The Swimming Pond

After an extended hike or a longer stroll, there are few things better than a dunk in our swimming pond. It was cleared by hand and measures 15 meters long, 7.5 meters wide and up to 2.5 meters deep. A hygienic plastic foil serves as the bottom liner.

Our water preparation process is conducted entirely without chemicals. We instead purify the water naturally using UV-C light and a sponge filter. The immersion pump does have to run around the clock, but is inaudible. This technique allows us to use the valuable moisture for watering plants.

Algae on the side walls and the occasional frog who finds our pond a lovely place to abide only add to the atmosphere. The water is nearly crystal clear and invites guests to come relax. An underwater bench provides a handy place to sit and read while having a soak, although there's plenty of enjoyment to be had from simply looking out at the mountains and ocean. The pond is also big enough to allow for a few laps. There's a staircase to make it easier to get in and out of the water, although the algae can make it a bit slippery. Please remember to be cautious. We've got something for those who enjoy an outdoor shower as well: we've installed an outdoor shower directly next to the pond.
