Hotels in Nairobi with heated swimming pools

The weather in Nairobi is generally cool. The days are not too hot and the nights are not too cold. Some say that Nairobi has the perfect weather in the world. However, it gets cold in June and July- though nothing compared to any snowy winter. It rains heavily from March to May. The rest of the year is pretty warm. Some days in September and end of year get really hot, however. Swimming is a popular activity in the city of Nairobi especially on weekend afternoons. You can locate several public swimming pools at an affordable fee. However, if you are thinking of relaxing in a heated pool, there are specific locations that offer that.

If you are staying in a hotel in Nairobi, accessing their heated pool should come as part of the amenities to enjoy during your stay. If you have friends come into the hotel to spend some time with you, they will have to pay a fee to use the pool. Some hotels in Nairobi require that only visitors who eat at the hotel get to use the pool. If you are not sure about your visitors using the heated pool, you can always ask the hotel. Some of the hotels will allow you to swim in their heated pools at night.

The following hotels have heated pools:
