A swim-up room gives you direct access to arguably the most important part of a hotel – the pool. Rooms on the ground floor of the hotel are connected to the pool via the terrace, so you can step straight into the water. And swim-up suites on the first or second floors are connected to the pool via a short set of stairs. Either way, you can go from bed to pool in seconds (quite literally) and don’t, technically, need to leave your room for a swim and sunbathing session. Perfect.
Our TUI SENSATORI Resort Azul Jamaica in Negril is located right on Seven Mile Beach – a gorgeous strip of powdery white sand that runs along the west coast of the Caribbean island. You’ll get a true taste of Jamaican culture here, with rum-tasting classes and Jamaican cooking demonstrations to get involved in, plus a chill-out Reggae lounge, too. To make that tropical escape even more special, you can upgrade your room to a swim-up suite. The premium area swim-up suites here come with a private terrace, an aromatherapy menu, and a king-sized bed for that added luxurious touch.
Holiday Village Rhodes from our sister company, First Choice, is perfect for families, and you’ll be pleased to hear that the swim-up rooms are kid-friendly too. There are loads for you to choose from, including a deluxe family swim-up, double swim-up room, and even a family swim-up room with a terrace and Jacuzzi, too. You can even go one step further and opt for a deluxe suite with your own private pool. Whichever option you choose, you’ll be just a few metres away from the water at all times. This activity-based hotel also lines up an adventure splash park and an Aerial Adventure high ropes course, and unique activities like archery, raft-building, and volleyball are on the agenda, too.
The impressive JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort in Thailand is pretty much the epitome of opulence. Add a decadent swim-up suite into the mix and you’ve got the perfect holiday for luxury lovers. The seriously-stylish swim-up rooms back onto the main pool at the resort – which just happens to be South East Asia’s longest – and come with a terrace, sun loungers and a parasol. You won’t want to leave the room for the entire holiday. When you do, however, you’ve got four restaurants to choose from, loads of activities like mountain biking and cooking classes to get stuck into, and the hotel is conveniently located right next to the beach, too. There’s also an onsite luxury spa, with treatments like body scrubs and therapy baths, and a kids’ club to keep little ones entertained.
This recently refurbished, adults-only hotel TUI Sensimar Adriatic Beach boasts fresh, contemporary interiors and a prime spot on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, right at the foot of a pine-clad mountain. The main pool here is huge and has an infinity edge so you can look out onto the sea. Book a swim-up junior suite, and you’ll be able to enjoy sea views from the balcony or terrace, and take a dip in the pool whenever you fancy. Just to make that relaxing or romantic escape even more special, you’ll get bathrobes, slippers and a bottle of wine on arrival with your swim-up room, too.
The TUI Sensimar El Dorado Seaside Suites puts the romance into couples’ escapes. It’s set on a secluded, palm-backed stretch of sand, and lines up poolside butler service, Jacuzzi® rooms as standard and plenty of gourmet dining options for those romantic dinners. You can also upgrade your junior suite to a swim-up suite, so you can step straight from your terrace into the long lazy river, and switch between Jacuzzi® and pool as you please. Pick a premium swim-up suite, and you’ll also get little extras like an iPod docking station, an aromatherapy menu, and access to a private area with concierge service and poolside butler service. When you need to refuel after all that swimming, sunbathing and being waited on, you can make the most of the Gourmet Inclusive® set up at this hotel and dine in style with dishes prepared by international chefs.
