Pool trends 2017: Fun for every taste

For people seeking a holiday in the sun, one feature is a must: the pool – key meeting point and for many the most important element of their holiday. However, there are many different ways to spend your time at the pool. That is why we have compiled tips for every target group to enable you to make the most of your pool time.

For families

One of the best things about going on holiday with the whole family is the amount of quality time you get to spend together, while still having time for yourself. A pool offers you the perfect opportunity to make a splash and have fun but also learn something new. You can take the plunge and join in: Kids learn the right swimming techniques with lots of splash and play. Thanks to highly qualified swimming school partners, they may attain their swimming certificates, ranging from Beginner to Expert. Who knows: They may even train with an Olympic gold medal winner. Of course, the entire family will celebrate the succes.

If some family members are looking for a little more action, one big trend is scuba diving. Discover Scuba courses in the pool are a perfect way to learn handling the oxygen cylinders and diving goggles.

Courses are available, among others, at TUI Family Life and TUI Best Family hotels and many Robinson Clubs and TUI Magic Life resorts.

For couples

Holidays with your partner mean gearing down and above all spending time together. Perfect relaxation may be increased further by wellness offerings in the pool. Whether you prefer enjoying the view of the sea or using the indoor pool – each couple has its own preferences.

Apart from classic sun loungers, daybeds are becoming increasingly popular. These are oases of cosiness directly on the beach or at the pool. Served by a special waiter, there is nothing to prevent you from sipping a freshly made cocktail in the shadow. And if you want some privacy, simply close the canvas curtains.

Perfect places for couples are the adults-only TUI Blue and TUI Sensimar hotels with wellness programmes.

Travelling solo

Holidays for singles mean doing whatever you feel like doing, all the way from relaxation to getting to know new people and simply having fun. A pool party offers a perfect opportunity to combine everything. Of course, the icing on the cake is the 2017 summer trend: a giant inflatable pool fruit slice float – following flamingos and unicorns, the likes of pineapple and banana are now in vogue. The floats are a perfect place to sip a cocktail, and an ideal photo motif. Fruit lovers can be sure they will get Likes on Instagram and Facebook, and the floats will ensure unforgettable summer holidays.
