A thing of beauty is a joy forever. We won’t blame you if you take forever to come out of these when you travel next!
No matter where you travel, one of the first things you want to do when you get to your hotel, is to take a refreshing shower. Or soak in the tub with some soft Jazz and a glass of wine, to wash away the travel stress. For many, the bathroom is more than just a functional area – it’s a place of relaxation, peace, and tranquillity. It sets the pace for the rest of your vacation and is a vital part of luxury travel. Most luxury hotels pay a lot of attention to create impressive baths, which will give their guests a unique experience. Here’s a look at some gorgeous designer ones…
The Penthouse at L’Apogee Courchevel, France
With L’Apogée Courchevel’s position in Le Jardin Alpin at the top of Courchevel 1850, guests in its penthouse enjoy extraordinary views all the way down the beautiful valley. The basins and bath in the penthouse are covered in black Zimbabwe granite, surrounded by gold leaf mosaics, and gold-plated taps created by THG Paris. The heated floor is made in Fiore di Bosco marble and bears the star which is the emblem of the property.
Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, French West Indies
Jacques Grange, a French designer, imagined the rooms of Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France as a real travel diary, combining simplicity and elegance. Each piece of art refers to a notable event, souvenir, meeting, or discovery in the life of the collector. Thus, the bathroom transports us to Morocco through Moroccan Zellige (traditional mosaic) and Moucharabieh pattern (harem window), but also on Easter Island with robe-stands referring to its famous statues. The cast iron bathtub is a historical model by the Italian brand Devon & Devon, which creates bathrooms inspired by the ambiances of the European tradition and the refined American design of the first half of 20th century.
Armani Hotel Milano, Italy
Bathrooms at the Armani Hotel Milano were personally designed by Giorgio Armani and are mainly characterised by the Armani Silk Georgette marble chosen for sculptural, aesthetic, and sensual qualities which embody Armani design.
Ultima Geneva Grand Villa, Switzerland
Even in a a property like this contemporary villa on the shores of Lake Geneva, where everything has been designed to impress, this bathroom stands out in. The Ultima Geneva Grand Villa has art-adorned walls, a vibrant arcade room and a huge, marbled garage that can store up to 10 vintage cars. Amongst it all, some guests steal a moment to themselves in this luxurious bathroom, featuring products from Swiss Perfection and Bvlgari. It feels as though you are looking out to the top of the world, overlooking the alpine forest that surrounds much of the property. Romantically atmospheric and completely private… what more could you want?
