Training around the world comes with its challenges – having to find a hotel with good facilities (pools, gym, suites with 2 rooms), and also be nice of course! As far as hotels go, they are all usually lacking inย at least one of our stipulations. Michiel found Icon Hotel and it seemed exactly what we needed for a short stay over. After a little bit of a wait to check in (annoying after flying…), we were shown our room.

Luxury suite, incredible views of the city, friendly staff and the most important – a warm, outdoor pool, and great fitness facilities. All in all, a great experience for our short stopover in HK!

Above the check-in desk – some green – which is wellย received after the smog outside!

Good size, warm, outside & empty – the best conditions for some training.

In future training, I will be bringing Michiel out of his comfort zone with swimming – in New Zealand, open water swimming will be top of the list to conquer now his confidence has massively improved!ย 

A workout with a view!
