With Valentine’s Day this weekend, love is in the air.  A pool can be the perfect place for a romantic evening, and when you own a pool, you have the convenience of having your date night right in your backyard!  We’ve compiled a list of 8 great date night ideas.

1.  Kick Back with Cocktails:

Get your date night started off right with the ambiance of pool lighting while sipping pre-dinner cocktails by the water.  Want to really win her heart?  Serve her a cocktail along with a rose.

2.  Pool-side Dinner for Two:

Whether grilling outdoors or sharing take-out from a favourite restaurant, a pool-side patio is the perfect place to enjoy delectable food over an enjoyable conversation.  Create a romantic atmosphere with rose petals, candles, and music.

3.  Pool Floats for Two:

If you want to add some fun, buy a pool float for two.  You can relax with your date while floating leisurely around the pool.

4.  Go for a Swim:

Swimming and pool games are a fun activity even adults can enjoy.  Challenge your date to a “biggest splash” contest.

5.  Dancing in the Moonlight:

Dancing can be very romantic.  Put on a favourite song, grab your date’s hand, and have him or her join you in a pool-side slow dance under the stars.

7.  Movie Night:

Instead of going to the cinema, project a movie onto the side of your house or a wall.  Or you can even purchase an outdoor projector screen.  You and your date can float around in the pool while watching your favourite romantic comedy.

8.  Cozy Spa:

After dinner, a night-time soak in a warm, cozy spa is a great way to complete the perfect night.

With swimming pool ownership, there are many options for date nights right in your backyard.  Having a pool in such close proximity to your house allows for convenience and the ability to plan and execute the perfect evening.  Even if you don’t have a swimming pool this year for Valentine’s Day, it’s never to late to start the pool buying process.  Leisure Pools offers swimming pool ranges that are stunningly beautiful, creating the perfect ambiance for romance.  Contact Leisure Pools today (leisurepools.co.nz) and Get Swimming in Quality and Style.
