Hong Kong beaches, while free and beautiful, can get quite crowded and messy on hot summer days, so you may prefer swimming pools in a more hygienic environment. But not everyone has a pool in their backyard, so what to do when you’re hankering for a dip?

A few hotels in Hong Kong offer day passes to pools that include access to fitness centres as well, so you can have fun with your family and friends and take some cute pictures for Instagram while you are at it. We have rounded up a list of the most gorgeous hotel pools in Hong Kong that you can spend a relaxing day at without having to check-in.
