5. Choeng Mon Beach
Tired of freshwater and want some salt? Easy. You can catch a ride from The Pool on the Hill to Choeng Mon Beach in under three minutes (or walk there – downhill – in about ten). For even more beach options, discover our favourite “secret beach” or enjoy some shell-hunting on nearby Plai Laem Beach. Reach both in a five-minute drive.
Things to do on Choeng Mon Beach
Get a beach massage (or fifty)
Enjoy a morning beach walk or yoga
Learn how to stand-up paddleboard
Favourite Choeng Mon food & drink
Cool off with a fresh coconut or a pineapple shake – find both at any number of street vendors, or in any of Choeng Mon's lovely beach restaurants.
You can easily book private yoga classes to enjoy at The Pool on the Hill. Whether one-on-one instruction just for yourself or an at-home activity for your whole group, we can’t recommend Era from Shahda Yoga highly enough. (Mats are provided if you’d simply like to do your thing at sunrise by the pool. If you end up drinking coffee and talking all morning … you wouldn’t be the first).
7. Board games
Prefer old-school entertainment? You'll find a selection of board games in the kitchen. All the classics are there as are Mexican Train Dominoes and jigsaw puzzles for both children and (patient) adults. As for your competitive arena, we recommend the poolside outdoor living room (and a pre-stocked fridge – see how our concierge services can help).
8. Lazy days
At The Pool on the Hill, we want every day to be your favourite kind of Saturday. Choose to hang out together in full sun, total shade (or strong air-conditioning) – always with an ocean view.
Lazy mornings with pancakes and family? Of course!
Reading twenty magazines in your pyjamas? Has to happen.
Pinterest … poolside? We won’t tell.
Enjoy sunset drinks by the pool
Curl up together & watch a movie
Chat for hours in the huge family living space
Watch frogs and dragonflies around the pond
Play board games in the outdoor living room
Marco! Polo! Swim for hours (it's chlorine-free!)
Poolside dance parties (no such thing as bad pop at sunset)
As for laughter and great conversation in the company of your family? Well, that’s on you. To all but guarantee your success, we provide plenty of comfy spaces to hang out together in the sun and shade – all with ocean views.
Laziest vacation ever? Request that our concierge pre-stocks the fridge and cupboards with your favourite snacks, add your vacation playlist and your chances of Best Vacation Ever look pretty good.
9. Work up a sweat
Enjoy laps in the chlorine-free infinity pool, take a yoga class, play tennis ... or let our concierge arrange in-house yoga and Muay Thai lessons. A few more easy ways to enjoy a healthy stay at The Pool on the Hill:

Laps in the chlorine-free infinity pool
Masochistic? Run stairs!
Or, take stand-up paddling classes on nearby Choeng Mon Beach
10. Play tennis
Guests have access to our gated community's tennis courts. To beat the heat, might we suggest an early match and a jump in the pool afterwards?

12. Spectacular sunsets
Sunsets – we can’t guarantee them – but odds are good you’ll enjoy some rather special sunsets from The Pool on the Hill. For best effect, try a sunset with your feet in the pool...
