With the mercury rising, a trip to the beach or the local pool can be a welcome escape from the heat. But what if you’re looking for a little luxury while you soak in the water? Well, you’re in luck – many of Hong Kong’s hotels boast their own swimming pools. And, unlike public and government-run pools, these ones offer a (semi) private space to enjoy your dip, top-notch facilities and amazing views to boot. Plus, you can also earn bonus Asia Miles when you book your hotel stay with Cathay.

LCSD pools reopen for summer

With all 44 LCSD-managed public swimming pools reopening this week after a phase two easing of coronavirus restrictions, it’s time to get your swim on and kickstart your summer with a splash. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing spot with views of Victoria Harbour, or one with mega water slides for the toddlers in your life, here are the best hk pools to cool off and recharge.

The perfect spot for a hot summer’s day, this destination public pool is popular with families thanks to the slew of waterslides and water play zones for kids of all ages. Plus, it’s right next to Belcher’s Bay Park, so once the kiddos have exhausted their energy swimming and have a hankering for some fresh air, they can hop across the bridge to play in the outdoor playground and run off some steam.

If you’re in the mood for a little more upscale pool action, head over to the W Hong Kong, which features an expansive 76th floor pool that looks out onto Victoria Harbour and the city skyline. And if that’s not enough, you can even sign up for the hotel’s annual wellness membership to reap exclusive benefits like full access to the pool and fitness centre; wellness consultations and treatments; and spa credit.

The largest pool in the HK government-owned fleet, this family favourite is always packed on the weekends and during the weekday school holidays. They’re known for having the longest and highest water slides in town, which makes it a hit with older kids. Plus, they have a round stepping pool, toddler and leisure pools, along with the standard teaching, diving and Olympic-sized pools.

The only thing that can make a day at this public pool even better? A visit to the adjacent Float Lounge, where you can relax in the warm water while sipping a cocktail or craft beer. Or, grab a bite from their on-site eatery while you sunbathe and take in the scenic surroundings. It’s the ultimate way to enjoy a lazy poolside afternoon.
