When you’re looking for the perfect hotel, you’re looking for luxury. You want to relax and enjoy a comfortable bed, great facilities and hopefully a wonderful view. The bathroom isn’t always high on your list but don’t overlook it! The hotel bathroom can be a great place to relax. You can indulge in a warm bath, or get ready for a night out with luxury his-and-hers sinks.
We’ve rounded up some of the most stunning hotel bathrooms on the globe. Until now, your idea of luxury might have been a complementary bottle of shampoo. Well, prepare to be amazed. After the stress of travel, you’ll need a relaxing bathroom! Some of these rooms are included for their incredible views. Soaking in the bath while overlooking the New York skyline is a dream-come-true for many. Some of the bathrooms are included for their sheer luxury architecture and some are just a little bit weird. They’re all decadent, all indulgent, and – unfortunately – they all cost a fortune.
Maharani Suite, Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace (India)
If this bathroom makes you feel like a Queen, well that’s because it was designed for one. The luxury Indian finishes are so remarkable that the Queen herself stayed here. India is already the home of the most beautiful fabrics and rich decor. The Maharani Suite takes full advantage of this, offering an elegant and tasteful bathroom.
Penthouse Suite, Four Seasons Hotel George V (Paris)
This is probably the most expensive suite on the list. At £15,000 a night, it costs more than some people earn in a year. Is it worth it? Well, you’ll never see another bathroom quite like it. The infinity bath itself is as large as a small room. The attention to detail and luxury is unlike anything else, it feels like a grand old Parisian Palace. Oh, and there’s a statue at the end of your bath. Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but book this suite and you might not want to leave the hotel!
Jade Mountain Resort (St. Lucia)
Each of these stunning bathrooms comes complete with huge windows that overlook the Caribbean sea. Equipped with either a round jacuzzi tub or an infinity pool bath, you can soak in true style. The perfect green-blue sea stretches out to the rolling St. Lucia mountains. With all this right outside your window, it’ll be tough to drag yourself away from the bath! Each of the rooms have a lovely open feel with the warm Caribbean air floating into your bathroom.
The Kingston Treehouse, Lion Sands Game Reserve (South Africa)
Have you ever fancied sharing your bathroom with a lion? Well, now’s your chance. The Kingston Treehouse is an executive suite built away from the main hotel complex. It’s out in the wild where you’ll often see animals pacing back and forth, popping in to say hello. The treehouse is cased in large glass windows. You’ll have incredible views of the landscape and the animals themselves. If there’s a lion about, it might just be your scariest trip to the bathroom yet!
Penthouse, Trump Soho (New York)
The New York skyline is a true beauty. Visitors will spend days trying to find the best spot in the city to capture it. But the best view isn’t from the top of the Empire State Building, or from the Statue of Liberty. It’s from the bathroom of the Penthouse at Trump Soho. And if you book a room, it’s all yours. While tourists desperately search for the best photo opportunity, you can just lie in the bath and admire the perfect view.
The Fujiya Inn, Yamagata (Japan)
This one isn’t about decadence or incredible views. The Fujiya Inn is all about serenity and simplicity. It boasts a traditional Japanese decor of simple bamboo furnishings. It provides a simple room that offers complete tranquility. The smell, the environment and the quiet are all tailored to ensure that you are as relaxed as possible. If you’ve spent all day racing around the busy Japanese city, chances are, you need to wind down. Where better than Japan to indulge in complete meditation and achieve a serene calm?
Upper Pacific Suite, Post Ranch Inn (USA)
This one is all about the view. Situated at the top of 1,200 foot cliffs, your bathroom has panoramic views of the Californian coast. The room itself is luxurious and is finished on all sides with floor-to-ceiling glass. This means you get the best possible view. (Though try not to sneak a glance into your neighbour’s room!) If you suffer from vertigo, this may not be for you. The cliffs run straight down below you. It really is quite something and you’ll never take another bath like it.
Iconic City View Room, Shangri La Hotel, The Shard (London)
The Shard is Europe’s tallest building, and one of London’s newest skyscrapers. So when you book a room at the Shangri La, you know that you’re getting modern luxury and the best view in Europe. London’s skyline is iconic – with the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and its modern architecture. It’s a beauty to behold. The bathroom itself is pure luxury. You’ll find every modern gadget here. The only thing missing is a space age bath!
Star Bath, Sanctuary Baines’ Camp (Botswana)
Is there anything more wonderful than a bath under the stars? That’s exactly what you get when you check in to Sanctuary Baines’ Camp in Botswana. Did you know that the stars look completely different from the Southern Hemisphere? After a night here, you will. You can stretch out in your tub, with a glass of wine, and admire the constellations you never knew existed. The warm African air and the sounds of the wildlife will all add to the atmosphere. The distant roar of a lion might just add to the thrill of the evening. Either way, you won’t forget this place, or this bathroom, in a hurry.
Bathrooms are where you find that extra little bit of luxury in a hotel. We all love a great hotel bed but don’t forget about the bath. After a long day of sightseeing or business meetings, the bathroom will make all the difference. You’ll pay a pretty penny for the bathrooms on this list, but it will be worth it.
