(WorldKings.org) The highest swimming pool in the world is 484 meters above ground level.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, is a Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company five-star hotel, located on the top floors of the International Commerce Centre, West Kowloon, Hong Kong, near Kowloon station.

 

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, was formerly located in Central, Hong Kong, where it operated from 1993 to 2008. It reopened at International Commerce Centre for business on 29 March 2011. Its interior lighting was designed by British lighting designer Sally Storey.

 

Offering 312 rooms, it occupies the 102nd to 118th floors of the Sun Hung Kai Properties-owned International Commerce Centre, and was the world's highest hotel from 2011-2019 (currently surpassed by Rosewood Guangzhou located on the top floors of the Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre). The hotel features a pool located on the 118th floor, which is the highest swimming pool in the world, at 484 meters above ground level.

Opened in March 2011, the infinity-style amenity comes complete with LED screens that cover the ceiling and one wall so visitors can enjoy a view of coral reefs and peaceful skies, as well as the Victoria Harbor below, while they swim.

 

The hotel's arrival lobby is on the 9th floor where guests are greeted by receptionists and taken to express elevators. The express elevators take guests 425 m above the ground in 50 seconds to the main lobby on the 103rd floor. Guest keycards are required to use the hotel elevators to access the hotel rooms on floors 104–117 and the swimming pool and gym on floor 118. An exclusive club lounge for guests staying in club rooms and suites is located on floor 116 along with the spa.
