Swimming pools are among the main trends in the hotel sector and continue to be a must-have for some customers in urban hotels and resorts. The photo opportunities they offer and the leisure activities usually associated with hotel pools (relaxation, fun, sport) are two primary motivations for guests.
Incorporating other surrounding elements (from cocktail bars to water shows or water parks) helps shape a unique recreational space. Choosing the best aquatic facility is vital to the vacation experience.
