There are some that might think it's just too decadent to have a private pool on the deck just outside your Maldives water villa, especially considering there is a warm lagoon perfect for swimming just below. But these private pools are an increasingly popular feature that impress many, many guests.
In fact, there are quite a few Maldives water-villa resorts that have private pools on some or all of the water villas, and most of them are small enough to be considered “plunge pools”. This is because they are more meant for splashing around in than for swimming laps upon laps. Below, you'll find a list that showcases the 6 best resorts that feature private-pool water villas, including a few that are surprisingly affordable for many travelers. All the resorts below also receive great guest reviews and thus, are a very good value in their class.
