Yes by all means “Free Willy’ providing it is relatively young and in shape :!:
Restrictions need to be strictly enforced :

On the contrary I like my pool cool or even cold. Nothing beats diving into a pool of refreshing cold water after a day in the sun. Any recommendations? Preferably closer to Sunee and offering accommodation.

And how about good pools in Bangkok?
I sometimes stay at the Pinnacle in Bangkok, but their pool is a joke!
The pool at Malaysia hotel accepts outsiders (100 THB per day?), and at Goethe Institute you can get membership (800 THB per month?) to use the pool. There are youth centers all over Bangkok, many have a pool. You have to become a member (application with passport picture, passport, medical certificate, 60 THB fee per year), then you can use the pool for 15 THB per day.

ChristianPFC,

Thanks for the information.

I never would have thought that the Goethe Institut would have a swimming pool. ( And while I'm there, I'll look through the library and read some German newspapers and magazines.)

As for the pools at the "youth centers": I hope: (1) that they are NOT full of screaming children; (2) that the pools have some good eye candy, and (3) that the "medical certificate" is not too complicated. Would I be denied admission because of slightly high blood pressure?

I wonder if the Alliance Française in Bangkok also has a swimming pool? Probably not...

The Siwalai hotel in the same complex as My View stopped allowing the 'locals" with their noisy motorcycles to book rooms. VCC condo next to My View has stopped taking short term occupants so friends staying there have commented about how quiet it is and the pool is much nicer to use.

The O.P mentioned Unixx where i stayed for more than a year. I stopped swimming in any of the pools there after observing a mainland Chinese "lady' vomit in the larger pool and many other undesirable behaviours mostly from the AirBnb short term residents. I do miss the eye candy from Unixx which is missing from my new abode where no AirBnb is allowed.

PATTAYA PARK:

The "Eye Candy" at PP always makes it a worth the visit.

Sitting near the bottom of the huge water slide usually pays dividends. The last time I was there I enjoyed watching 2 really cute farang boys who appeared to be brothers going down the slide repeatedly, until the one that I had my eyes glued to lost his speedo's when he hit the water and swam around naked while his brother laughed. Normally, it's the Thais who provide this type of splendor, but I have to admit, these 2 farang boys had the most heads turning on this day. They appeared to be eastern European.

If Eye Candy is your preference, the Cartoon Network Water Park in NaJomtien is probably the best, although I don't normally recommend this because I think the admission price of 1,000 baht (or, 1.200 ?) is a bit over the top. That being said, there is more eye candy there than you can shake your stick at, as well as possibilities for hooking up with a boy (or man) if that's what you're interested in.

Cartoon Network 1000 baht. Pattaya Park 100 baht. Guess which one where I'll be . . .
