Updated on August 19, 2015

Open Window French Polynesian Views


1. Four Seasons Bora Bora

The Four Seasons Bora Bora has 100 overwater bungalows with thatched grass roofs resting on stilts. Guests ride in golf cart on a wooden pathway above clear blue water, to one of the luxurious bungalows with a bathtub offering picturesque views of the lagoon and mountain views of majestic Mount Otemanu.

Each one bedroom hut has a king size bed and one queen size sofa bed with approximately 1120 square feet. Beds have down or hypoallergenic pillows. Rooms offer Internet access, multi-line telephones, refrigerator in the private bar, CD and DVD player, satellite television, complimentary coffee and tea and twice-daily housekeeping service. There are snorkel equipment and life preservers in a wooden storage unit on the deck.

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental


2. The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong

A stunning circular glass-walled bathroom with Sodashi soap. This Australian skin care company makes chemical-free soap exclusively for The Landmark Mandarin Oriental. Filling up the dramatic spherical spa tub for a good soak, there were plush cotton robes hanging next to the nearby soothing rainforest shower.

After a bath, I enjoyed putting some Happy Feet oil on my feet. It's a refreshing blend of peppermint to perk up hot and tired feet after climbing and exploring the hills of Hong Kong Island. There is also a bottle of tree tea oil to provide antibacterial protection and a deodorizing effect.

My feet enjoyed the plush slippers with the signature M on the top located next to the king size bed decorated with Frette linen and goose down bedding. Inside the walk-in wardrobe were black silk robes hanging inside. Very decadent.

4. Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong

Known as the Grand Dame of the MO (Mandarin Oriental) flagship, it's old world elegance with tradition and pomp.

I was lucky to stay overnight in an Oriental suite up on the 12th floor in rooms 1226 that connected with room 1227. Our suite offered one of the most spectacular bathroom I ever seen.

Beyond the spacious bedroom, was a magnificent bathroom with two marble basins, a walk-in shower and breathtaking stand-alone oval soaking bathtub in the center of the marble room.

Luxury Acqua Di Parma Italian bath products, rested in a silver holding tray next to a floor to ceiling glass window overlooking the Ferry Building, Hong Kong Ferris Wheel and Kowloon. During the day the views were mesmerizing. In the evening the lights were dazzling.

St. Regis Punta Mita Soaking Tub


5. St. Regis Punta Mita

The resort features 120 exquisitely appointed guest rooms and suites, each offer a large spa-like soaking bathtub and separate shower, plus an outdoor private shower with bougainvillea growing along the wall. The natural light and Remede bath products entice guests to take baths often after a day on the beach, pool or sightseeing.

The Shampoo Actif reenergizing hair & scalp system has sweet lupine complex, panthenol, citrus extracts and mint oil.

Mandarin Oriental Shanghai Views from my Bath


6. Mandarin Oriental Shanghai

Located in the Pudong newer side of Shanghai, our suite was decorated elegantly with a soft color palette and multi-million dollar views of the Huangpu River andThe Bund in Shanghai.

We had a luxury sitting area, and bedroom with a king-size bed dressed in luxurious Frette linens. Inside the closet were silk robes and plush slippers.

The sumptuous marble bathroom has a soaking bathtub positioned next to the floor-to-ceiling windows to take advantage of the magnificent city and river views. The shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bar soap and lotion are made by the modern Chinese lifestyle brand Shanghai Tang. It's infused with Mandarin Tea.

7. Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara

Bacara Resort offers large bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and a separate marble shower. Bath products include soy shampoo, pomegranate conditioner and a wonderful smelling duo of Citron de Vigne body wash and body lotion. After a bath, I slipped into a Frette bath robe and slippers.

The 450 sq. ft guest rooms have patios and balconies that connect to garden paths, scenic courtyards and picturesque water fountains. One feels as if they are staying in a luxury resort in the Mediterranean with village, partial ocean and ocean views.

Hot Tub with an Amazing View


8. Necker Island

Sir Richard Branson of the Virgin Empire has a private island paradise that I stayed at for one week with a group of friends. The Bali House that we stayed in had the most unique bathroom with no walls. It was a stone floor open to paradise with a rock shower.

The Great House Master Suite offers an outdoor bath with views for miles of the British Virgin Islands. It's exquisite.


9. Beaches Turks and Caicos

With powdery sand and lot's of all inclusive water sports, this resort is about enjoying the outdoors. It's a large complex offering four different villages with guest rooms and suites. One village offers an Italian ambiance, another French, near a Caribbean and Key West atmosphere. With 12-miles of beach fun, a bath at the end of the day, before dinner is ideal.

Room with the Best City View


10. Imperial Palace - Tokyo, Japan

The view from the 29th floor of the Imperial offers spectacular views of Tokyo and beyond. There is a deep soaking tub near the commode that offers a blow dryer, seat that warms up, water jet adjustments, automatic lid opening, automatic flushing, music buttons and a control panel.

      I prefer showers but a good soaking tub is so inviting. I love the photos and how they portray a "spa" feeling. Thanks for the fun look at bathtubs around the world.
