I donít know if I would consider a better upgrade to room with pool access or to the one with private pool.

Even if small pool, rooms at ground floor without pool access have better privacy, because they are closed from outside

there are lot of people looking at rooms with pool access, especially at the ones near the main pool.

I would consider a true upgrade to prestige suite only.

Prestige suites were very spacious ....
the one with plunge pool offer good privacy for inside the room .. but upstair guests can see the plunge pool area from their balcony

Pool access rooms is quite unique as you could straight jump to the main pool from your room
It does offer less privacy for the room itself

No not a special occasion, however I booked during the last private sale and specifically clarified with our contact that I had booked the category below the the pool access (they have a confusing array of categories) as that is the one we wanted an upgrade to (subject to availability, of course!), so I was very surprised but delighted to receive the guarantee.

I stayed in a Prestige Suite. It is one of my favourite suites from all the hotels I have stayed in. The pool in the suite was nice but a touch cold and it is overshadowed by all of the hotel rooms above you so there is no privacy.

I would love to get the prestige suite (top floor or plunge pool with the upgrade but I really do not want to pay for the pool acess room which is a relatively big jump up in price from the plunge pool room as you would be paying for the executive lounge usage. Not an issue with other hotels to get a suite instead of just the excutive room with lounge benefits. Those who got the prestige suite was this an upgrade from the pool access room?

My recent experience staying at the Angasana hotel recently with pool access I can see there is little privacy with this room type.

I'm no fan of the pool access rooms either, everybody and their dog appears to be swimming by while you are relaxing on the terrace or step out of the shower with the curtains open....

So it really comes to the fact that the real upgrade is to a prestige suite.

One can’t even swim from the room terrace to the main pool together with a room mate since it would require to carry key card on the pool which is neither convenient nor wise.

I have stayed in one bedroom villa. While it was nice and private, the plunge pool was useless, very tiny, so used the main pool instead.

But prestige suite does not have privacy. your upstairs neighbor can look into your pool
