Let me paint a mental picture – You’re exhausted after a tiring day at work. All you want to do is to unwind in your bathtub and take a leisurely bath before hopping into your bed, without having to move more than an inch. Unfortunately, your bathtub is on the opposite side of your house, so you scrap the plan altogether because of course, you’re too lazy to walk so much.
How many times has this happened to you? How many times have you wished you had a bathtub right in your bedroom, just for the eccentricity of it?
You may or may not want it in your own home, but here’s your chance of experiencing that ultra-relaxing bath nevertheless. Check out our list of the best hotel rooms with a bathtub, and indulge yourself in some bubbly luxury!
Hotel du Vin, Brighton, England
Settled among the cobbled streets of the shopping district of Brighton, Hotel du Vin is a collection of 17th-century buildings. Only a stones-throw away from the sea, this posh hotel is the ideal place to soak in England’s culture; this free-standing bath in one of its rooms is proof enough, don’t you think?
Casa Olivi, Italy
Not only does this exquisite villa boast of breath-taking views of the lush Marche region, it also has one of the best in-bedroom baths we’ve ever come across. Apart from this, Casa Olivi also offers a glorious infinity pool, well-furnished spaces to de-stress, as well as unusual facilities such as a Japanese grill and an outside cooking area.
Lloyd Hotel, Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s Lloyd Hotel is a trademark in itself. Apart from its 117 rooms (all of which have been tastefully decorated), this quirky hotel also has multiple other facilities like world-class restaurant, library, art exhibitions, catwalks, and meeting rooms. The above photo is a guest room with a tub, and a swing!
Soho House, New York
One of New York’s most hip boutique hotels, the Soho House has high-end rooms that are individually styled with designer furnishings, full bars and flat-screen TVs. And then there’s this bathroom with sliding doors… *sigh*
Ponta dos Gonchos, Brazil
Brazil’s Vila Esmarelda Bungalow is our idea of a perfect private paradise. Not only do you get your own private wine cellar (I mean, isn’t that reason enough?), you also get that view. From your bathtub. In your bedroom.
Hacienda Na Xamena, Ibiza
Ibiza’s Hacienda Na Xamena is not a regular spa hotel. We get it, regular spa hotels are supposed to get their baths right. But waking up to THAT, and taking a bath again, with THAT view, wow!!
And not only are there in-room baths and hot tubs with views to die for, there are also three pools, a spa and a suspended waterfall on offer at this resort.
Kesgrave Hall, Suffolk, England
This elegant country hotel surprisingly has chic, modern rooms that are individually decorated and have free WiFi, flat-screen TVs and minibars filled with complimentary soft drinks. And should you choose an upgraded room, you’ll also get to enjoy one of these lovely free-standing tubs.
Babington House, England
Another country house hotel, the Babington House is an 18th-century building that has rooms that look like something straight out of a designer’s magazine. Other amenities of this hotel include the acclaimed Cowshed spa with both indoor and outdoor heated pools, a kids' club, tennis courts, and lastly, a bath tub right at the foot of your bed!
Astarte Suites, Greece
Perched upon a cliff, this awe-inspiring resort has rooms that come with their own private cave-like Jacuzzi. If that isn’t reason enough to go here, we don’t know what else is!
Vintage House, Australia
An 1860's miner’s cottage-turned boutique hotel, Vintage House Daylesford sits high on almost an acre of land with gorgeous views of the surrounding Wombat State Forest and Doctors Gully in Daylesford, Australia. Look at this suite, where you can soak in the tub and then take a nap immediately afterwards. Bliss, isn’t it?
