If you’re looking for a fun way to cool off in the summer, look no further than a dip in a pool. Swimming not only offers a great workout, but it also has many mental health benefits. Plus, it’s a fantastic way to spend some quality time with loved ones. Luckily, Hong Kong has plenty of great pools to choose from.

Whether you’re looking to relax in your hotel pool or want to cool off in the city’s best rooftop pools, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here are just a few of the top pools to check out in Hong Kong:

Infinity pool

Hong Kong is no stranger to iconic architectural feats, and its hotels certainly don’t disappoint when it comes to creating stunning pool areas. From the glistening infinity pool at the Rosewood, to the breathtaking waterside bar at the Four Seasons, Hong Kong’s hotels have some of the best rooftop pools around. So grab a drink, swim some laps and soak up the views – what’s not to love?

The outdoor pool at the Mandarin Oriental is a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Located on the roof of the world-famous shopping and business center, this stunning pool is surrounded by breathtaking views of the skyline. Its floor-to-ceiling windows give swimmers a perfect view of Victoria Harbour and the surrounding mountains. Plus, the pool is beautifully adorned with waterfalls and tropical fishes to make your swimming experience even more enjoyable.

At a whopping 108 meters, the pool at the Ritz-Carlton is the highest in the world. Designed by Terry Farrell, this stunning complex is housed on the 118th floor of the International Commerce Centre (ICC), Hong Kong’s tallest building. The glass and marble-lined pool is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a breathtaking view of Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbour, while LCD screens on the walls and ceiling display images of clouds, bubbles and beach scenes.

While the pool may be high, it doesn’t come without its problems. The soaring temperatures can cause the water to get hot quickly, and there are also concerns over security and staffing. Despite these issues, the pool is still a popular place for people to cool off.

Public pools

The hottest months of the year are a great time to enjoy a leisurely swim in Hong Kong’s many beautiful public and government-run pools. Many of the city’s pools are open all year round, but during the summer, they tend to become crowded. If you want to avoid the crowds, you can try visiting one of the city’s indoor pools.

Many of the city’s pools are closed at the moment due to a shortage of lifeguards. According to a union rep, about half of the city’s 45 public pools have told swimming clubs that they cannot operate all their lanes or facilities. The union warned that this could affect the industry’s development and swimmers’ safety. Fortunately, some pools are set to reopen this week.
