Outdoor Swimming pools in Riyadh

Hi, if I am not going to live in a compound are there any clubs I can join in Riyadh which have outdoor pools to swim in, sunbathe by ? If not, could I use a hotel one as a non resident ?

Yes, most hotels allow non-resident guests to use their pool for a small fee.

Thanks musicman

Tri club, pm me your email and I'll send you the email of the person who organises it. They will put your name on the list of a compound where they swim and you can go there twice a week.

Hey Musicman, Can all of the EAGLES party and sunbathe by the hotel pools too...  :P  :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Hi Johnny, why have you chosen to live off compound? To get more exposure to the real Riyadh or?

It would be good if others could chip in with their experiences of living off compound.

Hey Stevie, to be honest with you I would much prefer to live in a compound but I am quite sceptical about my chances of finding a place in one because of the severe lack of availability, hence my resignation almost, to living outside.

It would be good if others could chip in with their experiences of living off compound.

Some times you get what you ask for! lol

Ok I'll just give you a few clues about what it's like to be off compound;

First, if you're a bachelor, it's very hard for you to get an appartment in a building occupied by families, especially in Riyadh, so you'll end up living in a bachelors building, that means the service is not good, the place is not good, usually not clean, and well if you managed to be in a relatioship with some girl good luck on inviting her to your place! lol

Second, you'll lose all kinds of organized social activities that can take place in a compound.

Third, no recreational facilities of any kind.

Now the above is the down side of living off compound, the upside is it's cheaper... thats all.

So to conclude I'll just tell you this: the only reason for anyone not to live in a compound is simply not being able to afford living in one.

Enough said! Peace...

Hmmm, doesn't paint a pretty picture does it ? But what you are implying - please correct me if I'm wrong here - is that affordability is the issue, rather than availability ? Do you think if I try hard enough I could get a studio/small flat or room in shared villa in a compound for my max budget of 5-6k SAR per month ?

Thinking about this, I'm going to open up a new thread to ask this very question to (hopefully) a broader audience...

Availability is an issue but way less of a problem if you can afford to pay.

Based on your nationality I'd say sure you can find one, you might have to wait for few months but eventually you'll get it, and the price depends on which compound you're talking about here, but the amount of money you're willing to spend is very decent :)

Good luck with your search!

i know what allie's going to say, but non the less, I'll try to get back to this one.
