If you haven’t been able to tell from my Instagram, not only do I love a good luxury hotel, but I am obsessed with a good luxury hotel bathroom. Living in NYC it’s hard to have the kind of luxurious bathroom a bougie girl deserves, so when I jetset, one of the things I look for in my hotel is an amazing bathroom. Huge bathtubs, modern or unique decor, plush robes and amazing views are just a few of the things that catch my eye. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite luxe bathrooms from across the globe, and trust me, they’ll have you ready for a trip and a rose petal bubble bath!
You would think the Maldives couldn’t get any better, but at the One&Only Reethi Rah you’ll discover a paradise within a paradise. Surrounded by the wonders of the Indian Ocean, the One&Only provides guests with all the luxurious comforts their hearts desire, and when your heart gets full and you need rest from all the luxe, just head back to your Water Villa, fill your marble tub with the complimentary exotic bath salts, slide in and soak your troubles away as you gaze out at the endless blue waters.
The Thai islands are truly a luxurious adult playground and the Conrad Koh Samui Residences are where the cool kids play. From guided dive tours and personal VIP suites at the spa, there’s so much to do at the Conrad, but why leave the room at all when you can stay in the bathroom of your Ocean View Pool Villa all day. An oversize soaking tub, television and access to your private pool right at your finger tips. What more could you need?
In this luxe travel life one should strive to indulge in the 3 Bs with every hotel stay: Bentleys, Butlers & Bath Maidens. Now you might not get the Bentley while you’re out on safari at the Sanctuary Baines’ Camp, but if you’re staying in one of the five suites, bath maidens can set up an opulent ‘Sky Bath’ so you can enjoy an indulgent soak under the stars on your own private viewing deck. Once you’re done, butlers will wheel your bed out onto the deck for a night under the stars, overlooking the shimmering waters of the Boro River.
Paris, home of some of history’s kings and queens, so it only makes sense that you indulge like a king or queen when you’re enjoying at stay in the City of Light. At the Four Seasons Hotel George V, move on up to the Penthouse Suite and surround yourself with luxurious finishes and furnishings, sumptuous amenities, and breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower from your own private terraces. The highlight of the suite, however, is a bathroom truly fit for royalty. It’s separated from the bedroom by a sliding glass door and fitted with floor to ceiling marble. The room’s separate walk-in shower is filled with white orchids in glass cases, Baccarat light fixtures, and a mirror wall with a built-in plasma TV. The centerpiece is a beautiful infinity-edge bathtub filled with jets and a color therapy system. I doubt any peasants, or rowdy kids, will lose their heads after some relaxing in this bathroom.
A short hop and a world away from the hustle and bustle of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires, Ponta dos Ganchos is a privately-owned peninsula surrounded by the stunning waters of the Emerald Coast, guaranteeing total privacy. Spend the day exploring downtown Florianópolis, taking a culinary class with the resort’s chef, surfing, snorkeling or watching dolphins, before heading back to your Esmeralda Bungalow and unwinding in your dry sauna and oceanfront whirlpool bathtub with sea view and private spa area. Céu na Terra!
If you’re looking for the zen of Asia, but without the 14+ hour flight, then the Banyan Tree Cabo Marques is what you need. This Mexican luxury resort with a distinctive Asian feel, is built on high stilts over sheer cliffs to give you sweeping views, and the best view on the property is from the bathroom of the Ocean View Pool Villa. The modern bathroom featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows with endless views of the Pacific, leaves you with no choice but to Zen out and recharge your chakras under the gaze of the Mexican sun.
