As MCO 2.0 is now lifted and vaccination is currently undergoing, we are all hopeful and eagerly waiting for the day to be able to travel!
Be it a hotel, retreat or even a resort, a staycation is just what you need to unwind and recharge with some me-time tranquillity, particularly when it involves the luxury of a swimming pool.
While this all sounds exciting, majority of swimming pool-goers do not actually realise that chlorine tablets from the pool pose its challenges to the human body, especially on the hair, eyes and skin – which is why the option of Saltwater pools have become a distinguished feature in itself.
As chlorine is still the globally-approved sanitiser when it comes to swimming pools, chlorine is needed in order to certify as safe for human usage. Saltwater pools are somewhat similar to the usual swimming pools in which that saltwater pools do produce chlorine; however, this chlorine derives from the salt itself.
To ensure that it is a pure chlorinated saltwater pool, a salt chlorinator is utilised to convert salt into chlorine gas which will dissolve into the water and becomes the chlorine that we know. With this chlorine being 100% natural, saltwater pools are gentler to our skin, eyes and hair (yay!).
Because of its benefits, some hotels, resorts and even homeowners have opted for saltwater pools over chlorine tablet-based pools thanks to the skin-friendly factors and its natural ability to help one soothe their body while in the pool. Here are some Saltwater pool options for your consideration.
Four Seasons Hotel
With a saltwater pool like the Four Seasons, stress will immediately leave the body, escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and let the saltwater do its natural healing thing – relaxation is now on point!
The Gardens Hotel – A St Giles Signature Hotel
Apart from the fact that this hotel pool is a saltwater pool (the smell of chlorine begone if you’re sensitive to it!), you do not have to worry about kids disturbing the peace too much, as The Gardens Hotel has both an adult pool and a kids pool.
