Hong Kong Pools

When we think of Hong Kong, shopping, dim sum and skyscrapers come to mind, but the city’s great swimming pools? It’s true. From the world’s highest pool on a skyscraper to a natural infinity pond on a mountainside, Hong Kong has it all when it comes to refreshing dips in cool waters. And, best of all, you can enjoy the view while doing so!

While hk pools are often crowded and packed with locals, if you’re willing to venture further afield, there are a few gems. We’re talking pools with spectacular views, top-notch facilities and plenty of dining options to keep you hydrated and well fed.

One of the most breathtaking hk pools is located at Rosewood Hong Kong. This 5-star hotel’s stunning Asaya Pool offers unbeatable vistas of the Kowloon skyline and Victoria Harbour. And although it’s only open to hotel guests, we recommend grabbing a Klook voucher for a one-night stay so you can swim, soak up the summer sun and refuel with the hotel’s incredible Asaya Kitchen.

The other great thing about the Asaya Pool is that it’s surrounded by other incredible facilities. The pool is just one part of the huge complex, which also includes a diving pool, training pool and other water activities. The whole place is perfect for swimmers of all ages, and it’s a popular spot for those wanting to do some serious laps.

If you’re looking for a bit more of a fun, family-friendly experience, check out the Hammer Hill Road swimming pool. It’s got a pirate ship, water cannons and tons of games for kids to play with, making it the most popular public swimming pool in the area. You can even rent out a cabana or daybed and enjoy a relaxing poolside meal at the restaurant!

Just remember to keep in mind that due to the coronavirus restrictions, some public and school swimming pools are closed for cleaning on different days of the week, as well as regularly for maintenance. So, be sure to check out their individual schedules on the Leisure and Cultural Services Department website before heading out to your chosen pool. Additionally, if you want to use the lockers, be sure to bring a coin with you. They are free but you will have to drop a coin in to lock the doors, so be sure you have one on hand. Also, be aware that most pools require a small entrance fee.
