Gordon Pool has been an iconic feature of the beachside landscape since it opened back in 1956. Its country club atmosphere within the city proved a popular choice for socialites during the day. And carried much nostalgic fervor until it shut for renovations. rnRe-opened in 2009, the venue now consists of an Olympic size pool, two smaller pools for kids, a gym and sauna facilities and an expansive pool deck area for sunbathing and events. A daily supply of salt water is drawn from springs 150 meters below the venue, which allows for the management to avoid using chlorine. rnA steady diverse set of clientele now fill the pool and gym facilities. Swimmers take to the lanes as early as 5:30 in the morning, rain or shine, whilst retirees dominate the deck area playing backgammon and drinking mugs of Turkish coffee. And travellers and guests from the surrounding hotels take their observation seats nearby. rnMembership is offered at a daily, monthly and yearly rate, for either pool only or for all facilities.
