Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

The pool hours are 8 AM to 8 PM, seven days a week. It's nice and quiet, but I don't know what it is like in the high season. There are changing facilities and hot showers for non-guests, which may be welcome in the "cool" season - roughly November to March.
As with most pools in Thailand, there is no roof, so the water can get quite warm in the hot season. Most Thais don't like to get much sun so, if one has no problem swimming in the middle of the day s/he will have this pool and most others in Thailand all to him/herself. [May, 2013]
Great location and pool, especially if you want to avoid the busy city of Chiang Mai. I've been here twice and hardly anyone was in the water either time. It's easy to get to from the city; rent a bike or motorbike. Tip: Take the road along the river, using Google Maps, instead of taking the main road. It's much nicer and just as quick. As with most resorts and hotels in Asia, they don't ask for an entrance fee, just jump in and enjoy. The water is on the cool side: about 21ºC (70ºF). [January, 2014]
