Beat the Heat

Lot of resorts have mushroomed in and around Bangalore. This mainly serve corporate customers. Some of the companies take the employees to these places for a days outing once in a while. Apart from food they provide lot of facilities like games, swimming pool and host of other amenities.

These resorts have also started to cater to the family crowd.

With the temperature going as high as 36 degree centigrade in Bangalore, these places are ideal getaways for a fee.
My family along with my friends family ventured to explore one such resort on a weekday.

Luckily on the day we were the only people in the resort. We had good fun with the kids spending more than 5 hours in the pool. The place had water slides, pools of various sizes, play area.

That looks like great fun, all that wet! When we were in Israel two years ago, we went to a similar place in the Galil. What a wonderful relief from the summer heat.

Rajesh: It is great when you have such a wonderful day to spend in the sun.

ewok1993 said...

with temps constantly in higher levels, i would have expected places like this to be full to capacity.

the good thing is you had the place practically to yourselves.

noel said...

Zuzana said...

Loved this post! I so want to jump into those pools, the heat here will take its time to arrive, maybe in a few months if we are lucky...

Wolynski said...

Just like Vegas - most hotels here also make their pools accessible to locals for free. They hope you'll buy refreshments and gamble a little.

Lovely photos.

Robin said...

Wow, what a treat to have a place like that all to yourselves. I bet the kids (and their parents) had a blast!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Fun pictures -- I want to go down the slide with the kids (it would make them laugh uproariously -- I'm a little too old!) Quite a contrast with this post next to your incredible fact" on the sidebar, about the coldest place.
Makes us realize how great and varied India is.

radha said...

A resort just for you? How lucky to have no crowd. And you are also lucky that it is only 36 C out there in Bangalore. A little up north from where you live it is 44.5C

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,

Carolyn Ford said...

The children are sure having a wonderful time on the slides! I love the smiles on their faces.

RNSANE said...

It sounds like the ideal way to beat the heat. Kids are almost like fish - they can stay in the water all day! I used to take my boys to our local Embassy Suites on the weekend and invite a few of their friends for a sleep over - it was great because they had an indoor pool, huge breakfasts, and evening cocktails, sodas, popcoorn!

Becky said...

What great choices for Blue Monday and Mellow Yellow Monday. Very vivic.

SmilingSally said...

Ah, summer is coming. Happy Blue Monday.
