TIDES RIVIERA MAYA, MEXICO At this part-beach, part-tropical forest resort, every villa's best accessory is the plunge pool, conveniently hidden from public view by the jungle. Doubles from $585 (low season) and $700 (high season); tidesrivieramaya.com.
JADE MOUNTAIN, ST. LUCIA If you never left the room at this honeymooners' fave, we wouldn't blame you. Each open-air suite's "missing" fourth wall has been replaced by a huge infinity pool with to-die-for views of the Pitons. Trust us, you'll take that morning swim. Doubles from $1,250 (low season) and $1,550 (high season); jademountain.com.
ECCA LODGE, SOUTH AFRICA Always keep that camera handy: At this six-suite safari lodge, you can snap photos of impalas and zebras as they cruise by your outdoor lap pool. Doubles from $996 (low season) and $1,870 (high season), all-inclusive; andbeyond.com.
SIX SENSES HIDEAWAY YAO NOI, THAILAND Each villa at this island resort is decked out with a pool and an outdoor living room, which means days go something like this: swimming and sunning in the a.m., then lunch on the couch, followed by a game for two at your chess table. Doubles from $1,197 (low season) and $1,708 (high season), including breakfast; sixsenses.com.
ASTRA SUITES, GREECE At this sugar-cube white compound on Santorini, happy hour means sipping the crisp local vino in your deluxe-pool suite at sunset. Doubles from $476 (low season) and $596 (high season), including breakfast; astrasuites.com.
LA MAMOUNIA, MOROCCO Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow jetted in for this Marrakech hotel's reopening party. We're pretty sure they spent their stay oohing and ahhing over the three riads (traditional Moroccan palaces) and their mosaic-tiled private pools. Doubles from $690 and riads from $9,196 (all seasons); mamounia.com.
