Hong Kong Pools – Cool Off in Style This Summer

Summer in Hong Kong has arrived with its signature signs: overcrowded beaches, dripping air-con units and almost unbearable humidity. If you need a quick respite from the heat, take a dip in one of these Hong Kong pools – from luxury hotel pools with city views to kid-friendly water zones – that offer quick relief from the heat – plus with bonus Asia Miles when booking these staycations, swimming will certainly be fashionable this season!

Kowloon Park Pool was constructed as part of a major redevelopment and expansion project funded by the Jockey Club and designed by Derek Walker Associates and engineered by BuroHappold. Officially opened on 12 September 1989, initially managed by Urban Council but since disbandment at end of millennium became part of Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) management of public pools.

Tai Wan Shan swimming pool offers eight distinct pools to relax in and is an oasis for swimmers of all kinds. Indoor pools feature glass facades that let natural sunlight in while outdoor ones are set among lush greenery and mountains – plus, this is one of few swimming pools offering lane swimming to get extra exercise as well as take in city sights from an unorthodox viewpoint!

Regent Hong Kong offers another popular option with their pool at luxury hotel Regent Hong Kong, featuring an indoor heated pool that boasts breathtaking Victoria Harbour views as well as full facilities such as massage therapy. There’s even an adjacent terrace where guests can lounge by the pool while sipping cocktails or taking advantage of various food offerings.

Tai Po Swimming Pool offers an exciting swimming experience and is one of the city’s most beloved government-owned pools, known for its thrilling water slides and wide array of activities. Families will especially love this outdoor pool while its indoor counterpart offers teaching and diving pools to develop your skills further.

Although many public pools have reopened, some remain closed due to staff shortage caused by LCSD’s strike action. If you plan to visit one, be sure to check online first to avoid being disappointed! Reopening of public pools comes as a welcome relief since swimming can help relieve stress levels, lower blood pressure and boost energy. It also makes an excellent form of exercise suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels alike – so the reopening should help ease pressure off LCSD employees so they can concentrate on providing high-quality services over summer.
