Hong Kong Pools – The Best Places to Cool Off in the Summer Heat

Swimming isn’t just an amazing cardio workout – it’s also great for your mental health. Studies have shown that regular swimming can reduce stress and anxiety levels. Plus, it boosts your metabolism which means more energy for you! So, this summer why not kick back and enjoy the sunshine with a dip in one of Hong Kong’s awesome hongkong pools? From a rooftop pool with spectacular views to mega water play areas for toddlers, there’s something for everyone.

The summer heat in Hong Kong can be unbearable, but you don’t have to go far to escape the sweltering conditions. Many hotels offer stunning indoor and outdoor swimming pools with spectacular views of the city skyline. From luxury resorts with infinity pools to contemporary city centre hotels, there’s a pool for every occasion.

Some of Hong Kong’s most stunning hotel pools are hidden away on the top floors of their buildings. The pool at Cordis Hong Kong, for example, is located on the 40th floor and is fitted with fibre optic underwater lights that create dazzling effects on the water. The pool itself is surrounded by cabanas and deck chairs, making it the perfect spot to relax after a long swim.

Another show-stopping hotel pool is the Ritz Carlton pool in Hong Kong, which is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass windows that let the sun shine down on the water and reflect off of it. The 144 LED screens that cover the bottom of the pool and ceiling create an illusion of coral reefs and bright blue skies.

A number of public swimming pools are opening up again this summer, including the Victoria Peak pool, which offers breathtaking vantage points and fun water installations like mushroom- and tree-shaped fountains, as well as some of the world’s fastest waterslides. The new Ma On Shan Swimming Complex is also set to open later this year.

While there are plenty of amazing public swimming pools to choose from, private pools are often the most comfortable and convenient option. They tend to be quieter, and most of the time you’ll have the place all to yourself! Klook has a wide range of exclusive staycation packages at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong that include access to their pool, so check them out and start planning your next summer getaway.

The pool at Eaton Hong Kong isn’t technically a rooftop bar but it certainly makes up for it with its quirky pink and seafoam green colour palette and flamingo decor. What’s more, Hong Kong doesn’t allow more than 30% of capacity in any pool area so you’re bound to have this stunning pool all to yourself!
