All those Phobic of mirrors, beware! At the Royal Monceau Raffles a room dressed with glass and steel awaits, a near-futuristic setting, very attractive to aficionados of modern architecture. Behind this design, one recognises Philippe Stark who wanted the bathrooms to have an extremely clean look. Other strengths include Japanese toilets Toto, a large bath and a separate Hamman shower room, Clarins products for adults and Bonpoint for the children. Narcissus paradise!
For a change of scenery head for hotel Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. Designed as exotic and tropical gardens surrounded by stone walls dripping with water, exceptional bathrooms welcome one with palm and coconut trees sprung from nowhere. Then a flagstone path leads to an exotic shower hung from a tree or a bath set at flower bed level. Bathing in a middle of the jungle, who says better?
Exotic still, one flies to the Seychelles to stay at the Four Seasons on the Mahé Island. Addicted to blue lagoons and paradisiac landscapes? No doubt you are in the right place. Enclaved beside the infinity pool of your private villa, bathroom and Jacuzzi, very chic in wood and marble, offer spectacular views of the Indian Ocean.
Have you heard of Kangaroo Island located south of Australia? Unique in the world, it is an ideal observatory for typical Australian fauna. For an unforgettable stay, book the Southern Ocean lodge, lost in the middle of nature and welcoming bathrooms worthy of the name. On the program, handcrafted granite bathtubs, limestone flooring, large windows with breath-taking views of the surrounding bush and its lovely inhabitants (kangaroos, koalas…). Exceptional.
Who says Las Vegas says grandeur! At the Tropicana, it is a large bathroom with high tech that awaits you. Indeed, the imposing shower room makes way for a shower equipped with LED lights that change colour according to water temperature. You are more bath than shower? No problem, the bathroom also hosts a Jacuzzi bath with massage function and view of the sin city! Finally, for the more modest, men and women have each their own separate toilet.
Who has not dreamed of relaxing in the bath facing the Eiffel Tower? To realise this dream, head for the Mandarin Oriental in Paris, where the most prestigious suites welcome immaculate white bathrooms and their huge baths with views over the rooftops of the capital or the unmissable Eiffel Tower. After enjoying luxury toiletries signed Diptyque and once out of the water, put on a bathrobe signed frette to dry then in a silk kimono before curling up on one of the sun-loungers on the private terrace. Enchanting!
