Top 5 Hong Kong Pools

As summer is approaching, it’s high time to dip your feet into the water and cool down. Public and government-run pools are a great option, but they tend to be crowded. Thankfully, Hong Kong is home to many hotel swimming pools that offer (semi) private time, top-notch facilities and amazing views – and all at a much more luxurious price point than your typical pool.

While some are purely for swimming, others boast an extensive menu of activities like dining, massages and more. The best part: they all feature breathtaking Hong Kong views that make a swim in them even more enjoyable.

The first on our list of hk pools is the one at Cordis Hotel, towering over Mongkok’s busy streets. The outdoor heated rooftop pool is sure to impress, with fibre optic underwater lights and an audio system that create spectacular visual effects while you swim. After a relaxing swim, unwind on the deck chairs or float in the jacuzzi.

One of the most popular pools in HK, the Ma On Shan swimming complex features a main pool with spectator stands and two teaching pools that can accommodate up to 1,200 people. Kids will love the four waterslides, which include mushroom- and tree-shaped ones as well as a toddler training pool that includes a variety of whimsical water installations.

Located in Kwun Tong, this pool is perfect for those with kids. The outdoor pool is equipped with small slides, water guns and animals to climb on. There’s also a toddler training pool and an indoor pool with a pirate ship. It’s closed on Tuesdays for cleaning.
