Hong Kong Pools

When summer comes, you’ll want to take a cool dip in one of the best hongkong pools. The city has many beautiful outdoor and indoor pools that will make your next pool day a relaxing experience.

You’ll find a range of different pools in the city, from large Olympic-sized pools to smaller leisure and toddler pools. Some pools are also located in spectacular settings, such as Victoria Park and Ma On Shan. For a little bit of excitement, the Tsing Yi swimming pool has water slides that are sure to please teens and adults.

The best hongkong pools for families can be found in Hong Kong’s resort hotels. Many of them are located on the rooftop and offer stunning views of the city’s skyline. This makes them ideal for taking Instagrammable photos of your swim. The modern pool at Hotel Indigo, for example, is actually glass-bottomed and is set right at the edge of the building!

Alternatively, head to the luxurious Asaya at Rosewood Hong Kong and enjoy their 25-metre pool. Guests are given access to the pool and deck after they check-in, which is perfect for lounging around with a good book or enjoying the luscious snacks and drinks offered by the hotel.

The hotel also offers an infinity pool, so you can soak up the sun and take in the cityscape from a new perspective. Guests can also enjoy a dip in the Jacuzzi, which is another great spot for taking in the view.

Another gorgeous pool is the W Hotel’s rooftop pool, WET. This showstopping pool features a Roman-inspired design and statuesque columns, making it feel like you’re in a palatial villa. It is also the highest rooftop pool in the world at 211 metres above sea level. Non-hotel guests can visit for a fee by purchasing a WET pass.

Kerry Hotel’s breathtaking 25-metre pool is another excellent choice for a calming swim and a relaxing afternoon at the pool. It is surrounded by tropical plants and loungers, and has a fantastic view of Victoria Harbour from Hung Hom. You can also enjoy a drink and snack at the popular terrace bar after your swim.

The city’s pool scene is thriving, especially with the recent introduction of several new indoor and outdoor pools. However, some public swimming pools may only partially open this summer due to a lifeguard shortage. The Hong Kong Recreation and Sports Professionals General Union has urged the government to increase the salary of seasonal lifeguards and hire more on two-year contracts.
