If a room with your own private pool is not on your bucket list, it should be! One of my favourite hotel rooms with a pool is this room at the JW Marriott Venice, which we stayed at a few years ago. Nothing beats dipping your legs in a cool private pool as you look out over the Venice lagoon.. magic!

Of course, you won’t get a pool room at this JW Marriott for $125 per night. In fact, you wouldn’t usually get the pool room featured in this article for $125 per night either, but we have a fantastic 5 day, 4 night stay up for auction in the very same room as the one shown above at the Crown Lanta Resort & Spa in Koh Lanta, Thailand. This 4 night stay is valued at $1,000 and with just a few days to go, is priced at just £377/$490.

For those that don’t know, our travel auctions are unique one-off items which are auctioned directly on behalf of the hotel or tour operator. You can bid and win your dream holiday or luxury travel item in our auctions. Bid from anywhere in the world, all you need is a Paypal account.

Realistically, this 4-night stay with your own private pool may sell for slightly more, but with just 2 days of this auction left, it will undoubtedly sell for far less than the RRP. Bid only what you want to pay to stay here and you might just bag a bargain!

If this doesn’t float your boat, there are over 60 more auction items to choose from.
