Wouldn’t it be a dream to have a hotel room with its own pool, just for yourself? The choice of hotels with private pools is growing because luxurious hotels are becoming more and more in demand.
What does private pool mean?
It means that your room, suite or villa is equipped with a private pool. This means that only the guests of this room can swim in it, in contrast to the swim-up pools to which several rooms share access. This can be an infinity pool, a fenced pool with a privacy screen or an open pool (so the neighbours can look enviously). The size can range from a paddling pool to a really big pool where you can swim your laps.
Which destinations are suitable for a holiday in a hotel with a private pool?
Logically, warm destinations come into question so that splashing around in the pool is really pleasant. Most hotels with private pools are located in Mediterranean countries such as Greece. In cooler regions, hotels have heated pools. In tropical climes like the Caribbean, Africa or Southeast Asia, pools are a welcome refreshment all year round. Here you can find out the current entry requirements for all destinations.
Here is my selection of the 10 most beautiful hotels with private pool rooms

On the Greek island of Corfu, with its paradisiacal beaches and green pine forests, lies the adults-only hotel TUI BLUE Atlantica Grand Med Resort.

Pool under palm trees: TUI BLUE Bahari Zanzibar
A private pool in Zanzibar, under tall palm trees and with sea view – what more could you want? Your beach villa in the tropical garden of the TUI BLUE Bahari Zanzibar also has a whirlpool inside. The villa with romantic four-poster bed is the perfect place for an unforgettable honeymoon a few steps away form the white sand beaches. The very popular hotel was affected by a fire on the neighbouring property and is currently being renovated. It will be back up and running in December 2021. Read through the guest reviews, which speak for themselves. The hospitality of the Zanzibarians, together with the huge culinary offer of the five-star hotel, will convince you!
Infinity pool all to yourselves: TUI BLUE Elounda Village on Crete
My absolute favourite for a holiday with a private pool is the adult-only hotel TUI BLUE Elounda Village in Crete. The 5 stars are more than deserved. Modern architecture meets luxury, and the blue of the infinity pools is a match for the sea and the sky. Whether you choose the “Deep Blue Deluxe Bungalow with Sea View” or the Maisonette – your infinity pool and the sea seem to merge. If you want to show off on Instagram your stunning views, this is the place to be 😉 You can try out the all-inclusive offer in the 4 restaurants and work off the calories in the BLUEf!t sports courses.
Honeymoon on Crete: TUI BLUE Insula Alba
Refresh yourself whenever you like in your own pool at the gorgeous hotel TUI BLUE Insula Alba in northern Crete. In addition to double rooms and honeymoon rooms with private pool, the junior suite with private pool stands out. Really cosy furnishings and the blue pool with a view of the sea – amazing! A little cheaper are the double rooms with a swim-up pool, i.e. access to a larger pool shared by several rooms. This hotel with spa is a great place to relax and enjoy togetherness, as it is an adults-only hotel.

TUI BLUE Lagoon Palace: Pool or whirlpool?
It almost feels like your own finca when you stand on the terrace of your junior suite or suite at the TUI BLUE Lagoon Palace hotel. The spacious pool is surrounded by a stone wall and, with the blue sea in the background, makes the Mediterranean holiday feeling in Chalkidiki perfect. You don’t need a big pool and want to snuggle in the bathtub instead? Book a room with a whirlpool on the balcony. If you are looking for more action in addition to relaxation in the wellness area, this friendly hotel for adults only is the right place for you: a large range of sports and water sports ensure a change from doing nothing. For families, I recommend the sister hotel TUI BLUE Lagoon Princess, which also has hotel rooms with a private pool.

Are you planning a round trip through bustling Vietnam and looking for a crowning finale to your trip? Or do you want to get married romantically on the beach? The 5-star TUI BLUE Nam Hoi An is located 50 km south of Hoi An, directly on a long sandy beach.

Swimming fun for families: TUI BLUE Oceana Suites in Tunisia
Framed by a subtropical garden, the pool of your junior suite at TUI BLUE Oceana Suites is a feast for the eyes for this reason alone. The 22 m² pool can still be used when it is too cool in other Mediterranean areas. The wide sandy beach, the spacious grounds and the spa make the 5-star hotel in Tunisia an insider tip in autumn. From 2022, the hotel will have a kids’ club that will keep your children busy with all kinds of activities, while you can relax and enjoy your private pool. You can choose between half board and all-inclusive. The hotel is bookable from November 2021.
Lots of privacy: TUI BLUE Oceanis Beach on Kos
You can enjoy your own pool at the adults-only hotel TUI BLUE Oceanis Beach, undisturbed by the gaze of others.

The hotel, not far from Kos Town, has a spa, a great entertainment programme and is well equipped for active holidaymakers with its range of sports. Thanks to all-inclusive, you can feast on the delicacies of Greek cuisine.
Stylish and luxurious: TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare on Kos
Because it’s so beautiful, here’s the Greek island of Kos again. I would book the suite with private pool directly, that’s how much the photo convinces me. A spacious pool shielded from the outside world is part of your stylish villa. The Adults-only hotel has a huge pool area with plenty of swim-up rooms, should the villa not be within your holiday budget after all. The 5-star TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare hotel has 2 restaurants and 3 bars, a varied sports programme and is located directly on the sandy beach. You can explore the beautiful island of Kos by rental car or mountain bike, both of which can be organised through the hotel.
