Hong Kong Pools – Find Your Happy Place This Summer
The tell-tale signs of a Hong Kong summer are in full swing: packed beaches, dripping air-con and an unstoppable humidity. If you’re looking for an escape, look no further than a splash in one of the city’s top hotel pools. From glistening infinity pools overlooking Victoria Harbour to family-friendly water zones, here are the best spots for a pool staycation.
The gloomy weather is good news for swimmers, as it means less competition at the newly opened hongkong pools. But as of yesterday, 38 public swimming pools have yet to reopen due to the ongoing shortage of lifeguards. The union warned that modest salary increases will not solve the problem, and urged the government to revamp the civil service pay structure and pave a longer career path for lifeguards to attract new talent.
For a truly serene experience, head to the sixth floor of the ultra-luxury hotel Rosewood Hong Kong and take a dip in Asaya’s 25-metre outdoor pool. Exclusive to hotel guests, the pool is located right by the skyline and offers stunning views at both day and night. The pool deck is also a haven for sun-soaking and relaxing, with plenty of lounge chairs and lounge beds to choose from. And if you get hungry, the hotel offers a range of delectable snacks and drinks, from Alaskan king crab rolls to strawberry mirlitons.
For those seeking a little more action, the hotel’s sister property in Tsing Yi has a much more lively vibe. With a main pool, a teaching pool, a leisure pool and one designed especially for toddlers, the Tsing Yi pool is perfect for both families and individuals. The kids will love the kid-friendly water slides and floor fountains, while adults can kick back at the beachside bar and enjoy a drink or two.
Whether you’re soaking up the sun, splashing around with the kids or simply trying to beat the heat, these hongkong pools are sure to help you find your happy place this summer. Make sure you pack your swimmers and don’t forget the sunscreen!
