Why Swimming is important for oneself
Flexibility:– Swimming at Forest Cottages is a great way to kill time on a hot day and there are so many games, activities, and pass-times that swimming is essential. Swimming will by no means make you a contortionist, but it will help you stay flexible. When you swim, you are stretching and twisting various muscles which helps them remain limber.
It’s a Great Work Out:- Swimming will help you with a full-body workout that strengthens everything from your core to your arms and legs. This is because you are constantly moving and are using almost every muscle – your legs are kicking, your arms paddling your back is twisting with each stroke and your core is tightening, to keep you afloat and move more effectively.
Improve Your Heart and Lungs:- Like any aerobic exercise, when you swim, your muscles need more energy. When this happens, you are strengthening your heart and lungs as well as improving your circulation. Aerobic exercises, like swimming, make your heart and lungs work harder which strengthens them and makes them more efficient.
Relieves Stress: Exercise, in general, is good for your mental well-being as it releases endorphins which are a feel-good chemical your brain produces. On top of this, swimming has meditative qualities – the rhythm of your strokes and breathing along with the sound of water, can further add to a feeling of peace and relaxation. No wonder people love swimming!
In a conversation with Daily Express, the management of Forest Cottages revealed that its clients booking for these new rates at the hotel get exclusive access to its swimming pool and additional health club facility that includes a spa mania, steam, and sauna bath, and a gym on a complimentary basis.
All pools at Forest Cottages have certified lifeguards when they are in use. Our pools are suitable for all levels of swimmers. The Courtyard pool is the central point of the complex.

It is well shaded and an ideal venue for family pool parties.
The hotel is located in a quiet part of the suburb of Bukoto, where one feels soaked in a tropical rainforest that many visitors never get to see – especially, when its less than a 30-minute drive from the bustling central business district and of course, not forgetting the experience of watching troops of monkeys and over twenty bird species such as colored Turacos, Hornbills at eye level every morning as you take on your breakfast.
