Maldives Holidays Spark Growing Trend For Balcony Pools 29th March 2016
The Maldives is known for many things – dreamlike weather, crystal-clear shallow waters, and beautiful stilted bungalows in shallow lagoons. And now it is becoming popular for its new trend – luxury swimming pools right there on your balcony.
While many hotels around the world offer the chance to have a private pool all to yourself, few give you the opportunity to dip into the water for a swim as you look out on to the mesmerising sea views.
For a really special holiday, you could stay in a beautiful overwater bungalow that has its own pool. So if you do not fancy jumping into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, you can still enjoy a splash without having to share a public pool with other guests.
The Four Seasons in the Maldives is one such hotel that offers this, with guests paying $1,900 (£1,312) per night for an overwater bungalow with a pool for this simple luxury.
India has also jumped on the bandwagon for luxury private pools and you can enjoy a dip in solitude at the The Lodhi in New Delhi. By booking the a suite here, guests can not only enjoy up to 2,400 square feet all to themselves, but also their own personal plunge pool.
The suites with separate en-suite bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes are a favourite among those who want to soak up the exciting views of the busy city from their hotel room, several storeys up.
There are a few suites at The Lodhi with plunge pools, making this a truly unique hotel not only in India, but around the world.
