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

Hong Kong summers can leave us sweaty and sticky – the combination of sun exposure and humidity being particularly unforgiving – but swimming is an excellent way to stay cool while staying fit and healthy all year round! Not only is it great exercise but swimming also serves as a fantastic cooling off method! Swimming provides us with both exercise and relief!

There are plenty of public swimming pools across the city, but some can become overcrowded quickly. If you enjoy lounging around in a pool environment and have extra cash at hand, a handful of luxury hotels offer private pools where you can indulge in this experience.

W Hong Kong boasts one of the most luxurious Hong Kong pools on its 76th-floor rooftop pool, offering stunning city views from their incredible rooftop infinity pool and terrace pool with jacuzzi-pool. Additionally, there’s plenty of deckchairs for relaxing and lounging around – plus high-speed Internet, cocktails, and bites-to-eat available so that you can truly unwind and unwind in this spectacular rooftop location!

Are you in Mongkok and seeking the ultimate pool experience? Check out the Cordis Hotel pool! This breathtaking space is encased with floor-to-ceiling glass windows for breathtaking city views; plus there’s even a mirrored ceiling and LED wall display, creating some amazing optical illusions! Please note this pool is only open to hotel guests – to take advantage of it during your staycation package, be sure to book it via Klook today and make this gorgeous pool part of it all!

Outdoor Kwun Tong swimming complex offers another excellent choice, featuring a main pool, two teaching pools, and ample lounge space. Beautifully kept up, with plenty of seating options including water slides for kids!

Entering this complex requires a small fee, but is well worth it when considering its spectacular views and tranquil atmosphere. Be warned: peak times can become very crowded so make sure to arrive early to secure a place at the pool!

Make sure to stop by Wing Lai Yuen Sichuan Noodles nearby – they offer some of the finest Chinese noodles around!

Hong Kong Recreation and Sports Professionals General Union issued a press release this week detailing how staff shortages had led to several public swimming pools closing due to staff shortages this week, with 20 public pools and 500 licensed private pools only partially opening due to lack of lifeguards.
