Epic IHG Pools in Africa and Middle East to Escape Summer Heat


Dive in! Yes, it's time to literally dive in. With summer just a week away and temperatures rising – there’s no better place to be than poolside.


From urban oases to 1920s-era indoor lap pools, here are 3 of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ coolest pools in Africa and the Middle East that will have you pulling out your swimsuits and packing your bags.


1. Six Senses Zil Pasyon



Where: Victoria Mahé, Seychelles

Details: In this haven of perpetual summer, where coral-fringed beaches and massive granite rocks create an air of drama and beauty – Six Senses Zil Pasyon has 28 one-bedroom pool villas that offer panoramic ocean views, as well as two, two-bedroom pool villas, which offer more seclusion among lush tropical vegetation.


But it’s the elevated pool and sundeck at Six Senses Spa that has caught our eye. Here you will reach ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation through yoga sessions and a meditation at a dedicated pavilion.


2. InterContinental Dubai Festival City



Where: Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Details: You might need some courage to take a dip in the famed pool at InterContinental Dubai Festival City. But once the initial excitement has settled, the 25m pool balcony is the perfect place to relax after a day of sandboarding in the vast Dubai deserts.


You can watch passers-by walking beneath them while basking in the glistening pool and enjoy a different perspective of the Burj Khalifa and impressive Dubai skyline.



3. Crowne Plaza Jordan – Dead Sea Resort & Spa



Where: Swemieh, Jordan

Details: Set on the longest, private Dead Sea beach – Crowne Plaza Jordan – Dead Sea Resort & Spa has a 5,500 sqm pool surrounded by tall palms with a pool bar and an adults-only infinity pool that you can swim to the edge of for sweeping views of the Dead Sea.


Oh, there’s also a dedicated pool just for the kids to splash around in. The outdoor fun doesn’t stop when the sun sets either! At night, El Grito opens poolside for classic Latin American food and live entertainment.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
