Welcome to the Travelman Podcast, today, I thought because I’ve just recently booked eight nights at Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort, for an upcoming family holiday in May, I thought what a great idea to do a podcast episode on the eight best resort and hotel pools that I’ve ever swum at. I reckon that Courtyard by Marriott will sneak in to my top eight one day.
I’ve broken these pools into three categories:
1st category: Pool Characteristics, how large or small the pool is, what’s the shape, how it does it look?
2nd category: Best Assets, meaning what’s the best thing about the pool. What makes it unique and so forth.
3rd category: Downfall, either the pool is perfect or it can work on a few things that may have made it a better experience for me.
So, beginning with number eight and making our way to number one. This is the eighth best resort/hotel pool that I’ve ever swum at.
There are pools that I haven’t listed here, either because I forgot about them or they weren’t that special! And there’s two I’ve got video of on my YouTube channel, Travelman Podcast.
