Taj Exotica Resort and Spa
South Malé Atoll, Maldives
Every one of Taj Exotica's villas boasts direct lagoon access, but vacationers who reserve Deluxe Lagoon, Deluxe Beach or Premium Beach villas claim an extra aquatic benefit: their own freshwater plunge pool. The exclusive Ocean Suite not only has its own pool, but a private, sand-filled deck as well.

Can't sleep? Hop outside your bedroom to a private plunge pool at 15 different bungalows and villas here. Most cottages allow guests to bask in unobstructed lagoon views, and four have views of both the lagoon and the extinct volcano Mount Otemanu, the highest point in Bora Bora.

A former mansion, this all-suite hotel has two eponymous alcoves enhanced with their own private infinity pools. The Perivolas Suite’s mini lagoon emerges from a caved portion of the room’s terrace (which offers an expansive view of the Aegean Sea), while the New Pervivolas Suite’s ocean-view pool is entirely uncovered.
