World's Sexiest Hotel Pools

by Ondine Cohane


Where: Koh Yao Noi, Phang Nga Bay, Thailand

The crowd: Fashionable and well-financed Brits and Americans looking for a rarified Thai getaway. From Phuket, the resort is most often accessed by private helicopter.

How's the water? Utterly private. Few hotel pools are as impressive as the one outside of your private villa, at 200 feet long. You'll never have to fight for lap lanes, however, as this baby is for you and you only (no worries, your neighbors all have their own, too). And it's très private in other respects, as lush tropical landscaping prevents voyeurs from spying on any wet-and-wild goings-on. The pool ledges are smooth and rounded—all the better for comfy canoodling.

The poolside tipple: Since this is the region where part of Man With a Golden Gun was filmed, follow Mr. Bond with a martini, shaken not stirred.

The hotel: A great mix of seclusion and service, the 56 new villas all come with a butler to play Jeeves when you need him around—and who swiftly slips away when you want to be à deux. The villas are so well kitted out that many couples never leave them. But there's also a two-level wine cellar, a spa, and sunken bars where you can sip cocktails and survey the iconic limestone outcroppings that jut out of the ocean.
