At a time when “new normal” and “social distancing” are phrases that have become normal, those who are choosing to travel are doing so with care. We all love pools, but might not be excited about diving in with dozens of strangers at the moment so we have discovered this collection of resort suites with private pools. You can enjoy an intimate vacation without sacrificing convenience.
