Hong Kong Pools – The Best Places to Cool Off This Summer

Hong Kong may be known for its shopping and dim sum, but did you know that the city also boasts some of the world’s finest swimming pools? From rooftop pools with breathtaking city views to natural infinity ponds tucked into mountainsides – we’ve discovered some picturesque spots where swimmers can cool off while cooling off in water.

The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong indoor pool is an eye-catcher. Complete with striped lounge chairs and marble Roman columns reminiscent of Gatsby movies, this exquisite space can only be described as breathtaking. Situated on Level 9 of the hotel, this breathtaking space provides stunning views over Hong Kong Harbour and skyline courtesy of designer Rocco Yim’s innovative approach that seamlessly marries aesthetics with wellness and fitness technologies.

Hotel ICON offers the ideal rooftop pool experience to relax. Boasting unparalleled Victoria Harbour Views and Hong Kong skylines as a breathtaking backdrop, its heated pool is a sanctuary from city noise. Additionally, guests can use its state-of-the-art double height gym or enjoy cocktails from their Pool Bar.

Tung Chung Swimming Pool offers plenty of reasons for visiting, from its eye-catching seashell-like design and natural sunlight, to the variety of pools suited for each age and level of expertise available within its complex. There’s something here for every swimmer – from main pool, teaching pool and leisure pool, plus terrace seating where you can watch Ngong Ping cable cars pass by as the sun goes down.

Swimming can be a fantastic way to stay healthy and relax this summer, but it is essential that swimmers understand the risks involved with the activity. Recently, the Securities and Futures Commission warned of 20 public pools only partially opening due to a shortage of lifeguards.

So we have put together this list of Hongkong pools to keep you safe in the water this season, whether you are new to swimming or an experienced pro. Be sure to visit one of these pools this summer and stay safe in the water.
