If you do a lot of traveling, you already know that Airline Lounges are the greatest. They are exclusive, they are quiet and they help make those long, crowded flights just a bit easier to take. And now, some lounges are also offering customers the chance to take a quick swim during their layover.
The Dominican Republic is a favorite layover for flights originating in the U.S. It’s central location makes it a natural place to pause for international flights and that’s the primary reason it boasts more international airports per capita than anywhere else in the world. And as you might imagine, all of that competition means each airport lounge on the island is working hard to be the one with the newest amenities.
The Punta Cana International Airport has upped the ante by recently adding a new rooftop infinity pool to its luxury executive lounge. Swimmers can look at across the airport tarmac to the surrounding luxury golf courses while enjoying drinks and even full meals made poolside by a newly-hired executive chef. Everything is free to members of the club or visitors headed to one of the nearby luxury resorts. The pool has already proved to be so popular that rival airport lounges are also prepping their own swimming pools and poolside experiences. Some experts believe that within five years, swimming pools will become a fixture at airport lounges around the world.
