There are very few pleasures in life that match up to taking a cool dip on a hot summer day. The city’s social clubs, premier hotels, housing complexes and even Airbnbs with pools are the perfect spots to plan a day in the sun and throw a fantastic pool party this summer.

And while it may sound cool, it can also involve some planning. So, here’s a guide for you to take inspiration from — and throw the perfect summer pool party!



It is important to pick out a piece of swimwear that is not only glam, but also comfortable. This season, opt for bikinis, monokinis or swimsuits in bold colours and prints.

P.S.: Don’t forget to get that perfect #sunkissed photo for your Insta feed!


Along with the right outfit and sunscreen, don’t forget the right shades too. Be it classic round frames or quirky shapes or even retro inspired ski glasses, flaunt your choicest sunnies at the party!

Sun hats

When at a pool party, don’t forget to jazz up your look with a summer hat! Not only does it shield you from the sun, but also adds a hint of playfulness to your ensemble.

Pool floats

What is a pool party if you don’t have cute pool floats to lounge around on? Be it the giant neon pink flamingo or a donut or a pizza slice, pool floats are fun for kids and adults alike, and make for the perfect prop to take photos with.

From meats to veggies, fire up the grill to enjoy some quick and tasty snacks while relaxing by the pool. For a fuss-free experience, brands like Meatigo have a large selection of marinated meats.



If there’s a pool party, can cocktails be far behind? Skip the basic G&T and vodka punches, and try your hand at these unique cocktails that will leave your guests impressed. Try using fresh seasonal fruits like oranges, mangoes and pomegranates to add flavour to your drinks and always remember to serve with lots of ice!



Last, but not the least, your choice of music must be right, because that is what sets the mood at a party. Aside from popular Bollywood party songs like Sunny Sunny, Lazy Lamhe and Paani Wala Dance, also keep a good mix of EDM numbers on the list to make sure everyone can dance the day away.
