In the scorching summer heat, there’s nothing better than cooling off with a refreshing cocktail or berry smoothie. And if you’re lucky enough to live in a city like Hong Kong, there are plenty of stunning hotel pools to choose from. From dazzling infinity pools to water zones perfect for a calming swim, these hotels offer a relaxing oasis with spectacular views of the city skyline or Victoria Harbour.
Set on the sixth floor of ultra-luxury hotel Rosewood, this 25-meter-long infinity pool allows anyone who pays a visit to soak up the sun and enjoy a one-of-a-kind view of Victoria Harbour’s calming waters. Spend the morning swimming laps for a workout and then head back to the pool deck for some lounging with a delicious selection of bar chow and snacks—think Alaskan king crab rolls, strawberry mirlitons and a curated list of champagne and cocktails.
There’s no denying that Hong Kong has some of the most gorgeous hotel pools in the world. These beautiful swimming spots have a breathtaking view of Hong Kong’s bustling city skyline or the calm waters of Victoria Harbour, and they are perfect for kicking back and relaxing in the summer heat.
With a glass wall to protect the swimmers from the surrounding buildings, this outdoor pool is the perfect place to escape from the noise of the city. Float in the warm, inviting waters and listen to soothing beats with an underwater audio system or dance the night away beneath the glow of fibre optic lights.
While the number of public and government-run swimming pools reopened this week, many are still closed for cleaning or staffing reasons. The coronavirus pandemic has also forced some private pools to shut down, as well as certain facilities like toddler pools. The shortage of lifeguards has been blamed on the low pay for lifeguards in HK, who are classified as artisans under the civil service contract, and limited career advancement opportunities. The HK Pool Guards’ Union is calling for an overhaul of the salary structure and promotion path to attract new talent. It has also urged authorities to allow pool clubs to book their facilities during operational hours so that they can operate as normal. This would help to alleviate the crisis, as well as free up space for public swimming.
