There are a multitude of pools in Amman, unfortunately they aren’t all accessible for a day-use. Furthermore it is very difficult to find information about the day-use of the pools in Amman and this is the reason why we came up with this idea of creating Byblok. We want to have a global database of all the swimming pool available for day-pass.
In this article, we will give you a selection of 5 different pools for 5 different activities or atmosphere. Whether you want to go swim to train for your next Iron-Man or to relax and sunbathe by the pool with a cocktail in hand, we have the pool for you!
1. Best Value for Money: Landmark Amman Hotel
If you are looking for a nice and affordable pool for a day on Amman you can give a shot to the Landmark Hotel. The lunch is included in the day-entry meal and you will get access to a very nice outdoor swimming pool.
After your day at pool, you can sit back, relax and enjoy a dining moment at the Skyline Sushi. This wonderful restaurant located on the rooftop serves some of the best Sushi in Amman.
2. Indoor Pool: InterContinental Amman
The weather in Jordan is most of the time wonderful, we all agree on that! However, it doesn’t mean you don’t want to still enjoy a day at the pool when weather is changing, especially in winter time. Plenty of hotels in Amman have an indoor pool for you to have a swim, whatever the season!
The indoor pool of the intercontinental is one of the most enjoyable in Amman. While fairly small, the interior design is of good taste and you’ll be able to relax in the Jacuzzi and Sauna after your swim. And when the sun shines again, you can always opt to go back to the outdoor pool.
3. Swimming pool for sports: Al-Hussein Youth City
If you are one of the Ammani athletes, we have one pool for you as well! It can be quite challenging to find a short or long course swimming pool in Amman.
Al-Hussein Sport City offers an outdoor Olympic pool that will delight those of you who are all about performances. Sports City is the go-to place for sports in Amman where you can find many other facilities to practice several different disciplines.
4. Women only: Al-Ahli Club
For women who do not want to mix with the masculine crowds, there are two solutions. You can opt for women-only pools, which are mostly found in spas or gyms and often require a membership. Or you can wait for the women-only days proposed by many mixed pools, like the one proposed by Al Ahli club.
Al-Ahli is a private/sports club offering 2 swimming pools located near the Arab Revolt Square. Mondays, Thursdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are exclusively reserved for women, so you can spend some laid-back time without the gents.
5. Pool & Tan: Sheraton Amman Al-Nabil Hotel
Last but not least, you can find one of the most beautiful pools in Amman at the Sheraton. Located in the 5th circle, its perfect spot lets you enjoy the sun for the entire without a minute of shade. A perfect place to swim and sunbathe while enjoying the magnificent view of Amman.
In case of cravings, feel free to order snacks and drinks at the Club on Five Pool & Bar Grill and enjoy it while tanning on your sunbed 🙂
