Hong Kong’s summer sun may offer much-needed respite from its oppressive streets, yet humidity, frizzy locks, and high temperatures may leave anyone wanting a cool place to retreat to. Luckily, there is no shortage of luxurious hotel pools offering refreshing cooling retreats along with stunning views of Victoria Harbour or city skylines.

With just a bit of advance planning, your summer vacation can include taking a swim in one of Hong Kong’s top pools – from infinity pools that offer panoramic ocean views to rooftop pools offering beautiful sunset views, there are options galore. These Hong Kong hotels have it covered!

The InterContinental Grand Stanford boasts three infinity pools that will make you feel as though you’re swimming right in Victoria Harbour itself. When not relaxing by splashing around, enjoy some refreshing drinks or snacks at their tea deck dining area.

Though Hong Kong’s public pools will open their doors this summer, some will not function according to expectations due to staff shortages. According to Hong Kong Recreation and Sports Professionals General Union’s assessment, lifeguard shortages were caused by multiple factors; modest salary increases would not solve this issue and authorities were advised to change their salary structures and create longer career pathways for lifeguards.

Luxury staycations are all about taking time for yourself and pampering yourself, and nothing does this better than an infinity pool with panoramic views of Hong Kong skyline or Victoria Harbour. These exquisite hotel pools will leave you feeling like royalty during your luxurious staycation.

On the waterfront of Castle Peak Bay marina is this exquisite pool that’s great fun for both adults and kids.
