What is it about water that makes people feel sexier? It's not merely that it helps you come clean. It's about gravitational easing, and the delightful buoyancy that makes swimmers light on their feet. When you're alone with someone you love, in a beautiful setting, just add water: The effect is simply intoxicating.

Spas have known all along that water soothes and heals. But they don't generally offer the kind of seclusion romantic travelers crave. If you're part of a couple that can't imagine a great vacation without a private place to dip, look for a resort that features rooms with a private plunge or swimming pool. These are some we know of:

1. Sandals Grenada (Grenada)

Sandals is known as a honeymoon haven, and its first resort on Grenada offers a multitude of private swimming pools. In its Italian Village section, many suites have a private plunge pool, which is particularly impressive when you realize they are several stories above the ground. Its freestanding rondovals and millionaire suites nearby also feature private pools. Adults only.

2. Jade Mountain (St. Lucia)

Part of the beloved Anse Chastanet resort's 600 acres, modernist Jade Mountain sits high on a hill (the better to view those iconic Pitons from) above it. Here, every room features its own private plunge pool. Rooms have three walls; the fourth is open and you just may feel as if you're in your own private Garden of Eden. Adults only.

3. Spice Island Beach Resort (Grenada)

On Grand Anse Beach, this all-inclusive resort contains private pool suites, each with a plunge pool and double whirlpool bath. And they're located only fifty feet from the beach. The more luxurious Royal Private Pool suites measure 1,500-square feet and consist of a large bedroom, living room, and dining area. The main attraction, though, are the 16 x 20 private pools. Each is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and features a private patio and sun deck that hold a sauna for two.

4. Ottley’s Plantation Inn (St. Kitts, West Indies)

Weather in the Caribbean ranges from warm to hot, and there's nothing like having a private plunge pool to cool off in. Once the owner's estate on a sugar plantation, Ottley's has been carefully restored and tended by its family owners. All Supreme Rooms include a Jacuzzi, patio, sundeck, and plunge pool. There's also a 66-foot-long, spring-fed pool if you feel like socializing with occupants of other guest quarters.
