12 of the world’s best luxury hotel bathrooms

Form and function find equal balance in these incredible hotel bathrooms that showcase beautiful design and luxurious amenities.

The value of a beautiful bathroom cannot be overstated. While the fundamentals may be easy to execute, such as a spacious shower, deep tub and plenty of bench space on the vanity, the elevated aesthetic and nice-to-have touches are often overlooked – particularly in the hotel space. From Rome, Dubai and Paris to Zurich, Helsinki, London, Tokyo and beyond, we’ve unearthed 12 hotel bathrooms with showstopping design concepts that elevate everyday morning rituals to extraordinary heights.

The Lana, Dubai

Created by award-winning architecture firm, Foster + Partners, The Lana in Dubai is the newest addition to the Marasi Coastline. The February opening revealed a visual concept with a French tilt, with soft hues, parquet flooring and white wainscoting appearing throughout. The hotel has eight bar and dining venues, a soon-to-open Dior Spa and 225 guest rooms and suites. For an unforgettable bathing experience, book a stay in the Junior Suite or Marina Terrace Suite.

La Sultana, Marrakech

In the Kasbah’s centre, La Sultana Marrakech is a boutique hotel with exemplary service. The 28 guest rooms and suites are expertly decorated with eye-catching artwork, bold colour palettes and plush textiles. The lush gardens, pool, spa, gym and rooftop terrace with city views may be the initial drawcards for hotel guests, but the bathrooms deserve a moment in the limelight, too. Carved timber ceilings, marble columns, tailormade tadelakt and gleaming metallic hardware take centre stage in the generous hotel bathrooms, the best of which are found in the Deluxe Suite and Peacock Riad Room.

Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel, Paris

A quintessential Parisian aesthetic is established through layered materials and luxurious furnishings, while butler service, a pool, spa, fitness studio, hair salon and gourmet dining venues round out the full-service offering. However, those seeking a private sanctuary should book a stay in Le Grands Appartments.

With a pool, library, Bulgari Spa, alfresco terraces and a restaurant with views over the tomb of Emperor Augustus, the Bulgari Hotel is a destination in itself.

Boasting a Michelin-starred Italian restaurant, sprawling walled gardens, a spa and private hair-air balloon rides, the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze is a leafy haven of tranquillity in the centre of Florence.

The concept has been extended to the hotel bathrooms, with the majestic amenities of the Royal Suite one of the best examples.
