12 Unique All-Inclusive Swim-up Rooms You’ll Fall in Love With


One of the first things most people look for before booking a vacation, particularly one of the all-inclusive varieties, is whether or not there is a swimming pool at their hotel resort of choice. International booking agents report that some of the questions potential guests ask, revolve around whether there are multiple pools at the resort, how private these pools are, and quite often, whether increasingly popular swim-up rooms are available.

What is a swim-up room? A swim-up room, sometimes referred to as swim-out room, is a hotel room or resort room located on the ground floor that allows you to walk out into the swimming pool directly from your patio. More often than not, this pool connects multiple swim-up rooms across the hotel or resort. The concept was popularized by Caribbean all-inclusive resort Sandals.

Swim up Crystal Lagoon Beachfront Butler Suite

Sandals is known for its all-inclusive resorts featuring spectacular swimming pools. Even though every Sandals resort sits on a spectacular white-sand beach, often lounging around the swimming pool is a favorite among guests! Sandals is one of the few all-inclusive resorts featuring luxurious swim-up rooms. An extension of their swim-up bar concept, Sandals has introduced and over the years perfected their swim-up suites in the Caribbean.

Guests love these suites because it makes it possible for them to go for a romantic nightly swim right from the doorstep of their room or wake up in the morning and dive right in for a morning swim in the Caribbean sunshine.

Sandals all-inclusive resorts with swim-up rooms include:
