Now that the sunny Hamptons season is far behind us and the temperature drops down steadily week after week, the only option for relaxing by the pool for most Manhattan-ites is an indoor pool. 

Fortunately for us, the Peninsula New York just recently unveiled its newly renovated Fitness Center and Pool. Located on the 22nd floor, the serene glass-enclosed pool boasts a sleek décor featuring teak columns, black parquet tile floor, and a stun-ning city view.  The main advantage of this very posh, very new addition is of course the glass surrounding the pool, as it allows the warm sunlight in while eliminating the chilly autumn breeze.  A wraparound sun terrace one level below is still in the construction process,  however, it promises to be a significant part of the SPA once it opens its doors in December 2008. 

A selection of healthy dining is available poolside from the hotel’s signature Naturally Peninsula menu;  A dining experience that is exclusive to the property and one of the main elements to the Peninsula Wellness Programme.  Naturally Peninsula was designed to invoke and involve all five of your senses, all while providing you with healthy food prepared with fresh ingredients.

Along with the pool, the bright and airy Fitness Center offers the latest in cardiovascular and strength training equipment, as well as a sun-lit yoga studio.  Located across the hallway from pool area, the fitness center oozes effortless elegance with its state-of-the-art equipments, bamboo floors, and teak accents.  Personal trainers are also available for those who prefers to exercise in private. 

Oh, and the best kept secret? You don’t have to be a hotel guest to enjoy the pool and fitness center, a limited amount of memberships are available for purchase — if you know the right person to ask.
