Featured under "Dive into these stunning hotel swimming pool designs", Ms. Nilofar Haja has curated "the ultimate style guide for your home's swimming pools." The Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur, she says "is conceived as a traditional Indian palace spread across more than 50 acres of rambling landscape on the banks of Lake Pichola, in the city of Udaipur. The architects of the hotel had been working in the region for more than a decade and a half, in order to re-establish traditional building methods, materials and technologies in the contemporary context."
As for the swimming pool, Ms. Haja emphasises that "the deep blue tiled family swimming pool on level one of The Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur glows azure in the sunlight. Decorated with sandstone columns, the pool is a vibrant showcase of royal blue and cobalt blue tiles—some 40,000 square feet of it—designed by LTW Designworks. The swimming pool design is inspired by the concept of the ancient Indian stepwells or baoli. White Thasos marble and black anti-skid tiles have been used for the checkered stairs surrounding the boundaries of the main swimming pool."
