We spend a lot of time in the bathroom. A good bathroom is a necessity, a beautiful bathroom is a luxury, but the following bathrooms, are just out of this world. I like to put them in the ‘Ultra Luxe’ box. A section of the ‘marketing mix’ which has been thoroughly thought about and is all about the experience. I am sure you won’t forget a shower or bath in the following properties in a hurry. I have travelled the world to bring you my top 8 ‘ultra luxe’ bathrooms.
The Outpost Lodge overlooks the Luvuvha River, found in one of the most remote parts of Kruger National Park in in South Africa. All bedrooms are en suite and have amazing views over the park & river. Each suite comes with an outdoor terrace and day bed.
The Tree House at Beho Beho Game Reserve, Selous, Tanzania. Outdoor showers are not a new concept, but this is a tree house… with running water and flushing toilets. Luxury safari’s have stepped up and now you can shower in luxury in the most rural of areas.
The Romantic Pool Residence on Velaa Private Island in the Maldives. Cast away and only accessible by boat, could one ever get bored of bathing and looking out over the Indian Ocean?
Villa Le Rose in Tuscany, a property of one of the Ferragamo brothers, this bathroom was big enough for a 3 piece sofa and completely made out of marble. One of the most incredible bathrooms I have seen. Step just outside the bedroom and you arrive in the ballroom – a great setting for a ball!
Chalet N in Lech, Austria is like showering in a rainforest of diamonds. The impressive chalet proves that luxury has no bounds.
The Luxury Beach Suite, Desroches Island, Seychelles. The spacious air-conditioned double bedroom overlooks the private deck, with its secluded outdoor shower under the exotic island foliage on the water’s edge. To boost the sensual experience, the large bathroom is intimately enclosed by lush island vegetation and boasts four showers!
The honeymoon bath in Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge is built into a well concealed corner of your private terrace where you can soak under the African skies and watch the Big 5 casually pass you by.
Chalet Quezac in Tignes les Brevieres – this is one of only two glass baths in the world! A difficult concept to grasp, and for many, not sure how enticing it is. But for the sheer fact these baths are a very limited edition, it had to be included.
