Best Places to Stay with Swim-up Rooms

Many resorts and hotels now offer guests the option of a swim-up room or suite with direct access to a swimming pool from its terrace or sometimes from a short set of stairs – an added luxury that means you can go from your bed to the pool in seconds and don’t really even need to leave your room for swimming and sunbathing.
