Going through the door of some of the hotels we can find in India is entering an oasis. All luxury of amenities in dream enclosures, with magical corners. And among its best kept secrets, wonderful swimming pools that cut the breath of the traveler.

India is so intense that, after a day of emotions, a break is good. Surrounded by vegetation, culture or art, the pools of some hotels invite you to stop along the way , especially in the hottest months, where you want to relax taking a bath. Perfect places to comment, plan the day of the next day or numb the muscles after the tiredness of the road.

The swimming pool of the Rass Jodhpur boutique hotel is one of those places that catch you as soon as you see them. Framed in the beautiful walled city of Jodhpur, in the state of Rajasthan, northwest India, it seems just out of an oriental tale .

This pool is perfect for people who want to soak up all the exoticism of the Indian contention. One can feel a real marajá when lying in one of the hammocks that surround the water and make it possible to contemplate the more than 300 years of history of one of the most important cities of Rajasthan.

Numerous hotel staff will be attentive to your needs while we remain on the premises. And once night falls, the pool seems to be part of a painting , with the wall illuminated in the background.

The Oberoi Udaivilas , in Udaipur, the “city of dawn”, has two outdoor pools with all the exuberance of Rajasthan within your reach. Surrounded by vegetation, one of the pools borders the rooms, which have private hammocks and direct access to water . We can swim for a while while admiring the beautiful Lake Pichola, with its ivory buildings in the background.

The other pool, at the back of the hotel, allows you to take a dip among beautiful sculptures of elephants , surrounded by an architecture of huge domes, in the purest Indian style.

If you prefer a heated enclosure, the Zodiac pool at the Umaid Bhawan Palace boutique hotel in Jodhpur is very relaxing. The palace, which was finished building in 1943, was the largest private residence in India. Today, on the other hand, it offers its guests the possibility of living like a true prince in its almost 150 rooms.

The pool is decorated in art deco style , with bright gold-coated tiles, where you can see the signs of the zodiac. At night, the hotel staff illuminates it with dozens of scented candles, and rose petals of different shades are poured over the water . An intoxicating atmosphere of spices and jasmine that offers a whole symphony of sensations. A haven of peace to relax before continuing the journey.
