What does hot and dry weather call for (besides an ice cold drink)? A dip in the pool, of course! And the Centre of the Universe Swimming Pool is one place that springs to mind when you want to swim, sunbathe and relax.
Nestled in the foothills of Doi Suthep mountain range, and surrounded by orchards, the resort offers three salt water swimming pools. It also has a restaurant offering tempting snacks, simple meals and a range of beverages.
Wheelchair users enjoy easy access from the car park to the pool, a specially equipped bathroom, and wide steps with handrails lead into the pool.
From 7:00 am until 10:00 am, and 4:30 pm until 7:00 pm strict lane etiquette is in force in the main pool (25m x 16m) ensuring lap swimmers enjoy an uninterrupted workout. From 10:00 am until 4:30 pm a more relaxed ambience prevails when you can stretch out on a sunbed shaded with a parasol to read a book or take a snooze. Single entrance fees range from 100 Baht to 200 Baht, with discount cards offered for multiple entries. (Full details at ChiangMaiSwimmingPool.com)
If you have friends or family to visit, the resort offers three detached bungalows in a garden setting, promising a quiet and relaxing stay. Private pool parties can also be arranged to celebrate birthdays, weddings, and other special occasions.
Surrounded by lush foliage, yet only 6 kilometres from the centre of the old city, this place is the ultimate getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
