It’s hard to maintain your swimming exercise routine when you’re travelling. If lap swimming is your favourite fitness activity, you might be looking for a hotel with a swimming pool when you travel for business or leisure. However, not all hotel pools are the same. All avid swimmers already know how weird it feels to try to complete laps in a non-rectangular hotel pool with floating tourists and children.

It’s getting a lot easier when the pool features bottom stripes or floating lane lines that help swimmers get from one end of the pool to the other in a straight line. Swimming in a lane doesn’t feel weird anymore and floating toys are not expected to get in your way. It’s getting even better if there’s at least one floating lane line, as it clearly shows to everyone that this area of the pool is designated for lap swimmers.

Until today there was no easy way for lap swimmers to find hotels with lap pools. None of the hotel search engines and booking sites featured a special category to allow a search for hotels with pools with lap lanes. The only option was to use a general search engine to find some hotel sites or blog posts with a few recommendations and then search for availability and prices for each hotel. A time-consuming and inefficient process.

We’ve built Travelmyth to help travellers discover hotels that they’ll really like because they match their interests and preferences. We strive to answer specific hotel searches ignored by mainstream search engines. “Hotels with lap pools” is our new hotel category that you can search separately or combine it with other existing categories. Enter your travel dates to check the availability and compare the prices of the biggest booking sites to find the best deal.

We’re also trying to answer all questions that our visitors would like to ask the hotels themselves regarding their pool. We’re asking hoteliers several questions ranging from size and available activities to opening times and sanitation methods and we publish their answers in our search results. We’ve already collected tens of thousands of replies and we’re also using the answers to rate the hotels in the pool category and its subcategories, so that we can present to our visitors the hotels with the best pools first in the results.

If you’re a hotel manager and you haven’t already answered our questionnaires, you can claim your hotel and do it now; it’s free of charge and will help our demanding visitors discover and book your hotel. Here is a selection of hotels around the world who have answered our swimming pool questionnaires and have sent us photos of their lap pools:
