Building the Premier Club in Asia

Sky Pool

Under a sweeping glass dome, the rooftop swimming pool is indubitably the crown gem of the sleek new clubhouse and an unmistakable Tokyo landmark. The 6-lane, 25-meter pool, which has a uniform depth, beckons lap swimmers and provides rejuvenating aquatic programs for all ages and skill levels throughout the year.

The surrounding glass walls can be opened on balmy days and a starlit swim is sure to be an experience without equal. Enchanting views of Tokyo Tower are ever-present.
