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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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.

Adult Admission Price & Policy
One year membership: THB 500, plus THB 100 for a membership card, plus THB 40 per visit.
While there, I talked to an Aussie who has been using the pool regularly for two years and he said it is wonderful. I also talked to a North American in the cafe, and he said the same thing about the gym and track that are part of this complex.
The water is in good condition, most of the time; some days it can be green but usually that doesn't last very long. When it's green, drinking a coke after swimming does the trick.
The facilities aren't the most luxurious you will ever see, but I don't consider that a problem. At least they're there. There are separate male and female changing rooms, both with two showers, toilets and sinks.
There are showers outside, as well, and floats by the pool are available to use.
After 9:00 AM or so, there is no more shade in the pool.
There is a small corner shop next to the pool, which sells drinks, some food, ice cream, and some swim gear (recreational), I've only seen it open on weekends.
It's a walkable distance from the BTS Sukhumvit Line's Eekkamai station.
An annual membership is 500 baht, a single visit for members is 40 baht. (But to be honest, they don't check that often...)
The water could certainly be cleaner, just try not to take a big mouthful. It hasn't put me off.
