More and more travelers are looking for it, and the more you travel the Caribbean the more you realize what a precious amenity it really is: the private plunge pool. There is just something special about having your own pool, a turquoise oasis for hot days on the beach, a place for seclusion and tranquility. Thankfully, more and more hotels are delivering precisely that: all over the Caribbean, you can find hotels where plunge pools are not just a luxury — they’re practically standard.
We’ve gathered our favorite “plunge pool resorts” for you in the Caribbean, with an emphasis on hotels that make the plunge pool a priority. That means either every room in the hotel has a plunge pool, or a preponderance of rooms have their own pools. (And yes, we’ve included a few where the plunge pool rooms are fewer but simply cannot be missed).
So take a journey across this list of the best Caribbean plunge pool resorts, all focused around our favorite amenity.
