As summer approaches our soul heats up. While planning a vacation full of sea, sun, and sand is great for some, it is torture for those who have to spend their whole summer working in the city. If you don’t have the time to head to the beach this summer, enjoy Istanbul’s best pools.
İstanbul’s Best Pools
Çırağan’s pool is one of the city’s pools that has the most beautiful vistas, giving you the feeling that you are swimming in the Boshporus. With the waters of the Bosphorus and Anatolian side of the city before you and the historical Çırağan Palace to your left, this is a truly dazzling environment. There is also a children’s pool for younger guests.
Despite its location in the city center the Grand Hyatt pool, surrounded by greenery, will make you feel like you’re at a summer resort. The wall next to the pool is also covered with greenery so you feel like you’re in an oasis among Taksim’s gray skies. The best way to gain back those calories you burn in the pool is by enjoying the poolside restaurant Gazebo’s pizzas that are prepared in a special Italian oven.
Hilton İstanbul Bosphorus is one of the first places in the city where people enjoyed hanging out poolside. The first love of Istanbul’s elite, this pool is still preferred not just because of nostalgia. It retains its popularity due to its size and the fact that use of the sauna, steam bath, Turkish bath, and gym are all included in the entry fee.
