In anticipation for the glorious warmer months ahead of us – and pandemic restrictions easing – why not indulge in a scout of the best pools in Hong Kong? The Shangri-La Hotel Group boasts three top contenders to add to your summer bucket list.
1. Best for Salty Air and Harbour Views… Kerry Hotel
Hong Kong’s first urban resort, Kerry Hotel, boasts not only a 25-metre outdoor infinity pool nestled in a tropical landscaped garden but also a very Instagrammable private sun-deck, complete with cabanas, umbrellas and views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. The pool bar keeps a steady stream of rosé, light meals, and chilled drinks going, so you can really settle in for a long afternoon. Finish with a session in the sauna, steam room and whirlpool, because, why not?
Pending government restrictions, the pool is open for in-house guests, Health Club members and day pass holders. Subject to availability, for more information or to make a reservation, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (852) 2252 5350.
2. Best for Iconic Cityscape Surroundings… Island Shangri-La
The pool at the Island Shangri-La is one of the most unique in Hong Kong. Situated in the heart of Admiralty, the 28-metre outdoor space overlooks the iconic Bank of China building, set against a backdrop of lush greenery. Chic sunbeds and cabanas line the pool, where you can delight in authentic and holiday-apt Thai dishes. Right beside the pool, there is The Lawn – a landscaped garden perfect for little ones to run around in, or for stretching out with friends over card games and chilled drinks.
Pending government restrictions, the pool is open for in-house guests, Health Club members and day pass holders. For more information, please email email@example.com or call (852) 2820 8583.
3. Best for Feeling on Top of the World… JEN Hong Kong
There’s nothing quite like a rooftop pool for feeling like you’re away from it all, even when you’re in the middle of a bustling city. The JEN Hong Kong, located in the vibrant Western district, is perfect for that. The glass-walled rooftop pool sits on the 27th floor – high above the surrounding buildings. Gain some perspective while enjoying panoramic views over Hong Kong and the outer-lying islands. You’ll also find a 24-hour fitness centre with a range of equipment and floor-to-ceiling windows for those who fancy finishing their pool session with a workout hit.
The pool is available to in-house guests, pending government restrictions. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (852) 2974 1234.
