with your squad or race it in laps. No membership deal to cut, you can per hour for a dunk in the pool. Even better, you get a complimentary beer to chill with.

DKS

This space next to Deshopriyo Park has a fairly good-sized and clean lido, which you can use even if you are not a member of the club. At a nominal hourly rate, you can do your focused line swimming laps here. The per-day rate for guests is just INR 150 plus taxes! Yes. You read that right. So, gather your squad and head to DKS for a dip in the pool.

Lake Land Country Club

Slightly off the city thoroughfare, this club on Kona Expressway is a great place to escape for a day out. Though it would need a club membership to avail of the facilities, the pool is open to all. You can relax in their sprawling and well-maintained pool and beat the heat of a summer day.

HHI

If you aren't fussy about the length of the pool, then this little one tucked inside Hotel Hindustan International, or HHI (as it is popularly called), would be a perfect spot to splash some water. Work out with your gang in the water and then head to their all-day dining cafe to quell the hunger. Works out well for a fun day out.

Ibiza Resort & Spa

Located on the outskirts of the city in Amtala, this one fits in for a weekend plan of long drives and chill with the squad. While a stay in the resort would need a prior booking, going for a swim in their pool sure doesn’t. Take a dip in the pool and then enjoy a drink and some finger food at the poolside bar. They've also got a multi-cuisine restaurant if you're looking for a proper meal to quell your hunger after the swim.

Price: INR 350

Eastern Metropolitan Club

Even though you can access this pool only if you have a membership, we had to mention it because it's the only swimming pool that is actually Olympic-sized. Eastern Metropolitan Club has also recently started a one-of-a-kind heated water pool service. You can also enjoy sports like skating, lawn tennis, table tennis, snooker, and badminton, so we'd suggest you become a member to enjoy everything along with swimming. 

Price: Members only
