Room extension

I am building a guest room detached from my house with its own power supply to it. I will be running 110 & 220 to this room for lighting and ac/heat (220v window unit) I am installing a 200 amp service box on my pole and a 200 amp 8 spot break box in the room it will be approximately a 40 run my question is what wire do I need to get to bury and provide the power to the guest room?

Will this room be a stand-alone apartment such as having it's own kitchen, sleeping, laundry facilities? How big is the building?

A guest room can be served by way less than 200/amps.

I doubt your utility will allow a second service to the property.

The cabin is 12x32 and will have its own plumbing, tankless water heater, and 2-220v window unit ac/heater units along with 2 ceilings fans and normal amenities (cable,tv, microwave, fridge)
