Whether you’re on vacation or just looking for a place to stay in Phnom Penh, don’t forget to stay cool and healthy with Cambodia’s scorching heat and humidity! The weather can reach unbearably high temperatures, so it’s important to find accommodations with the right features. While functioning, quiet air conditioners are a must when looking at accommodations, there are also other amenities to consider. Many accommodations offer various facilities, but none compare to staying at a hotel with a swimming pool in Phnom Penh. If you’re unsure about spending the extra money to take a dip in the pool, don’t be. You’ll need it!

Low-Impact Workout for Cardiovascular Health

During your holidays and business trips, it can be really difficult finding the time and facilities to stay healthy. Some hotel gyms or even designated gyms lack fans or air conditioners, and there’s nothing worse than putting extra heat stress on your body. Staying at a hotel with a swimming pool in Phnom Penh allows you to continue your workout routine without interruptions. You can still get a full-body workout without the added stress of looking for a fully-equipped gym in Phnom Penh.

In general, swimming is also considered an excellent low-impact workout for cardiovascular health. If you’ve been doing lots of walking or standing on your knees and feet, you should consider a hotel with a swimming pool for alternative exercise. The water provides buoyancy to your movement, which reduces pressure and pain on your joints, unlike treadmills and standard running. Even when life gets busy, you can get your heart rate up and moving with a great low-impact workout when staying at a hotel with a swimming pool in Phnom Penh.

Staying Cool During Peak Heat Hours

Cambodia can get extremely hot, especially in the summertime months. As such, it’s important to stay out of the sun and avoid the blazing heat from around noon to 3 PM. But you don’t have to just sleep or stay stuck in your room during those hours! When you’re not exploring the nearby Royal Palace or shopping at Central Market, you can relax in Phnom Penh at a hotel with a swimming pool. There’s no better way to use those hours than cooling down by the pool (preferably in the shade for extra sun protection). During peak heat hours, you’ll enjoy staying at a hotel with a swimming pool in Phnom Penh to stay cool and have something to do. 

Fun for the Family

If you’re traveling with kids, staying at a hotel with a swimming pool is a great way to spend family time in Phnom Penh. Pool areas are usually located in a designated spot, allowing you to keep a close eye on your kids. You can also teach them how to swim without worrying about crashing waves. Or, you can let them play in the shallow parts or kiddie pool without stressing about their safety. When you’re looking for a chance to unwind from the bustling city life, parents can also have fun lounging by the poolside with food and drinks like cocktails. Parenting at its finest, right?
