With the blazing sun, frizzy hair and humidity in full swing, Hong Kong summers can feel pretty exhausting. Fortunately, you can escape the heat with a refreshing dip at one of the city’s most luxurious hotel pools. From the best pool to take a selfie in to swanky water zones that make you feel like royalty, we’ve rounded up the most memorable hotel swimming pools to visit this summer.
The first to open in the summer of 2015, this stunning new pool at the Four Seasons is surrounded by tropical plants and is set right on the edge of the building. The glass-bottomed pool allows you to look straight down and soak in the panoramic views of Victoria Harbour. The pool also has lounge chairs around the side and a large deck that’s perfect for relaxing or sipping cocktails by the water.
Located on the 68th floor of the W Hong Kong, this hotel’s rooftop pool has arguably the most stunning view in all of Hong Kong. With a glass bottom and spectacularly modern design, it’s the perfect place to take an Instagram-worthy swim and to relax on your day off from exploring the city.
The pool itself is a whopping 50-metres long and is surrounded by lounge chairs and couches that you can chill out on, as well as a Jacuzzi. This modern pool is a must-visit for anyone looking for some luxury to their summer getaway.
As the hottest weather of the year approaches, Hong Kong’s public and government-run pools can get super crowded. But what if you’re in search of an escape? Hong Kong’s hotel pools are a great way to beat the heat and enjoy some (semi) private time, top-notch facilities, amazing views and a chilled drink.
While Hong Kong reopens bars and swimming pools as it relaxes coronavirus restrictions, authorities warn that people should still be vigilant. The ban on gatherings of more than four people remains in place and people should continue to be careful around public beaches, the city’s health secretary says.
Despite the warnings, nearly half of Hong Kong’s public pools are expected to close their lanes and facilities reserved for swimming instruction this summer, according to a union representative. That would mean classes could be canceled, which the union said would impact not only swimmers but also the city’s sports development.
