Empire hotel & country club

My usual tuesday morning routine after dropping munchkins off to school is to head out to the Empire Hotel and Country club where i teach a 9.30 class to club members and Hotel guests. So this time i was early and decided to whip my trusted camera out and snap to eat the time away.

The Hotel itself is a 15-20 minute drive from the airport. There are luxurious pools close to the hotel premises but a buggy drive down to the country club, offers more...

Pic above, Empire hotel & country club, below is the reception desk at the club.

After having a few chats with the friendly staff at the front desk, will lead you down the stairs and you will be greeted by their spa staff. You probably would be interested in what services they have to offer in their grand rooms. Pic below is the VIP room connected to your very own private showers and toilet. But at the Empire, i suppose, all guests are VIPs!

Then after a few thoughts on which spa treatment to take, you would be interested to see what the rest of the club is like and so you walk ahead and find 2 pool tables! and a huge badminton court you think you can even play quadruples! and multiply that by 2!

Then on the same floor, you are curious to the sounds of giggles and splashes and more splashes as the sound lead to you a massive (by my standards ok) and impressive! indoor swimming pool! but yesterday there were no giggles. Just a very happy, contented hotel guest reading lazily by the pool. I look at the pool and it made me want to jump.

The stairs then lead you to 2 rooms, the gym (overlooking a spectacular view of the sea) and the studio where aerobics and yoga,pilates classes are conducted. Pic above are the 2 rooms on the 1st floor. Pictured below, club members and hotel guests.

Then the very kept tennis court outside. This is where you would normally find me just before my class. Warming up in the glorious morning sun. Because its just so cold inside!

I actually missed out the Bowling room as this is tucked away behind the reception area but you can view that here along with more details on what tickles your fancy!
