The best hongkong pools aren’t just gorgeous, they’re breathtakingly beautiful and offer some of the most spectacular views in the city. And what better way to spend your day at the pool than sipping a few refreshing drinks while taking in those views? After all, it’s a whole new experience swimming when you can also enjoy the view of Hong Kong’s skyline and Victoria Harbour.

So, if you’re looking for the perfect pool to cool off this summer, here are some of the top choices:

Kerry Hotel Hong Kong

Located on the 8th floor of the Kerry Hotel in Hung Hom, this modern outdoor pool has minimal barriers surrounding it so your views of Victoria Harbour are truly unobstructed. The 25-meter pool is also conveniently located right next to the hotel’s popular terrace bar, Red Sugar, where you can enjoy a variety of refreshing drinks and hang out during sunset for a luxurious afternoon.

If you’re looking for something a little more private, head to the rooftop of Rosewood Hotel Hong Kong where their Asaya Pool is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy your surroundings. This stunning pool has an infinity edge and overlooks Victoria Harbour’s calming waters. The pool is surrounded by lounge chairs and offers a number of delicious bar snacks and drinks that you can enjoy while hanging out here. The Asaya Pool is also a great place to enjoy some drinks during sunset as the view is just too good to miss!

A popular swimming destination for locals, Man Cheung Po (or Bride’s Pool) is a series of waterfalls and crystal-clear pools that are nestled deep in the mountains of Tai O, New Territories. The crystal-clear water is a result of a dam built in a natural gorge and is an amazing sight to see during your hike up the Man Cheung Po Nature Trail. The trail is also kid-friendly and the perfect activity for families.

Nearly Half of HK Public Pools Will Close Lanes for Swim Classes

According to a report by the HK Recreation and Sports Professionals General Union, 20 out of 45 public swimming pools will only partially open this summer because of a shortage of lifeguards. This will have a big impact on the city’s swimming clubs as they will be forced to cancel their classes. However, the LCSD said they were working to improve the situation and had already increased the salary of lifeguards to attract more people into the profession.
