One of the most common inquires for hotels is whether it has a pool and most importantly, what type. Most hotels or motels come equipped with a pool. The most popular type is an indoor pool. Some of best hotels chains are designing hotels with a flagship pool. Aside from the leisure and therapeutic benefits of a pool, some hotels are creating pools that would be considered a luxury. For example, the Gold Nugget Las Vegas created a thirty million dollar award-winning pool that has a two hundred thousand gallon shark tank aquarium along with a 3-story complex and seventeen private cabanas! If that doesn’t excite you, the pool also comes equipped with a mind blowing water slide. Most hotels that provide pools come in about 3 or 4 different types; indoor and outdoor pools, infinity pools, and zero-entry pools. The most desired hotel pool, the indoor, comes with many benefits such as climate control, themed with the hotels architecture, and provides overall better experience. Next, infinity pools are known for the vanishing edge effect that creates the illusion of water extending over the edge to infinity. This type of pool can produce a breath taking visual if the infinity pool is blended with oceans, lakes, or similar lager bodies of water. There are some hotels that build an infinity pool at the top of the hotel to give the waters edge the illusion of extending over a city or a surrounding terrain. Finally, zero-entry pools are becoming very popular with outdoor settings for hotels. The zero-entry has an entry to the pool with a gradual slope from the edge to the water that becomes deeper with each step toward the middle. This type of pool mimics the contour of a beach. This type of pool also generally has no stairs or ladders opposed to typical outdoor and indoor pools. One of the major benefits of a hotel having a zero-entry pool is the access is favorable for children, older people, and people that may have a physical disability. With some zero-entry pools, it’s not uncommon for a hotel to add playful fountain that is integrated with this type of pool for added experience and leisure.
