As the summer heats up, dripping air-con units and overcrowded beaches will be all too familiar for residents of Hong Kong. But for those willing to venture off the beaten path, the city’s best hotel pools offer an oasis of relaxation, serene water views and a little luxury. From swimming laps in a glamorous rooftop pool to sipping champagne in a premium cabana, here are the best places to soak up the sun this season.

The stunning indoor pool at the five-star hotel The Peninsula Hong Kong offers guests a taste of Rome, thanks to its unique Romanesque design. Complete with statuesque columns, the pool is a showstopper with sweeping skyline views as its backdrop. Guests can relax in the luxurious, palatial setting and take plenty of Instagram-worthy snapshots to show off their swimsuit bod.

Those who prefer a more casual swim can head to the outdoor pool at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong. A favourite amongst locals, this pool has a calming water zone, a leisure and diving pool and a toddler pool. Guests can also enjoy a range of poolside refreshments including smoothies and iced coffee, as well as a luscious selection of snacks and desserts such as Alaskan King crab rolls and strawberry mirlitons.

Another must-visit pool for a day out in the sun is the 25-metre outdoor pool at Rosewood Hong Kong. Located on the sixth floor of the ultra-luxe property, the pool is only open to hotel guests and features a deck with loungers and a luscious selection of drinks and snacks. The pool is also home to a weekly yoga class, perfect for those looking for some tranquility this summer.
