Planning a romantic retreat? Some might think Phuket has lost its charm, but we think not!
These pool access rooms in Phuket are your best bet – the ideal rooms that let you lounge together in the water right outside your room, and with the perfect views to boot.
If you’re all about the swimming-pool-with-a-view life, allow us to spoil you rotten with these 11 romantic pool access rooms in Phuket with stunning views!
1. Dive into your personal pool on top of the hills – Kalima Resort & Spa
If you prefer to stay outdoors most of the time during your holiday, then this should be your pick for the itinerary.
Well located in the middle of nightlife, shopping and oozing traditional Thai vibes, Kamila Resort & Spa is your ideal get-up-and-about place to stay at. Knowing there’s always a private pool and a spa waiting back home is soothing, don’t you think so?!
You can’t go wrong with booking a Double Pool Villa room which comes with a private balcony plunge pool and sun deck with stunning sea views.

If you’ve ever wished to stay at scenic heights, Pool Villas will be your hilltop palace with a sweeping 220-degree view of the Andaman aqua from the terrace with a personal pool!

And when hungry, indulge in a feast of exotic tastes with a view at four different dining spots at Kalima Resort.
Sip wine selected from the wine cellar at Malika Terrace; dine with amazing culinary creations at Thai Taste; soak in the sunset with light meals and drinks at Lima Rock; or, chill out at Trip’s Pool Bar with drinks in the middle of a massive infinity pool.
And at the end of the day? Kiss each other goodnight after a relaxing time at Busaba Spa. You know you deserve it!
2. Dive in the pool first thing in the morning! – Crest Resort & Pool Villas
Living up to its tagline “Where Nature Heals”, Crest Resort and Pool Villas is a luxurious eco-designed resort perched on a gentle hillside by the royal Tri Trang beach. The resort is surrounded by tropical rainforests with 240-degree views of nature.

The lavish accommodation is carefully designed keeping the sky, earth and ocean in mind (modern back-to-nature design!) – and we highly recommend the Deluxe Pool Access Sea View – because who wouldn’t love to dive into the pool the first thing in the morning?!

3. Get lost in a view of the sunset over Andaman Sea – Surin Beach Resort
Enjoy a surprisingly laid back life in Phuket. With soft-toned décor, Surin Beach Resort presents the Pool Access Oceanfront Room – which has a pool just steps away from your personal outdoor terrace.

For lovebirds, you can also consider the Honeymoon Pool Access Jacuzzi that will take your romance to the next level with your own jacuzzi at the private terrace, leading to that personal pool mere steps away!
The resort also offers an outdoor alfresco infinity swimming pool with an ocean view, and if you’re up for it, the beach is also accessible directly from the hotel.
If you two are hardcore foodies, you’re in for a treat because By The Sea Restaurant offers delicious Western, Asia and Thai dishes. (We heard their Barbeque and Seafood specialities are truly yummy!).
Once you’re satisfied, head over to the rooftop pool bar and chill out on bean bags with the extraordinary Andaman view. (Buy-one-get-one-free offers on cocktails and local beers are available daily from 6.30 to 7pm!)
Pro tip: Don’t miss the famous FantaSea cultural show, just 3km away.
Word of caution: While the uncluttered Surin beach is famous for snorkelling, kayaking and surfing, take extra care of rough tides while swimming at Surin beach during low tides.

4. Plunge straight into a waterworld – IndoChine Resort & Villas
Whether you prefer to hop on the shuttle bus to the beach, or swim the day away at one of the two outdoor pools, IndoChine Resort & Villas have it all sorted out for you.
Situated on the tropical hills of Patong, this little haven offers the best of both worlds – exciting nightlife and secluded privacy for alone time together. Plants and water features strongly enhancing its oriental-nature theme will make your retreat even more relaxed than ever.

Enjoy your stay in the Sky Suit nestled right on top of the hills, that opens to a private terrace and into a private plunge pool with spa jets. The breath-taking sea view with lush greenery will compel you to extend your holiday at this resort. (because it’s just too beautiful!)
When you feel famished, devour a range of mouth-watering Asian and International dishes (think Cajun Salmon Cutlet *drools*) prepared by the highly experienced staff at IndoChine Waterfront Restaurant. Otherwise, enjoy a date with drinks and bites at St. Tropez Alfresco Beach Club with the beautifully lit-up panoramic ocean view.
5. Before anything, dive right into SouthEast Asia’s largest lagoon pool – Thavorn Beach Village Resort & Spa Phuket
This highly praised resort offers contemporary Thai-style bungalows that each serve different tastes of luxury.

