Battle of the Bowls: 10 Luxurious Bathrooms From Around the World

Bathrooms are about much more than just doing your duty when nature calls. They can be a luxurious retreat inside your home, or wherever you may be. They can also a place for you to show off your sense of style, and some new bathroom technology, too.

In random order, I present ten of the world’s coolest, most luxurious bathrooms:

10. The Ritz, Paris

Paris and the Ritz have both been setting trends for as long as they’ve been around. Put them together and you get one amazing place. The bathrooms in Paris’ Ritz hotel are amazing. With real gold leaf, marble walls and swan-shaped faucets, this luxury hotel was an obvious choice for our list.

9. The Swisshorn Gold Palace, Hong Kong

What is more luxurious than pure gold? Nothing. This hotel, built by a famous Chinese jeweler, had toilets, baths and showers that were all completely gilded. Unfortunately, in 2008 when gold’s value started rising, the hotel owner decided to melt the six tons of gold that it took to build the hotel. All the gold, except for his toilet, was melted and put to use at his jewelry stores.

8. Hyatt on the Bund, Shanghai

With huge windows, the Hyatt on the Bund’s bathrooms are sure to provide you with a great view of the world’s most populated city. Take a bath and relax while you overlook the cityscape and the Huangpu river.

When people think of Las Vegas hotels, most don’t think of the Golden Nugget. Once they see this bathroom, though, that will change. The abundance of black marble and modern vanity lights help make this hotel’s bathrooms one of Las Vegas’ most luxurious.

6. TriBeCa Homes

This home, currently selling for 17.5 million bucks, has quite the master bathroom. Other than the drawers, the whole bathroom is made of marble and glass. With a throne room like this you might want some home security system to protect it. Now that is luxury at its finest.

5. Cayman Islands

This 35 million dollar mansion in the Cayman Islands has a bathroom that does not disappoint. Two sinks, lots of style, oh and it’s huge. Many would want to buy this place just for the bathrooms.

This bathroom may appear as if it came straight out of the stone age, but imagine taking a bath, here. Every single stone was laid by hand, which seems to add to the coziness of this bathroom.
