There’s something about having your own private pool that can’t help but feel indulgent. Perhaps it’s the convenience of not having to fight for a lounge chair, or the ease of having cool turquoise waters mere steps from your bedroom. Maybe it’s the sheer pleasure of soaking in absolute privacy, uninterrupted, at any hour you please. Whatever it is, the in-room private plunge pool remains the ultimate luxury.

Here are a few we suggest diving into.

InterContinental Hong Kong

Located on the bustling Kowloon waterfront, this plush inner-city hotel proves that amazing private plunge pools aren’t exclusive to breezy island resorts. Though its three signature suites all boast outdoor Jacuzzis and twinkling skyline vistas, it’s the 7,000-square-foot Presidential Suite that steals the show. The $13,000-a-night suite comes with two 24-hour butlers, a gymnasium, and, best of all, an infinity pool with views over Victoria Harbour.


Cavo Tagoo, Mykonos, Greece

The only thing more luxurious than an infinity pool overlooking the Aegean Sea is your very own private infinity pool overlooking the Aegean Sea. Naturally, each villa at this romantic Mykonos hotelhas one, in addition to whitewashed walls, minimalist décor, four-poster beds, and spacious verandas outfitted with Jacuzzi tubs. Book the Diamond Villa, where your oversize ocean-view pool is built into a sumptuous outdoor living room.


Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Private pool or not, the views from this resortare worth the visit alone: it’s at the foot of majestic Mount Otemanu and sits on top of Bora Bora lagoon. Of its 100 dreamy overwater bungalows, 15 are outfitted with their own private saltwater plunge pool, in case the impossibly blue water beneath is too far a trek. Splurge on the 1,576-square-foot Otemanu bungalow for the largest pool of the lot—it even comes with a ladder for easy lagoon access.


Amangiri Resort, Canyon Point, UT

Though this stylish Canyon Point resort is built around a spectacular negative-edge pool, six of its suites come with their own desert-facing infinity pools for added luxury. Mesa Suite pools come with private sky terraces and sweeping mesa views, and Desert Suites get larger pools overlooking the valley’s endless dunes and plateaus. In the signature Amangiri Suite, a 60-foot rectangular swimming area is built into a spacious outdoor terrace with daybeds and an alfresco dining area—so you can sleep and eat poolside, too.


Conrad Maldives, Rangali Island, Maldives

Whether you opt for an overwater bungalow or beach villa, you can’t go wrong with the Conrad Maldives’s beautiful assortment of digs divided over two separate islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It doesn’t matter anyway; either choice gets you a sprawling wooden sundeck and an infinity plunge pool the exact same shade of jade-blue as the glittering ocean beyond. Should you manage to drag yourself from your room, make sure to check out the hotel’s world-famous Ithaa Restaurant, located 16 feet beneath the ocean.