If you’re looking for an easy 10 steps to a stunning lagoon pool, then the Tropical Pool Access room here is tailored specially for you. The tropical botanical greenery and cascading waterfalls makes this free-form swimming pool a peaceful and private place perfect for honeymooners.
Did we mention, it’s also one of the largest swimming pools in South East Asia?! The pool-side dining and a cool swim-up bar is just the cherry on top.
Situated right in the middle of Patong (read: great nightlife) and Kamala Beach (read: exotic beach with a local feel) – Thavorn Beach Village Resort automatically becomes a perfect place to mix the duo. A few minutes drive via regular shuttle services makes both places easily accessible.

If the sun, sand and sea happens to be your haven, then you may opt for their Beachfront Cottage, just 3 steps from your bedroom’s patio, en route the shore.
But we highly recommend booking a Hillside Ocean Facing suite which not only offers a private balcony jacuzzi with 180-degree panoramic views of the ocean, but (surprise, surprise!!) the room is also accessible by cable car!
Indulge in the resort’s wide range of wellness activities, treat your partner to a romantic dinner by the beach, or take a secluded dip into its private picturesque Nakalay beach – the call is yours!

7. The romantic pools here are what honeymoons are made for – Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach
Gone are the days when all a resort needed was one big rectangular pool of water. Travellers are now searching for extraordinary features – and Crowne Plaza Phuket is more than happy to oblige!
Set in Mukham Bay, this resort offers fresh view of Phuket’s Phanwa beach, complemented with décor inspired by the local rich Sino-Portuguese heritage. (Think marbled floors, rich wood accents and flowing water throughout the resort!)
Photo Via Berliegamueta
Crowne Plaza boasts two beachfront pools and one semi-private beachfront lagoon pool, but of course, couples simply can’t miss out on your own pool access room that comes with unbelievable ocean scenery. (*high 5* if you think there’s something very soothing about swishing your feet in your own mini swimming pool with an ocean view!)
If you’re hungry, make it a date and walk to Mosaic Restaurant for all-day dining (The Grilled Salmon Steak served on root vegetable lasagne, sautéed fennel and tarragon cream? *slurpppp!*); or to Patio Alfresco restaurant that serves some of the best Italian dishes in town.
Later, knock back a drink or two together at Lobby Lounge Bar to complete your day of romantic bliss.

When it’s time, bounce into a luxury adventure at this nature’s wonderland of island hopping, white water rafting, and trekking through virgin jungles. Don’t worry, Spa Corallia is open till 7pm daily to ease away the exhaustion of the days!

The resort is carefully styled in contemporary Thai styles with light wood furnishing and modern bath features. Each room is designed with the concept, “Ayara” in mind which embodies the nature of elephants – gentle, soothing and kind.
Each accommodation unit displays varying levels of luxury, but to get a view with your swimming session, opt for the Deluxe with Pool Access room – and get lost in the enchanting Andaman Ocean views from your bedroom’s direct access to the never-ending infinity pool.

For dinner, the restaurant presents authentic Thai cuisine with a healthier twist or international recipes with local grown vegetables and freshest seafood from the grill. (We heard Fried Rice with Pineapple is a total lick chop!)
The dining place only uses coconut oil, olive oil and rice bran oil in cooking! Dine in the comfort of your living room, in the restaurant, or by the beach. We’ll leave that up to you!
The last thing you need to know? It’s a short drive from Splash Jungle Water Park and Blue Canyon Country Club – and Kayaking and Island Hopping tours can be arranged for you to explore the beautiful aquatic Andaman Sea up close in person.

The resort is close enough for you to enjoy nightlife at the famed Bangla Road, and for last minute shopping at Jungceylon Shopping Centre; but it’s also distant enough to keep you far-flung from the noise of the bustling town. (Free shuttle bus services are provided to make these points easily accessible.)
